Quotes and Excerpts

 Marks and Masks of Socialism

"Socialism requires that we find ways to spend money until all are reduced to equal income. Wisely our founders would not permit unconstitutional spending, sadly the Marxist will not let the Constitution stand in the way of their agenda." Michael Dullea


Faith-Based Compromise? "They call it The Third Way, Communitarianism, Consensus Democracy, the New Middle or neo-socialism -- and they are right. It is socialism, and it will control states as well as local communities through evolving partnerships and standards. The terms and the strings will continually change as our leaders adapt them to the demands of the national-international agenda. 

    "The greatest danger comes from the misleading phrases and deceptive promises. The program called 'faith-based partnerships' is not based on faith in God's Word. It's a top-down government-based strategy likely to distort faith, manipulate truth, undermine efficient and personal Christian service, and silence the gospel among those who most need to hear it."


Soviet Socialism


The Soviet System of Control Similar to "Participatory Democracy": '“The test in a totalitarian state was not whether the publication was treasonable or seditious, but whether it tended to advance official ideology.'... 'In his pamphlet entitled 'A great Beginning,' Lenin... wrote that a characteristic feature of our building socialism are different social relations.... This different type of social relations, the power of the Soviets, creates conditions for the masses' work... and it is only within that social bond that the creative force of the masses is born..." (See Soviet Education in the 1930s compared to U.S. Education in 2001)


GORBACHEV'S Plan for a United World: "...in our discussions here at the forum there was no trace of the futile debate about what is better, capitalism or socialism.... We should seek a synthesis of ideas and values that have proven their viability..." Mikhail Gorbachev, discussing a new form of democracy."


Mine is the Power? "You may remember that the UN dubbed 1995 the Year of Tolerance. Yet, the narrow tolerance shown in Beijing excluded all opponents to the feminist agenda. Women could speak freely as long as they fit the planned 'consensus,' and UN organizers would block pro-life groups that tried to “unbalance the proceedings.' As Andrei Vishinsky wrote in The Law of the Soviet State,

"...naturally, there can be no place for freedom of speech, press, and so on for the foes of socialism."

     "Karl Marx and other revolutionaries started it long before women had a public voice. There's reason to believe they are merely using the women's demands to create the right climate for change. In a 1993 speech at the International Development Conference, James P. Grant, past executive director of the United Nation's Children's Fund (UNICEF), stated that -- Children and women can be our Trojan Horse for attacking the citadel of poverty, for undergirding democracy, dramatically slowing population growth and for accelerating economic development.'"


Nazi Socialism


The Nazi Model For Outcome-Based Education: "Hitler's goal was National Socialism, a fascist state that would subdue the world. Learning his lessons from Soviet revolutionaries, he knew that only cloaked promises and misleading visions could win the support of the unsuspecting masses -- and build a compliant army of young radicals. That America's educational and political leaders would stoop to the same low standard has remained hidden from the general public. That their aim is global socialism with cradle-to-grave surveillance is angrily denied by the trained and trusted guardians of our children's minds.


Bloody Utopian Dreams, Part 2 The Enigma of the Third Reich: "Much of the historical material on the Germanic esoteric societies and their links to National Socialism is based on the scholarly work of Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke and his book, The Occult Roots of Nazism: Secret Aryan Cults and their Influence on Nazi Ideology."



"Christian" Socialism


Trading Truth for a "Social Gospel": "Called 'Father of the Social Gospel,' Walter Rauschenbusch (1861-1918), grew up in a German Lutheran immigrant family in New York. He studied theology at the University of Rochester, one of hundreds of educational and 'Christian' institutions funded by John D. Rockefeller. After pastoring a Baptist Church among poor immigrants in New York City for a few years, he joined the faculty at Rochester Theological Seminary -- also funded by Rockefeller. In 1902 he became its Professor of Church History. From this prominent platform, he wrote books such as 'Christianizing the Social Order' and 'A Theology for the Social Gospel.' 

     "He and his comrades established the 'Brotherhood of the Kingdom,' which unified like-minded church leaders under a common socialist quest for an earthly 'Kingdom of God.' ...To justify its place in "Christian" theology, words like redemption and regeneration were redefined to fit their socialist ideals."


Christian Socialist Movement: "CSM traces its origins back to 1848, though the movement has grown and developed since then through the contribution of people with a clear commitment to social justice born of their Christian faith. F D Maurice, Ellen Wilkinson [Fabian socialist], George Lansbury [Angela Lansbury's grandfather], RH Tawney [Fabian]... may be among the better known Christian Socialists...."


Christian socialism: "Christian socialism generally refers to those on the Christian left whose politics are both Christian and socialist and who see these two things as being interconnected. Broadly speaking, this category can include Liberation theology and the doctrine of the social gospel. The term 'Christian Socialism' is used in this sense by organizations such as the Christian Socialist Movement (CSM), a specifically Christian grouping affiliated with the British Labour Party. The term also pertains to such earlier figures as the nineteenth century writer Frederick Denison Maurice (The Kingdom of Christ, 1838) and Francis Bellamy..."


The Church and_Socialism: "'Christian Socialism' is neither Christian nor Socialism.... It minimizes or denies such Christian truths as the incarnation, the virgin birth, the atonement, the resurrection, justification by faith, the work of the Holy Spirit, the second coming of Christ, and insofar it ceases to be true Christianity.

     "On the other hand, it is not real Socialism. Few of its adherents deny the right of private capital, or insist upon the 'collective ownership of the instruments of production.' In the effort to unite Christianity and Socialism justice is done to neither....

     "Popular Socialism, however, is... a social creed, offered as a substitute for religion, promising material benefits to all mankind, and bitterly opposed to Christianity and the Church. ... Great multitudes who call themselves Socialists have vague conceptions of the problems of political science or of the serious difficulties involved in the establishment of a Socialistic state, but they are vividly conscious of their hatred against existing institutions which they hold responsible for the present social inequalities and wrongs....

     "Popular Socialism unjustly places all capitalists under suspicion of dishonesty and selfishness.... Its outcries against the rich are engendering the bitterest class hatred and arousing passions which, unless controlled, will result in violence and anarchy and universal disaster....

     "Popular Socialism fails to recognize that the principles of justice, fraternity and charity, by which its leaders claim to be animated, are Christian principles, and have been expressed by the Church as by no other society of men."
