Religion Isn’t a “Problem”… Neoliberal Crapitalism is the Problem

________________________

Some think religion is a “problem”. We disagree. Faith is a matter of personal choice. People of faith want a new society too. The CPUSA stands for unity between believers and non-believers. Join us in the fight against the Trump Agenda.

This isn’t the antitheistic Communist Party of the 20th-century. That party and that era are gone, absolutely and irretrievably. This is a new era… communists have learnt from their errors, for they believe in the dialectic. That is, “thesis confronts antithesis, leading to a new synthesis”. The old party-line of antitheism simply didn’t work and was actually counterproductive. It left out people who could’ve been friends of the Party (even good members of the Party) and the Party stupidly froze them out of society. That is, the Party made needless enemies.

Communists are nothing if not practical and pragmatic. Believers are now welcome as comrades. As Comrade Zyuganov put it:

Christ was the first communist!

Defined that way, I’m proud to be a leftie.

Russell “Texas” Bentley on the One Percent

The “murderous dictator” Fidel Castro Ruz provided free medical, housing, and education to all Cuban citizens, and did that whilst under an economic blockade by the world’s most powerful nation. The “madman” and “terrorist” Muammar Mohammed Abu Minyar Gaddafi used the wealth from Libya’s natural resources to provide free housing, medical care, and education to every Libyan citizen. He subsidised food and fuel prices (gasoline was 0.14 USD (9 Roubles. 1 Renminbi. 10 INR. 0.19 CAD. 0.19 AUD. 0.13 Euro. 0.11 UK Pound) a gallon) and electricity was free for domestic use. He also gave every newlywed couple a wedding present of 50,000 USD (3.21 million Roubles. 347,500 Renminbi. 3.41 million INR. 66,750 CAD. 67,200 AUD. 47,500 Euros. 39,400 UK Pounds), and a 5,000 USD (321,000 Roubles. 34,750 Renminbi. 341,000 INR. 6,675 CAD. 6,720 AUD. 4,750 Euros. 3,940 UK Pounds) birthday present to the parents of every newborn child. Think about that for a minute. In addition, don’t try to tell me that we can’t do it, because it has been. Some might say it only worked on a small-scale, for 11 million in Cuba and 6 million in Libya, but they conveniently forget about the USSR, which with all its imperfections did basically the same for hundreds of millions of people for generations. Therefore, yeah, it’s been done, and what’s been done once, can be done again. Moreover, this time, even better. There’s much that we can do, and much to be done, but the starting point is to understand the real conflict and who the real enemy is. The richest One Percent considers us as their livestock, their inferiors. They intend to exploit those of us who are profitable, and to dispose of the rest. They’re the true enemy of Humanity, and it’s up to us, the vast majority of Humanity, to understand this and to do something about it.

Russell “Texas” Bentley

This is an excerpt… the rest of the post is here, for those who wish to see the whole banana.

Editor:

I heartily recommend ANYTHING by Russell Bentley… he’s put his life on the line for his principles… unlike rightwing mercenary filth like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Rod Dreher, and Bill O’Reilly… all loudmouthed shills for war… all gutless yellow cowards who refused to serve their country (that’s right, none of them served in the forces… all of them earned the “white feather” for that). Bookmark this link and this one, and you’ll stay in touch with one of the heroes of our time.

Yes… the Affluent Effluent are our enemies, and the sooner that we realise that, the better off we all shall be.

17 March 2016. Socialism HONOURS Mothers…

00 Socialism honours our mothers. 170316

______________________________

To hear the likes of John Whiteford and Rod Dreher, one would think that socialism is mindless totalitarianism and grinding poverty. I disagree. Socialism is the fire of Eugene V Debs… socialism is the cool ardour of Norman Thomas… socialism is Jack Layton‘s passion… socialism is the social redistributionism of FDR… socialism is Bernie Sanders‘ vision. Socialism is the real working-man Gus Hall, who was more Joe Six-Pack than Joe Stalin… socialism is the thirst for social justice of Aneurin Bevan and Paul Robeson. Do NOT listen to rightwing lies about socialism. The “conservatives” believe that “winning is the only thing” and that a lion’s share of our resources belong to the rich. You can vote for Bernie or you can vote for Chilly Hilly and Trump the Chump. Yes, there is a real choice between good and evil this year…
