I purport to you that Communism is back in full force under the guise of Social Justice and Political Correctness. These three terms are one and the same thing, just different names for different times.
The Communism principles are still the same; but, in order to reach out to the masses, to lure them into their nets, they have been appealing to the masses at the emotional level. Hence, Social Justice, normally a term for caring for those on the fringe or in need now became a term for equality and equal distribution. Around the same time, we began hearing the term “Politically Correct”.
Definition of politically correct. : conforming to a belief that language and practices which could offend political sensibilities (as in matters of sex or race) should be eliminated.
Abstract: For its proponents, “social justice” is usually undefined. Originally a Catholic term, first used about 1840 for a new kind of virtue (or habit) necessary for post-agrarian societies, the term has been bent by secular “progressive” thinkers to mean uniform state distribution of society’s advantages and disadvantages. Social justice is really the capacity to organize with others to accomplish ends that benefit the whole community. If people are to live free of state control, they must possess this new virtue of cooperation and association. This is one of the great skills of Americans and, ultimately, the best defense against statism.
Let us begin by asking what most people think social justice is. After that, let us review how the term arose. It is a Catholic concept, later taken over by secular progressives. What social justice actually is turns out to be very different from the way the term is now used popularly. The entire article may be found here “Social Justice: Not what you think it is”.
Here is Leo XIII’s attack on the very ideal of equality as a social ideal:
Therefore, let it be laid down in the first place that in civil society, the lowest cannot be made equal with the highest. Socialists, of course, agitate the contrary, but all struggling against nature is in vain. There are truly very great and very many natural differences among men. Neither the talents nor the skill nor the health nor the capacities of all are the same, and unequal fortune follows of itself upon necessary inequality in respect to these endowments.
Such inequality is far from being disadvantageous either to individuals or to the community. Social and public life can only be maintained by means of various kinds of capacity for business and the playing of many parts; and each man, as a rule, chooses the part which suits his own peculiar domestic condition. (Social Justice: Not what you think it is)
One of the visionarys from Medjugoree, who just wrote a book, stated that the Blessed Mother mentioned March 18 and August 2 as important dates in 2017. What does that mean….obviously something important is going to happen. Secondly, we know that the Blessed Mother had also mentioned to Loli, one of the Garabandal Visionarys, that “everything will happen when Communism comes back”.
I would say “Communism” has been back for quite some time. I came across a very interesting posting by 1P5 today whereby they quoted Bishop Schneider who grew up under Communist rule. Here is what he had to say;
“The reaction to the dubia is a proof of the climate in which we actually live in the Church right now,” Bishop Schneider said. “We live in a climate of threats and of denial of dialogue towards a specific group.”
Schneider went to say that “dialogue seems to be accepted only if you think like everyone else – that is practically like a regime.”
Schneider brought up his experience in Russia, where he was born in the time of the Soviet Union. His parents were sent by Stalin to work camps, or “Gulags,” after the Second World War. “If you didn’t follow the line of the party, or you questioned it, you couldn’t even ask. That is for me a very clear parallel to what is happening now in the reactions to the dubia – questions – of the Cardinals.” From “Have the “Errors of Russia Now Infected Rome”?
Another eye witness of Communism has also recently given us further proof that the current anti-family and gender ideology – which finds increasing acceptance in Vatican circles, to include the pope himself – has troubling similarities to historical Communism. Dr. Anca-Maria Cernea, a Catholic medical doctor and participant at the 2015 Synod of Bishops on the Family, recently gave an interview to Edward Pentin where she says the following (I shall also print here in italics some of Pentin’s own specific questions put to Dr. Cernea):
Would you say your and others’ experience of communism in Central and Eastern Europe has a lot to offer, in terms of tacking this crisis in the Church?
Yes, for us, also, it’s easier, because we went through this for decades. … Now, we’re in a better position to fight this aggression. We are better placed to fight, those of us interested in this. We are more familiar with real Marxism than our brothers and sisters in the West.
You see more clearly what’s happening?
Yes, and there’s no doubt that it is Marxism. In our country, when you visit some internet pages, if there’s a new article about political correctness, you can see people commenting, and they’re saying it [political correctness] is communism, and asking, “Don’t you people realize it’s communism?” It is communism, and the people who make such comments tend to have a very clear intuition. They are correct.
Dr. Cernea says that it is a form of cultural Marxism and of Gramscianism that stands behind the current crisis of the family. (From “Have the errors of Russia now infected Rome? – 1P5)
Look at half of our politicians….Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, Pelosi, Obama, Reid and many, many others who have been trying to gather us all into a neat little box and make everything equal…equal distribution, equal pay, equal this and equal that. Everyone gets the same treatment, etc. Except do they really. No, because if you are a Christian who refuses to have anything to do with same sex marriage or the like you are fined or imprisoned. We no longer have the same rights to think as we want or believe as we want. We are punished if we do not believe in the same value system as the left. This is Communism tactics. I am reading a book my daughter gave me called “Execution by Hunger” – the Hidden Holocaust in which 7 million peasant farmers in the Ukraine were starved to death because Stalin wanted to collectivize all the farmers into one big entity. If they refused their lands, homes, and food were taken from them. They all had to be equal, and do it for the good of all. He promised them happiness and prosperity. Well it didn’t work. Trust me folks, this doesn’t work. Half of our nation is on welfare and food stamps already. They are being taken care of by the Government. The Government wants to tell us when to stand up and when to sit down. what we can eat and drink and think and believe. This is not democracy.
Now the left is doing whatever they can possibly do to stop Donald Trump, President elect from taking office. They are having the biggest hissy fit I have ever seen in my lifetime – in the United States. They didn’t get what they want and now they will stop at nothing. They are simply delirious with hate. The hypocrisy is really quite unbelievable. But they do forget one important factor. God is in control here.
The articles I linked to above are very interesting and do give us an insight as to what is really happening here. The language that the Progressives have been using for years is really the language of Communism.
