The progressive/Marxist/socialist/communist/totalitarian state has one enemy: Freedom.
Freedom to speak without repercussions.
Freedom to worship or not worship.
Freedom to fly a flag.
Freedom to run a business based on our beliefs.
Freedom to keep what we have rightfully earned are the bedrock of our country.
Uprooting these basic liberties makes total control possible for the lords of the earth and they will go to any lengths to achieve this end goal.
In 1978 William Barrett described the shape of the American future. Barrett, a preeminent philosopher, understood America was losing ground to this “perverse animal” known as Marxism. Barrett explained how the Marxists are threatened by an individual’s exercise of his own free will.
“A short while back The New York Times reported about a small group of Muscovites who had attempted to exhibit their paintings oneSunday on a vacant lot in the outskirts of Moscow. Bulldozers promptly appeared, and those aspiring artists were hustled off the scene. This episode would be amusing if it were not also so gruesome. Did a regime controlling so many troops and guns feel threatened by this little handful of Sunday painters? Was the Kremlin about to totter because of those few pathetic efforts at self-expression? Freedom must indeed be indivisible if the merest little groping toward it, and even in a sphere where politics is not an issue, must be stamped out like a germ that might start a raging epidemic.” (P 357. The Illusion of Technique)
