Putting words to the core problem: we're witnessing a Marxist insurrection in the West

The first step to solving a problem is acknowledging it. You cannot fix that which you do not see, do not name, or do not have words for.

I'm convinced that now, less than 2 months before the next US election, we are seeing a full-spectrum unrestricted assault against Western Civilization and the USA (and DJT as its current non-establishment President) by a Marxism-based philosophical movement.

I also see more and more people calling it out as such.

Is this as helpful as I hope?

Should this "frame" or lens be that which we use to take the most effective actions - individually and collectively - to live in the world and maintain it as the one which is most consistent with our values of reason, individual rights, justice, productiveness, and happiness?

    I probably sound like a broken record on this book...but, this reminds me of the book

    https://www.amazon.com/Stones-Cry-Out...

    See the discription - "...and important addition to a thin historical record." And, that's the point. This book will tear the heart out of anybody who cares for humanity. Pol Pot happened when I was a kid but, probably due to Vietnam fatigue or blatant collectivist infiltration in the American media, we weren't really hearing about it. This book, written in the way it was, is huge. Or, should I say, "Uge!"

      Thanks for that book recommendation. I've heard of it, never read it. More education for our people - of the reality of collectivist horrors - would be a very helpful thing.

        Should be mandatory reading in every high school. Many of the worst atrocities are carried out by men saying things like, "You're doing this for the betterment of your fellow countrymen..." You can see examples of that in this book, through the eyes of a child. Mind-blowing read for this Objectivist.

        We should talk rockets sometime. I used to work in the aerospace industry - engineer. I live near a large rocket motor manufacturer that's now just about a rattlesnake-infested ghost town.

    "I also see more and more people calling it out as such." Yes, but more people in leadership need to do so. I've heard Trump refer to BLM and ANTIFA thugs as anarchists and rioters, but I don't recall the name Marxist being used. Start calling these left wing Democrats Neo Communists and Marxists right up front and the dialog will change dramatically.

    These Leftist (Communist) idiots should be wary of what they wish for! They might get it!

      Yes, as I say of so many entertainer and other self important elites: "When your socialist/communist dream comes true may all your wealth be confiscated and spread around for the greater good and may the keys to you mansions and fancy cars be handed over to share as needed. After all, you didn't make that."

    Accurately recognizing any problem for what it really is for really real is always the important first step.
    BLM leaders (of destructive bullying, thieving and murdering criminals) openly admitting they are "trained Marxists" erases the racist cops (a lot of them black) being mean to black people narrative.
