Lenin Lives!

July 2, 2020

Politics has always brought out the worst in politicians, but recent protests and riots recall events in Nazi Germany that are universally condemned. Conservative Talk Radio and commentators at Fox News have declared that these protests have origins in Communism.

They are partly right.

Occupy Wall Street, Me Too and Black Lives Matter are political creations, endorsed by former President Barack Obama, that serve a revolutionary political purpose. Inspired by Lenin’s 1902 essay, “What is to be Done,” these social protest “movements” fulfill Lenin’s call for “large non-Party organizations with mass membership controlled by communists.”

The “Communist” party of the former Soviet Union is dead, but Lenin’s ideology is alive in Venezuela, Nicaragua, North Korea, the People’s Republic of China and in the workbook of Barack Obama that he taught at the Midwest Academy in Chicago.

Peter Robinson’s interview with Stanley Kurtz, the author of the 2010 study of Barack Obama’s Marxist past, titled Radical in Chief, explores Obama’s role as a “community organizer” working with extra-party means to disrupt civil society.

Me Too and Black Lives Matter have touched a chord of rejection of sexual abuse and racism that currently troubles civil society. These claims have an immediate political purpose: election of Joe Biden in 2020 and control the U.S. Government by the extreme Left.

The outcome of this struggle this year is unknown. But, during the next fifty years we can see a realignment of our Two Party system, competition for national power by coalitions competing minority political parties, aggression by Russia, the PRC and Iran and a possible military solution an early sign of which is the entry into politics by Gen. James Mattis.

The parallel between events in Spain in the 1930s and the United States today are explained in this essay published at Modern Age in July of last year.
