One British socialist think-tank says this about Marxism:
Individuals are not the focal point of Marxist theories (Marxists are mainly concerned with understanding social structures); "individuals" are only significant when they act together as a class. That is, when people develop a consciousness of themselves as belonging to a particular social class (a "class in itself") and act upon that awareness to produce social change (a "class for itself").
It is this concept that makes Marxism so dangerous and so false. Destroying individual significance is the Marxist's main objective, and it also contributes to the death of the autonomous soul. When you lump a large group of people into one single narrative it destroys. It also gives manipulative leaders a great tool to make a power grab.
You can see it everywhere in politics, leaders of every party confidently assert they are the only voice of the people - - it is how they get votes and pass rotten laws. When Lenin first came to power in Russia he named his political faction the "Bolsheviks." It means majority party, even though at the time of the first major election in 1917 is accounted for less than 10% of the population. But propaganda works and people are easily swayed.
It is works like a charm in America. Tell me, is every African American oppressed in our country? Is every Hispanic a border jumper? Is every woman demanding abortion on demand? Is every evangelical an idiot? Is every poor person a welfare recipient? Does every Asian like Sushi? Is every person from Green Bay a cheese-head? (That last one might be true?)
Lumping people into a herd is the best way to lead them to the slaughter house!
Look closely, every group is made up of individuals who don't fit the norm. Take any given family with the same mom and dad, is every child the same? I have found that each person, even if they are raised in the same home, eat the same food, have the same skin color, is completely unique. If the oldest brother likes Michigan, the youngest will often root for Michigan State. I have found even in my own family people who love to sing hymns on Sunday, and others who want full blast rock-n-roll worship. My sister likes rice cakes...yuck!
If this is true in families, why do we so easily buy into group rhetoric on a national level? Why do we allow politicians and media to pit poor against rich, black vs white, women vs men, and red-necks vs metro-sexuals? Why do we say disagreement is hate speech? Why do we demand everyone to fall in line when a popular politician speaks or cool celebrity sends out a tweet? What ever happened to fair debate, letting each voice be heard? Using logic and reason instead of rhetoric and the good old fashioned Marxist beat down?
The Bolsheviks have the loudest voice in our country, the minority demands to control the debate and they label any dissenter as a hater. Don't let it happen.
Marx is a liar. Start thinking for yourself, and speak up if you disagree. It is still your individual right - - exercise it.
