talking out the side of they neck

Ok just wanted to vent a little bit. I know, I know, I do such quite frequently. But I just had to drop my purview on a trend I have noticed since the democratic nomination of Barack Obama. Seems that over this period, there has been an increased usage over a word that likely hasn’t been mentioned as frequently since the times of Roosevelt and Senator McCarthy – Socialism and its derivative socialist.

No I don’t think America has gained any insight or increased intellectual acumen over the past 30 years, in fact I would argue that we have become dumber and less informed. Yet still folk throw around the terms socialist and socialism as if the actually knows what they mean. I did not learn of socialism via the traditional mode as most, via the writings of folk like Karl Marx, but from an epistemological perspective. The majority of these folks likely repeat these words because they hear them from opponents of the current Presidential administration and singularly focus on it as being a centrally planned economy in which the government controls everything – especially with respect to the economic bail out and the heated health reform debate.

The truth is that Marx wrote only a few pages about socialism, and that these same folk likely never read the philosophical tractates on who I first learned of the concept from, John Stuart Mills (in picture). True, there may be some support that Lenin focused a substantial amount of attention on devising an economic system devoid of the incentives of profit. But from the extent to which the world economies, especially America’s are linked, it is impossible for Obama to turn America into a socialist state and only an idiot would make such an assertion, especially if we take the history of our arch historical cold war enemy, Russia.

From the years after the 1917 revolution, to the fail of the iron curtain, it is more than obvious that the tenants of socialism are counter supportive of a functional and/or planned economy. So if Obama is a socialist, so is George W. Bush, the House and the Senate for all are instituting what Lange described as “a bureaucratization of economic life.” Now what do I mean you may query? Well in this country, it is virtually impossible to implement any form of socialism because it has no means of establishing a rational pricing system and as long as greed or avarice cannot be obviated from the American psyche – we won’t have it. Moreover, for those who say that folks are using socialists’ as a new code word for nigger, you are mistaken. If anything, it is a code word for ignorance for these people have no percipience of what the word means and are merely speaking out the side of their necks.

it's like the phrase "conspiracy theorist." Using that phrase to attack someone is a good way to discredit them without using any evidence to refute their claims

Honsetly I haven't heard this word since my school days and then all of a sudden I hear it everywhere. I should probably do my own research on it but you have done a very informative post here my friend.

Oh and when you say "dumber and less informed" is a way to describe our countries progress.. I disagree. I think they are well aware of what's going on they just don't give a damn!

Sincerely,

Go

I spent the weekend watching documentaries. There was one on HBO on Demand about the conservative base during the national campaign. One of the men who was interviewed used the term socialism at least 6 times to describe Obama's politics. The interviewer asked if he could explain what a socialist is. That's when it got pretty funny. He couldn't give a definition. He actually asked the director if he could look it up and get back to her on the subject. Which did not surprise me at all. A lot of people talk about socialism and do not even have a fundamental idea of what is in that particular political philosophy. The residue to the Cold War mentality still exists in this nation.

You raised some good food for thought in this post. It would be nice if the conservative base took time to read what you've said.

LORD HAVE MERCY! Very imformative though.

Of course they dont know what there talking about the whole tactic to combat Obama is to spread misinformation and to scare people which is why they not only shout out socialism but use the Nazi imagery as well.

And to top matters off there are already socialist type programs already in place such as medicaid, social security, and corporate grants and so on.

I agree that this country would be hard pressed to fall into a socialist ideology only because the framework of this country at it's conception is that of a capitalist corporation. The United States is not a Democractic goverment but a business to change that around you would have to tear the country up from the bottom up.

I agree with you on about half brother, but lets be honest America is a communist nation by majority. Every plank of the communist manifesto is alive and well in the united states. True most of it is by volunteering and some of it is by adhesion contract like your SSN, Birth Cert and Marriage License, or your choice to send your kid to public school or participate in the central banking system. But the difference between Communist America and Free America is the fact that you have a choice. Other socialist nations its mandatory. The problem is 99% of everyone in America goes right along with socialism.

Most of my conservative counterparts keep saying over and over "Baracks a Socialist!" That is until I say "yea, so are you, how many planks do you practice?" I may have alot of conservative values but at least I don't just repeat the Same republican talking point over and over. Libertarian philosophy is never appreciated by the irrational I guess.

Ours is an envionment where evil is perceived to be rewarded while good is punished. As with everything the Gods have a reason for creating this perception::::
People who fall on the good side of the good/evil scale have more favor, and when they do something wrong the Gods punish them BECAUSE THEY WANT THEM TO LEARN. The Gods want them to receive this feedback in hope they make corrections and begin to behave appropriately. The Gods DON'T like evil and refuse to grant this feedback.
EVERYBODY pays for what they do wrong, only evil people must wait until their next life before they will experience the wrath of the Gods, manifested in their reincarnation as a lower form of life into environments with increased/enhanced temptations.
Sadly, this allows the Gods to position this perception of evil rewarded as temptation, one which they use as an EXTREMELY effective corruptor.

Both Africa and the Medittereanean are regions which have sexual issues. This is a sign of morbid disfavor once you understand that females are the God's favored gender. Muhammad's (Mohammed's) polygamy halfway through his life as a prophet was preditory. Now a huge percentage of Muslims believes in male superiority and that the abuse of women is God's will. Female genital mutilation is still practiced in Africa. Black misogyny is the most eggregious example in the recent past.
Black member size is temptation to a predisposed population.
The patriarchal cancer spread throughout Europe because of Christianity, of which the majority of policy makers were Italian men.

Militancy in Africa is consistant with the Iraqi example, as was slavery and the KKK here in America:::Fear enforces proper behavior. Without it we see what happens as a result of gross/morbid disfavor:::::AIDS, crack babies, dead young men in gangland retaliation killings. This is the purpose behind many black's historical tendancy towards resistance.
The same principle was true in Europe and throughout the world for centuries:::People whom lived under iron fists were conditioned to think the right way. As a result they experienced higher numbers of children accend into heaven because they were taught to think and behave appropriately. Our preditory envionment of "freedom" was the primary purpose the Gods had when implimenting this strategy that is the United States, one which they used to spred the cancer of democracy and westernization throughout the world. And the Gods use this tool that is America to prey on the disfavored both at home and abroad.

Even the Old Testiment is not to be taken literally, but the Gods do offer clues throughout to help the disfavored:::The apple is a tool of temptation used to corrupt Adam and Eve and cast them out of the Garden of Eden.
There is another lesson to be learned from this passage, and it is quite similar to the vailing issue and the discourse over women's attire which ultimately died in the 70s:::Women are responsible for and control the fate of mankind.

Think about what I say. Consider what I teach. Society is going to become disturbingly ugly as we approach the Apocalypse due to spiralling, runaway disfavor.
I do not know when this will occurr, but it is the God's way to grant some time before they end on Planet Earth.
Make the decision to always be good and never look back. Until you do this technology will employ tactics to test your resolve:::Ridicule, beligerance, doubt and refusal to abandon what people perceive to be their "investment".
Pray daily. Think appropriately. Too many are confident, unaware of the God's awesome powers or their status as antients. Others may fall prey to their positioning.
Be humbled, God-fearing and beware of the God's temptations, for everyone is tested to evaluate their worthiness.
