Submitted by Digger Cartwright: First, I think it’s appropriate for this article to make the distinction between communism, socialism, and social democracy. Second, it’s necessary to define subversive to understand how this relates to the topic at hand. All definitions come from http://www.wikipedia.com.
Communism is a revolutionary socialist movement to create a classless, moneyless, and stateless social order structured upon common ownership of the means of production, as well as a social, political and economic ideology that aims at the establishment of this social order. According to communist theory, the only way to abolish capitalist inequalities is to have the proletariat (working class), who collectively constitute the main producer of wealth in society, and who are perpetually exploited and marginalised by the bourgeoisie (wealthy class), to overthrow the capitalist system in a wide-ranging social revolution.
Socialism is an economic system characterised by social ownership and/or control of the means of production and cooperative management of the economy, and a political philosophy advocating such a system.
Subversion refers to an attempt to transform the established social order and its structures of power, authority, and hierarchy. The term has taken over from ‘sedition’ as the name for illicit rebellion, though the connotations of the two words are rather different, sedition suggesting overt attacks on institutions, subversion something much more surreptitious, such as eroding the basis of belief in the status quo or setting people against each other.
It is my contention that there is a vast subversive movement in America right now with these subversives attempting to erode our values and corrupt our system of government. These subversives are attempting to pit Americans against Americans with the goal of causing our political and economic systems to collapse. Here are some signs that may suggest someone is a subversive. If you know someone who exhibits these characteristics, be aware and be advised that they may be a subversive working against America. Contact your local law enforcement officials at once if you believe someone you know is a subversive.
•You support Obamacare—Universal healthcare is a crown jewel in social democracy, socialism and communism. Obamacare is a vast government takeover of our healthcare system and takes away the decision making from you and your doctor and puts it in the hands of a few bureaucrats. These bureaucrats makes the rules on who gets what treatment and who lives and dies and who is worth saving and who isn’t. More importantly, the individual mandate allows the federal government to force you to purchase something. If this law is allowed to stand, where does the government’s ability to force you as an individual to buy a good or service or to do something end? If you’re an able bodied individual and you don’t have health insurance, here’s a novel concept—get a job where they offer insurance as a benefit or else get a job and pay for it yourself. If you’re an able bodied individual capable of working, it shouldn’t be my responsibility or your neighbor’s responsibility to pay for your healthcare. Someone has to pay for it; it isn’t free contrary to popular belief. If you believe Obamacare is a good policy, you’re probably a subversive. After all, universal healthcare goes against everything that we as a nation or any capitalist nation stand for.
•You support Occupy Wall Street—If you are one of the mindless, lazy, ignorant individuals who supports the Occupy movement, you really have no clue how the world works. Capitalism created your iPhone and iPod and iPad. Capitalism is what created your Prius. Capitalism resulted in the creation of the technology you use. Capitalism convinced you that you need a Starbucks or a bottled water. Capitalism resulted in the creation and proliferation of social media—Twitter, Facebook, and the likes. Capitalism provides you with cheap goods from Wal-Mart. Capitalism resulted in the creation of the video games you play in your parents’ basement while you don’t work. You can thank capitalism for the pharmaceutical products you use to treat the sexually transmitted disease you picked up from some skank you picked up in the tent city during your occupy movement. Guess what? These are all businesses. They’re all making money whether you understand that or not. They’re not doing these things out of the goodness of their hearts. They’re doing it to make money. If you want to destroy capitalism, you can kiss all those things good bye. Consider the former USSR. Hell, they couldn’t feed their people, keep the lights on, provide adequate health care or life saving treatments, good cars, and the list goes on. If you want that kind of life, get the hell out of here. If you don’t support capitalism, you obviously favor either socialism or communism or some form of those philosophies. If you support the occupy movement, you evidently are brain dead, you’re not competent to vote, you don’t contribute anything positive to society, you’re lazy, and you’re a loser. Why is it that you don’t have a future? It’s not because of the big bad businesses or capitalism—it’s because you’re lazy and ignorant.
•You want everything to be fair—Here’s a news flash: Life isn’t fair. It never has been fair and it never will be fair. If you want everyone to have the same amount of everything because it’s fair, you’re a communist. If you want something, work for it. You may not be able to have it today, but if you work hard and make sacrifices along the way you can ultimately get what you want. Sadly, the people who decry that it isn’t fair that someone has more than what they do are the same people who are lazy and don’t want to work. Case in point—the entitlement generation of you people who feel they are entitled to everything but don’t want to work for it. How did this happen? Their parents spoiled them and didn’t want them to have to work for anything. They didn’t teach their children about values and the value of dollar and about hard work and rewards for hard work. No, parents failed their children by giving them everything they wanted and not making their children make choices, do without, or make sacrifices. They raised a generation of kids who wanted it to be Christmas every day!
Oh, and how about the people who are being subsidized by the federal government…welfare recipients, college students who are getting loans to go through college and live on, people who have milked the unemployment system without ever even looking for a job. These are people who expect everything to be handed to them, because they don’t want to take a menial job that they feel is beneath them. Why should I work when I can sit at home on my fat ass playing video games and get Uncle Sam to send me a government check? It’s not fair that I don’t have a nice car, so I want the government to give me one or take one from someone else and give to me. I need to make more money sitting here playing video games, so why doesn’t the government tax the people who are working and making money so that I can have some more folding money to go buy cigarettes, alcohol, and video games.
Where has this led? A whole generation and group of people who don’t want to work for anything and want it handed to them and expect the government to hand it to them. Oh, and if you have something more than they do because you actually worked hard and earned a good living and made money and made wise decisions and didn’t waste money on frivolities, they want the government to take from you and give to them. Why? Because that’s what would be fair. If you subscribe to this way of thought, you’re definitely a subversive…whether you realize it or not.
•You oppose voter ID laws—This is the United States of America. You have to be a citizen of this great nation to vote and participate in the election process. Foreigners and illegal aliens don’t have the right to vote here in our elections. It is clear that there was a great deal of fraud in the 2008 election. It is clear that without making voters identify themselves the election process is subject to fraud with illegal aliens or foreigners voting. If you oppose having to show a government issued photo identification or proof of citizenship at the polling location before you vote, you evidently support rigged elections, corruption, and election fraud. Therefore, you are probably a subversive looking to destroy America from within by allowing foreign influences to participate in our election process. If you want to open a bank account, you need a photo identification, social security card, and other forms of ID. If you want to fly on a commercial airline, you need photo identification to get through the TSA screeners. If you want to buy alcohol, you may need to present a photo identification. If you drive a car, you have to have a state issued drivers license. Why then shouldn’t each voter be required to show photo identification/proof of citizenship when they go to vote? Anyone who argues that it will disadvantage people is obviously trying to rig the election. The people who they are trying to protect from being disenfranchised probably drive, have bank accounts, buy alcohol, etc. and had to prove they were citizens to get the photo ID in the first place. NO MORE ILLEGALS VOTING IN OUR ELECTIONS! THEY ARE NOT CITIZENS AND THEY DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE HERE!
•You believe government knows what’s best for you—If you believe that the federal government is smarter than you are and, therefore, the federal government should make decisions for you, not only are you a complete dumbass but you’re also probably a subversive, subscribing to communism. The best thing for you to do would be to move to China or Russia or any one of the many socialist or communist countries where the government does everything for you, thinks for you, and takes care of you from cradle to grave. The federal government makes notoriously bad decisions. Take spending, for example. You or I as individuals can’t spend beyond our means forever. Yet, the politicians in Washington seem to think that the federal government is able to do so. Not very smart is it. Would you want some bureaucrat in Washington deciding how you should be treated if you were seriously ill? I don’t think so.
But, if you believe that the government is smarter than you and, therefore, should make decisions for you, you evidently don’t believe in personal liberty. There’s a pretty clear relationship between the size of the government and personal liberties. As the size of the government increases, personal liberties decrease. Thus, if you believe in a behemoth federal government that is all knowing, you evidently don’t believe in personal liberties. And if you don’t believe in personal liberties, you’re a subversive. Remember, in communist societies, you don’t have personal liberties…so, you don’t really get to vote though they may give you the illusion of a vote, you don’t have freedom of speech so you’ll probably be killed if you speak out against the government, and you basically don’t have many choices. If that’s what you want, there’s plenty of places you can go but don’t force that upon other Americans.
•You support censorship—Places like China, North Korea, Russia, Egypt, Syria and other communist countries censor everything. People there can’t even really get on the internet. How would you like getting on the internet and half the stuff on Google be blacked out? Communists don’t want the free exchange of ideas; it’s a threat to their power and control of the people. Look at places like Egypt and Libya. Social media helped to bring down the dictators. Why do you think China and North Korea don’t want their people seeing news from other places? The 1st Amendment to the United States Constitution ensures our right to free speech. We can speak out against our government without fear of reprisal or of disappearing into the gulag. Our media can report what it wants to report, whether I think it is newsworthy or biased or not. If you believe the federal government should censor what Americans say or what the media reports, you’re a subversive. If you object to the free exchange of ideas, you implicitly support government control of what individuals and the media can and cannot say. Communists want the government to control every aspect of the peoples’ lives.
I guess the one big thing left for me to say is that most of these subversives are too stupid to realize that they are being used and manipulated by someone else or some other organization with their own agenda. It’s sad, but true. These people are merely puppets. The real threat to America are the ones behind all these people—the puppet masters. They’re the ones working to destroy our nation from within. Perhaps Joseph McCarthy was right when he said, “You are seeing today an all out attempt to marshal the forces of the opposition, using not merely the communists, or their fellow travelers-the deluded liberals, the eggheads, and some of my good friends in both the Democratic and Republican Parties who can become heroes over night in the eyes of the left-wing press if they will just join with the jackal pack…”
