Bernie Sanders, Lizzie Warren, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of the far-left Democrats seem enamored with so called “Democratic-Socialism” and seem to think it’s exactly what Americans have been waiting for.
Truth is democratic-socialism is nothing more than the good old fashioned failed socialism from the past wrapped up in a new package.
Here in three cartoons is the truth about Bernie, Lizzie and Alexandria’s “democratic-socialism:”
First, of course, Democratic-socialism is nothing more than the failed policies of the past repackaged for a new generation:
Then, truth be told the only thing that allows European style socialism to work is it’s powered by American capitalism:
And finally, the bottom line truth about democratic-socialism:
Does that about sum the whole thing up?
Speaking of socialism and how it works…
China Shows What Socialist Governments Do To Religious People As It Orders Changes Made To Bible, Quran
If you ever wondered what socialists and communists do when they come to power, you need look no further than The People’s Republic of China.
What they are doing next follows an old doctrine of socialist and communist leaders, eliminating religious texts.
But rather than outright banning them they are taking another approach. They are changing the texts of The Bible and Quran to support socialist and communist values.
It is rather interesting that they would need to do that, as American liberals have been telling us for decades that Jesus was a socialist.
If that were the case, why would China not only leave The Bible as is but have it in every school as mandatory reading?
Simple, because nowhere in The Bible, or the Quran is the idea of the state taking what people earn and redistributing it ever glorified as a good thing.
The Communist Party that controls China did not mention The Bible and The Quran by name but it did call for a “comprehensive evaluation of the existing religious classics aiming at contents which do not conform to the progress of the times,” The Daily Mail reported.
The order was given in November during a meeting held by the Committee for Ethnic and Religious Affairs of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, which oversees the ethnic and religious matters in China.
A group of 16 experts, believers and representatives of different religions from the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China attended the conference in last month, according to Xinhua News Agency.
The meeting was supervised by Wang Yang, Chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference.
Mr Wang stressed that religious authorities must follow President Xi’s instructions and interpret the ideologies of different religions in accordance with ‘the core values of Socialism’ and ‘the requirements of the era’, French newspaper Le Figaro reported yesterday.
“In many ways, the Chinese government’s control, including censorship of the Bible and the Quran, has twisted the doctrines of these religious texts and thus the religions.
“There is simply no genuine religious freedom,” Patrick Poon, who is a China Researcher at Amnesty International, said to The Mail.
Leaked documents showed that China has run a program to indoctrinate Muslims in the province of Xinjiang.
Experts at the United Nations have said that one million, or more, Muslims are being held in detention centers in the region.
This is what socialism and communism bring. It starts with control of private industry and it keeps growing and growing until it controls even your mind.
No matter how good the promises of socialism appear to be when it starts, it is the end game that is frightening.
