The Political Movement Scams in an Age of Propaganda.

The pseudo-rise of socialism in the US is a scam.

We can have polls to show it isn’t much of a movement, but the numbers are even lower than that.

Socialism is the same mafia under a different label. Do not be naive.

Think about it: how did it start? In a sea of social media users drowned out by billions of cat pictures, why did that get any attention?

Simple, because you have pr forms and political operatives who pushed it, and paid for attention, and someone has to have millions of dollars to burn for it. There is no other way.

Why would conservatism be shadow-banned by social media — accounting for a princely chunk of its revenue stream — but not socialism that goes against their business model?

These games are nothing new, just updated versions that only the culturally and historically illiterate do not see.

When Communism came into the now former Yugoslavia, the people who were rich before Communism stayed rich. The people who were poor before Communism stayed poor. Only university-educated public servants lost out — the Middle Class. People in power play the system because that is their strength, and no matter what is the label, they know how to manipulate it and rig it to their advantage. They change the mask and the script’s content, but the structure stays the same.

For the Middle Class never had to struggle before then and became too soft. They took the rigged system for granted as their parents pushed them into jobs through who they knew. Once the old system became tainted, they lost out the most.

But the rich grew richer.

My grandfather was a case in point of someone who was wealthy before and after Communism.

He ran a blackmarket. He could get you anything. During the Communist regime, he had his own private zoo with a monkey. He had a circus camped out on his front lawn. He had a fleet of boats. He used the Danube during the war to transport goods from multiple countries.

Right after the First World War, when he came to Belgrade, he was homeless, literally living under a bridge. It didn’t take him long to make his obscene wealth. He went hunting with royalty, getting a jewel-encrusted rifle from Serbian Prince George.

During the War, his business boomed.

But it flourished under Communism.

The government gave him his labour for his fishing business — soldiers (in a time where every male of a certain age had to serve) and prisoners. All he had to do was feed them and supply water to the army, which cost him nothing as it was on his property. The fish they ate was the ones they caught. No worker’s rights. He had a captive workforce and didn’t have to share his profits from his legitimate business — or his underground one.

He lived like a king, partying in nightclubs, buying rounds for the entire bar. He had no trouble bribing officials to get his way — and they were highly bribable.

Workers of the world unite? Yeah, on granddad’s property to work like a horse for fish.

So here is a system that pretended to be equitable, but wasn’t equitable. The rich stayed rich. The poor stayed poor. The Middle Class couldn’t find stable work and had to live with their parents. The only people whose lives change are those who have university degrees who had public sector jobs who are now “tainted” with the “wrong kind” of education, and must be discarded for those who will work for less with less benefits, but have the “correct” indoctrinated mindset.

So when I hear about people spewing about socialism, I know there is serious money behind it. It is the perfect misdirection. Get youth alienated from their more experienced parents, tell them lies how they are “owed”, and have a face-saving way of getting that champagne socialist lifestyle so people don’t know they are “failed” social media stars and don’t have to work.

Tearing generations apart in order for one rich tycoon to have fresh, young, and gullible minions and workers toil at his whim is as old as the human race.

It would be nice is one generation broke the trend, started asking critical and skeptical questions as they were political atheists, learn from the past, and then forge new paths without being disrespectful to the old.

But vanity, envy, and greed gets in the way, and then someone offers another face-saving out — pretending there is a moral reason when there is none. It is the same old tricks that can be played on those raised in a patriarchal mindset where there can only be The One — but it is a lie to tell the masses whose fears blind them to happier places by looking within before embracing the world around them…

Political Appropriation: Does any loudmouth schnook have an original idea in 2019? No.

Rightist ideology never sat well with me because it is very rigid, but it encourages intellectual innovation. Leftist ideology never sat well with me because even though it preaches equality, there is something very symbiotic about it: it is always about wanting access to certain things, but not much about bypassing those things to build original things.

Breaking a glass ceiling is good. Making your own castle is even better.

However, nothing beats building your own castle based on your own resources, ingenuity, grit, smarts, visions, materials, and ideas.

If the Left were original creatives, it would be one thing, but they aren’t, and why I don’t align that way.

The US Democrats aren’t very original and what they say is rich. Elizabeth Warren is such a case:

Today, millions and millions and millions of American families are also struggling to survive in a system that has been rigged by the wealthy and the well-connected…

Yes, Ms. Warren, the system is rigged for people such as you to directly benefit from it. You are a politician; so can it. You are the Establishment. You are the Man; so shut the fuck up.

You are co-opting someone else’s message to grab power to take for yourself. Shove off.

And this champagne socialist kick is really a classic case of political plagiarism.

It is 2019. Stop this naked attempt at political appropriation. It is even more offensive than cultural appropriation. You are stealing other people’s ideas. Worse, you are stealing ideas that were proven not to work.

The second you politically appropriate a system, you have signalled that you have no original ideas. You follow a script. You are not capable of originality. You are a leech who takes other people’s work so that you can ride on their coattails.

That is not a visionary. That is a thief who wants all the power, control, and glory, but not have to earn it.

The Left are political appropriators. In 2019, you do not have a single person who has one single original idea? One that comes from seeing the current environment and takes moderns factors in consideration?

You are stealing ideas from Western white men, and then think you’re equal?

You are only equal if you have the gravitas and guts to come up with your own new ideas.

And what are you really saying? That people aren’t equal because they all have to steal from the other side?

I do not steal other people’s ideas. I have my own vision and my own way of seeing the world, and doing things. You can be inspired, but you can also think of new ways to do it. If capitalism is antiquated; so is socialism. They both come from an oppressive era from the same oppressive continent.

When you have parents who shield their children from experiencing the consequences of their failure while allowing corporate interests to bombard them with propaganda about how they are special and don’t need to do anything else but pout fishy faces on Instagram, they will fail, and want a face-saving easy solution that does not involve admitting flaw or having to work.

But the humbling is coming. When you try to avoid paying the piper, the piper merely adds interest to the payment. Pay now and move on, or pay later as you are buried under a mountain of rubble.

It will be interesting to see the implosion that was completely unnecessary. Why we don’t have new schools of thought in this regard is mystifying. For all the talk about being woke and diversity, we have yet to see any evidence for it.

Instead, people keep going to the same poisoned well, and then expect a healthy outcome in the bargain…
