As far as communism went, in my opinion, is fascism.
The so called communism in western societies it was referred to as communism.
The Marxism-Leninism referred to it as socialism because it was not yet the workers
paradise. It never got to be the workers paradise.
Anyways, there were arguments about different things, but the word socialism was used
differently in the Soviet Union than in Western Europe. It was kind of like “newtalk” in 1984.
Use the word in a different meaning to confuse everybody and prevent communication.
Same thing with the word “believe”. Religious people use the word believe in the sense of
devotional worship. Non religious people use the word believe in the sense of; I think may be so.
So on soviet terms they declared they did not reach communism. Their definition of communism
was different. The soviets declared that they were in the state of socialism, and that will lead
to communism. According the communist manifesto, communism has win all over the word with
or without weapons. I guess they were going to make everybody love them, yes they were.
Shortly after that their society fell apart and they gave up. So much for the determination.
There were some groups who worked a lot. There was a highly idealized group called the
stahanovists. Those people did pride themselves spending their life in work. The only problem
was that this pride did not originate from Marxism-Leninism, but it originated from anabaptist
religious points of views. And the soivets did not want to support the religious points of views,
so the stahanovists slowly faded away, and production dropped. And the Games People Play
took over productive work, and the society fell. That is one small story from the Soviet Union.
In the soviet communist system I had to carry id paper with me all the time. I could be stopped
by a policeman and my id papers could be examined. In the id paper there there was a section
about employment, and if I had no employment for a continuous 3 month , that would had been
a reason for an arrest. That was the law. Is not that resemble more to fascism? And they were
going to make everybody love them. It was just man made law, but they thought they were god,
even though they did not believe in god. The communists devotedly worshiped Marx and Lenin.
They even stuffed Lenin’s body and put it on display.
After the fall of the soviet system; facts were gathered about it by eye witnesses. There is a
web site about some of the history of communism in Hungary. The web site concludes, that the
communists spent significant amount of their life in prison, mostly sentenced by each others.
It was an artificial society with artificial laws. Physical facts are not only the assassination of
Trockij, but the mass graves of the Butovo Firing Range.
And that is the story of the liberal left ideas. The story of fascism is just as bad.
So that is my opinion about man made “laws” I try to not take my ideas so seriously,
one way or another.
