    Default Socialism: A Lesson From The Dead

    I know some are not fans of Glenn Beck, however, this needs to be spread far and wide.



    Synopsis: In the 1960's, a document was smuggled out of Czechoslovakia and given to the US Senate with a warning. The document was buried and forgotten, until Glenn's team of researchers found it in the archives in DC. The document was stolen from the Soviet archives, smuggled out, and showed how the USSR flipped the country, legally, in 3 years. They flipped the country without firing a shot, and we are seeing the same 5 steps in play today. He ties the same document to current events, and to a few chalkboards he did years ago at Fox. There are some graphic images at the start, and footage from Venezuela. This is a message you ignore at your own peril. 4 of the steps have (theoretically) been completed.

    Oh crap! That thing is 2.5 hours long! I can't watch it. I'm on limited internet. That would eat up damn near a month of Meg's for me. I can only watch long vids after 2am. I'd have to stay up all night...

    I don't suppose you'd be willing to write a readable summary, would you? 🤔

    If you are using Firefox, use Youtube Download and download it to your computer. I saved a copy in case YouTube decides to go full retard and pull it.

    It was a fairly interesting dialog. Beck compared what is happening now in the USA to what happened in Venezuela and in Czechoslovakia. Taken at face value it is frightening in the similarities to the current USA. I was interested enough to watch the first 2 hours.

    George Santayana. Not Churchill, though Churchill has some great quotes of his own.

    Sen. Joe Mc Carthy in the 1950's set off alarm bells about the socialist movement in society and government in his day. One supporting him, but doing so behind the scenes, was none other than the actor John Wayne. I wonder what Wayne thought and knew about the influence Hollywood was having "projecting" socialism, not just the actors but writers, directors and production companies.
    "The Manchurian Candidate" , the 1962 movie starring Frank Sinatra had a character named Sen. John Iselin which I think was loosely based on Mc Carthy, which in his acting also was accusing of a vast socialist/communist influence but in government.
    Both Mc Carthy and the character Iselin were portrayed as not having all of their marbles and extremists.....sound familiar?
    The 1950's and 1960's were of a different time technically, socially and media...........no computers/internet and only three major networks.
    Socially......go back and watch the television shows of that era and compare them to ones produced today......there is a vast difference in content and context. In a way we as people have been lead down a trail, some good, some bad to where we are today.......taught if you like.
    But in todays time things are a whole lot different than the 50's/60's......the programming/propoganda of just three major networks are over. Through a few honest media sources, internet access most, not all, of us have been educated and ain't takin' any more of this $hit and now the people of this Great Nation have a leader who ain't either.

    Come 2020 I would hope that all of us do not get complacent and think that Trump is going to win by a landslide and stay home........commit to vote, no matter what.

    If only McCarthy hadn't been railroaded back then. What a difference that would have made for decades to come.

    Nope...that was Chrchill's rebranding of the original Santayana saying "Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
