»#YuriBezmenov may well go down in history as a #saint by the #survivors of the generations to come.

His statements about the global “#communist agenda” offers an opportunity for students of #history, #philosophy and #economics - world wide - to take note of #reality and to
.. reflect on the identity of their intellectual enemy, the dynamics of #capitalism in economics, and the role of #violence in politics.

Firstly, what is the “western identity”? From my understanding .. the #western identity has been shaped primarily by what it has resisted:
namely monarchic #despotism, authoritative #collectivism, and the infringement on the sovereignty of the #individual. You can even say that, to an extent, #Christianity itself followed from an already existing identity (i.e. the #Socratic divination of the individual).


What is “capitalism”? From my understanding it means the #decentralization of #economic decision making. The #capital can be monetary, labor, machines, or the idealism of others. [cf. 'Humankapital' LG,I] As an economic system[,] capitalism decentralizes economic
.. decision making.

#Socialism is the #centralization of economic decision making. It is also free from moral restrictions and espouses no concern nor protection for the #individual. THE INDIVIDUAL IS EXPENDABLE [my emphasis] - in fact, must be expended for the cause.
.. #Marxist socialism leverages the CAPITAL OF HURT FEELINGS, imagined sufferings, and INFERRED VICTIMHOOD to create societal upheaval against the “status quo.” [my ephasis] The upheaval culminates in orgies of episodic #violence that eventually get the Party into power.
.. When the #Party achieves power, they form the new status quo - which oftentimes is much WORSE for the “#UsefulIdiots” than when they first started. The Party #elites promptly purge these useful idiots. I will explain in another post why purging the useful idiots
.. is absolutely necessary to maintain the revolution itself. This is textbook execution.


#Trotsky, #Lenin and the #Bolshevik leadership have said it clearly that their movement was founded on brute force and #violence. Violence is a tool for political change, and
.. socialists are eager to exact violence on others from a safe distance [...]

Which brings us to how Marxist #socialism has infected the #West itself.
Ideological #subversion. Schools have been pumping out generations of students that see themselves as “#GlobalCitizens”.
..People have been #divided along every plane imaginable, with new #divisions sprouting daily. It is now evil to affirm a #Western identity.
“Politically (in) Correctness.” Certain topics cannot be approached in public - slowly, and daily, it is the case online as well.
And we know “those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable” - JFK.

I can keep writing on this subject forever, but I think I will stop shortly. For now, the only respite seems to be for the individual - to go his own way.

..Trying to conform to the ever-shrinking cookie-cutter shapes of the #identities no doubt leads to personal and private #suffering. And suffering is the best of teachers."

The above text was published by someone identifying themselves as "Edward Longshanks,
..B. Sc. #Biochemistry& #ComputerScience (2010)," at…, where it says that the text was "Updated Dec 19, 2018"

Remark. The #YouTube-video that apparently was at the beginning of the above quora-thread has since been removed: is gone.
