It might sound crazy, but the murdering is a “genetic” trait of socialism – beginning with the spiritual murdering of all dissenting from the commanding spirituality of one designated group, and ending, if the others are resisting, by the physical murdering. All the murdering has been done under the pretense of defending the designated group from the others.
The communist socialism under Stalin, as was in the Soviet Russia, has done it under the slogan of defending the exploited from the exploiters.
Stalin was without doubt one of the most ruthless world leaders of the 20th Century, responsible for millions upon millions of deaths. Estimates of the number of deaths he caused vary wildly – from 3 million to 60 million.
The national socialism under Hitler, as was in the Nazi Germany, has done it under the slogan of defending the superior Arian nation (race) from the other barbaric nations (races).
11 million people were killed during the Holocaust (1.1 million children). 6 million of those victims were Jewish. Other groups targeted by the Nazis were Jehovah’s Witnesses, homosexuals, disabled people, and Roma. Two-thirds of Jewish people living in Europe at the time of World War II were killed by Nazis.
The Chinese socialism under Mao-Tzu-Dun, as was in China, has done it under the slogan of defending the nation from all internal enemies.
Mao’s Great Leap Forward ‘killed 45 million in four years’. At least 45 million people were worked, starved or beaten to death in China over these four years; the worldwide death toll of the Second World War was 55 million.
The modern Cuban and Venezuelan socialism varieties are doing it under the slogan of defending the nation from all external enemies (the USA).
The Communist regime south of Florida has killed an estimated 73,000 people since the dictator Fidel Castro seized power in 1959, according to the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, which was established by an act of Congress in 1993.
The socialism in the European Union are being promoted under the slogan of helping everybody who are unhappy and are looking for a better life (mostly from the Islamic nations).
46 years of terrorist attacks in Europe, visualized:
From 1970 to 2016: 5,215 people died from bombings. 2,463 from assassinations. 2,270 from assaults. 957 from hostage situations. 183 from hijackings. 88 from building attacks.
The American after-2020 socialism, if they (the socialists in the Democratic Party) win, would do it under the slogan of defending those who are deprived of human rights, social justice and economic equality.
Why the socialism-based or near-socialism-based political systems are so murderous?
Because the essence of the socialism is the replacement of the Supreme Power of One God over us the people by the supreme power of the elite-gods over us the people. We do not like it, we resist, and the elite-gods violently suppress us.
It looks like the Jews in the State of Israel know this and do not pay much attention to the preachers of socialism.
David Horovitz of TOI:
The people have spoken. They want to live in Netanyahu’s Israel.
Israelis were not under-informed or unfairly swayed. They knew what they’d get with a 5th term of Netanyahu. The result was the highest vote ever for right & ultra-Orthodox parties.
Why the Israeli majority (including the Jews on the right and ultra-Orthodox Jews) voted for Netanyahu? The reason is simple – the Jews do not like the socialism-inspired governments the Netanyahu’s rivals on the left have promised to establish. The Jewish genetic-guided state of mind reminded the Israel’s Jews that they were made “in the image and likeness of God” as the thinking and creative individuals – not as the crowd obeying a government-god.
If it is so, why so many Jews outside the State of Israel are supporting various socialist governments? These Jews in the Diaspora falsely believe that an atheistic government would be less anti-Semitic and more friendly to all ‘unfortunate” but that is not the case as the history demonstrates.
After reviewing ‘Murdered by Socialism’ many readers will be asking why not ‘Murdered by Capitalism’ as well? Of course, the expansion of Capitalism has been marred by the murdering. However, as an economic/political system Capitalism brings the happier lives to the majority. Contrary to this, Socialism brings the suffering to all but the ruling elite.
Why? – Because Capitalism is rooted in the God’s Torah/Bible-guided uplifting morality, while Socialism is rooted in the man-made power-grabbing ideology.
