What is "Socialism"?
& What is "Communism"?

F. Earle Fox

Some persons do not believe that Obama is a socialist or a communist, and that he is well within the "normal" limits of "being an American".  I believe that he is indeed reasonably called either or both socialist or communist, and that a few dictionary definitions and a modicum of observation of Obama, his past, his present, and his clearly intended future is all one needs to establish the case.  Furthermore, it is apparent to me that his plans are driven by the Globalist folks who have taken on the mantel of worldwide domination in a socialist/communist collectivist manner. 

My dictionary (1967 edition, unabridged Random House Dictionary of the English Language) says that "socialism" is:

1.  a theory of system of social organization which advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production, capital, land, et., in the community as a whole.   ....   3. (in Marxist theory) the stage following capitalism in the transition of a society to communism....

And "communism" is:

1. a theory of system of social organization based on the holding of all property in common, actual ownership being ascribed to the community as a whole or to the state.  2.  a system of social organization in which all economic and social activity is controlled by a totalitarian state dominated by a single and self-perpetuating political party.

Obama's past is replete with a dishonest drive for centralizing government.  His associations with criminal Saul Alinsky, et al, and the hate-mongering church which helped form his conscience all speak in the same direction.  That is verified by his behavior while occupying the Whitehouse (I do not believe him to be a legitimate sitting President).  His take-over of crucial industries, his manipulation of the economy with trillion dollar bailouts, his collusion with the Federal Reserve, his steady promotion of government-controlled health care, abortion, and assisted suicide -- all tell us that he is dedicated to centralizing all aspects of our lives under government control.  He is, by Christian standards, an evil-minded man.  

The definition of 'communism' above allows as one option the "actual ownership being scribed to the community...," i.e., rather than to the state.  It would be almost identical to a pure democracy.  That is possible only in the smallest kinds of communities.  In anything like a city, state, or nation, only the government itself could even attempt to administer that ownership. 

I see no reason to believe that Obama and his "czars" intend anything but the total submission of We, the People, to the dictates of his nationally (and then internationally) centralized state. 

The above definitions of 'socialism' and 'communism' are almost identical, excepting that #3 for 'socialism' allows that socialism can be a stepping stone to full blown communism -- as Marxist doctrine sees the matter.  

And 'communism' #2 is, of course, the only way communism can be sustained.  In a society with an honest freemarket of ideas, the centralizers would quickly be voted (or otherwise escorted) out of office.  So the state must control both Church and education -- both of which, rightly run on a freemarket basis, help guarantee the freedom of the people.  The centralization of government will always attract the evil-minded, those who want to control the rest of us, and who believe either that they really do know how to run all of our lives, or will use that illusion to persuade the people to give them the control for which they lust. 

In the years since the writing of the above dictionary, socialism has been used as a kind of communism-lite, which fits with the notion of "on the way to communism".  But the two come out of the same mind-set, centralization of government, which will always provide the incentive and opportunity for those evil-minded, or just terribly badly educated, people who want to run everyone else's life -- for our own good, of course. 

I see no reason to believe that Obama and his program is anything other than an attempt by his Globalist handlers to take over the country, and that they believe that they have so subverted the Church and education, and that they have sufficient control of commerce and politics, that they can pull it off. 

I believe that they must might do it.  We will see whether enough Americans will see what is happening in time and risk their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor yet once again in the cause of true freedom -- a democratic, constitutional republic under God.   The time has come for plain speaking and for civil disobedience whenever we are confronted by a clearly unGodly government order.  And our reply must be, as always, "Jesus is Lord".
