Democrat Marxist’s Degrading of America

March 27, 2021

Marxist revolutionaries take advantage of degraded and dysfunctional nations in order to replace their governments’ with socialist regimes. Socialist regimes then often morph into more totalitarian forms of communism.

The socialists and/or communists work tirelessly to accelerate this process of social and cultural decline in targeted nations. In doing so they weaken a the populations psychological immunity to their eventual political take-over of power and population control.

That is exactly what is happening to America right now. The damaging democrat party, is most assuredly, damaging America on purpose. Their evil intent is, as they often promised during the Obama Administration, to “Transform America”!

Their astonishing progress toward this goal should be traumatizing all American patriots.

It is essential to “transform” this trauma into highly mobilized national resistance to this deadly social and political disease!

Please see yet another essential perception of America’s Ongoing Marxist Revolution. Then, act accordingly!

American Marxist Revolution! In Sad Cartoons #1

March 25, 2021

The worst is yet to come for America if we do not find a way to jump-start an American Constitutional Republic Counter-Revolution!

The last sad cartoon will be a shock to all my readers who may recall the terrifying French Revolution of 1789. The chain of events leading up to this horrific blood bath resembles those of our own, under the leadership of the radical Marxist revolutionary Democrat Party. The party that seeks to “TRANSFORM AMERICA”!

WAKE-UP DAMN-FOOL AMERICA!

 

 

Silent Majority Patriots: It Is Time To March On Washington!

March 21, 2021

Silent Majority Patriots of both Political Parties: You damned-well better make yourselves heard and accounted for!

The Marxist Biden/Harris Administration is wantonly focused upon destroying America’s Constitutional Republic. It is doing so by inflaming a clear and obvious ongoing American Socialist/Communist Revolution.

This in pursuit of power and political control in perpetuity.

America!  It is do or die. You must march on Washington; to the Whitehouse, too the Supreme Court and anywhere else that you can persuasively scream and nonviolently agitate for the nullification of the traitorous Biden Administration.

America in now facing an existential crisis of overwhelming proportions. The Biden Administration is doing everything in its power to destroy America.

Please, Please, Please, see Judge Jeanine’s impassioned indictment of our corrupted politicians (in both parties) who are, through their actions and inactions, fanning the flames of America’s Great Undoing at the border and throughout our great civilization!

Patriotic citizens must now take take peaceful but raucous action! It is now, or very possibly never.

The Ongoing American Marxist Revolution: H.R. 1 “For The People Act”!

March 20, 2021

I know that the following is a lot of reading and it is time-consuming. But, we also remember that hundreds of thousands of our citizens have died to protect our precious and unique, in all the world, American Constitutional Republic. It is essential that all citizens realize what the H.R. 1 bill, if it passes the Senate, will do to destroy America.

The Ongoing American Marxist Revolution perpetrated against us by the radicalized Democrat Party has devised the perfect plan to “TRANSFORM” America. This is the one that they have promised since the election of their President Obama. This democrat administration began the process of inflaming citizen conflicts based upon identity politics (I.e., race, religion, value systems, and LGBTQ issues, etc.). They also opened our borders to a flood of unvetted illegal invaders, dismantled our military,  and circumvented our Constitution limitations on the growth and power of our Federal Government. 

The American Marxist Revolution has long simmered in our political system.  But Obama kicked it into high gear. Our propagandistic public schools, universities, news and entertainment media, along with judicial and governmental Marxist operatives have finally reached the TRAFORMATIONAL TIPPING POINT that we are at now.

Of course, many smart Americans recoil from what they identify as conspiracy theory paranoia. It is smart and adaptive to carefully do one’s reality-testing before forming important belief systems. This is essential to do to  make adaptive decisions in a constantly changing crazy society and world. 

This is no easy task, but as voting citizens of the greatest nation ever on planet earth, it is our responsibility to bring intellectual rigour to our efforts to save and perpetuate our ways of life. That is, to protect individual freedoms from excessive governmental control while securing the greatest good for the greatest majority of our citizens.

And just as importantly, to do all of this while protecting our aged and variously infirmed citizens from the ravages of poverty and disease.

No other nation on earth has ever done a better job of approaching these goals.

But all of this is now on the verge if destruction. The following is the Marxist Revolutionary Bill to be voted on by the American Senate. This is a Marxist bullet shot into our Founding Father’s American Constitutional Brain. 

If approved, the Unconstitutional changes outlined in this Bill solidifies the death of the American Dream. 

It is our citizens’ duty to understand this bill and to then ACT accordingly.

I have placed the first two short summarizing paragraphs of this document at the end of this article without changing a word. It is a good summary of this document.  

It is imperative all citizens read this entire H.R. 1 summary! Please send this H.R. 1 summary to everyone you know.

The Facts About H.R. 1: The “For the People Act of 2021”

The Issue

H.R. 1 would federalize and micromanage the election process administered by the states, imposing unnecessary, unwise, and unconstitutional mandates on the states and reversing the decentralization of the American election process—which is essential to the protection of our liberty and freedom. It would implement nationwide the worst changes in election rules that occurred during the 2020 election and go even further in eroding and eliminating basic security protocols that states have in place. The bill would interfere with the ability of states and their citizens to determine the qualifications and eligibility of voters, to ensure the accuracy of voter registration rolls, to secure the fairness and integrity of elections, to participate and speak freely in the political process, and to determine the district boundary lines for electing their representatives.

What H.R. 1 Would Do

  • Seize the authority of states to regulate voter registration and the voting process by forcing states to implement early voting, automatic voter registration, same-day registration, online voter registration, and no-fault absentee balloting.
  • Make it easier to commit fraud and promote chaos at the polls through same-day registration, as election officials would have no time to verify the accuracy of voter registration information and the eligibility of an individual to vote and could not anticipate the number of ballots and precinct workers that would be needed at specific polling locations.
  • Hurt voter turnout through 15 days of mandated early voting by diffusing the intensity of get-out-the-vote efforts; it would raise the cost of campaigns. Voters who vote early don’t have the same information as those who vote on Election Day, missing late-breaking developments that could affect their choices.
  • Degrade the accuracy of registration lists by requiring states to automatically register all individuals (as opposed to “citizens”) from state and federal databases, such as state Departments of Motor Vehicles, corrections and welfare offices, and federal agencies such as the Social Security Administration, the Department of Labor, the Federal Bureau of Prisons, and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services of the Department of Health and Human Services. This would register large numbers of ineligible voters, including aliens, and cause multiple or duplicate registrations of the same individuals and put federal agencies in charge of determining a person’s domicile for voting purposes (as well as that individual’s taxing state).
  • Constitute a recipe for massive voter registration fraud by hackers and cyber criminals through online voter registration that is not tied to an existing state record, such as a driver’s license. It would make it a criminal offense for a state official to reject a voter registration application even when it is rejected “under color of law” because the official believes the individual is ineligible to vote. It would also require states to allow 16-year-olds and 17-year-olds to register; when combined with a ban on voter ID and restrictions on the ability to challenge the eligibility of a voter, this would effectively ensure that underage individuals could vote with impunity.
  • Require states to count ballots cast by voters outside of their assigned precincts, overriding the precinct system used by almost all states that allows election officials to monitor votes, staff polling places, provide enough ballots, and prevent election fraud.
  • Mandate no-fault absentee ballots, which are the tool of choice for vote thieves. It would ban witness signature or notarization requirements for absentee ballots; force states to accept absentee ballots received up to 10 days after Election Day as long as they are postmarked by Election Day; and require states to allow vote trafficking (vote harvesting) so that any third parties—including campaign staffers and political consultants—can pick up and deliver absentee ballots.
  • Prevent election officials from checking the eligibility and qualifications of voters and removing ineligible voters. This includes restrictions on using the U.S. Postal Service’s national change-of-address system to verify the address of registered voters; participating in state programs that compare voter registration lists to detect individuals registered in multiple states; or ever removing registrants due to a failure to vote no matter how much time has elapsed. It also would substantially limit the public release of voter registration information, making it almost impossible for nonpartisan organizations to verify the accuracy of registration rolls, and prohibit states from using undeliverable election mail as a basis for challenging a registrant’s eligibility.
  • Ban state voter ID laws by forcing states to allow individuals to vote without an ID and merely signing a statement in which they claim they are who they say they are.
  • Violate the First Amendment with respect to a vast range of legal activity. Voter intimidation or coercion that prevents someone from registering or voting is already a federal crime under the Voting Rights Act and the National Voter Registration Act. But H.R. 1 would add a provision criminalizing “hindering, interfering, or preventing” anyone from registering or voting, which is so vague and so broad that it could prevent providing any information to election officials about the ineligibility of an individual, such as an applicant not being a U.S. citizen.
  • Expand regulation and government censorship of campaigns and political activity and speech, including online and policy-related speech. H.R. 1 would impose onerous legal and administrative compliance burdens and costs on candidates, citizens, civic groups, unions, corporations, and nonprofit organizations. Many of these provisions violate the First Amendment, protect incumbents, and reduce the accountability of politicians to the public; its onerous disclosure requirements for nonprofit organizations would subject their members and donors to intimidation and harassment—the modern equivalent of the type of disclosure requirements the U.S. Supreme Court in NAACP v. Alabama (1958) held violated associational rights protected by the Fourteenth Amendment.
  • Reduce the number of Federal Election Commission members from six to five, allowing the political party with three commission seats to control the commission and engage in partisan enforcement activities.
  • Prohibit state election officials from participating in federal elections and impose numerous other “ethics” rules that are unconstitutional or unfairly restrict political activity, eliminating the ability of the residents of specific states to make their own decisions about what rules should govern their state government officials.
  • Require states to restore the ability of felons to vote the moment they are out of prison regardless of uncompleted parole, probation, or restitution requirements. Section 2 of the Fourteenth Amendment gives states the constitutional authority to decide when felons who committed crimes against their fellow citizens may vote again. Congress cannot override a constitutional amendment with a statute.
  • Transfer the right to draw congressional districts from state legislatures to “independent” commissions whose members are unaccountable to voters. H.R. 1 would make it a violation of federal law to engage in “partisan” redistricting and mandate the inclusion of alien population, both legal and illegal, in all redistricting. This is an anti-democratic, unconstitutional measure that would take away the ability of the citizens of a state to make their own decisions about redistricting.
  • Authorize the Internal Revenue Service to engage in partisan activity. H.R. 1 would permit the IRS to investigate and consider the political and policy positions of nonprofit organizations before granting tax-exempt status, thus enabling IRS officials to target organizations engaging in First Amendment activity with disfavored views.
  • Limit access to federal courts for anyone challenging H.R. 1. The bill would prohibit the filing of any lawsuits challenging the constitutionality of H.R. 1 anywhere except in the District Court for the District of Columbia and would allow the court to order all plaintiffs and intervenors, regardless of their number (such as all 50 states), “to file joint papers or to be represented by a single attorney at oral argument,” severely limiting the legal representation and due process rights of challengers.
  • Establish a “Commission to Protect Democratic Institutions” that would threaten the independence of the judiciary. H.R. 1 defines “democratic institutions” as those that are “essential to ensuring an independent judiciary, free and fair elections and the rule of law.” The commission would be given the authority to compel judges to testify and justify their legal decisions, threatening their independent judgment and subjecting them to political pressure and harassment.

The Psychology of Socialism #4: The Sick-Democracy-Cycle

March 13, 2021

America’s long-developing Marxist Revolution has occurred with intermittent big gains and shorter temporary reversals, over the course of many generations.

In my Psychology of Socialism #1: Why Is It So Seductive?!, I introduced the psychological principles and elements of human nature that forever have made humans susceptible to is destructive charms.

In my second blog on this topic, The Psychology of Socialism #2: The Problems With Modernization, I addressed numerous changes that developing science and its technology have brought (I.e., increased safety and personal conveniences that have change many of our emotions, thoughts, beliefs and behaviors). Many of these changes are beneficial, but many bring distinct disadvantages to our collective well-being.

I also explained some of the ways that modernization and the Principles of Psychology can work-together to weaken a population’s resistance to the more immediate short-term rewards of socialism at the expense of certain longer-term disasters. Unfortunately, the short term rewards of socialism appeal to both voters and politicians. Without strong cultural teachings designed to “inoculate” citizens against the tyranny of many immediate rewards, many of us can fall prey to some easy rewards with disastrous delayed consequences (I.e., addictive drugs, charge card abuse, compulsive gambling, welfare dependency, or the exchange of advantageous favors and material rewards to citizens by politicians for their own increased power and tenure, etc.).

As modernizing societies continue to develop through generations of citizens, the strength and adaptive qualities of the population’s behaviors tend to diminish. The once more common population levels of tenacity and perseverance to work for long-term goals and rewards tends to decline. Also, the courage to survive hardships, based in part upon the solidifying populations’ faith in historical religions and traditions tend to also be weakened. 

In modernizing societies, people become more dependent upon the advances of knowledge, science, new technical conveniences and governmental assistance. The confluence of these many cultural changes often bring the weakening of morality and ethical behavior within the citizenry. The once sustaining rules, practices and values, historically bolstered by more powerful religious institutions with strong social, cultural and governmental support then begin to decrease in prevalence. All of this is a prelude to predictable social, political and survival problems to come.

The results of these interacting cultural changes in Democracies, or Republics such as ours, could easily transition to a positively accelerating feedback “Sick-Democracy-Cycles”. The Sick-Democracy-Cycle can be comprise of many components. For example, selfish unprincipled voters and politicians can lavish the short-term rewards they control upon each other. In other words, population votes can  be exchanged for politically controlled governmental “largess” (I.e., taxed monies confiscated from the population’s so-called “greedy maker” population and redistributed to the so-called “poor and needy taker” population). These terms become part of the emerging propagandistic language and rational for Socialism. This political Sick-Democracy-Cycle is likely to incrementally move in the direction of a Socialism. Why? Because the population behavior patterns that are punished by the removal of rewards (I.e., increasing taxes) will decrease in future frequency and the population behavior patterns that are rewarded by the receipt of rewards (I.e., various entitlements and welfare allocations) will increase in future frequency. This self-feeding political Sick-Democracy-Cycle is now in play in America’s Ongoing Socialist Revolution. If this self-destructive democracy cycle isn’t stopped, it will lead to the destruction of America, as we have known it for 244 years.

In The Psychology of Socialism 1, 2, and 3, I explained that more immediate , more frequent, and more easily accessible rewards tend to weaken the tenacity, perseverance and creative generativity of citizens. Furthermore, when these rewards become insufficient, or are suddenly cut-off, the psychological principle of Extinction kicks in. The transition from a thick source of easy rewards turns to relative deprivation. This generally leads to lower motivation (i.e., “Give-Upitis”), depression, anxiety and anger; with growing trends of many other kinds of maladaptive behaviors, including suicide, addictions , crime and aggression among citizens.

The Psychological Principle of Extinction Produced Aggression can be a catalyst to all of the of the maladaptive outcomes I have mentioned above, including citizen revolts and revolutions. Unfortunately, revolts and revolutions too often fail to illustrate the old saying that: “Good Things Can Come From Bad Things”. 

The cultural memory of our first American Revolution, occurring between 1775 and 1784, gave birth to our now badly damaged and fragile Constitutional Republic.  

As I explained in The Psychology of Socialism #3: Weakening of Our Behavioral Immunity, socialism is analogous to a disease that attacks societies when their behavioral immune systems become impaired.  I further explained some of the psychological principles that weaken populations’ resistance to the seductive short-term, damaging rewards of socialism while populations’ remain oblivious to the long-term disasters that will soon come to afflict them.

If you were born before the 1960’s you should be able to see the powerful evidence of these damaging outcomes all around you now. If so, your obvious question should be: What are the causes of these damaging changes?!

As I hope you are beginning to understand, many of the answers to this great question are found within the Scientific Field of Psychology.

Please stay tuned. There is more to come on The Psychology of Socialism and America’s present decline.

America’s Marxist Revolution in Cartoons!

March 3, 2021

You will not see what follows in the liberal media.

But, if you will look below, You will see the Ongoing American Marxist Revolution in cartoons!

The People and pundits I observe and listen-to, devotee’s of both political parties, witness the dramatic new governmental changes in America and normally conclude: “they don’t make sense!” They say “the new government doesn’t understand economics or crime”. Or, They don’t seem to understand that the flood of poor uneducated immigrants across our open borders will swamp all of our agencies (education, health, law-enforcement, housing, and take the work opportunities that our own low income unemployed need, etc., etc., etc.

But, yes many do understand.  The just don’t want to admit to the ongoing revolution in America!

The goal is to destroy America’s Constitutional Republic, as well as its social organizations and cultural practices. “They” are doing this in order to achieve their own redesigned America. 

And, what is the new design some may ask?

The blindness of those who ask will be the key to our American Marxist Revolution’s success!

Only “they” can laugh at these “funnies”!

The rest of us could cry.

Biden’s Cognitive Decline: The Key to America’s Ongoing Marxist Revolution

February 27, 2021

As much as I despise what the democrats are doing to further the Marxist Socialist/Communist Revolution in America, I take no pleasure in documenting President Biden’s obvious cognitive decline in 2020. Sadly, his decline will weaken.

Though I try to find a little humor in my own age-related cognitive changes, I will never make-fun-of what is happening to anyone who is suffering more severe problems as a result of age-related dementia. As a practicing psychologist, I frequently work to help  people and their families cope with problems of dementia. Also, I have gone through the pain of deaths due to the outcomes of end stage dementias.

At 79 years of age, I am very aware that my own verbal fluency is not as good as it once was. The same goes for my occasional challenges to quickly access words stored in my long-term memory. Furthermore, I cannot memorize some things as easily as I did, even a decade ago. 

Psychologists know that these things are likely to be examples of normal age-related cognitive decline. People are different and do not experience cognitive decline at the same rates. Some remain remarkably sharp, some decline slowly and some decline more rapidly. Some people suffer rapid cognitive declines starting at different times during their aging process.

There are a number of causes of dementia. Dementia can be defined as: “As a general term for loss of memory, language, problem solving and other thinking abilities that are severe enough to interfere with daily life”

Now, the following is some “reality therapy” for every American who reads this blog.   

Socialist/Communist Vice President Kamala Harris will very likely become America’s new President and Commander in Chief within the next four years. She will then appoint her Vice President who must be confirmed by the majority of both houses. You can bet that she will attempt to partner with someone who shares her political philosophy.

The groundwork for this planned process is well underway. Democrats have started to complain about President Biden’s mental state and have recently begun to mistrust his ability to make decisions about using America’s nuclear arsenals responsibly. The liberal news stations are covering this and “Saturday Night Live” is making jokes at President Biden’s expense. This is just the beginning.

I judge that we are experiencing the beginning of a carefully planned and executed American Marxist Revolution, perpetrated by the Democrat Party, with the assistance of external socialist/communist states and internal “Deep State” operatives.

Please see the following video that substantiates President Biden’s state of cognitive decline in 2020. It will only get worse.

I regret the goof-ball jerk that spew’s snarky comments during this montage of candidate Biden’s many failures to organize and articulate his thoughts during his Presidential Campaign. My problem is that I did not find more clear examples of his cognitive problems all in one package, and I am unable to edit this buffoon out of the sequence.

It is essential that I present this reality of what will become a tragedy for America. Please try to ignore the child-like commentator.   

We should feel sad for Mr. Biden and and fearful for America.

For critics who may dismiss this post as the work of a conspiracy “nut”: Recall that starting in President Obama’s candidacy, and till this day, his goal has been to “Transform America”!

Also, you are not paranoid if they’re really are out to get ya!

America’s Marxist Revolution Second Amendment Reality Check!

February 21, 2021

You may have a firearm, or not! That is your business.

Our Founding Fathers understood citizen’s natural right of self-defense against criminal individuals, groups of criminals and criminal governments. The majority of Americans also understand all of this and will not allow the removal of our Constitutional 2nd Amendment rights.

The Democrat party is seeking to transform America into a Socialist State. To do, among their other active initiatives,  requires that they defund and weaken our communities police departments in any way they can. It also requires that our population be disarmed or greatly hindered from purchasing guns and ammunition. 

Here is a little dose of reality therapy for you. This sort of thing happens in every community and YOU cannot predict when, or where, the bad guys will open fire.

How would YOU like to be caught in this situation without a way to defend yourself. You would be on your own (“When the minutes turn to hours”) before the police arrive. You, again would be on your own if police were shot down.

Some of our cities Marxist Revolutionary Democrats, as they now propose, might have sent you a social worker!

Among the many ongoing Marxist revolutionary tactics are release America’s prisoners, confiscate citizen’s guns, and defund the police, ruin the economy, create anarchy and chaos; and bring the population under the control of an all powerful central government.

This may look like an isolated event.

It sure as hell is not.

Teaching Our Children to Hate Themselves

February 18, 2021

Dear Reader, 

The following, in quotes, is a forward from a patriot friend. 

In America’s New Marxist Revolution, this is just one of the many strategies now  being used to dismantle our Constitutional Republic to transform the USA to a Democratic Socialist Union.

Their success is astonishing. They are incrementally destroying our children and therefore; they are destroying our future!

Wake-Up damn-fool America! Or die.

“White kids are taught to hate their whiteness. Boys are taught to hate their masculinity. Girls to hate their femininity. Children of all races and both sexes are taught to hate their country. We push self-loathing onto our kids and then wonder why they are depressed and suicidal.” —Matt Walsh

The Psychology of Socialism #3: Weakening Our Behavioral “Immunity”

February 14, 2021

 

The Psychology of Socialism #3: Weakening Our Behavioral “Immunity”

In my blog entitled “The Psychology of Socialism #1,  I began with some questions including the following two:

1. “Why does Socialism keep reoccurring in spite of its tendency to morph into an even more tyrannical and murderous  form of government, called Communism?” 

2. “Why does Socialism keep reoccurring in the face of indisputable historical evidence that Socialism/Communism has caused the death of around 94 million citizens (some say over 100 million)?” These deaths were caused by disease, starvation, torture, and execution; in or out of concentration or so-called “reeducation” camps.

I began my second blog within this theme entitled, “The Psychology of Socialism #2 (Modernity) with the following statement:

“I judge that the the social and political infestation of Marxist Socialism in America is analogous to any disease that sickens its host.  When hosts immune system is sufficiently weakened, they become increasingly susceptible to many diseases; some of which are lethal.” The socio-economic “disease” of Socialism is lethal to societies that strive to provide liberty and prosperity to it citizens.

In this second blog, I further explained some of the ways that modernity and the Principles of Psychology work-together to weaken a a population’s resistance to the short-term rewards of socialism, at the expense of longer-term disaster.

You may recall from a post, #2 on this topic, that more immediate, more frequent, and easily accessible rewards tend to weaken the tenacity, perseverance and creative generativity of citizens. Furthermore, when these rewards suddenly are cut-off, or become insufficient, the psychological principle of “extinction” kicks in. The transition from a thick and easy source of rewards frequently leads to growing trends of emotional behavior and aggression among citizens.

Therefore, normal psychological principles within Socialism are transformed into an increasingly pathogenic social and economic system leading to in a pandemic of loss of freedom and prosperity for citizens; as well as increasing hostility and aggression among citizens and escalating tyrannical counter-control measures by the  governmental ruling class.

Understand that socialist and communist activists have long used this predictable chain of psychological events, and they work to activate it in order to over-throw existing governments. 

The following appears to be some of the main behavioral components of this sick social-psychological feed-back system of cultural decline and collapse.  These are the destructive psychological mechanisms hidden within the many failed iterations of socialism; including the so-called Democratic Socialism now being propagandized through our media, and implemented in America. 

  1. As People become more dependent upon modernizing technology (health safeguards, easy relief of physical pain, insurance against calamity, available civil/governmental services, transportation; as well as more immediate, more plentiful, more sizable, and and more frequent rewards in a broad array of categories; they tend to loose behavioral strength, perseverance and independence. The population’s learned expectancy of a less effortful life-style will not fit reality when the government inevitably cannot continue to supply their basic needs.
  2. As people become more emotionally, financially, and physically dependent upon the government (at all levels), the “government animal”, a conglomerate of more privileged people, grows in size and power and exerts incrementally more and more control over the people they govern. 
  3. The increasingly massive and expensive Socialistic government inevitably forages and preys upon its population for increased wealth (tax increases and fees), to gain more control and to support its own growth and development. They “tax the makers and give to the takers”. They “tax those who have and give to the have-nots”. 
  4. They do this by differentially dispensing the material, financial, and welfare rewards they control to their supporting population who will then vote for them and turn against those who vote for those opposing these socialist trends. 
  5. In response to citizens who oppose the growing popularity of the socialist government and its political operatives; it attacks them through hateful propaganda, social defamation, and censorship. It uses the popular media and governmental agencies to assault opposing citizens with legal and financial ruin.
  6. Inevitably, bloating socialist governments become increasingly inefficient at managing the increasing scope of their population control and the socio-culture becomes increasingly maladaptive and unstable. 
  7. This national decline is often viewed by international enemies as an opportunity for military attack. From a political perspective, war can be an advantage to the government and citizens under attack because it is thought to often solidify a population’s support the for their existing government.
  8. In the end, socialism always fails at the cost of great physical and psychological trauma to its citizens and their children.

Much like any behavioral “addiction” (more accurately, a learned habitual dependency), the population’s immediate schedule of rewards eventually turns from happiness to delayed and diminishing rewards, frustration, fear, and pain. All of this, all too often, is associated with population displaced aggression, self-destructive behavior, civil war and increased tyranny by the controlling government.

Socialism is a social-psychological disorder. It tyrannically catalyzes all forms of psychopathology within its population. As it progresses, it leads to social, cultural and economic decline and can easily lead to the collapse of the afflicted society.

The Socialist philosophical “germs” of destruction lay dormant in every society.  They await a decline a societies’ “behavioral immunity”. In some cases there comes an explosive plume of this social psychological pathogen. When the population’s “tipping point” is reached, the “transformational” breakdown occurs.

The afflicted nation then becomes a new host to the ageless socio-economic Ponzi Scheme; simply known as Socialism.   

Please, trace the growth of the many socialist/communist seeds long sewn into the fabric of in America, starting from the early 19 century to our present time. This growth is appears to be nearing exponential proportions as I write. (2/14/21)
