“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas

Pride blinds the foolish

You know things are bad when the Russians are lecturing us on free markets and pointing at and mocking our "descent in Marxism" at the hands of The One. Seriously, if you read nothing else this weekend, read this short op-ed from the English version of Pravda. Here's an excerpt of Stanislav Mishin's assessment of the US....

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their "right" to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our "democracy". Pride blinds the foolish.

Sadly, he is spot on the money! The American, Marxist welfare state has been deviously advanced by insidious politicians in both parties. Meanwhile, we Americans pretend to hold the high moral ground when it comes to economic and social freedoms but, we are dangerously close to becoming merely serfs, toiling in our crap jobs to support with our taxes the behemoth, voracious, imperial State. How humiliatingly ironic to be lectured by a Russian about free markets, government control of the means of production, and worst of all, our delusional willingness to embrace our enslavement to the State while chirping about how free we are.
