“When you go to war against your enemies and see horses and chariots and an army greater than yours, do not be afraid of them, because the LORD your God, who brought you up out of Egypt, will be with you”.Deuteronomy 20:1
We are all appalled that Russia has ruthlessly invaded the sovereign country of Ukraine. Our prayers go out for peace and safety of the Ukrainian people.
This isn’t the first time Russia has brutalized Ukraine. In 1932 the Marxist - Communist Soviet Union lead by Joseph Stalin had a plan for Ukraine. Stalin was opposed to the independently owned small farms of Ukraine. His plan was to replace the free market farms with state-run collective farms. When the peasant farmers couldn’t meet the state quotas, Stalin confiscated the land and all the food. The result was 3.9 million Ukrainians were deliberately starved to death between the years 1932-1933. In the Ukrainian, this deadly famine is known by the word “Holodomor”, meaning intentional death by starvation.
During Stalin’s reign, from 1922-1952, some 20 million Russians were murdered to keep communist control. Stalin was outdone by his Chinese Communist Party counterpart, Mao Zedong, who with his “Great Leap Forward”, murdered up to 45 million Chinese between 1958 and 1962, many by starvation. It is estimated that during the last century, over 100 million people have been murdered by communist regimes. Is Vladimir Putin a man of the same cloth?
In 1848 when Karl Marx wrote the Communist Manifesto, his dream was for the world to be transform from free market capitalism to state controlled communism. Most Communists governments have come into power by force. Communists today gain power little by little by infiltrating domains of society like, educational institutions, the media, and political parties. The term “Progressive” is a philosophy that moves society in that direction by striving for “equity” and social programs controlled by the centralized state.
The Frankfurt School, a Marxist think tank operated in Germany between 1923-1933. Being disillusioned by the death toll of Marxists revolutions, they concluded that if you create enough fear and chaos, the people would beg the government to fix the problem. They can then seize state control without firing a shot. In 1933, Hitler threw the Frankfurt School out of Germany. They relocated to Columbia University in the USA.
The Covid-19 pandemic has been the perfect storm for creating the type of fear and chaos for governments to gain central control. Government at all levels, local school boards, city, county, state and especially the federal government have taken away our liberty in the name of public good for the masses. If the phrase “follow the science” doesn’t scare you, it should. Marxism replaces God with science. The freedom of religion is a God given right, not a religious exemption granted by the government. When scientific opinion is labeled “misinformation” and canceled from the media , freedom of speech has been taken away.
Do we in the United States of America have the will to fight for freedom as the Ukrainians’? Before we fight communist countries on the battle field, we must win the battle against Marxist ideology in America at the ballot box.
