Socialism: opiate of the masses

Socialism: opiate of the masses

by Jon Rappoport

September 1, 2017

Let’s get something straight. There is no pure form of socialism, where “the government owns the means of production.”

The means of production own the government, and vice versa. It’s always collusion. Elite power players stitch themselves together like a walking Frankenstein corpse.

Socialism can be done with a smile or with guns and jails. Styles vary.

In 1966, Carroll Quigley, author of Tragedy and Hope, wrote: “The Council on Foreign Relations [CFR] is the American branch of a society which originated in England [and] believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established.”

You could call the CFR’s agenda socialism or Globalism or fascism or dictatorship—it doesn’t matter. For the sake of brevity, I’ll call it socialism.

At street level (not within the CFR), every proponent of the socialist “solution” either has no idea who installs it and runs it, or he astonishingly believes “the government” can be transformed into a beneficent enterprise and shed its core corruption, as it takes the reins of absolute power.

Meanwhile, the ultra-wealthy elites who use socialism as a weapon, while propagandizing it as our humanitarian future, know full well THEY will run it, and they have no qualms about placing severe limits on the freedom of populations. They want to impose those limits.

Hope and Change, the slogan of the former US president, was perfect for street-level socialists. It was vague enough to be injected with their own vague dreams and fantasies.

Colleges—or as I call them, Academies of Great Generalities—have been turning out these fantasists by the ton. “If I feel it, it must be true and good.”

One such idealist, back in the 1960s, was a young man named James Kunen. But smarter by far than most of his comrades, he wrote a book called The Strawberry Statement: Notes on a College Revolutionary. A member of the Left group, Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), Kunen recalled a curious event at the 1968 SDS Convention:

“…at the convention, men from Business International Roundtables—the meetings sponsored by Business International for their client groups and heads of government—tried to buy up a few [Leftist] radicals. These men are the world’s leading industrialists and they convene to decide how our lives are going to go. These are the boys who wrote the Alliance for Progress. They’re the left wing of the ruling class.”

“…They offered to finance our demonstrations in Chicago. We were also offered Esso (Rockefeller) money. They want us to make a lot of radical commotion so they can look more in the center as they move to the left.”

Rockefeller elites moving to the political Left? What?

Look at it this way. If you’re a Rockefeller man, what brand of rhetoric are you going to use to sell your con? The “Utopian-better-world-for-the-people (Leftist)”, or the “we-want-mega-corporations-to-cheat-and-lie-and-steal-the-people-blind-and-co-opt-the-government (Rightist)”?

Since any brand of rhetoric is designed to end up in the same place—global control—you’re going to pick the more attractive-sounding version.

It’s simply a matter of workability and expedience.

That’s why the lingo of Leftist socialism has come to the fore.

That’s the only reason.

If a Rockefeller operative could use, to good effect, tales of enemies invading Earth from a parallel universe, he would.

In 1928, the historian Oswald Spengler wrote: “There is no proletarian, not even a Communist movement, that has not operated in the interests of money, and for the time being permitted by money—and that [operation has continued] without the idealists among its leaders having the slightest suspicion of the fact.”

Is there a college anywhere in the world that acknowledges and teaches this? The insight is not permitted. It would torpedo too many platitudes and reveal too many false trails laid down by elite deceivers.

David Rockefeller, writing his 2003 Memoirs, baldly asserted: “Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

Of course, Rockefeller stopped short of saying he and his colleagues, in the core of the CFR and the Trilateral Commission, were using socialism and high-flying utopian rhetoric merely to enlist the Left in his “one-world” cause. He never admitted the notions of “social justice” and “equality” were being peddled to the gullible masses for the same reason.

If he had come clean, victims (both real and self-imagined) would understand they were fighting against the very oppressors who were backing, funding, encouraging, and controlling them.

The sought–after global triumph of socialism is a cover for elite global management and tyranny.

“Thanks for your help. Now that we’ve won, you’re under the gun. Our gun.”

Flashing forward to today, one can see this sales job operating in boardrooms of the tech giants (Google, Facebook, etc.) The corporate leaders (the new Rockefellers and Carnegies) claim they’re proponents of “digital socialism,” which they ludicrously define as open access to the wonders of the Internet for all people everywhere, including the poor and bereft. But the last time I looked, those people can’t eat a YouTube video for a breakfast they can’t afford.

This nonsensical fluff hides the same core buried in old-time socialism: the leaders at the top, who have made their mega-fortunes, want to turn around and eliminate competition. Share and care doesn’t apply to the marketplace. The tech CEOs want to collude with government to gain special favors and benefits their lesser rivals can’t obtain.

“We love everyone and care about everyone, but don’t challenge us. We’re the bosses. We own the game.”

The tech giants want much more. They intend to lead the way, with their government partners, into an even tighter control of information (censorship) and a more vast Surveillance State.

They intend to build a technocratic planet, in which planned societies are the foundation. Citizens are “data-points” to be inserted into slots, from cradle to grave, as a worldwide system is constructed.

Notions of fairness, equality, and other terms of socialism are deployed as a front for this massive operation.

Some might say this version of Brave New World/1984 bears no resemblance to socialism.

But they would be wrong. This version is perfect socialism, once you realize the whole socialist “political philosophy” was never anything more than paper-thin propaganda.

It was a nothing made into something.

It falls apart and blows away, and the skull-grin of control comes into view. The same grin existed in the medieval Roman Church, in the ancient Roman emperorship, in the Egypt of the Pharaohs, in Babylonia, in Sumer, in Mayan and Aztec civilizations, in tribes and clans long buried and forgotten.

Only the language of the sellers to the buyers has changed.

Mao Zedong (aka Mao Tse-tung), founding father and ruler of Communist China, openly declared: “Socialism…must have a dictatorship, it will not work without it.” Mao didn’t beat around the bush. In maintaining his dictatorship, he discovered he might have a problem with between 40 and 70 million of his own people. So, just to make sure, he killed them.

But don’t worry, be happy. Less violent socialisms exist in the world—as long as citizens willingly give up their independence.

For example, you could opt for Tony Blair’s vision. Tony is an accused war criminal (Iraq/2003, between 100,000 and million dead), but on the bright side, he didn’t massacre huge numbers of his own people. In 1983, Tony stated:

“I am a Socialist not through reading a textbook that has caught my intellectual fancy, nor through unthinking tradition, but because I believe that, at its best, Socialism corresponds most closely to an existence that is both rational and moral. It stands for co-operation, not confrontation; for fellowship, not fear. It stands for equality, not because it wants people to be the same but because only through equality in our economic circumstances can our individuality develop properly.”

I’ll let you try to translate that generalized gibberish. Take the words “rational,” “moral,” “co-operation,” “fellowship,” “equality in our economic circumstances,” and run them to ground. Attempt to apply them to actual life. Determine what actual policies and regulations would flow from them.

Tony is one of the deans of the Academy of Great Generalities. He knows how to shovel it on wide and deep. His one skill is appearing earnest and sincere.

He shares that attribute with many of his socialist colleagues. They’ve learned their tricks at the feet of mentors, and you can trace the line all the way back to Plato.

“We’re not Stalin, we’re not Mao. Honest. We want to do good. Help us help you. We’re all in this together. There’s a bright day ahead. Just let us do our work.”

Or as Bill Clinton famously put it, “I feel your pain.”

No one heard him say, under his breath, “Of course, I pay no attention to feelings.”

    Social so-called security fits in nicely into this concept of socialism. Try living on social security benefits.

    Very difficult indeed for many!

    David Rockefeller declared that Chairman Mao’s ideology (Communism) greatly benefited China. Other more important factors include our turning on Chang Kai Shek and sending armaments to him for quick victory to Mao instead. Add to that, shipping our industrial base to China to lower labor costs and remove regulations in manufacturing methods. George H. W. Bush, Ambassador to China and the United Nations and President of the United States, Henry Kissinger, Secretary of State, and Richard Nixon, brought from California to New York by the Rockefellers to kick around again, this time as President of the United States, were the forces that produced our financial indebtedness of twenty trillion dollars and possible destruction of the United States through another World War.

    Considering our current state, one cannot avoid the perverse concept of AI ultimately controlling all life of the planet. This leads one to ask the unanswerable question…

    • Terri says:

      Middleway,here is an article that talks about what is going on in the AI surveillance department. It is astounding.

      Socialism is one step away from the AI takeover and being hooked up like in the Matrix.

    • Michael Burns says:

      With the UDC (Utah Data Center) executing petaflop computations. That’s 10 to the fifteenth floating point operations per second. Capable of storage of data in the 3 -12 exabytes and much higher, it brags at processing the complete communication of North America in a single day…this 1.5 million sq ft machine is by 2013 standards of computing. It is now four years later….

      “The data center is alleged to be able to process “all forms of communication, including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls, and Internet searches, as well as all types of personal data trails—parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases, and other digital ‘pocket litter’.” – Wikipedia

      Professing it’s data crunching abilities are a diversion to the truth of this machine. It dominates everything. Facebook, Google and all the rest, are really only stations in a network controlled by this device. And some odd things have been happening.

      Facebook had to shut down what it called a AI program, because it invented a language of its own. And that scared the powers that be..

      The UDC computer is believed to be new technology, not available to the public. If this is true, then they are within a hair breath of creating some creeping version of machine sentience; wherein sentience knows it exists. But that is far from consciousness. Which is another thing altogether, I don’t believe a machines can be conscious. Can they hold a consciousness, I don’t think so. It can know it exists, and there fore protect itself. What is scary is that it gains dominace of the Internet, and creates a program capable of utilizing that great power of world data.

    Do you know Delamer Duverus? He wrote this over 30 years ago.

    “We are fighting a defensive war against the Oligarchists, and our war must be fought against deception, lies, confusion, fraud, and division of the people, because, these are the weapons by which the Platoists expect to take over our nation, and our people. This is the war we are fighting, and it is the strangest war that has ever been fought in the history of the Earth. It is a one-sided war in which we can only win that which is already ours, but if we lose this war, we will not only lose everything, we will have financed the enemy who conquered us.”

    Too bad nobody was listening back then. This is why they killed him. He knew them.

  7. There is NO difference between communism, fascism, marxism, nazism, progressivism or socialism, they are all rebranded FEUDALISM. Elitists found and funded Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mussolini, Hitler, Mao and more. Elitists direct the feuds between these concocted factions as Street theater to increase police state power and eventually war.

      “There is NO difference between communism, fascism, marxism, nazism, progressivism or socialism, they are all rebranded FEUDALISM.”

      Of course there is, don’t be ridiculous. there is not enough room here to banter with that argument.

    You know, I can’t believe that people can be so stupid and blind. Jon calls it Generalism and that is as good a word as any. But the essence is that people love tokenism and generalisms because you do not have to think hard when you choose those. Take it at surface value and accept it. Besides, no one in power would be that bad or do anything really harmful. That’s just silly talk.

    Yet, the systematic global engineering of the many harmful practices and malevolent medical practices do not impress most people. They took the trust pill their parents gave them. It never dawns on them, the many tragic wicked genocides that have taken place in just the 20th century alone. And you go back in history or in the present, where many millions die by ways that could be easily avoided if we did not have psychopaths in power.

    Caring and sharing! What could be better, huh? Well, let me put is this way. In WWI and WWII, men on both sides shared misery, hate, and bullets and death. So not all caring and sharing is good.

    Now how about this! The government takes our money in the form of taxes, often placing many od us in hardship in doing so, yet corporations pay little to nothing by comparison. In fact, one of the most honest people in history told us the truth. Leona Helmsley told us that on the little people paid taxes. She was honest to a fault, But those at the top did not appreciate he doing that so they sent her to prison for a while to give her time to think about her sins.

    Did we thank her? Oh, hell no. We threw rocks at her for telling us the truth. Ungrateful is what we were. We should have spread her message everywhere. I would love nothing more than to be called the N word. Why? Because its the truth. If I am to be treated poorly as a slave, then I want to be called that. Don’t whisper sweet nothings in my ears and then stick a knife in my back and screw in too many ways to recall them all.

    So, the government takes our money and then give it back to us to help us with our children’s expenses. And they remind us that they are investors in our kids. What? They give me back my money and tell me I should be grateful for my money. Maybe I’ll try that at Xmas time. “Kids, look at all the money I spent on you thru our wonderful benevolent government who keeps us alive and who we could not live without. so no present this time, because you got plenty from Satan government. You should be grateful.” Warning! Do not try this at home. Your kids will kill you in your sleep. Perhaps they smarter than you in that respect.

    Here is the puzzle for me. Why do we find the governments so trustworthy and benevolent? Well, here is why I ponder this in a state of perplexity. You don’t have to take this as preaching. For a moment, I only bring this up as a mere man suggesting something, even though I have a far higher regard than that, normally. Jesus spoke of a future time, when men’s hearts would be evil and be up to nothing but wickedness and deceit that would culminate in a destruction on a scale never seen or heard of before.

    What the he11 gave him an idea like that? and he said that people would take no note of the preparations going on and that the day of our demise would overtake us like thieves in the night you were not expecting.

    The reason I find that so spooky is that, indeed. most do not see anything wrong going on. Vaccines, GMOs, contrails, pollution, medical fraud, poison drugs that are said to heal, build of repeatedly of arms and weapons, Growing censorship and so much more. The pattern is quite clear, even to someone who lived 2000 years ago and told us the formula. The dumbing down of schools. Simplistic stupid TV programming. Let me put is this way. Which of the following was the the worst show ever? Gilligan’s Island? Lavern and Shirley, Oh, I can’t go on anymore. I’m getting sick to my stomach. I could list many programs, but then I would be no better than Uncle Joe or Mao.

    How did this Jesus character put this all together. I’ll take a stab at it. He knew what Rome was like. He new of empires that came before. He saw a repeating pattern. He recognized that most people did not question anything. What he saw then is what any of us have seen if we took an inquiring review of things around us. But none of us thru time was able to predict what he did, and did so accurately. Why? Cause most do not question anything, ever.

    What is going on now is outrageous. How outrageous is it? I think readers here know full well, how outrageous our world is.

    Jon mentioned the importance of parenting and families the other day. This is where the battle is lost most of the time. We don’t know how to live life or teach it to our children. Their instinctive trust makes our job easy, but we don’t know how to use it right. And we just let them grow like weeds and let others program and teach them. End result? The end!

    We came so far in history and yet, we have end up nowhere. We are lost and failing.

    Socialism cannot be made to work. That’s why it is in the process of collapsing. The globalist dreamers and schemers are hitting the wall of reality. Endless streams of debt money cannot save them when it’s cause of collapse. It is what chemotherapy is to cancer. Second, they can’t stop the rise of economic power in the east led by the China/Russia/Iran axis. Third, is cryptocurrencies.

    The central banking monopoly on money is in process of being displaced by cryptocurrencies. It’s a peer-to-peer system in which a keycode is assigned to every transaction. The user identifying key is physically kept by the user; it is not in the system. It can’t be hacked. It can’t be seen at border crossings. It’s taxable only when converted to fiat.

    It’s designed for the worldwide internet. Anybody with a cell phone can use it. Cryptocurrencies don’t compete; they are indexed to each other. Their purchasing power is dependent on their free market value. This is a youth movement that the powers can’t shut down, though they’ll try with scare tactics.

    I can’t do the subject justice in this post. “The Internet of Money” by Andreas Antonopolous explains why I am so excited by this. The author is a popular spokesman. A native of Greece, he explains how he saved the family fortune when the banking system collapsed.

      Crypto-curriences (CC) are the worst of Ideas. Solely dependent on the internet, digital currency that can divide into even smaller, and smaller, nth denominations.  Anyone can create a cryptocurrency. But who will survive as the mad race to create even more varieties of these currencies end-falls to the monopoly of whom ever controls the Internet and creates laws opposing other forms cryptocurrency. And that time is nearing and has been ever-present.

      CC is not secure, it far too easy to steal or to counterfeit or control…except if it is the main controllers.

      The fallacy exists that encryption algorithm is the basis reality of all Cryptocurrency. It is unstoppable, it is unbreakable, so therefore secure. Well, not so…

      During the second world war, the enigma encyphala-machine, a form of cypher was created by the Nazi to encode secrets and messages to military and intelligence personal working against the allies. It was believed it was unbreakable, until the right kind of knowledge was applied. Even though one had the machine, it did not mean they would be safe in their communications. Time broke down what at once was considered unbreakable.

      Why would a CC be safe in a world were the NSA know so much about each and every individual, and are gaining power to intercept every piece of communication on planet earth. Your phone, your tablet, your e-mails. Your conversations even within your own home through the Internet of things. Are sent back to central control. CC are not immune to this…

      Gangs of hackers work tirelessly to find ways. They always find ways. They know as most don’t, that there are always back doors built into software, primarily in algorithmic software, it cant’ be allowed to run it own course. Logic reasoning software can not be allowed to run autonomously. It can get out of control. Logic, long ago prefered an off switch. A non physical currency is the easiest currency to steal. One steals the device, or the user is convinced to give up his code. Or exact imitations are created.

      From where I stand this is exactly the world that the UN’s Agenda 2030 is moving us towards…a cryptocurrency world were the exact amounts of resources; food, shelter, energy, health care etc will be alloted and digitized and currencied. World currencies, are cryptocurriencies. I use my ATM card 95% of the time, most payment systems are made online. Cash never really passes hands. Except in small gray or black market situations. There are now stores that will not except cash.

      Currencies across the planet are unifying in a sense with the computer calculating exchanges. Currencies across the world are made cheaply to take the sense of value away from the object. And that is purposeful. Now dollar bills in Canada are made from plastic, the cheapest of materials.

      When I was a young man, Canadian quarters, dimes were made from silver. Nickels were actually nickel and the penny was made of copper.Changes have been ephemeral, that world has died and been replaced with, tokens…

      Cryptocurrency is the currency of choice in a Socialist world, a new world, ordered for all; a redistribution of wealth is anticipated…

      Cryptocurrency is the sole and honored currency of Socialism.

      CC is the state of perfecting usury to a greater efficiency of the digit. CC will eliminate or suppress greatly petty crime, but will inspire greater criminality. It will improve taxation so no one escapes tax. Were ya going to hide all that wealth? CC enables only those with the greatest of Internet power to excel.

      Cryptocurrency is subservient and endangered to specific hardware and software of the day. But it has no control or foresight of advancing future software.  Malware can make life difficult if not impossible for CC users. It does not need to necessarily to steal it, which is a crime; it might simply make it difficult to find it or utilize it, and that is not a crime as yet. Correct me if I am wrong. There is the problem of loss of media. Actually losing the physical computer. The chances of losing the currency is much greater than fiat currencies. Cryptocurrency cannot be insured as it is not a physical object.

      CC does not abide by current banking laws.

      CC relies on nothing to back its value; in essence it is really only a pyramid scheme, which eventually would top out. Accumulating wealth is extremely difficult for CC users. And the system is primed and to kill it, if they cannot ultimately control or tax it.

      The dollar has gone through many changes; a promissory; a silver backed currency; a gold backed currency; a currency based on oil; and now its final transition to a cryptocurrency. 

      Simply because currencies like BitCoin have anticipated the end of money does not make them permanent.

      Crypto currency is pro globalism and globalism is a form of socialism.

      You desire to fight the Fiat dollar, Fiat currencies? Create local currencies, actually objects with a value base. Every state should have its own physical currency, every town, village and hamlet should have its own physical currency. For that matter every individual should have their own currency. All communities should create their own currency.

  10. I disagree with you on one point here, Jon.

    No it HASN’T always been the same. In fact it was only when true Rosicrucian standards were abominated after the death of Gnosticism that Roman “vision” hybridised into current Pharisee backed Zionist dominance.

    Babylonian systems were very different to today’s. They [at least] attempted to run the Atlantis model.

    Of course the reptiles were around to influence the Aztecs so that society doesn’t bear thinking about. The “Mayans” (FYI] would be classed as “extra-terrestrials” by our sciences (sic).
