Friend of the Empire, Admiral Kender comes up with a delightful perspective on socialism and why it’s vile.

An Open Letter To Socialists

Any post that starts in this manner:

I will keep this short and sweet.

I despise you.

Just has to be worth a read, and it truly is.

    If I may paraphrase Agent Smith from the movie The Matrix: “There is one organism that most closely represents socialists. It is a virus. They move into an area, use all of the available resources, then move on.

    Socialism will always lose, because it is too heavy. What do I mean by that? If you are a socialist, the great weight you must carry around (be it emotional, financial, the weight of fear, or the weight of “caring”) will either a) cause you to collapse or b) cause you to throw it off and actually live. The human spirit is crippled by the first and shines with G-d’s light with the second. Again, from the movie The Matrix: Think of the last scene where Neo flies through the air; after all, he’s free.

    As I said over there (once it gets through moderation), that didn’t just merely nail it to the wall, that chiseled the fucking thing INTO the wall.

    I’ve tried for years to put into a few, well-chosen words just exactly what it is that I hate and despise about socialism and why it is a malignant tumor on the pancreas of humanity, yet for all of my efforts I’ve never managed to sum it up that well.

    Socialism is the destroyer of souls, it is the crusher of spirits, the velvet shackles (if you’re “lucky” and live in one of the “NuSocialism” countries) around your wrists and ankles, it is the enemy of all that is good, the murderer of individualism, the killer of joy, the toxin that destroys all it touches, a blight upon humanity, a fate truly worse than death.

    And as someone who grew up in a country devoted to the “new and improved, kinder socialism”, I can say honestly that that is the worst kind of them all because it’s so insidious. You don’t notice the oppression, the dull, gray nature of existence, the absence of hope for a better life and true achievement because it’s so “nice.” You don’t notice it until you, like I, are lucky enough to escape to a country where freedom is still more than just a word.

    Then it blows your mind away. Then you wonder how the fuck you managed to live for all of those years without noticing that you were nothing but a slave, how you could be stupid enough, ignorant enough to not even recognize everything that you’d been missing. And, most of all, you wonder how you managed to keep yourself from strangling all of the damn socialists with your own two hands, one by fucking one until there was none left.

    They took away several decades of my life. They stole decades that I could have spent doing well for myself and my loved ones. They made me accept slavery as the way things are. They made my urge to succeed and spread my wings lie dormant. They tried to murder me; if not physically, then in spirit, and that’s WORSE. They made me accept the unacceptable, they robbed me of years I could have spent much better, years that none of us have too many of.

    They committed murder and they did it with a smug, condescending smile on their fucking wretched socialist faces.

    I’m more than happy to return the favor, only my smile will be one of utter satisfaction when I slit their throats. And I won’t regret it. Ever.

    Swine.

    Oh, and to further elaborate (and demonstrate once again how I can never shut up on that subject), socialism is the greatest evil in the world because it takes away the most precious gift of all, the one thing that makes us stand out, the birthright that G-d himself (or nature, if you don’t believe in G-d) gave us:

    Free will.

    It suffocates it beneath a blanket of totalitarianism, a mindless mantra of “the common good” designed only to keep you in shackles. It destroys the one thing that is worth living for.

    I have a simple rule for how a free man or woman should comport his or her own self:

    Do as you will, as long as your actions do not deliberately or predictably cause undeserved harm unto others.

    “The common good” can go screw itself. I don’t know it. It doesn’t pay my mortgage, it doesn’t sign my paychecks, and it is never, EVER something that you are invited to support. It always comes from the other end of a barrel with the threat of imprisonment or death to go along with it.

    I never knew what freedom was until I came to this country and was adopted by the greatest nation to ever grace this Earth, and I will die before I’ll relinquish it again.

    But I won’t die alone.

    I must add to that article because the goal of socialism is to control the populace by dragging everyone down to the same LOWEST common denominator.

    Socialists will do everything to frustrate those who want to take the ladder to the clouds. If those wishing to climb to the clouds show any signs of success, the socialist will hit them with onerous regulations. If the regulations do not stop them then the next step is punitive taxes.

    Socialists then get Left wing NGO’s to campaign against them claiming that they did not climb the ladder fairly. Or they are destroying the environment, gained it on someone else’s back or a host of other conceived evils while reaching the clouds.

    Many wandering about on the easy level will insist that those in the clouds must give up the fruit of their labour to support those who won’t leave the cushions.

    But even those who choose to go to the easy level will not be left alone because of those who just stay in the cushions rather than even go to that easy level. The Socialist stance is that since it is unfair that some were left behind those on the easy level must be pulled back down.

    Thus the reason socialist societies always tank, Remember Argentina under Peron? Soon Chevez will drag the oil rich Venezuela down the tubes as well. The drive to succeed is killed and no one wants to put out because you will be no better off than anyone who just simply sits on their ass.

    However once the population is bought off on free doctor visits and easy pogey, anyone who tries to undo the damage is damned to a thankless existence.

    Hobo
    I’ll try to overlook the whining comment, since I doubt you know anything about me.

    We did not have the money for me to work in my field for a number of years–lab lost funding. I am back at it now, but it takes a very long time and a degree of luck to get to that stage of the ladder and may not be possible to do again. In fact, I am so dedicated to climbing the ladder that I am working for free and buying some of my own lab supplies, so I can start publishing again and move upwards. Don’t give me a hard time! (There are things you don’t know about that merited lots of cushions)

    If you ask me the analogy was pretty lame. It was a straw man argument. If you are going to use this amalogy, at least do justice to what the actual socialist argument is. (Just as a disclaimer before you all predictably call me a Stalinist stooge: I myself am not much of a socialist; I sympathize too strongly with libertarian arguments, but if either socialisits or libertarians took over it would be disaster either way.)

    Imagine a ladder. Imagine a wall that stretches for infinity and has ladders all along it.

    The socialist would disagree with this very premise. The ladders are not “just there” all along the wall. The ladders must be created. Perhaps the socialist argument would go as follows:

    There are a group of people who, because their great grandfathers massacred the original population of the forest, claim ownership the forest which is the source of the wood for the ladders. They also own the factory which turns wood into ladders. They set the entire population to work making the ladders. The workers each make on average 10 feet of ladder per day, but as compensation for there work they only get one of those feet of ladder. The owners do very little of the actual construction of ladder, but reap most of the benefits of the ladders, and thus live at a much higher altitude than the people actually making the ladders. Trying to “save up” ladders in order to try to later make one big ladder is useless because ten one foot ladders DO NOT equal one ten foot ladder (due to its structural instability when trying to tie them together). The result is that a very few people who do none of the work get the “glory” of climbing up the wall while the actual creators of the ladders can never even get of the first level of bare survival.

    The goal of socialism is not to give everyone a ladder of equal length, but to give everyone equal access to the trees of the forest, and thus let them keep a larger share of the ladder that they themselves created. In order to ensure that everyone has an equal access to trees, a public body is appointed which should, in theory, be democratically elected.

    I was going to try to start refuting the socialist argument, but you guys can probably do alot better than I can. The refutation should go into why such a public body can never be democratically responsive, and why a private owner really gives the workers more ladder than a publically elected entity. At least do it honestly, not by refuting ridiculous arguments like “socialists want everyone to make the same amount of money.” Maybe brain dead fourteen year olds believe this is what socialism is, but as far as I know no serious socialist ever claimed this.

    If somebody can find me a quote where Marx claims that the goal of socialism is to have everyone make the same amount of money, I will send them twenty dollars or a case of beer or something.

In order to ensure that everyone has an equal access to trees, a public body is appointed which should, in theory, be democratically elected.

    No, the goal of Socailism is CONTROL. They steal the tree’s that someone else has planted, and give them to people too damn lazy to plant their own, then deny the recipients of the stolen trees the use of tools to make ladders from them. Then, they call the result “Universal Tree Access.”

    They do this with taxes.
    With welfare payments.
    With regulations.
    All, of course, for the good of the children / downtrodden / oppressed / etdamncettera.

    And all the while, our “protectors” accumulate more power for themselves.

    You don’t need to HAVE the money, if you control how it can be spent.

    A pox on all their houses. Damn the ones with eyes who refuse to see.
