Socialism Exposed Throughout History - 8-22-22 1

Last week, 4Tucson hosted a Zoom class, Socialism Exposed Throughout History. We learned from William Federer the ideology of socialism, from Plato to modern times. The following are some of the notes from his class:

In 1934, Oxford anthropologist J. D. Unwin’s Sex and Culture studied 80 civilizations over 5000 years, including Athens, and found out that sexual promiscuity always precedes the destruction of a civilization.

He breaks the civilizations into a cycle of four:

  • First, there is a period of pain and poverty. They go through struggle and famine, like Israel did      when they came out of Egypt and slavery
  • Second, they work hard to become productive, protective, and patriotic..    
  • When all of the country does this, it becomes prosperous and expansionistic.
  • They then want to enjoy their prosperity. People get pleasure focused and become promiscuous  and indulgent. They are eventually weakened and conquered by the next rising civilization.

Democracy without people having morals and virtue ends in lawlessness and chaos, out of which a tyrant usurps power. If you give people a choice of giving up their life or giving up their virtue, they’ll always give up their virtue to save their lives. Plato said if someone were born truly virtuous, the world would crucify him. This is what he wrote: “If a truly just man lived, let him die as he lived. I might add that the just man will be scourged, racked, bound, and will at last be crucified. He wrote that in 380 BC.

Socialism is a structured society of a ruling class and a ruled class. The ruling class is above the law, politically connected, supported by the commoners. They can do things nobody else can, and they control everybody. The ruled class owns no property, is controlled, and has no families. The government decides who may have children and can take children away from their families to indoctrinate them with noble lies. Kids are socialized in government schools to give up their parents’ values and learn how to obey and serve the ruling class.

Plato said that when true philosopher kings are born in a state, they will set in order their own city, take possession of the children who will be unaffected by the habits of their parents and train them in their own habits and laws. The children are taught lies—one single and grand noble lie to be believed by everybody.

William Federer’s lecture on socialism went on for over an hour. It was truly enlightening to learn that the idea of a utopian society is not new. Also true is that every time it’s been tried, it has failed - from the social experiment of the Mayflower Pilgrims to Marxist Communist revolutions that have murdered over 100 million people in this last century. Today, the so called “Democratic Socialists”, are wreaking havoc in our government. Their policies are leading our nation to disaster.

Solomon told us in Ecclesiastes 1:9 “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun”.

This November we will have a choice: To follow failed policies that have driven nations into poverty and servitude, or the principles of freedom, limited government and individual responsibility our founding fathers enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. We know that if we follow God’s principles and vote for people that embrace our values, we will live tranquil, peaceful, prosperous lives.
