People didn't notice it all that much when it started, but since Karl Marx spread his poison, Socialism has been infecting the world like a disease. It first took root in Russia, then spread to China and into parts of Europe. But those places were riper for it. Their people had no heritage of freedom, like we had here in the United States.
"What is a Fabian Socialist?
Politically Correct Resolution:
A Fabian Socialist is one who deceptively advocates a Marxist society; who seeks to achieve reform gradually, rather than through revolutionary means, by using the capitalistic system to fulfill their ideology of "Greedism"! For the Fabians, exploiting other ideologies is a useful tool!
The Fabian Society was founded on 4 January 1884 in London as an offshoot of a society founded in 1883 called The Fellowship of the New Life. When some members wanted to become politically involved to aid society's "fundamental transformation", it was decided that a separate society, the Fabian Society, also be set up. All members were free to attend both societies. The Fabian Society additionally advocated renewal of Western European Renaissance (Intellectual Awakening) ideas and their promulgation throughout the rest of the world.
The Fabian Society, was named – in honor of the Roman general Fabius Maximus (nicknamed "Cuncutator", meaning "the Delayer"). His Fabian strategy advocated tactics of harassment and attrition rather than head-on battles.
The Fabian strategy is a strategy where pitched battles and frontal assaults are avoided in favor of wearing down an opponent (the people) through a war of attrition and misdirection. While still avoiding decisive battles, the side employing this strategy harasses its enemy (the people) through skirmishes to cause chaos, attrition, disrupted supplies and to affect morale. Employment of this strategy implies that the eventual winners (the powers that are or want to be) believes that time is on their side. It was adopted when no feasible alternative strategy could be devised."
Then it started spreading into this country, with Teddy Roosevelt. In 1912 he formed the Progressive Party. Back then, few understood what Progressivism was, so they started the subtle indoctrination by simply referring to it as "democracy". Few understood that the United States was not founded as a democracy, it was founded as a Constitutional Republic. Democracy is essentially mob rule. As the analogy goes, it's like 3 wolves and 1 sheep voting on what's for dinner. People can vote away the rights and property of their neighbors and it turns into a big free for all, with everyone voting themselves something from everyone else's pockets, but because everyone gets something that they think is "for free", it becomes very popular. You can see the results of democracy now on Europe, especially in Greece!
"We have allowed our constitutional republic to deteriorate into a virtually unchecked direct democracy. Today's political process is nothing more than a street fight between various groups seeking to vote themselves other people's money. ( and freedoms? ) Individual voters tend to support the candidate that promises them the most federal loot in whatever form, rather than the candidate who will uphold the rule of law." -- Rep. Ron Paul
So in Europe, the Fabian Society ( George Bernard Shaw and his friends ) at the London School of Economics helped spread the indoctrination across that continent, and still, few even knew what Progressivism even meant. In fact, I grew up in the 60's and wasn't even aware of what it meant, until Glenn Beck started exposing it a few years ago, and giving us an education all about it. It stayed covert for all those decades, growing and doing its damage. But notice the wolf in sheep's clothing, in the stained glass window. Shaw is on the right, with the hammer.
In a nutshell:
"There is no difference between communism and socialism, except in the means of achieving the same ultimate end: communism proposes to enslave men by force, socialism - by vote. It is merely the difference between murder and suicide." -- Ayn Rand
So while Communism took over by revolution, like the ones that happened in Russia, China, North Korea, Cuba and Vietnam, Socialism took over by the vote - by tempting people with the lure of subtle slavery, by everyone getting something out of the pockets of everyone else. And Progressive ( Fabian ) Socialism, which is an even slower, more subtle form.
So Teddy Roosevelt and the Progressive Party continued the growing government controls over the economy that he'd started as President. Then came Wilson, who really went to town with it. Later FDR made things even worse and had similar policies as Obama has now, which led to the "Great Depression" lasting far longer than it would have, with Laissez-faire capitalism, and being far worse.
But the whole time, it was like a disease that festers for a long time, until it eventually takes over, then it explodes.
For all those decades, it began rotting American society. The indoctrination of school children began subtly, but really intensified in the 60's, and over the decades since then, has taken over the minds of our citizens until we reached the point we did last year, when 51% of the voters were so indoctrinated and messed up by the government schools, that they voted for a Progressive Socialist, without even understanding or admitting it.
So the Progressive movement intensified in the 60's and really went to work, changing our culture and society. It was even helped by the very rock music we listened to then, though I wasn't even aware of it until recently. And now when I listen to some of the same music, I hear what was in it - the propaganda slowly at work. Yet they still stayed covert with the Progressive label and kept it among those in the movement. To everyone outside of their inner circles, they simply made it sound like Progressives stood for "progress", while anyone who opposed them were like Luddites who resisted "progress".
And when they finally had a pretty good strangle hold on our society, as Glenn Beck predicted, at some point, the masks would come off and they would openly admit it, with pride.
“I prefer the word progressive, which has a real American meaning, going back to the progressive era at the beginning of the 20th Century. I consider myself a modern progressive.” - Hillary Clinton, July 23, 2007.
They were at the point where they controlled probably 90% of the media, had indoctrinated generations, and the wolf could finally emerge from the sheep's clothing.
It now appears that things were finally in place and prepared for the election of what I've referred to as the "Marxist Messiah". It was the point where they no longer needed to be subtle or “Fabian” about things. They had the upper hand, they controlled the media, and all the schools had been indoctrinating people since the 60's and dumbing them down, so they no longer knew our history, no longer understood the principles of freedom, and could be much more easily ruled.
So in 2008, Barack Obama was elected. For the entire century before, they had been waging a cultural cold war against the United States. Even the foundation of the Federal Reserve in 1913 was a move to centralize economic control over our banking system, so they could tighten the grip.
By having the Fed cause increased inflation, they could take an already dumbed-down and indoctrinated society and tighten the economic grip. They began slowly reducing the American standard of living, by increasing the money supply and thus devaluing our currency, so it buys less.
"There will be a slow decline in the value of the Dollar, a managed decline." - George Soros, Financial Times, October 23 2009.
Soros is known as an economic terrorist, and of course a Progressive.
So since Obama was elected, we've all noticed an intensification of the efforts to finish off this country and establish globalist socialist rule. Then Glenn Beck connected the dots and proved, with hard evidence, that the Progressives have and agenda, which has now been exposed as "Agenda 21", to essentially collapse and globalize the United States - the final step of consolidating globalist socialist control over the entire world.
Because, as they say at the Canada Free Press website, "Without America, there is no Free World". The Progressive Socialists have known this for a hundred years and now they're on the brink of achieving it.
So when Obama was elected in 2008, we all witnessed an intensification of this massive effort. It was accelerated. Yet few understood what was going on, unless they were long term fans of Glenn Beck, like myself, and were getting the equivalent of a college education that we never had, in the history of America, American Exceptionalism, and watching him present the verifiable evidence that we could all go and see on our own, and it was correct!
And since Obama has been re-elected again, we've seen the green light for this massive century-old project to be completed now. It's like the cold war they've been subtly waging for the past century against America, has entered the final stages. It seems to me like we're now witnessing what I call "Socialists Gone Wild". There are massive efforts at gun control all of a sudden, and these are not just because Obama was re-elected and is free to act now.
Again, Glenn Beck comes to explain it. Two things were used to keep people in slavery, throughout all the ages of humanity; Ignorance and disarming them.
“Under the decree of the shogun Toyotomi Hideyoshi (1536-1598), issued on the 8th day of the seventh month, Tensho 16, "The people of the various provinces are strictly forbidden to have in their possession any swords, short swords, bows, spears, firearms, or other types of arms. The possession of unnecessary implements makes difficult the collection of taxes and dues, and tends to foment uprisings."
( Most people were illiterate anyway, back then. )
"Sec. 1. Be it enacted,...That no freedman, free negro or mulatto, not in the military service of the United States government, and not licensed so to do by the board of police of his or her county, shall keep or carry fire-arms of any kind, or any ammunition, dirk or bowie knife, and on conviction thereof in the county court shall be punished by fine, not exceeding ten dollars, and pay the costs of such proceedings, and all such arms or ammunition shall be forfeited to the informer; and it shall be the duty of every civil and military officer to arrest any freedman, free negro, or mulatto found with any such arms or ammunition, and cause him or her to be committed to trial in default of bail." -- The Mississippi Black Code of 1865
"To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them." - George Mason ( One of the founders of the United States )
It was illegal to teach blacks to read when they were slaves in this country, and they were forbidden arms.
Oh, and think about this with regard to women too! Women were kept as property before they finally learned to read on a large scale, and then demanded the vote. In fact the Taliban and other radical Islamist factions forbid women from gong to school!
In fact we've recently seen the news coverage, about Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani Girl Shot by Taliban Militants, for learning to read and advocating that women do too!
You can't enslave literate and armed people!
Since the 60's, they've managed to unionize the teachers in this country, and the government school system has ruined entire generations. In fact we've all watched in frustration, as schools in the more socialist areas became little more than warehouses for unruly undisciplined students, where the teachers didn't even try to keep order anymore, yet alone actually teach anything. If students learned things, it had to be despite the government school systems.
“A massive U.S. Education Department survey, “Adult Literacy In America”, has shown that as many as 90 million Americans over the age of 15 are woefully incompetent. Or in the more colorful characterization of American expatriate Bill Bryson, “They are as stupid as pig dribble”. Specifically, 90 million American adults were judged incapable of writing a letter, fathoming a bus schedule, or adding and subtracting, even with the help of a calculator.” - “The Sovereign Individual”, By Davidson & Mogg
Keeping people ignorant and disarming them are the most effective ways of enslaving them!
So this recent mad rush for massive gun control and bans since Obama was re-elected, is not about guns, it's about control! You can't controlled educated and armed people!
Side note: The government has even been buying up so much ammunition – billions of rounds - that it would be enough to wage war for 24 years against the American people, here in the United States. Why? It may not be because they expect to wage such a war, but it could very well be part of the disarming process. They have caused such shortages that it could in-effect disarm us without confiscating our guns! Now that we're aware of this, perhaps patriotic ammunition manufacturers could stop allocating ammunition to the government first, and allocate it first to the American people!
The government doesn't need billions of rounds of ammunition, after all!
The Right to Keep And Bear Arms is a human right, that of the People, not of governments!
The push is on, people. Since the last election, the wolf is emerging from the sheep's clothing and global domination is finally within their grasp!
Few people have any understanding anymore, of the most fundamental principles of freedom, independence and prosperity, and many of them don't even have the functional literacy level to learn about them on their own.
Like the author of “The Planetary Bill of Rights Project” has been saying, the world now stands at the brink of entering a dark age of global tyranny, from which humanity may never again emerge.
So it's crucial that a massive educational effort be begun now, in an attempt to bring the world back from the brink. Is it too late? We can hope not. But we don't have time to waste.
The people who have been laid waste to, by the government school systems, need to start improving their literacy on their own. They need to pick up dictionaries and start going through words and meanings. They need to read more, and try to write more, and learn the grammar that the government school systems failed to teach them.
All people need to know and understand that ignorance is not bliss - ignorance is slavery and death!
If you want to be free and independent, you must be two things: Educated and armed!
It's not about “gun control” at all, it's about controlling you and your life!
And the fundamental principles of freedom must be learned and understood by massive numbers of people across the world, if this brink of darkness and impending human slavery is to be avoided.
I happen to know the author of “The Planetary Bill of Rights Project” and truly believe that the education on those most fundamental principles of liberty, independence and prosperity lie within that book. She's convinced of the importance and urgency of getting this education out to as many people across the world as possible, and we're discussing a plan to expedite that now.
You should know that we're standing now, at the brink of an abyss, and if you've felt helpless and yet intuitively understood the danger, and that something must be done, but you didn't understand what, I hope this helps to explain it. Yes, something must be done, and it must begin right away. The future of humanity itself is at stake!
Get active and stay tuned!
