The top 5 interconnected mythologies of socialism

These are the top 5 myths the Left uses in peddling their socialistic snake oil. We destroy them in turn.

The national socialist media is now torn between two diametric goals: Trying to keep up at least the appearance of objectivity while fostering the Left’s base ideology. The second goal directly conflicts with the first, therefore they need to be careful in how they sell the fraud of socialism [or one of it’s aliases: collectivism, communism, ‘democratic’ socialism, Fabianism, fascism, Leninism, Utopian socialism, etc].

Meanwhile socialist Venezuela is a constant reminder that their ancient ideas do not work. Thus they have to try to sell these wonderful new ancient ideas while trying to explain away their non-functional reality. If they could just convince people that socialist Venezuela really isn’t socialist, they won’t have to explain why those people are starving in the dark, having to eat garbage.

The NSM is openly advocating socialism

New York magazine has gone all in with a cover that asks ‘When Did Everyone Become a Socialist?’ In the case of the Washington Post, they chose to run through some ‘myths’ that were ostensibly of a ‘fact checking nature’. This is their way of taking on the imprimatur of object truth teller while selling the fraud of socialism, attempting to wring a last bit of advocacy out of what remains of their tattered objectivity. Thus inspired by their example we will address the critical myths rather than issues no one talks about such as ‘Socialism is a single coherent ideology’.

Myth number 1: Failed Socialist regimes of the past or present ‘weren’t really socialist’

This is one of the most encountered falsehoods, it stretches back to several decades to the nations of pre-W.W.II Europe in connection to a regime run by a National Socialist Worker’s Party. The myth is that this Socialist Worker’s Party wasn’t really a Socialist Worker’s Party has filled volumes, but keep in mind this was a regime steeped in collectivism to the point that they had the slogan: Gemeinnutz Vor Eigennutz on their coinage, translated as Common good before Individual good.

Leftists love to play games with words, whether it’s Global Cooling, Global Warming, Climate Change, Climate crisis or the number of euphemisms or aliases for socialism. They change the terms and change the debate: ‘that was communism, this is socialism’ or ‘that was socialism, this is democratic socialism’. It’s all the same fraudulent dead-end, but Leftists cast it like a product with a terrible reputation in new packaging, that is somehow different.

That Leftist denial of reality served as the prototype to a tactic that is still being exploited. The usual pattern is that a new socialist regime will be lauded such as that for the new minted USSR or the more recent example of the socialist Venezuela. Later on when it all implodes the typical ad hoc rescue is that some aspect somehow made it non-socialist after the fact.

Myth number 2: Those who oppose Socialism [or one of its aliases] don’t know anything about the subject

This is the usual go-to retort for most arguments from the Left, a subtle variation of the typical ad hominem attack. Aside from the Leftist commandment that one shall not generalise, except when they want do it such as accusing everyone on the right of being racist. It is at best highly questionable to make a statement based on information that it is unavailable on a limited basis. At worst, it is an outright lie. It is beyond that to make a blanket statement on millions of people based on data that is impossible for anyone to have. Of course, the Leftist rejoinder is to simply use circular logic as justification for their lies, but delving into all of this is beyond the scope of this discussion.

Myth number 3: Socialism [or one of its aliases] is a functional governmental system

A cursory look at history is all one should need to answer this question, which is why lie number one is so prevalent. If it actually worked, there would be no need to deny that systems of socialistic slavery weren’t or aren’t actually socialism.

It is manifestly obvious that socialism [or one of its aliases] does not work, the stack of over 100 million bodies of it’s victims should be the first clue. Four hundred years of failure is also convincing along with the need in those systems to have a very heavy police apparatus to keep the people in line.

Myth number 4: Certain Scandinavian countries ARE really ‘socialist’

This is one of the Left’s go-to deflections when the subject of the failure of socialist Venezuela or any socialist system crops up. It is usually tightly partnered with the ‘That wasn’t really socialism’ lie. Suffice it to say, many have eviscerated this lie, It’s been debunked too many times to count:

Capitalism vs. Socialism
Economists in Denmark to America: Yeah, We’re Not Socialist
The Myth of Scandinavian Socialism
The Nordic Democratic-Socialist Myth

Democratic Socialism Doesn’t Exist: Like the Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot, Democratic Socialism Exists Only in Myth

These small, culturally harmonious nations have a good work ethic with the cost of their defense needs footed by the US Taxpayer. It also helps that they are blessed with mineral wealth that can fund an extensive welfare state with low expenditures on defense.

Myth number 5: Normal public functions of government are socialism

This exploits the absurd post-modernistic idea that words have no meaning. Thus they can define socialism as anything they want – think of it as Trans-collectivism. On this case, it would be LGBTOLeninism, Guild socialism, Bolshevism, Totalitarianism, Owenism.

For those whole dwell in the real world, socialism has a specific definition that doesn’t include normal governmental functions. That fact doesn’t stop Leftists from exploiting this myth to try to shame anyone who uses the roads or Libraries.

The Takeaway

Anyone who has dealt with the socialist-Left has most likely encountered one or all of these myths in some sequence. They are all mutually supporting, if you point out the plain fact that socialism doesn’t work, they will claim you don’t know what you’re talking about or that it works in Scandinavia. Knock those down and the ‘you’re a socialist if you drive on the roads’ myth will be thrown in your face. Circle back to one of the far too many failed experiments in the fraud of socialism [or one of it’s aliases] and the ‘that wasn’t really socialism’ will be used.

Were the fraud of socialism [or one of its aliases] a viable system, there would be no need for all of these interconnected mythologies. While it is far from perfect, the free enterprise system of economic Liberty is vastly superior to that of socialism, it just doesn’t fraudulently promise free stuff at the cost of individual Liberty.

Is the nation ready to revive the American Conservative Movement?

The biggest threat to Christians is the teaching of a pre-tribulation rapture

The biggest threat to Christians is the teaching of a pre-tribulation rapture

In many scriptures of the Bible, there is a “falling away” or discussion of great deceptions that are coming to the world. It has been hard for believers in Christ to comprehend the possibility of the masses falling away from Christianity because faith has been a powerful part of society for nearly two millenniums, but we are seeing it today. Moreover, we are seeing the spreading of a seed that will cause further apostasy among believers in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior: the myth of a pre-tribulation rapture.

Most who have gone to church in the last hundred years have likely considered the possibility at the very least that the rapture of the church will occur before the tribulation that is spoken of in many books of the Bible, including the Book of Revelation. Some estimates put it at 90% of the Christian church believes in a pre-tribulation rapture. The vast majority of popular churches teach that believers will be called up to Heaven before the tribulation. Simply stated, the Bible does not support this claim.

2 Thessalonians 2:1-3

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Jesus will come in the clouds and call up those who are believers. This will not happen prior to the tribulation. The sun and moon will be darkened, and then He shall return. The majority of churches that teach Imminency, the concept that Jesus will return at any moment and His people will be raptured at that time, point to one verse to counter the argument of signs that will precede His second coming:

Matthew 24:36

But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

This is obviously a true statement. It is also one that is completely misunderstood. The fact that we nor anyone else can know the day or the hour does not mean that He can come at any time. Throughout the Gospels and the writings of Paul, we hear of things that must happen before His return. It is not for us to know the day or the hour, but the season will make itself very evident. We will see certain events occur. One of those series of events are known as the Great Tribulation.

Why it is believed

The simply answer when asking why so many people, even “educated” church leaders, is that we want to believe it. It’s human nature to want to avoid persecution, war, sickness, and beheadings, all of which are spoken of as parts of the tribulation. If someone of authority tells us that we will not have to go through these things as long as we believe, it’s a message that can resonate. Those who hear the truth, that we may be living in the end times and that as a result many of us will go through great suffering due to our faith – it’s just not as positive of a message.

The not-so-simple answer is that Satan is pushing this as part of his agenda. It is Satan that rules the earth. His goal is to pull as many people away from the faith as possible, which is why he and his minions began deceiving Christians at their core starting in the early 19th century with the doctrine of a pre-tribulation rapture. He has brought about and continues to bring about waves of deceptions to pull people away from even considering the Word of the Bible, but this particular deception is to attack those who are wanting to be strong in their faith. It’s designed to shake the spirits of the believers to the point of non-belief.

Think about it. If you make people believe that they are not going to face suffering, that they are “special” and will avoid all of the troubles that will engulf the world, then they are weakened as a result. They will not be ready. When the tribulation does begin and they’re still on this planet going through it, they will begin to question their own faith. They will not be prepared to fight against persecution. They will be more willing to be deceived in order to save their lives. They will be more open to deceptions of the Anti-Christ. They will be more likely to worship the false messiah to take his mark in order to buy and sell. They will see the formation of the one world government, the one world economy, and the single world leader and they will do so more willingly than those who have their eyes open.

This is arguably the greatest deception that Satan has pulled off thus far.

Why churches teach it

Building a church is not as black and white for most as it is for others. It’s much easier to build one with a happy message than to try to build one through promises of fire and brimstone, persecution and suffering. There are those sitting in the seats of church leadership who realize that a pre-tribulation rapture is not correct but they continue to preach it in fear that their congregation will shrink or disappear altogether if they go against the grain.

As with any man-made organization, the Christian church world has a “club” among the leaders. There are those who are in the club and those who are not in the club. Those who are in the club are able to speak at events, sell books, build up an online following, and prosper as a church. Those who are not in the club have a much harder time finding relevance in this world. Today, the club is made up of pre-tribulation rapture teachers. If you’re not preaching a pre-tribulation rapture, you can’t be in the club.

It’s a catch-22 for many. Not all do it because of ignorance or greed. There are those who teach it because they feel that a message that can resonate with more people is better than a message that alienates many. In other words, they realize that they are not teaching this particular issue properly but if they can misinterpret this one little point, they’ll be able to get the other important messages out to more people. It’s a misguided attempt at an honorable sentiment that is actually more dangerous than not reaching the people at all. We believe there is a likelihood that many people will fall away in the last days, but others will open their eyes as well. If they open their eyes and start reading the Bible, they will see what they had missed their whole lives and will have an opportunity to head down the right path before it’s too late. If, however, they are weakened by expectations of a pre-tribulation rapture, it will be more difficult to bring them back to the truth.

Debating the Issue

It is sad when I read some of the assertions of those who continue to fight the truth of post-tribulation rapture. They are often excellent writers or orators fighting from a misguided perspective. For example, in the book Triumphant Return by Grant Jeffrey, he states:

Several incorrect premises have caused some to reject the pretribulation Rapture and accept the position called the “postribulation Rapture.” The first premise is an emotional contention that it would be unfair for the modern Church to escape to heaven scot free to escape the martyrdom that other believers have experienced.

In all of our studies of those promoting a post-tribulation rapture, I have never heard this premise before. It’s appalling that Jeffrey would lead with such a poor premise, as if trying to mislead the readers into believing that the post-tribulation doctrine is so weak that those who believe in it are emotional and ignorant simpletons.  Below, you will see videos of people who have formed their doctrine based solely on the Word of the Bible, who make it crystal clear that a post-tribulation rapture is without a doubt the reality, and that the theory of a pre-tribulation rapture is damaging to those to which it is taught.

The Words of Jesus Christ should be the resounding end of any debate that He will return before the tribulation:

Matthew 24:29-31

29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

There are other verses that also make it clear, but this is obviously the most specific. There are those who will say this is referring only to the Jews. There are those who will use charts and graphs to convince you of a pre-tribulation rapture. They will point to interpretations by Darby, Ephraem the Syrian, and Scofield as proof. Do not be misled.

Rather than point to the evidence or attempt to debate the concept, I will defer to a few people who have done more research on the subject than me. Please take the time to watch these videos and share this article. It’s important that believers are prepared for what’s to come. Whether it’s today or in a thousand years, we cannot allow people to be guided down a path that can lead them to be part of the falling away the Jesus spoke of in His ministry. We must open our eyes, see the truth, and spread it to all that we can.

Liz Wheeler to Catholic girls: ‘Stop pretending you’re a victim because you broke the rules and rolled up your skirt’

Liz Wheeler to Catholic girls Stop pretending youre a victim because you broke the rules and rolled

Students at Cathedral Catholic High School in San Diego are protesting their dress code. This isn’t an uncommon occurrence; there have been plenty of protests over the years, especially by feminists, in opposition to school dress codes that require girls to wear skirts. But this protest is different. The students are protesting because girls are no longer allowed to wear skirts.

Principal Kevin Calkin, the principal at Cathedral Catholic High School, changed the dress code in the most recent iteration of policy. Now, it states: “The most significant change is that skirts will no longer be an option for girls. Dress code is a perennial challenge. The dress code exists for at least three good reasons: to foster unity, to encourage modesty, and to minimize pressure to conform to particular styles or clothing brands. Basically we hope to foster a faith-based environment where students are focused on learning and not on outward appearances.”

But students brought signs and demanded the old policy be put back in place. Signs had various messages from “My body, my choice” to “Even Jesus wore one.”

The policy was put into place after the principal and others on staff had handed out “hundreds of hours of detention” to girls who would break the knee-length minimum for skirts, especially by rolling up their skirts to reveal more of their lower bodies.

One America News host Liz Wheeler lambasted the students, who apparently can’t tell the difference between rights and privileges. Only in America can students feel so victimized because they can’t wear skirts to school.

Isaiah 511 wine inflame them

Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them! – Isaiah 5:11 (KJV)

Alcoholism has been shown to be a destructive addiction, one that hurts both the individual as well as those around them. There is spiritual damage that happens as well. If you know anyone who has fallen under the evils of alcoholism of if you are addicted yourself, prayer is absolutely necessary. It can be one of the most debilitating habits that destroys lives. More importantly, it can destroy souls.
