These guidelines were originally published as “Rules for Revolution” in 1919 and subsequently reprinted in American newspapers during the 1950s.

    No surprise. The dumb bitch was picked on so much in Hawaii by whites, Hawaiians, and Asians, he’s just looking for someone to get even with. Unfortunately the little nerd has picked our economy as a means to extract revenge. To bad he found enough losers to vote for him again. Doesn’t speak highly for the I.Q. of the American electorate.

    A couple of questions. First, Lenin was in competition with the West, and needed to destroy a more successful system than what he was proposing and trying to establish. Who are we competing with? We created the most successful nation in history, and there simply is no other nation that is as blessed as ours.

    Second, what is the end game? It seems obvious that the goal is to gain power, but how are they going to maintain that power and status? In creating a populace that is shallow and dependent, the government must maintain some level of material benefits, or the natives will become restless. And restless natives are a short step away from dangerous and rebellious natives.

    Finally, why? Lenin was creating a strong central government (which turned out to be corrupt and brutal) in a nation that had historically a strong (and usually corrupt and brutal) monarchy. However, we are not that, and virtually everyone knows that the liberal policies being espoused now are unworkable. So, why?

    @Wyatt–

    Why? Partly, just because they think they can. And partly just for kicks. JMO.

    As far as how they are going to maintain that power and status, maybe by convincing the “natives” that everything is someone else’s fault. They’ve been pretty successful in that so far.

    Sociopaths, psychopaths, narcissists do what they are wired to do. From controlling and manipulating a small group of people on up to controlling and manipulating a whole nation of people. Humanity has had these people in our midsts since we became, well, human. They just do what they do and enjoy the game at each stage of its progression.

    The bigger question is: why do societies let the worst of the worse of these characters grow their power bases? Why aren’t the wiser people in a society who spot these characters early on and call them out not taken more seriously by the populace? Why do so many people in a society aid and abet these awful characters all along their path to ultimate power?

    Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

    When I was in high school (freshman ’77) I warned my fellow classmates we were headed for communism. They laughed me to scorn. The dingbat Jimmah Cahtah was not sufficient proof for them.

    Joe McCarthy was right, he just didn’t realize that the infiltration could reach all the way to POTUS by way of these guidlines and massive entitlements.

    Over the years, I have read many liberal Professors writings of the Soviet Utopia. The USSR is their wet dream of the perfect state. Many truly believe that that model will work in the USA if it is run by smart people like them and not greedy Russians. I don’t have any links to offer, but do some research on the “Soviet Utopia” as seen from the elite Acedemia crowd.

    Menderman, a great book is The Forgotten Man by Amity Shlaes. She does a great job of outlining how all of pieces of liberals dream of a Soviet Utopia here started and continues still. Time line is early 1920′s thru the start of WW 2.
