Socialism only works within one's immediate family and is proportional to the degree that love exists.





































10 Movies “LIberal” Sympathizers Should See


Dr. Zhivago

The "Occupy" activists in Moscow in 1905 thought they were demanding greater economic equality. What they got was horror for everyone. Even the most zealous "Occupy" activist in the movie — who spent years killing former aristocrats and their sympathizers — was eliminated himself by party bosses.

Original Intent

A very clear, compelling, look at the Cultural Marxist attack on the original intent of the Founders of this great republic. This documentary is constantly captivating and often reveals significant facts and truths that few people understand.

Waiting For Superman

This documentary exposes the graft, and lack of concern for the good of children, in the public schools and especially in the teacher's unions. The supposed attempt to provide "equal" education for all only lowers quality, increases cost and invites shocking graft.

Mao's Last Dancer

This is the story of a ballet dancer brought up under China's Communist dictators and then exposed to the freedoms that exist in America. Guess which he preferred.

Agenda

The most powerful exposé of the communist, socialist, progressive attempt to take over America produced so far showing how the different communist, socialist, progressive organizations have implemented their agenda to dismantle American patriotism, morality and spirituality.

The Lost City

The story of an "Occupy" Cuba activist who leans too late that he's simply been used as foolish pawn by Communist thugs out to destroy his own family.

Atlas Shrugged

This tells how a female railroad magnate has to fight government and union thuggery to defend her liberty, and that of others.

The Pixar Story

Capitalism at it's most impressive. Big risks, hard work, great movies for families to enjoy, profits well-earned, enjoyable jobs provided - wow! That's great Capitalism.

The Pursuit of HappyNess ... Will Smith

This is the right way to occupy Wall Street -- with determined study, hard work, humble service, and earned success. Here's a case of a poor person finding the right way to personal "happiness" and financial success.

It's A Wonderful Life

This wonderful Christmas season favorite contracts greedy Capitalism with Christian, servanthood Capitalism. Guess which looks better. True Christians engaged is servanthood style Capitalism help provide a wonderful life for all.

A hammer can be used to help build a house or to kill someone. Capitalism in Russia is not what it is in America. In America many Capitalists are Christians who engage in business with integrity, honor, servanthood and even generosity. Without a biblical approach to business — like George Bailey had in IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE — you will see abuses. The answer is not Socialism, Communism or bigger government. It's revival. We need more businessmen intent on abiding by Christian principles.

Best Anti-Communist, Anti-Socialist Movies of All Time

REPENTANCE (subtitled) ... Soviet Union - 1987

REPENTANCE is the one movie credited with helping to overthrow Communism. This magnificent movie exposes the evils of communism, statism and totalitarianism while lifting up the suffering and the triumphant, eternal Church of Christ Jesus.

ELENI (some subtitles) ... 1986

ELENI is the greatest movie about a mother's love in the face of adversity. It is the true story of a mother who was murdered by the communists during the Greek Civil War. Eleni proclaims, "Christ is risen" on Easter, prays to God and concludes before her execution with the touching statement that "It is such a joy to be a mother that I thank God for letting me know it."

STRIKE (subtitles) ... 2007

STRIKE, a German/Polish production, is one of the most compelling, captivating, pro individual, pro faith, Anti-Communist movies ever made. It tells the story of how the Communist persecution of one hard-working woman eventually led to the downfall of Communism in Poland. MOVIEGUIDE® highly commends STRIKE for anyone age 13 and up.

THE LOST CITY ... 2005

This excellent movie follows the heartbreaking tale of one family, three brothers and a beautiful woman against the backdrop of the overthrow of Cuban dictator Batista in 1958 and 1959, and the establishment of Fidel Castro's brutal, oppressive Communist dictatorship. THE LOST CITY is a magnificent historical drama that tells the truth about Castro's ruthless, Communist regime and that powerfully celebrates family, liberty, democracy, Christian faith, national heritage, and other positive virtues.

THE LIVES OF OTHERS (subtitled) ... 2007

THE LIVES OF OTHERS is a German movie about a secret policeman in Communist East Germany in the 1980s who secretly tries to help a playwright and his live-in actress girlfriend who are being investigated. THE LIVES OF OTHERS is an excellent movie that shows how evil Communism and socialism are, but it contains some strong sexual content and explicit nudity requiring extreme caution.

NINE DAYS THAT CHANGED THE WORLD ... 2010

NINE DAYS THAT CHANGED THE WORLD is a very timely, must-see, well-made, emotional, inspiring documentary about Pope John Paul II's historic, world-changing nine-day pilgrimage to Poland in June 1979. Everyone should see this documentary.

HANOI HILTON ... 1987

HANOI HILTON is the story of the American Prisoners of War (POWs) captured and tortured by the Communist Vietcong from the 1960s through the mid-1970s. Brilliantly acted, with a highly polished script, HANOI HILTON is a moving, insightful film that will be too strong for some viewers because of its realism since it does realistically portray the war and so there is some male nudity.

Thomas Babington Macaulay, 1st Baron Macaulay PC (25 October 1800 – 28 December 1859) was a British poet, historian and Whig politician. He wrote extensively as an essayist and reviewer, and on British history. He also held political office as Secretary at War between 1839 and 1841 and Paymaster-General between 1846 and 1848.

Quotations standing firm for 150+ years!

"The measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he never would be found out."

"The maxim, that governments ought to train the people in the way in which they should go, sounds well. But is there any reason for believing that a government is more likely to lead the people in the right way than the people to fall into the right way of themselves?"

"Our rulers will best promote the improvement of the nation by strictly confining themselves to their own legitimate duties, by leaving capital to find its most lucrative course, commodities their fair price, industry and intelligence their natural reward, idleness and folly their natural punishment, by maintaining peace, by defending property, by diminishing the price of law, and by observing strict economy in every department of the state. Let the Government do this: the People will assuredly do the rest."

Ayn Rand on Racism

Racism is the lowest, most crudely primitive form of collectivism. It is the notion of ascribing moral, social or political significance to a man’s genetic lineage—the notion that a man’s intellectual and characterological traits are produced and transmitted by his internal body chemistry. Which means, in practice, that a man is to be judged, not by his own character and actions, but by the characters and actions of a collective of ancestors.

Racism claims that the content of a man’s mind (not his cognitive apparatus, but its content) is inherited; that a man’s convictions, values and character are determined before he is born, by physical factors beyond his control. This is the caveman’s version of the doctrine of innate ideas—or of inherited knowledge—which has been thoroughly refuted by philosophy and science. Racism is a doctrine of, by and for brutes. It is a barnyard or stock-farm version of collectivism, appropriate to a mentality that differentiates between various breeds of animals, but not between animals and men.

Like every form of determinism, racism invalidates the specific attribute which distinguishes man from all other living species: his rational faculty. Racism negates two aspects of man’s life: reason and choice, or mind and morality, replacing them with chemical predestination.

50 FORBIDDEN WORDS IN SCHOOL GET 2ND LOOK
Birthdays, evolution, politics among terms thought too offensive

By Joe Kovacs ... April 4, 2012

The ban on birthdays is over in the Big Apple.

The New York City Department of Education has decided against going forward with its plan to ban the use of 50 words on standardized school tests, thinking the terms might be offensive to some people.

Among the words on the forbidden list were birthdays, celebrities, cigarettes, crime, divorce, evolution, politics, sex and religion

The recommendation was originally made last week, and New York Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott told WCBS-TV his department was simply giving guidance to the test developers.

“So we’re not an outlier in being politically correct. This is just making sure that test makers are sensitive in the development of their tests,” Walcott said.

Words suggesting wealth were also excluded because they could make kids jealous.

“Poverty” was also on the forbidden list, and Sy Fliegal with the Center for Educational Innovation told WCBS that was ridiculous.

“The Petersons take a vacation for five days in their Mercedes … so what? You think our kids are going to be offended because they don’t have a Mercedes? You think our kids are going to say ‘I’m offended; how could they ask me a question about a Mercedes? I don’t have a Mercedes!’” Fliegal said.

After an uproar from parents over the proposed ban, the DOE backed down, but the department released a statement saying it would “continue to advise companies to be sensitive to student backgrounds” and “avoid unnecessary distractions that could invalidate test scores.”

The words on the original forbidden list include:

Abuse (physical, sexual, emotional, or psychological)

Alcohol (beer and liquor), tobacco, or drugs

Birthday celebrations (and birthdays)

Bodily functions

Cancer (and other diseases)

Catastrophes/disasters (tsunamis and hurricanes)

Celebrities

Children dealing with serious issues

Cigarettes (and other smoking paraphernalia)

Computers in the home (acceptable in a school or library setting)

Crime

Death and disease

Divorce

Evolution

Expensive gifts, vacations, and prizes

Gambling involving money

Halloween

Homelessness

Homes with swimming pools

Hunting

Junk food

In-depth discussions of sports that require prior knowledge

Loss of employment

Nuclear weapons

Occult topics (i.e. fortune-telling)

Parapsychology

Politics

Pornography

Poverty

Rap Music

Religion

Religious holidays and festivals (including but not limited to Christmas, Yom Kippur, and Ramadan)

Rock-and-Roll music

Running away

Sex

Slavery

Terrorism

Television and video games (excessive use)

Traumatic material (including material that may be particularly upsetting such as animal shelters)

Vermin (rats and roaches)

Violence

War and bloodshed

Weapons (guns, knives, etc.)

Witchcraft, sorcery, etc.




The main difference between capitalism (Conservatism) and socialism (Liberalism) is:

CAPITALISM WORKS!

And just WHY does Capitalism work?
Consider the former USSR that went 'belly-up' largely because their communist version of Socialism was a bloated bureaucracy that couldn't keep up ... kinda like a short 300 pound runner in a marathon.
Think of it this way: CAPITALISTS wait in line to pay for groceries. SOCIALISTS wait in line to see if there are ANY groceries. That was the result of advanced socialism (communism) in the former USSR. Literally!
The 'Spreading the wealth' concept will ultimately dishearten the productive members of society, robbing them of their incentive to work.

It reminds me of a George Bernard Shaw quote. "A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul."

The telling point is this: Socialists are group/herd animals. They seek security and the supposed protection afforded by similar others. They are usually found in academia where they seek tenured or other protected positions, trade unions that protect the lazy and inefficient amongst them and many levels of government employment. Funding for their lives is usually at taxpayer or coerced expense. How can the 'strike' weapon strategy used by unions NOT be considered extortion.
Now the liberal socialist mentality does have a propensity for immense caring ... somewhat like examining slowly diminishing concentric circles attempting to find the smallest piece that does not fit their utopian concept of how they view ideal living. And, if they find something out of place, they are quick to 'tag along' by organizing agitators to take up the mission to 'change' things. Of course many of them find a way to make a living from that activity. This usually involves seeking funds from the wealthy who all too often feel guilt and are happy to pay for their piece of mind.
On the other hand, Capitalists are individualists and risk takers ... the eagles. They generally have infinite confidence in their ability to strive and succeed. A great example are straight commission salespeople from whom one will often hear, "The world won't be right until EVERYONE is on straight commission." Meaning, of course, that  every physically and mentally capable person should be paid based on their individual performance and contributions. A successful capitalist can become wealthy in his/her own right. The American Dream they call it!
Of course, Capitalists are not un-feeling people for it is their help that is sought by those with a 'cause'. Go figure!
Consider this definition from Wikipedia: "Deprogramming refers to actions that attempt to force a person to abandon allegiance to a religious, political, economic, or social group. Methods and practices typically involve violent kidnapping and coercion. Similar actions, when done without force, are called "exit counseling"."
Since this site is about the study of change, i. e., history, it is not within our purview to kidnap or coerce. It IS, however, our desire to communicate the differences that divide us in hopes of turning on the lights of common sense intellect that so few choose to employ. We seek to enlighten in hopes of encouraging all to understand the impact of knee-jerk reaction to the events that affect our lives fully understanding that trying to reason with a socialist leads to this:

For those who slept through World History 101...... here is a condensed version. (Wink!)

Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.

The two most important events in all of history were:
1. The invention of beer, and
2. The invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer, and the beer to the man.

These facts formed the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:
1. Liberals
2. Conservatives.

Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed.

Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to BBQ at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement.

Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly BBQ's and doing the sewing, fetching, and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement.

Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. The rest became known as girlie-men.

Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy and group hugs, the evolution of the Hollywood actor, and the concept of Democratic voting to decide how to divide all the meat and beer that conservatives provided.

Over the years, Conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass.

Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare. Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of liberal women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywood and group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat.

Conservatives drink domestic beer. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big-game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, corporate executives, athletes, Marines, and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living.

Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing.

Here ends today's lesson in world history.......
It should be noted that a liberal may have a momentary urge to angrily respond to the above before forwarding it.

A conservative will simply laugh and be so convinced of the absolute truth of this history that it will be forwarded immediately to other true believers, and to more liberals...just to **** them off.
