April 8th is International Roma Day (Romani Day) The European Roam and Sinti were targeted for extermination by the Nazis- at least 200,000 were murdered alongside the Jews……It all so subtle when it starts…… Antonio Gramsci was an Italian philosopher and politician, he was also a founding member of the Communist party in Italy…He had many ideas on how to achieve world communism and this was essentially his path to it…… First, lay the groundwork through the cultivation of ignorance; second use propaganda it is your best friend; agitate the masses; consolidate control over society’s institutions; coerce conformity….sound familiar? Democracy and freedom are always worth fighting for…….. ― Oswald Spengler, Aphorisms
Hungry Ghosts
Socialism to Communism to Fascism With more and more people becoming comfortable with the idea of socialism it is important to realize that socialism is the transition to communism. If we become comfortable with that what is to prevent us from heading on over to fascism. In communism everyone is equal, it is a stateless society, no one is rich and no one is poor, the community holds the products and the major resources. The only real definition of fascism is the one Benito Mussolini gave us; he outlined the three principles of fascism.  1. Everything in the state; the government is supreme and the country is all encompassing and all within it must conform to the ruling body. 2. Nothing outside of the state, the implied goal of any fascist state is to rule the world and have every human submit to the government. 3. Nothing against the state, any questioning of the state will not be tolerated, if you do not see things our way, you are wrong, if you do not agree with the government you can’t be permitted to live and taint the minds of the rest of the good citizens.

“The great virtue of a free market system is that it does not care what color people are; it does not care what their religion is; it only cares whether they can produce something you want to buy. It is the most effective system we have discovered to enable people who hate one another to deal with one another and help one another.” ― Milton Friedman
February 22nd is International World Thinking Day………. But shouldn’t we think every day…….
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” ― Winston S. Churchill
The Weight of the Poor
In the 1966 article “The Weight of the Poor, a strategy to end poverty” written by sociologist professors Richard Cloward and Francis Fox Piven an ideology was introduced suggesting that poverty could be eliminated. This could be accomplished by a push to get more and more people on welfare.  A key component to this plan is to have as many poor people as possible, the more poor people we usher in the more people we have on welfare. Without that element there are less people to be weaponized and used as pawns to give the elite what they want.  This would overload the system to the point where it would implode. Once the system failed then it could be redesigned and would establish a guaranteed basic income for everyone. In other words redistribution of income. You work for it, I don’t but I should get it anyway because the other way isn’t fair. Who decides how much you get? Well, the elite of course. The only thing socialism does is take more power away from the people and give it to the elite. And really the time has come to put an end to that. Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime. Steal a fish from one guy and give it to another--and keep doing that on a daily basis--and you'll make the first guy pissed off, but you'll make the second guy lazy and dependent on you. Then you can tell the second guy that the first guy is greedy for wanting to keep the fish he caught. Then the second guy will cheer for you to steal more fish. Then you can prohibit anyone from fishing without getting permission from you. Then you can expand the racket, stealing fish from more people and buying the loyalty of others. Then you can get the recipients of the stolen fish to act as your hired thugs. Then you can ... well, you know the rest.” ― Larken Rose “A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.” ― Milton Friedman
“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people, not institutions, people hurt faster than institutions. This is cruel but very effective, direct personalized criticism and ridicule works.” Alinsky “Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost come in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” ― Milton Friedman As if we didn’t know what their intentions were from the beginning…..serfdom is not a road we want to take - Hayek
        “Control healthcare and you control the people.” Alinsky
“Secrets, silent, stony sit in the dark palaces of both our hearts: secrets weary of their tyranny: tyrants willing to be dethroned.” ― James Joyce
