Communism Video Documentary: Power to the People Always Ends in the Hands of one Brutal Man

I have been rereading Winds of War by Herman Wouk. I read it many years ago and remembered liking it. I was struck by the story of a WWII German submarine attacking a British Royal Navy compound at Scapa Flow at night, sinking a British battleship. I didn’t recognize the name Scapa Flow, so did some investigating and found that the event was real, as were the entire details of the event.  As I’ve moved through the book, I’ve continued checking names and events and find that the book is solid historical fiction. At my place in the book now, Germany violated their pact with Russia in 1941 and put the Soviets underseige, where eventually Germany lost. This brings me to a video-documentary that I found online – free, about the the Russian people and their yearning for ‘people power,’ a false hope that decimated the country under Communism.

The website linked below, has a long list of documentaries. One that caught my attention is pertinent to today’s politics and the book I am reading. For three years we have listened to Obama drone on-and-on about equality, spreading the wealth, a fair playing-field, a level playing-field, and becoming more like Europeans. His background is deeply meshed in Communism, and the video I watched is, wait for it…Communism.

Obama’s father was an ardent Communist; his boyhood mentor Frank Marshall Davis, an ardent Communist and his idol as a young university student and still today, Saul Alinsky – an ardent Marxist/Communist. All, including Barack Obama, advocate for a type of ‘people power’ as the answer to all problems, especially poverty, but anyone paying attention knows ‘people power,’ without a republican democracy, means only ‘power in the hands of one brutal man.’

Communism is a series of several videos. The first centers on the Soviet Union and what we consider modern-day Communism. Russians who were young at the time of Lenin and Stalin, tell the story of the hopes of ‘people power’ with the rise of Communism and the demise of the Russian Tsars.

No matter where Socialism/Marxism/Communism is embraced around the world, we know as a certainty, none has ever worked for the good of the people, or brought prosperity to anyone, anywhere in the world.

You’ll find the documentary Communism – Part 1 Red Flag, a sober refresher course in what you already know: people suffer mightly under Communist rule. In the video, you will hear a Russian saying: ‘we thought Communism meant democracy.’

Visit Documentary-Log’s homepage here, see their long list of hundreds of videos here, and find Downloads under the banner. I recommend Winds of War. It isn’t great literature, but it is a fascinating look into the timeline of WWII, following a family head, a Naval attache and sons serving as a Navy aviator and Navy submariner.

    At this point in history, the soviet gulag system was being revamped only to provide support and manpower to the war effort, the soviets had starved millions of Ukrainians to death, confiscated their property and farms, sent the Ukrainians into slave-collective farms.

    offered these same farms that had been seized to Jews in the Soviet Union under Operation Ozmet and Komzet who were offered the CHOICE of accepting these farms while the surviving Ukrainians were herded like cattle,

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OZET

    Which is why the Ukrainians were the most enthusiastic and cooperative in helping the Nazi’s murder Jews in the Holocaust..

    The russian people under the Soviet leadership had enslaved or been recently ejected by the Nazis from Finland, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Estonia, and the Cossack Republics… giant portions of all these countries populations including women and children had been sent to their deaths in brutal siberian gulag labor camps..

    I dont know how any of this sounds like a population striving for “people power”.

    **If you dont know (real) history, you are bound to repeat it.**

    In the same vein as the misstatements above, this Blog condemns Communism but supports Neocon politicians and Media who come NOT from the american conservatism of the Founding Fathers, but from the same Soviet Communism you think you oppose.
    .
    The Founder of “Neoconservatism” endorsed by FOX, Romney, Santorum, Gingrich.. was a russian jew named Irving Kristol-

    “Irving Kristol (January 22, 1920 – September 18, 2009) was an American columnist, journalist, and writer who was dubbed the “godfather of neoconservatism”.
    “The New York Intellectuals were a group of Jewish American writers and literary critics based in New York City in the mid-20th century. They advocated left-wing politics but were also firmly anti-Stalinist. The group is known for having sought to integrate literary theory with Marxism and Socialism while rejecting Soviet Communism as a workable or acceptable political model.”
    (they wanted a way to accomplish global marxist goals/conditioning by portraying it as something else, in other words)
    “Some, including Kristol, Hook, and Podhoretz, later became keys figures in the development of Neoconservatism.”

    When you see Neocon media like hannity, oreilly, beck, etc.. calling for global intervention, ‘freedom-spreading’ etc.. that is not from the conservatism of the founding fathers, it comes from the Neocon trotsky-ites and Bolsheviks who wanted to topple govts and create puppet states in their place, resulting in a global empire they controlled.

    The founding fathers, Washington, Jefferson, Madison, all directed us to avoid entangling alliances and not get dragged into other conflicts.

    In contrast the Kristol Neocon’s who you see on FOX still today daily with Bill Kristol advocating costly spending on endless wars in the middle east, seek to not caution americans to protect their own domestic interests, but seek to delude people to do their bidding-

    Irving Kristol-
    “Viewed in this way, one can say that the historical task and political purpose of neoconservatism would seem to be this: to convert the Republican party, and American conservatism in general, AGAINST THEIR RESPECTIVE WILLS, into a new kind of conservative politics..”

    • Censored Facts: “I dont know how any of this sounds like a population striving for “people power”.”

      The population at the time Lenin and Stalin came to power said Communism espoused power to the people as a way to sell the theory. In the video, a man said they thought communism would bring democracy. Everyone interviewed joined the Party to make a better and a freer life for themselves and their families.

      By the way, you and others, or maybe you are the others, posting here about neocons is a big yawn. Get over it and move on.

      • back in the saddle

        you are not that bright, or honest!

  • last conservative

    Traditional conservatives like the founders were nationalists, not globalists.
    Nationalists warn against parties who seek to divide and conquer the countries population so they can then be turned into instruments to do the same thing across the planet to others-
    Read Washington’s Farewell address and see if that is compatible with Neocon activities.
