How to Neuter Marxism

by

Roughly defined, for purposes here, Marxism is the idea that you can separate people into groups, the oppressor and the oppressed, and that you can empower the oppressed to overthrow the oppressor and thus usher in peace and prosperity or whatever utopian desire you have. It sounds silly when you condense it down to its essence, but that’s what it is.

The way Marxism works is that it attacks structures of power. These structures of power are built by powerful people, and represent the “oppressors.” Meaning, the reason why the poor are poor is not because they choose to be poor, but because rich people force them to be poor. If this isn’t a defeatist mentality, I don’t know what is. Until you’re ready to take responsibility for your actions, and the outcomes of those actions (good or bad), you’re never going to escape your self-inflicted prison. In short, you’re giving the keys to your cell to people who don’t even know you exist, and then demanding they free you.

Marxism intends to have the oppressed rise up and use violence to throw down the oppressors.  But think of this: If you gave a bunch of guns to a bunch of weakling cowards who can’t succeed in life, what sort of revolution would you end up with? When Marxism was first implemented in Europe, it ended exactly the way it sounds like it would end: With a bunch of desperate failures bleeding out in the streets, uniformed soldiers marching over their corpses trying to keep their dirty blood off of their boots. This was the end of the first few Marxist revolutions. The headlines in the paper would read, “A bunch of criminals tried to break the law and got killed.”

So Marxism cannot succeed by causing the “oppressed” to rise up. It also requires the “oppressors” to weaken themselves. If you are someone who is successful, and by “successful” I mean able to put food in your mouth that you earned with your own labor, then you’ll understand how it works. See, if you had absolute confidence that you deserved your food, your clothing, your shelter, that God gave it to you because of your willingness to work and subject yourself to his commandments, commandments given to a free people so that they can govern themselves successfully, if you had this confidence that comes from sincere and real faith, and someone tried to take it from you, how much shame or sadness would you feel as you slaughtered them? I say you would feel none. Instead, you would feel gratitude to the God who gave you your food and shelter, as well as the God who gave you bullets and the power to defeat your enemies. Search the Old Testament. That’s the pattern of God’s people.

So Marxism, as the enemies of ancient Israel, attacks the powerful and successful with guilt. In Moses’ time, it is rumored that Balaam told the Moabites how to defeat Israel: Send prostitutes. Indeed, this had the intended effect. Now that men in Israel had broken their vows with prostitutes, they were weak and easily defeatable. Moses received word from God how to fix this problem: Slaughter the offenders, purify the nation, and then march on Moab, sparing none.

In today’s culture, Marxists try to shame the rich and successful, tries to entice us to act contrary to our best interests. They send us pornography and other vices, they try to get us to do that which we know is wrong. Feeling shame, they then exploit our weakness with guilt. When the weak and the miserable rise up to take our heritage, we feel bad if we have to defend ourselves, and feel compassion for the people who would slaughter us. This makes us weak and vulnerable.

The remedy is simple: Stop shaming yourself with disgusting acts you know to be wrong. Turn back to God, embrace his commandments, and take confidence that the things you own, the things you call yours, are given to you by God, and God requires you be ready to protect it.

When the Marxist hordes try to take it from you, you won’t feel any guilt or shame, but vigorously defend it from them.

Now, while we don’t feel bad for vigorously defending our rights, we should remember that the same God who commands us to take up arms also commands us to give out alms. The poor are not our responsibility, but we are to make things available so that they can take their future into their own hands. For instance, in ancient Israel, they would leave some of their harvest lying in the field, so that the poor could pick it up themselves. If they can pick up gleanings, then they can work for hire to harvest the crops as well, and if they can do that, then they are strong enough to work their own fields. This sort of charity — offering work instead of hand-outs — is the kind of thing that completely dispels Marxism. Why would a poor person, who depends upon the rich for their paycheck, ever rise up and slaughter the golden goose?

    Bam! Very well put. Marxism is the philosophy of resentment. If you can’t meet the standards then seek to destroy and undermine the test.

    A psychological principle mirrors this artifact. Cognitive dissonance. If I have one sincerely held belief and see clear contrary evidence what do I do?

    1) Change my sincerely held belief.
    2) Destroy the source of the evidence.

    The Snow White story is a great example of this. When the queen isn’t the fairest she seeks to maintain her ideal, her core self worth, of herself by destroying Snow White. Communism in fairy tale form.

    It’s important to recognize. The debate is not a rational debate but a debate with people who are psychologically stunted, damaged or hold sincere beliefs, core to their existence, that simply are not true.

    The modern snowflake generation effect is another manifestation. Many kids have grown up with parents that constantly tell them how wonderful they are. They have a cabinet full of soccer participation trophies. Their fragile egos have not been forged n the hot furnace of painful experience, but artificially created out of “self esteem” vapor.

    When confronted with the reality of the world, where very, very, very, very few people are actually special and it takes a very, very, very, very long time on a very, very, very, very hard road to become special, they break psychologically. Their ego is destroyed.

    Pure cognitive dissonance. So, what to do? I can accept that I’m not special or destroy the system that tells me the truth. What to do?

    Roll out the protests, the “down with the system” chants. Let’s blame the patriarchy, white privilege, or whatever else for my broken sense of self.

    If enough of them get together you will see a revolution (a punishing of the successful) that maintains their sense of “specialness.” People with a common ax to grind will unite under the banner of social justice (or whatever slogan sounds good) to start a revolution that will right the world and restore them to their proper place as the special people they know themselves to be.

    Of course, the people that remind them that they are not special, beautiful, smart or witty must die. But, ya know, price of doing business…

    Very, very, very dangerous stuff.

    The attack on successful families, the attack on beautiful art, the attack on real culture are all symptoms of this. That’s why the idea of beauty, standards and order repel them.

    If you want to see if a person is liberal or not show them this picture:

    If you’re conservative, you’ll like to see happy good looking people having a family and doing good looking people stuff.

    If you a liberal it will trigger you to the 10th degree. You’ll spout some bulls*it about inclusion, minorities, gays or transsexuals.

    Vice versa for this crap in the link below (NSFW). Conservatives will be repulsed and liberals will appreciate it. They’ll call it brave, praise the attack on cis-normative standards, etc.

    Very easy political test and very accurate.

      I think Neitzsche’s slave morality is very apt here. They grew up as slaves, unable to think for themselves, never given any real confidence in their own abilities, but shielded from the awful reality of reality. (Slaves are, in effect, humans who grew up sheltered from reality.) They see their master as their oppressor, and have no awareness at all of what it is their master is doing, and so blame the master for their problems, rather than learning how to master their own problems and free themselves.

      It is our downfall if we ourselves become part of this mentality. Since we’ve already overcome our unwillingness to face reality head on, all that’s left is the shame of our superiority and success. That’s what they try to have us focus on, and if we fall for it, we will not defend ourselves and our success, and that’s how they will win.

    “So Marxism, as the enemies of ancient Israel, attacks the powerful and successful with guilt.”

    It is no surprise that Marxism comes from Jewish thought. The reason why is fairly obvious. Think about it for a minute…

    One of the marks of a cult is that the members of the cult have some special attribute simply by being members of the cult. For example, if I’m born Jewish I’m one of “God’s chosen” simply by being born into a Jewish family and going along with the program. (I.e. some nominal amount of work like a Bat Mitzvah.)

    Contrast that with a real accomplishment:
    1) Dead lifting 1000 lbs.
    2) Getting a PhD in physics.
    3) Being a NASCAR driver.
    4) Being a Navy SeAL.
    5) Etc…

    No one is born into one of the real categories of “special,” they must earn them by a brutal filtering process that requires a lifetime of dedication. (Way harder than just joining the religion your were born into and doing the classes.)

    Of course, once you get there to a real level of accomplishment you have a supreme sense of accomplishment. As you should. An accomplished person will almost always want others to feel a similar accomplishment and will almost never seek to tear others down.

    But back to the poor cult member. So the Jew has his self esteem wrapped up in the fact that he has a special covenant with God. Now, the real world doesn’t respect his beliefs. (Not in the least!)

    When he looks at himself and then looks at those around him it is hard to feel “special” in the sense that others seem to be having a great time, even though they aren’t “chosen.”

    This, of course, breeds cognitive dissonance. His only worth is the fact that I’m a member of the chosen but the world sure doesn’t look like I’m all that chosen. Without being a member of the chosen he is just another ugly fat weirdo in a crazy outfit. So, what do I do?

    Well, either he admits that he isn’t special (too painful) or seeks to destroy that which reminds him of his self deception.

    (Imagine that mental gymnastics required to believe that your typical Hasidim is more favored by god than Tom Brady with his adulation, super bowl wins, hundreds of millions of dollars and beautiful family. That must level of self deception must belong in the self deception hall of fame.)

    Nietzsche’s famous ressentiment. There you go.

    The outcome is always well known. The cult member will seek to destroy that which reminds him of truth. That which reminds him of the fact that he isn’t special.

    And that, kids, is why they hate you.

    A good documentary to watch is “Wild Wild Country” on Netflix. Shows the workings of a cult and the affect of mass immigration. Really good. You can see the seething hate the “enlightened” members of the cult attack the regular people of the down. Ressentiment in real time.

    Oh, and if you are wondering what the New Testament says about the subject…..

    Titus 1:10-16 (KJV):

    “10 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:

    11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.

    12 One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, the Cretians are always liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.

    13 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

    14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

    15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.

    16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.”

    Wheeeeeelp. That is a doozy.

    Anyways, I guess if you believe in the Bible… Just sayin’
