Minority Bolshevism is Killing America

41ADMyvBMtLMinority Bolshevism is killing America. I’ve read a number of books on Communism, Socialism, and Marxism and you probably have as well. However, author Zuriel Redwood seems to be able to put things together remarkably well (and concisely) in a book that helps us understand just exactly how these ideologies have gotten us to the point where we are at now and what’s in store for us if we continue down this path.

Redwood notes, “This book is about the wrong tracks and the people who designed them, who built them and who are peddling the one-way tickets. Minority Bolshevism is the ideology responsible for diverting our future onto the wrong tracks. Minority Bolshevism is killing America.”

Let me start by saying that the book is not tremendously in-depth. Redwood doesn’t spend a good deal of time breaking everything down so that the reader gets bored before he reaches the conclusion. No, Redwood is more concerned about concise, useful explanations that allow people to understand that piece of the puzzle, then that other piece of the puzzle, and then the next. Soon, the entire puzzle is starting to take shape. Rather than focusing solely on one or two pieces of the puzzle, Redwood uses the various pieces to help build the completed picture.

While Redwood provides an overview – or history and development – of Marxism, Communism, Socialism, leading to what he calls the New Left, he does so only to show how things got to be the way they are now, especially in America. You’ve likely read about the CounterCultural Movement of the 1960s, the Anti-War protests, and many things that have become part of this nation’s undeniable history and fabric. It has all worked toward a minority Bolshevism and he explains that in his book.

At its root, Marx “advocated the violent overthrow of capitalism and all class-based societies.” [1] He also advocated political power against economic power. One can easily see that those who hold political power also oversee economic power in many ways. Moreover, together with friend and comrade Friedrich Engels, they “decided that religion and the family also had to be destroyed.” [2] These were considered to be “ancient and oppressive traditions.” They needed to go. But how to accomplish it?

Marx  truly saw the need for a violent revolution and was sorely disappointed when the Parisian Proletariat did not follow through and actually kill the ruling class, but preferred organizing elections instead. After a short time, this same Proletariat was put down by France’s armies, thus ending the first successful revolution.

Intellectual Antonio Gramsci was a life-long Italian communist, whose writings (while in prison) came to be the foundation for the New Left of today. It was learned that upon his death in prison (in 1937), he left the world with 1,800 pages of writings that reflected his intellectualism with respect to Communism and the fight against Capitalism.

Instead of looking to the “proletariat” to carry the torch for revolution (they had learned to compromise with the business titans of his day – something he called “Fordism”), he set out to find new groups of people whose discontent could be fanned into flame. This flame – he hoped – would well up into a full-fledged conflagration that would catapult them to victory against the bourgeois – capitalists!

Who were these new groups of people? Gramsci “identified homosexuals, radical feminists, racial minorities and criminals, among others, as potential allies in this fight. He also thought it would be more feasible to wage this war on the field of culture. A ‘culture war’ seemed more winnable than economic struggle or political revolution.” [3] Remember, this was in the 1930s.

Furthermore, Gramsci “even devised a new strategy against class-based society — instead of direct confrontation and revolution, he advocated a ‘long march through the institutions’. He essentially invented the idea of ‘cultural revolution’.” [4]

What is fascinating is that, though Gramsci died in prison never seeing his dreams come true, they began to come to fruition through an American president by the name of Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR), a Democrat and progressive whose programs created much of the foundation for coming ideals. Interestingly enough, “Soon after becoming President he recognized the Soviet Union (USSR) and made a deal to settle all cases of Soviet expropriation of American property. He did not bother to send the agreement to the Senate for ratification.” [5] The fact that FDR totally bypassed Congress reminds me of another president who seems to enjoy doing the same thing. Ah, who needs Congress?

The 1960s officially introduced the “cultural revolution” to America. America was in Vietnam. A new “rock and roll” music had just barely come out of its shell, only to be pushed aside by “acid music” from musicians like Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Janis Joplin, and others. Hippies became a household word. As Redwood notes, “In a single generation culture itself has changed. A decade after that it was unrecognizable.” [6]

People who did not live through this tumultuous change will never understand it. They will only be able to see it from afar, not ever truly understanding the impact those changes had on America and the world. Activism became socially acceptable and because of that, change was expected.

This has all led to the pinnacle of the New Left Ideal: political correctness, which is not based on any absolute truth, but based on emotional virtue. If it feels good, it must be right. If it feels good, do it.  As Redwood opines, “Political correctness is a devastating weapon that attacks our very ability to think clearly about the most important issues of the day. It prevents us from making the right decisions. It defeats us before the battle even began.” [7]

The New Left has at its purpose the old ideas of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. They have simply found the way to recreate those ideas so that they accomplish what Marx intended while going about it in a completely different way.

I can list any numbers of books that will teach you about Marxism, Communism, or Socialism. But this book is written to clearly achieve its intended goal of deciphering what these things are and how they have been at work to change global society.

Redwood’s book is available as a free Kindle download until midnight tonight. You can also buy the paperback for less than $10.

    FTA: they “decided that religion and the family also had to be destroyed.” [2] These were considered to be “ancient and oppressive traditions.” They needed to go.

    “ancient and oppressive” my foot! The real reason was, and is, because the truth would expose the sham that Marxism was, and is. The enemy of humanity doesn’t want anything around that would expose his schemes for gaining power over them. And the New Left, aka, aggressive regressive progressives, love to blind themselves to the truth-they don’t mind being deceptive to have their goals of control over others met never minding that they should wonder if their goals are worthy ones if they have to be so sneaky and conniving in order to make it come to pass!

    Oh, there’s to be no teaching of American history soon enough and the babes born after the ’90s will never know that a change occured unless they should be told by their fuddy-duddy grandparents…so out of touch as they are!
