“Due to the high volume of mail that we receive from young people who are new to Satanism, we have put together some information to help answer your specific questions and concerns.” Quote from Church of Satan website.
Sounds like you are right. Of course the book Revelation in the bible predicts a great falling away of the church as the end time approaches.
Or mention that Stain murdered more than 69,000,000 people?
Or that Mao Tse-tung murdered more than 74,000,000 people?
Or that the Imperial Japanese murdered more than 25,000,000 people?
Or that the German NAZIs murdered more than 25,000,000 people?
Or are they just jealous and like the American Weathermen want to murder more than 25,000,000 Americans?
Stain= Stalin opps
I’d also say they’re not Americans. They have no idea what it means to be one.
Marx sat a London library pouring over Adam Smith to learn all he could in order to stab at the heart of this very needed and natural human function.
The miseducated and the stupid have no idea how life would be without American capitalism.
Neither, just lazy aholes.
“Are Americans Who Admire Socialism and Communism Miseducated or Stupid?”
How about evil?
I agree. Mis-educated and stupid aren’t mutually exclusive. Actually, they often go together.
The free side (of the Berlin Wall) was messy and loaded with multiple layers of graffiti while the dictatorial communist side was pristine clean concrete.
They either scrubbed their panels of the communist side or were picky about avoiding the panels with large blood stains ...
I agree. The sooner more realize this, the sooner it can get done.
Stupid people are easily indoctrinated, and we have put education into the hands of trade union thugs. Saving future generations from the hell of communism would seem like a worthwhile goal of education, but “curriculum development specialists” (example: Brenda Snipes) don’t see that as a priority.
Pervasive, nefarious conformism selects and self-selects who is “successful”. Both stupid and intelligent people pursue rewards and avoid punishment. The media culture and cult of celebrity defines what is “cool”. Only radical leftists need apply. Many jobs require spewing the PC claptrap. Those who do get ahead, those who don’t get dropped. Academia, the FBI, CIA, and most of the gov’t became a leftist lake gradually because leftists hire and promote their compadres, and blackball non-leftists.
I think both.
It is a mixture of both, but rather than say “stupid” I would say ignorant. “Stupidity” implies low intelligence, while extreme ignorance means extremely lacking in knowledge.
There two main ways knowledge is acquired; formally as through formal education and life experience, which includes not just what we do but in what ways we become “informed” beyond our own experience, and that includes what we call “the media”.
So there are also two kinds of “miseducation” - one is from academia directly and the other comes from all the forms of the media.
Very intelligent persons can be very ignorant. It is not a result of mental defect such as very low intelligence - capability for logic and reasoning, so they are not stupid. Though that is not to say SOME of the Liberal/Progressive/Left are just plain stupid. My only point is I would not lump all who are Liberal/Progressive/Left into the “stupid” category.
In some sense with many Liberals/Progressives/Leftists it is a self-imposed ignorance - as if either sometime during formal schooling, or once they Left formal schooling the impetus for self-education ended, and “knowledge” became only what was delivered to them as predetermined “expert knowledge”. Even in many intelligent Liberals/Progressives/Leftists the ability for critical thinking hit a mute button, and was replaced by a “record” button convinced to just absord and memorize what they were told. Let me call it atrophied intelligence. David Horowitz is a former Leftists who realized he had once hit the mute button, until his intellectual honesty rose up and he began again to critically look at where his own ideas had come from, and had taken him.
You can see it in “well spoken” persons who are of the Liberal/Progressive/Left. The language craft of good intelligence is still there but the material is a constant recycling of Liberal/Left shiboliths.
One of the basic principles of communism was that it would first start in the worlds most advanced country.
That is a fact.
If one of the most basic principles of communism was proven wrong, AT THE START, why would anyone believe anything else about it?
Hillary Flammond: My uncle was born in America.
Nick Rivers: Oh, really?
Hillary Flammond: But he was one of the lucky ones. He managed to escape in a balloon during the Jimmy Carter presidency.
I am going to guess a minimum of 99% of those who saw the headline had exactly the same initial response.
Kudo's to have the best and most succinct response.
Or, "If only Trotsky replaced Lenin, instead of Stalin."
Boomers and “Greatest Generation” larded their Millennial children and grandchildren with mountains of debt and now scratch their heads in puzzlement over why they’re embracing socialism.
Very few escapees got close enough to bleed on the wall
