Chavez’s Communism Vs. Bush’s Fascism

CNN is focusing on the actions of Hugo Chavez asking if he is paving the way towards communism. You communism; it’s one of those things that we are taught is bad yet we are never taught what it really is and why it is bad. You know…like liberalism.

Well CNN is framing the argument this way; they are saying that Chavez is like a modern day Robin Hood, taking land from the rich and providing land for the poor. Well let me ask Wolf Blitzer and company this…why didn’t you to a piece on the new eminent domain laws that permit rich people to take land away from poorer people and why didn’t you ask if that was paving the way towards fascism? Why didn’t you do an in depth report on capitalism and the wonderful things it has done for the people of the world. Oh, maybe it is because the overwhelming majority of people around the world have been victimized or expoited by capitalism while only about 5% of the population really truly benefits from it.

Capitalism is like the game of Monopoly; wealth consolidates until everyone looses except for the one who ends up with everything! If that’s the alternative to communism…count me in. Don’t get me wrong, I think capitalism is a good thing. Regulated capitalism is a good thing that is; unregulated capitalism is fascism and that’s what George W. Bush means by freedom, free trade and open markets. It means freedom from regulation for people with money to use that money to take your money away! Well Wolf & CNN; when is that report going to air? Think about it!

    The only thing that irritates me more than the way leftists are constantly demonized are the utterly contemptible everyday idiots who buy into it–the ones Jesse spoke of in his blog entry from March 26.

  2. [...] the US establishment media: why is Cuba my enemy? Sure, I have heard the dreaded “C” word, “communist”, but like the word itself nobody in the media has ever told me why communism is bad, why a [...]

    All you have to do is read Das Kapital by Karl Marx with an open mind to understand how dangerous and insane Communism is. Once you realize that you have to give up your individualism and freedom for the greater good through the dictatorship of the proletariat , you see through it’s utter nonsense.

    rayi34 - Again I ask…how does their way of life threaten ME??? What does that book have to do with their system of government? Why don’t you point out that loss of freedom is taking place right here right now in the US!!!

    Jesse: I honestly cannot answer that question. Afterall, we do trade with China. Communism on the one hand, cannot be taken too seriously, since it is an impossible goal. It only gives goverments complete control which is what we in the USA seem to agree on that we do not like. It just scares me when people are willing to give up their freedom and individuality for some abstract notion of a greater good. It is also in this respect that Religion, Communism, as well as Governments are simliar. If your looking for something perfect, it is not in the USA for sure. We can never end the struggle to maintain our freedom. But it’s just a matter of whose side you are on?
