Back in the U.S.S.R.

Lennon and McCartney of the Beatles wrote that song during the “Cold War” when the key political players at the time were the Soviet Union and all of the Western World — primarily the U.S. I remember when the song came out how horrible I thought it was to glorify a government and country steeped in Communism with its citizens devastated by the heavy weight of totalitarianism. Of course I missed the point of the song: the lyrics had nothing to do with Communism! In fact, they simply tell a story of the writer re-uniting with a girl — a Soviet girl:

“Oh, flew in from Miami Beach B.O.A.C.
Didn’t get to bed last night
On the way the paper bag was on my knee
Man I had a dreadful flight
I’m back in the U.S.S.R.
You don’t know how lucky you are boy
Back in the U.S.S.R. (Yeah)

Been away so long I hardly knew the place
Gee it’s good to be back home
Leave it till tomorrow to unpack my case
Honey disconnect the phone
I’m back in the U.S.S.R.
You don’t know how lucky you are boy
Back in the U.S.
Back in the U.S.
Back in the U.S.S.R.

Well the Ukraine girls really knock me out
They leave the West behind
And Moscow girls make me sing and shout
That Georgia’s always on my mind

Oh, show me around your snow-peaked mountains way down south
Take me to your daddy’s farm
Let me hear your balalaika’s ringing out
Come and keep your comrade warm
I’m back in the U.S.S.R.
Hey you don’t know how lucky you are boys
Back in the U.S.S.R.”

(I left some of the “repeated” phrases out for  brevity)

Little did two of the greatest songwriters in history know there was prophesy in their lyrics. How so? Without even knowing what– other than meeting that girlfriend was at stake — they were going “Back to the U.S.S.R.” The prophetic message in the song is that it seems today that we are headed back to the U.S.S.R., and not to see an old girlfriend.

In that famous debate during the 2012 Presidential election, the debate moderator asked each candidate what the greatest threat to the U.S. was. Mitt Romney said it was Russia. The famous debate line came from Barack Obama when he said regarding Romney’s answer, “Governor Romney, the 70’s want their foreign policy back.” It was a humiliating comeback and stuck in the minds of many. The only truthful part of that Q & A was Romney’s answer naming Russia as America’s greatest threat. It was true then and has been confirmed multiple times in the past year or so. And the confirmation I am referring to is not the apparently bogus claims by many that President Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to help defeat Hillary Clinton.  It has been revealed that there were actually Russian devices installed on U.S. voting machines to purposely change votes. The Obama Administration knew of this and kept it hidden since 2010. But it hasn’t stopped there.

Karl Marx was the father of totalitarianism in Russia that later was termed “Communism.” Those in the Free World scoffed at Communism and the Communist State, but there had to be some good reasons for it after being established that Russia eventually became the second strongest country on Earth. It happened because the People not only allowed it, the majority of people encouraged it. Let’s quickly look at some of Marx’s fundamentals:

The ten tenets of Marxism/Communism after the Foundation is set. (The foundation is total Government control)

  • Central banking system (the U.S. has a central banking system)
  • Government controlled education (though states operate public education systems day-t0-day, the federal government sets all the fundamental rules)
  • Government controlled labor  (the U.S. Government through the NLRB — National Labor Relations Board — sets all the rules for starting and operating labor unions and oversees all labor policies for every employer in the U.S.)
  • Government ownership of transportation and communication vehicles (transportation is private though heavily regulated by the federal government. All broadcast frequencies are controlled by the FCC — Federal Communications Commission — whose board members are all political appointees. Broadcast operations rules and guidelines are devised, implemented, and enforced by the FCC and have become extremely restrictive in every way)
  • Government ownership of agricultural means and factories (Government now controls agriculture by controlling agricultural land ownership and regulating crop rotation and water rights. The EPA cripples both agriculture and manufacturing with severely restrictive environmental regulations that stifles growth and costs companies 20%-30% of revenue in fines and operational regulations)
  • Total abolition of private property (private property rights are some of the few individual rights left, however through eminent domain, the Feds can seize any property deemed necessary to the public good)
  • Property rights confiscation (See above)
  • Heavy income tax on everyone (U.S. corporate income taxes are in the top 3 highest in the World. Those taxes through goods and services pricing by those corporations trickle into the marketplace and come from Americans’ pockets)
  • Elimination of rights of inheritance (almost 50% of the value of estates are confiscated now by the Government when we die through the federal “Death Tax”)
  • Regional planning (Major pushes exist for no immigration laws, no borders, and determining all immigrants have freedom to come to the U.S. with no restrictions)

See any similarities to 2017?

But the most egregious similarity to Marxism we are watching play out is the concerted efforts by the Left to regulate and control and in many cases do away with free speech. No doubt many in the Democrat Party and Leftist groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter would dearly love to see the First Amendment severely abridged if not totally repealed. How else can they explain their all out war against those with opposing viewpoints who try to speak in public settings? Antifa claims to be “anti-fascist.” If they really were anti-fascist, they would use their power and efforts to assure those conservatives who they block from speaking on college campuses get to speak. Truly, Antifa is a “pre-Marxist” anti-free speech group lying to those who will listen.

Summary

I am NOT a conspiracy theorist. But if it quacks and waddles it is almost always a duck. What we are seeing today from the Left parallels much of the Karl Marx tenets of Communism and also parallels what our parents and grand parents saw in Europe in the rollouts of fascism, Naziism, and Communism. Hitler and Stalin were Marxist students and used those same tenets to establish their versions of Communism. Leftists are praying that Millenials in the U.S. that have been inundated by teachers and professors with the “supposed” goodness of totalitarianism will ignore the necessity of research and study of what Marxism and Communism did to the European people and how it was created. An entire generation has turned from the tenets of American democracy that permeated our country for two centuries. Simply because their parents believed in it and lived happily in it caused them to turn away and begin to listen to teachers and believe what they hear without question. It is happening everywhere in the U.S. everyday.

What we must do is cry for Free Speech to be salvaged. The reason Antifa, BLM, and other Socialist groups are so desperate to keep conservatives from speaking is they know if Millenials listen and compare messages, they will lose support as conservatism will do what it does: empower people with the Truth.

While we do that, please understand we WANT groups like the KKK, White Supremacists, and other Right Wing groups to have their voices and be allowed to speak their minds. Why would I say that? History proves that the more they speak and are heard by Americans, their numbers decline and support and supporters fade away. When the truth is heard, explained, and discussed, it always wins. An example is there at one time were an estimated 20 million KKK adherents in the U.S. Today that number is tagged at 8,000! “The Truth wll Out.”

It starts today in grammar school. One school system in Georgia has an elementary history book titled “The Peoples History,” referring to the history of the U.S.S.R. I will bet you 80% of the parents of those students have no idea about that and its importance. The other 20% know what it is, are apathetic about it and just roll with the punches.

We better wake up, or we’re gonna be going “Back to the U.S.S.R.” really soon.
