I think this is excellent article that all must read and understand where our country is heading.

The emergence of different ideas/culture of the LEFT with different philosophy of Marxism, Socialism or Communism has come to power.

We have been under a constitutional-republic for 245 years. The results made America as the most powerful country in the world. It is the beacon of hope for all people. Because of the Christian faith that lead this nation. We became great. But now under Joe Biden, his actions are mostly Socialism a prelude to Marxism or communism.

Now, so many are trying to subverge this nation thru various indoctrination of the youths from K12 to colleges and universities. The CRT, WOKE, the wrong history of Project 1619 had been going on but nobody seem to notice. Until it could not longer be hidden. Cause it has now come to reality. Our system of government has been rapidly changed to
Dictatorship or Marxism brought about by the indoctrinated populate. The LEFT had stolen power and now governing like Socialism and then forward to communism. This is the government of Joe Biden.

Tens of millions of illegal aliens are running away from their countries under that tyrannical system of government, coming to the US. But it is ironic that the system of the LEFTIST, they are now doing is the same as those from where the illegal aliens are running away from.

But this battle is just the beginning. We the people must fight and defend our individual rights to where our freedom will always guide us. God bless America and all her people.

Uprooting Communism, Socialism, and Marxism in America

Commentary

The United States has been subverted by people who believe in the failed ideologies of communism, socialism, and Marxism. America’s experiment in self-governance—with State power constrained by well-crafted limits of our constitution—is under direct threat from people who want to “deconstruct” our nation and replace it with a collectivist system of governance.

Many of the 1960s-era adherents to collectivist ideas have infiltrated our government, churches, and a multitude of other institutions, meaning these destructive philosophies have penetrated deep within our country and will be difficult to root out. Many of these radicals are also embedded within the education system, indoctrinating American children.

These people are America’s enemies. But, trying to counter subversive efforts without a full understanding of your enemy is a fool’s errand. I recently interviewed The Epoch Times’ Joshua Philipp, award-winning investigative journalist and an expert on communism, socialism, and Marxism, to determine how America might reorient itself toward mounting an effective defense against the proliferation of these destructive ideas.

One of the least effective ways to discuss communism, socialism, and Marxism is arguing against the economic outcomes and human suffering that inevitably follows adoption of these systems.

“Your average socialist doesn’t care that it doesn’t work economically. Your average socialist doesn’t care that it’s going to uproot the family system and destroy family order,” Philipp said. “They believe that their end goals are so righteous, that killing a few people along the way is worth it for the sake of accomplishing what they hope to create.”

Frequently cited in arguments against collectivist systems are the hundreds of millions of people killed by leaders such as Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler, Vladimir Lenin, Kim Il Sung, and Mao Zedong. But, “real socialists and communists don’t even bat an eye to it,” Philipp said.

While he believes the numbers of people murdered by communists should be part of this conversation, he also thinks that in order to persuade people against these philosophies, opponents of collectivism must address the roots of these ideas.

Religion and Natural Order
Karl Marx stood in strong opposition to religion. Though he had been a Christian in his youth, the timeless question that turned him away (and that he used to recruit people into a socialist mindset and the communal communist order) was essentially: If God is righteous, and if everything is created by God, then why does evil exist?

“If God created all things, and evil exists, then he must have created evil. That was the theory,” Philipp said. “And then they believe, well, if he created evil, then he must not be totally good. And therefore, he must not be the true, perfect image.”

For millennia, this has been a part of theological and philosophical debates, with religious scholars arguing that evil is not God’s creation, but the absence of God. Evil exists because man has free will, so people can choose to do good or evil. But, according to Philipp, what communists and utopians have sought to do is essentially try to eliminate evil from the world, as they see it.

Certain questions naturally follow: How do you prevent people from doing bad things? How do you prevent greed? How do you prevent people from doing things you don’t want them to do?

“You have to destroy the natural order. And, so they looked to create systems that could dictate to a very specific degree all elements of free will, that was one side of it,” he said. “That was always the downfall of utopians.”

Communists believe in the destruction of all previous institutions, including religious institutions. They believe in rebelling against God, whom they see as imperfect. Therefore, communism cannot coexist with the church. Communist ideology suggests that in order to perfect society, “you need to remove God from human morality, you need to remove God from human art, you need to remove God from architecture, and from our family structures, and from the way we shape our lives,” Philipp mentioned.

Dialectical Materialism
One of the pre-existing ideas that was brought into Marxism was that of the “negation of the negation,” which basically means that through the destruction of an existing institution, a more highly evolved system will emerge. For example, the chicken is born through the negation of the egg, the plant is born through the negation of the seed, a higher institution can be born through the negation of an existing institution. This would mean that by destroying institutions, a higher state of human evolution can be induced.

So, they must challenge the church, challenge tradition, challenge belief, create antithesis—the opposite of what is. “Marxism did the same thing under what they call ‘dialectical materialism,’” Philipp said, which is where you intentionally create inversion. You identify important cultural systems of that society and create the antithesis of that.

“So, you promote divorce, you promote feminism, you need to find ways to break up the family,” he said. “You need to look at the ways of doing it, and then develop social movements to argue against whatever the existing institution is.”

“If you want to destroy religion, you need to promote atheism,” he said. “Want to destroy the family, you need to promote feminism, promote divorce, promote the taking away of children by the government.”

The Way Forward
We don’t need to look too closely to see the ways in which communists, socialists, and Marxists have infiltrated the United States and other countries. Communists infiltrated American churches in the early 20th century. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has penetrated American schools. They have seized influence in U.S. companies and within our government.

Notably, their presence is visible in the authoritarian policies born from the pandemic response: the capricious, autocratic mandates; the brutal repression of people marching in the streets demanding the government’s boot off of their necks and a return to normalcy; actions by members of groups such as the United Nations and World Economic Forum who decry a return to normalcy, while pushing a global centralization of power.

For freedom-loving individuals, once you understand the goals of communists, socialists, and Marxists, you cannot cede any ground to them. There’s absolutely no capitulating, no negotiating, no meeting halfway.

“Every time they make a moral argument, and you say, ‘Okay, I want to be reasonable here, I’ll concede half the ground to you,’ society loses half its morals, society loses half its beliefs,” Philipp said. “Every time they do this, and they continue doing it, they force people to acknowledge it. And every time they do this, every time people give ground, they give up half their values.”

All supporters of individual liberty, freedom, and human rights must unite to confront the destructive forces attempting to take over. Americans must use all non-violent means available to deliver an immense repudiation of authoritarian systems of governance.

The battle isn’t unwinnable. There are only a few thousand politicians, bureaucrats, and corporate executives. There are more than 333 million American citizens. Who really holds the power in this country?

If government schools enforce Draconian mandates or teach lessons that indoctrinate your kids with communism, socialism, or Marxism, send your kids to private school or homeschool. If businesses enforce unconstitutional mandates, you stop spending your money there—put them out of business. If airlines enforce authoritarian policies or mandates, then stop flying with them. If your place of employment is caving to authoritarianism, you team up with like-minded employees and say no.

“You do not give an inch, you don’t sacrifice even a single morsel of your system of values, you don’t give in even a drop, you don’t play their games, you don’t talk within the boundaries of their arguments,” Philipp said. “You don’t even engage with them, in terms of giving any ground on anything. If they want to call you names for it, so be it. If they want to attack you, so be it. You do not sacrifice an inch.”

For example, the chicken is born through the negation of the egg, the plant is born through the negation of the seed, a higher institution can be born through the negation of an existing institution. This would mean that by destroying institutions, a higher state of human evolution can be induced.

So, they must challenge the church, challenge tradition, challenge belief, create antithesis—the opposite of what is. “Marxism did the same thing under what they call ‘dialectical materialism,’” Philipp said, which is where you intentionally create inversion. You identify important cultural systems of that society and create the antithesis of that.

“So, you promote divorce, you promote feminism, you need to find ways to break up the family,” he said. “You need to look at the ways of doing it, and then develop social movements to argue against whatever the existing institution is.”

“If you want to destroy religion, you need to promote atheism,” he said. “Want to destroy the family, you need to promote feminism, promote divorce, promote the taking away of children by the government.”

The Way Forward
We don’t need to look too closely to see the ways in which communists, socialists, and Marxists have infiltrated the United States and other countries. Communists infiltrated American churches in the early 20th century. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has penetrated American schools. They have seized influence in U.S. companies and within our government.

Notably, their presence is visible in the authoritarian policies born from the pandemic response: the capricious, autocratic mandates; the brutal repression of people marching in the streets demanding the government’s boot off of their necks and a return to normalcy; actions by members of groups such as the United Nations and World Economic Forum who decry a return to normalcy, while pushing a global centralization of power.

For freedom-loving individuals, once you understand the goals of communists, socialists, and Marxists, you cannot cede any ground to them. There’s absolutely no capitulating, no negotiating, no meeting halfway.

“Every time they make a moral argument, and you say, ‘Okay, I want to be reasonable here, I’ll concede half the ground to you,’ society loses half its morals, society loses half its beliefs,” Philipp said. “Every time they do this, and they continue doing it, they force people to acknowledge it. And every time they do this, every time people give ground, they give up half their values.”

All supporters of individual liberty, freedom, and human rights must unite to confront the destructive forces attempting to take over. Americans must use all non-violent means available to deliver an immense repudiation of authoritarian systems of governance.

The battle isn’t unwinnable. There are only a few thousand politicians, bureaucrats, and corporate executives. There are more than 333 million American citizens. Who really holds the power in this country?

If government schools enforce Draconian mandates or teach lessons that indoctrinate your kids with communism, socialism, or Marxism, send your kids to private school or homeschool. If businesses enforce unconstitutional mandates, you stop spending your money there—put them out of business. If airlines enforce authoritarian policies or mandates, then stop flying with them. If your place of employment is caving to authoritarianism, you team up with like-minded employees and say no.

“You do not give an inch, you don’t sacrifice even a single morsel of your system of values, you don’t give in even a drop, you don’t play their games, you don’t talk within the boundaries of their arguments,” Philipp said. “You don’t even engage with them, in terms of giving any ground on anything. If they want to call you names for it, so be it. If they want to attack you, so be it. You do not sacrifice an inch.”

"Dialectical Materialism" was spawned in the mind of Marx at the Jesuit university in Triers. You will notice from your readings about the history of the Jesuits that they were "conversios." The greatest enemies of all freedom-loving Westerners have been this organization because its goal is to subject all nations to the Vatican. Americans are men and women who desire to resist those organizations that want to enslave us to the Roman Empire of the illuminists.

You deny that Marxism exist thru the CRT, WOKE, and BLM's. You deny that children are indoctrinated to hate America. You deny that children are indoctrinated to hate the Christian faith. Proof: They've dismantled, burned and destroyed many of the Christian churches, artifacts, statues and Cross the symbol of Jesus death for all of us. They destroyed and dismantled the statues of the Founders who've built this country, sacrificed and died so that their children can have a country of freedom and liberty.

You are therefore a Marxist that try to uproot the foundation of this country which is freedom to worship and to achieve the highest potentials of the gifts that God gave every human being. That is " Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness." God gave that to us.

You have the very wrong interpretations of how and where Jesus wants to lead us. That is the object of the Vatican, thru Saint Peter. Mathew 16:17-18-19
17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah! For this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by My Father in heaven. 18And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."
That is the purpose of the Vatican called Saint Peter's Basilica.

There are the Dominicans who truly sacrificed and follow the tenets of Christ Church, the Catholic Church.

Why you hate the Vatican now lead by Pope Francis who was installed there by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and George Soros.

You just hate the Christian faith, and especially the Catholic Church. I am aware that Marxism or Communism hate religion particularly the Christian faith.

Your they, they, they doesn't really call out anyone. I'll deny that children here in the United States are indoctrinated to hate this country and anyone who thinks, knows Republicans are a far greater danger to Democracy. You would tell a gay man he has no right to feel the way he does and deny him that freedom and pursue of happiness. Your insistence that everyone believe your ideals is much more unAmerican as anything Democrats do and your quick judgement of anyone who doesn't agree with you is proof of that. "Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness"
is something guaranteed to all American Citizens, not just you and people who think like you.

I have been awake watching our country like an eagle being destroyed by the Marxist democrats thru various organizations, lead by Clinton, Barack Obama, etc., powered by some members of the FBI's and all those who created the CRT's, WOKE, Project 1619.

I had been awake when Marxist BLM's have been burning cities all over our country, dismantling Christian churches, and symbols, dismantling statues of the Founders, the law enforcement being killed, injured, and defunded.

From 2016 to 2020, the LEFTIST (Marxist) have been trying to oust the duly elected president of the United States president Donald J. Trump. Historians rated him as one of the best presidents of the United States. His achievements were massive. His tenure has been rattled by several conspiracy hoaxes of Hillary and illegal impeachments by Pelosi, the ObamaGate, DeepState, of Barack, all of them have been found fabricated hoaxes, to take over power from president Donald Trump who'd dedicated his service to preserving our freedom, our faith, under the Constitutional republic.

Currently Hillary's fabricated hoax thru her lawyer Sussmann, has now been indicted for his massive fabrication of the Russia hoax now found illegally created and fabricated to rid of their opponent Trump. All the participants, the master-mind is Hillary Clinton who paid this lawyer Sussmann to fabricate hoaxes against Trump.

Trump will clean the SWAMP, and the communist democrats are the SWAMP. So, the fabricated ways to remove him. Now he was all found innocent of all the charges they brought up on him. He has been an innocent victim of hoaxes. He became another victim, this time the final and worst attack on him and all the people who supported him. The communist-DEMS stole the 2020 presidential election from Trump and proven by massive evidences and under oath witnesses. The LEFT moved tens of millions of votes to Biden. The massive violations of the constitutional rights of the 75 million Americans, identified voted for Trump. Although thru various evidence proven that about 16 million votes were stolen from Trump. The rights of the people whose votes were stolen have been violated as well.

How is you Biden doing now? Everything he touched have turned to dust. This country is now invaded by tens of millions of illegal aliens from 160 countries. The recent one were 15,000 from Haiti.

This country has been massively destroyed by Biden, who has limited our freedom, wanted to turn this country to Marxism or communism, now following China's CCP Chairman Xi.

As you point fingers "they, they, they," so shall I point fingers "you, you, you". I have worked in the LGBTQ community since 2014, am a Republican with gay family members and YOU,have bought into the demoncrat rhetoric that Republicans would deny guys their rights which is straight up bullshit. If you lump all Republicans or conservatives in the same box then why shouldn't I lump all Democrats into the same box.

Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness is guaranteed to all people in the USA, given by God. God gave us life, Liberty and freedom as well, but freedom must be fought by the people seeking it. The Founders did fight that freedom for us, and the tens of millions of our fellow Americans who fought and died protecting it.

Because there are powers around us with different ideology embedded in Communism and Marxism. These was the power sought by Linen during the Bolshevik revolution in Nov. 1917. There were confiscation of private properties, which now Joe Biden is going to do confiscate the assets of people he called rich. Take away their bank accounts. anybody who owns deposit amount of $600 or more ,must be questioned and eventually confiscated.

A gross violation of the constitutional rights of the citizen. Joe Biden does not recognize the constitution, but his Marxist ideology of control and obedience by the masses must prevail.

How did Biden learn about this since he is so dumb? I think he has advisors dictating what he must do. I think proven by trails of his constitutional violations, Barack Obama came to play along with Bernie Sanders, and the huge mouthed AOC's "tax the rich."

In moral sense, these people are thieves. Thieving all the assets earned and worked hard by the citizens who exercised their freedom, and that pursuit of Happiness. Now the Marxist government can take away what you've earned and pursued to achieve all your lives.

Other Marxist actions of Biden is destroying the Suburban homes. Biden will change the zoning of the Suburbs by building multi-plex units to be homes of illegal aliens, the drug dealers, addicts, terrorists, rapists, and convicts. The purpose of this is following the demands of the CRT to make everybody with equity, equality, and obedience to the leader.

When this happens values of those million dollar homes will go down to nothing, that nobody will buy due to the location and security their security/safety along with their children. These homeowners will move out. Property taxes as well could go down. Cause taxes are valued based on the market value of the property. Cities and Counties will suffer, but Biden does not care about that. He'll compensate that with the funds confiscated from the rich peoples' bank accounts.

They, they, they? They is a pronoun , taking the place of a noun. It is plural. Those are the Marxist ideologist, now emerging in power thru various means. The creators of the CRT, WOKE, and Project 1619 . The current government of Joe Biden is now under the indoctrination of the Marxist or Communist ideology.
People are lied to deception pretending that they are still under our constitutional-republic. But this is slowly being eradicated to Marxism.
1. Via his very high tax policies.
2. His massive Social spending to mislead the people.
3. The rapid changes of our economy to inflation where all people are equally affected.
4. The confiscation of the wealth of the citizens via bank confiscations to fund his massive spending to building large masses of people to follow him.
5. The implementation of the CRT, WOKE, and project 1619.
6. The invites of million of illegal aliens to populate so majority follow his ideology of Marxism.

I certainly don't see any republicans fight for their right to love or marry whoever they want. As far as lumping all Democrats together feel free, republicans on this site already do so what's one more. Haven't you heard we're all Marxist, communists who hate America.
