Is Socialism An Acceptable Alternative to Capitalism?

I was an indoctrinated Communist from an early age until the age of 42.
I was a trade journalist working for a major US publisher.
















At various times I've been told by individuals whom I know and love that today's Socialism is an acceptable alternative to Capitalism. I've done my best to explain to this individual(s) that today's Socialism is not any different than yesterday's Communism. If you think Communism died in the 1980's at the hands of President Ronald Reagan, just look at China today where Communism is alive and (sadly) well.

It was in 1957, at the age of 7, that I became aware of politics. I also listened to the news, often hearing about French soldiers in Vietnam, much as we did in the latter part of the 1960's. About the same year I recall listening to the news where the Congress assigned the task of investigation of "the Foundations" by Norman Dodd. His task was to investigate alleged claims that these Foundations were involved in Unamerican activities.

In 1958, at the age of 8, I began listening to shortwave radio, specifically to Radio Moscow and  Radio Havana Cuba. The means by which Communism aims to subdue the free world is built on the premise of promises of a Utopia where all citizens are treated equally, where there are no Donald Trumps, no George Soros', no Rockefellers. But what those of us who have fallen victim to the propaganda do not understand is that it's the rich Elite that funded the creation of Communism back in the 1800's!  Yes, the very people that the Communists are supposedly working to eliminate! At the end of this commentary I'll explain why I left this ideology in the dust in 1992. 

In the 1990's, I joined the John Birch Society where I learned a simple truth that NO ONE told us about in history classes in junior high (middle school) or high school, and that was "The advent of Communism was fueled by $21M provided to Vladimir Lenin while passing through our nation in the late 1800's." It was that backing that enabled the creation of Communism in 1917 by the Bolsheviks.

For now,  please watch this video because, although it's got some age on it, it will explain how Communists do what they do...

According to the poster of this video: "The cultural subversion of the United States, Europe and the rest of the world. This is the compiled version of all of Bezmenov's lectures I could find." 

He also provides a good bit of additional background information designed to explain why this video is important. I trust the original poster who compiled all these interviews will forgive my repeating his material here. 

This is G. Edward Griffin's shocking video interview, Soviet Subversion of the Free-World Press (1984), where he interviews ex-KGB officer and Soviet defector Yuri Bezmenov who decided to openly reveal KGB's subversive tactics against western society as a whole. Bezmenov explains how Jewish Marxist ideology is destabilizing the economy and purposefully pushing the U.S. into numerous crises so that a "Big Brother" tyranny can be put into place in Washington, how most Americans don't even realize that they are under attack, and that normal parliamentary procedures will not alter the federal government's direction. He then explains how Marxist leaders use informers to make lists of anti-Communist and other politically incorrect people who they want to execute once they - actually a Jewish oligarchy - come to power.
The oligarch's secret lists include "civil rights" activists and idealistically-minded "useful idiot" leftists as well. Bezmenov provides several real world examples of how Marxist leaders even execute and/or imprison each other. Also he explains how American embassy employees were known to betray Soviets attempting to defect, how there existed a "triangle of hate" in the Soviet government, why he realized that Marxism-Leninism was a murderous doctrine, and how the CIA ignored (or didn't care) about Communist subversion. He also mentions that revolutions throughout history are never the result of a majority movement, but of a small dedicated and highly-organized group who seize power, whether for good or bad. Next he explains how the American mass media spread lies about life in the Soviet Union. Bezmenov also explains how the LOOK magazine article falsely claimed that the Russian people were proud of their victory in the Second World War, where in reality the Judeo-Bolshevik-Communist-Marxist government was happy that Hitler had been defeated so that they could remain in power.

Yuri Bezmenov worked as a "journalist" for Novosti Press Agency, which was a disinformation and propaganda agency controlled by the Soviet non-military intelligence agency (commonly known as the KGB). The Soviets called their disinformation work through Novosti "active measures," though Schuman uses the phrase "ideological subversion" to describe the activity of Novosti. Actually, "ideological subversion" was more of a term used by Soviet and Soviet-bloc propaganda to characterize the supposed actions of the West to undermine socialist and Communist ideology within the Soviet Union. In the fifties and sixties, the Soviets and their allies began to use more creative means to mislead and misinform the West and the Third World, creating a cumulative effect that would in the long term be favorable to the Soviet Union. Novosti Press Agency was an overt and legitimate organization that published articles and books mainly for the West.
It was ostensibly independent of the government, but we now know that this is a ridiculous claim. Most people assumed (and observed) that Novosti's work was somewhat propagandist, but until Bezmenov many did not realize the extent to which Novosti worked closely with the KGB to produce disinformation and mislead foreign governments and organizations, to the extent that Novosti's goals were quite simply the KGB's goals. Looking back, many people might think that no one really took Novosti seriously. This is not the case. Western journalists and newspapers treated Novosti as a legitimate source of news and opinion. Papers like The New York Times used Novosti press releases just as they would the press releases of the AP, Reuters, AFP, or Groupe Presse. Novosti publications like the magazine Soviet Life and various books and travelogues were widely available in the United States and throughout the world and treated for the most part as honest, legitimate publications. Many of these publications can be found simply by searching Amazon for "Novosti Press Agency."

In conclusion, I decided to leave the Communist ideology in 1992 simply because of something that presidential hopeful Bill Clinton said. During one of his political speeches, he in essence said the following: 

"If elected, Al Gore and I will eliminate the Constitution because it was a radical experiment that has outlived its time." 

I told my wife that this man is a Communist. When she asked me why, I told her, "Because ONLY a Communist would say something like that." 

Those of you who believe that despite the fact that Socialism hasn't worked anywhere in the world to date that it can and will work this time, understand that every political activist in every nation where Communism has seeped into it's capital eventually were sorry to have  participated in the effort, at least those who managed to somehow survive the usual assassination of all Leftists who worked on behalf of Communism who were not directly connected to the foreign power that was working to subvert that nation. Before it was the former U.S.S.R. but now, it's largely the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
