The Societal Impact of Socialism

By Brannon S. Howse

George Bernard Shaw represented the Fabian point of view by calling for "the socialization of the means of production, distribution, and exchange" to bring about an equal distribution of goods and services to all members of society and to make the State "the ALL of social well-being." The State "subsumes all economic life of the nation."  


In his Intelligent Woman's Guide to Socialism, Shaw details what happens to a culture once socialism is fully implemented:


Socialism means equality of income or nothing, and that under Socialism you would not be allowed to be poor. You would be forcibly fed, clothed, lodged, taught, and employed whether you like it or not. If it were discovered that you had not the character and industry enough to be worth all this trouble, you might possibly be executed in a kindly manner; but whilst you were permitted to live you would have to live well.


And just where will we find the money to feed, clothe, lodge, and teach everyone? Cuba has been trying this for years, and everyone in Cuba—whether doctor or sanitation worker—gets a check for about $10 each month from the government. The government-guaranteed poverty of Cuba is standard fare for socialism. The only ones who prosper are those in the ruling class. Castro has ruled over a nation of slaves who work in fields and factories to fund a lavish lifestyle for him, his military, and other favorites in his police state.

A friend of mine who has traveled to Cuba many times to speak at pastors’ conferences describes the extreme poverty and tyranny that results from socialism. Many of the pastors to whom he ministers have been repeatedly imprisoned for speaking against the government or for proclaiming the Gospel beyond the walls of their church.

Notice that Shaw says that when the socialist system or new world order is fully in place, those that don't have the "character" to go along with their dictatorship will be “kindly” executed. I believe when America has fully implemented a government-run, national healthcare system, those that do not have the "character" to go along could easily be denied medical care and could find their lives snuffed out. If you think this sounds unrealistically extreme, then you don't understand the evil, tyrannical, and vindictive nature of socialism. 


Russian author Fedor Dostoyevsky warned of the consequences of socialism: "The future kingdom of socialism will be a terrible tyranny of criminals and murderers. It will throw humanity into a true hell of spiritual suffering and poverty."


As Dr. David Noebel explains, the goal of Fabian socialists and the Keynesians that promote it is not only the destruction of capitalism but the destruction of Christianity as well: 


Socialists are united in their desire to see capitalism destroyed, either forcefully or gradually, and most would rejoice if Christianity were destroyed along with it. Socialists and liberals generally see in Christians “an infallible marker of mental retardation.”


Until they can completely transform America into a welfare-State Capitalism, politicians will take advantage of the wealth generated by capitalism to gain votes by redistributing it to the masses. Noebel describes their scheme:

Today's Fabians/Progressives/Radicals allow their capitalist enemies to create wealth, but acquire it by taxing them instead of slaughtering them (Marx's "reign of terrorism on the bourgeoisie").  They are then free to distribute the wealth among the economically disadvantaged, the intellectual elites, and the superior governing classes.  


Such (re)distribution of wealth ensures the favorable vote of the masses being fed, entertained, housed (with sub-prime loans) and doctored.  ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) and socialism fit hand-in-glove just as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac fit Barney Frank, Maxine Waters, and Chris Dodd to a "T." 


Most Americans are totally unaware that the U.S. House of Representatives crawls with a large, well-organized assembly of socialist organizations.  These organizations are dedicated to (a) bringing about the destruction of the capitalist economic system (portrayed as greedy, conservative, religious, and/or filthy rich) and (b) slowly but surely bringing production, education, food, and health care under the complete control and regulation of the federal government.


Even though Fabians do not endorse the violent, radical tactics of communists, they will nevertheless defend communists as allies in their march toward globalism. President Obama and many that have served in his administration and in Congress are disciples of the Fabian socialists:


Fabians worked for world revolution not through uprising of the workers but through indoctrination of young scholars. The Fabians believed that eventually these intellectual revolutionaries would acquire power and influence in the official and unofficial opinion-making and power-wielding agencies of the world. Then they could quietly establish a socialistic, one-world order.


Fabian socialists have been disciplined and committed for years in converting individuals to their worldview, and nothing has worked better or more surreptitiously than Keynesianism.
