Now the devil either real or metaphorical take your pick want's religion that does not agree with his plan's to stay out of politics.
Ancient Israelites would leave the stubble and fallen grain in the field so that widow's and the poor could glean enough to eat, the also were
forbidden from evicting widow's from there home's.
Jesus said if you have two coats and your brother has non give him the one you are not using.
As you treat the least of these so too do you treat me.
The son of man has no place to lay his head.
On and on and on.
Yet some folk's insist on calling it Marxism because it is more inflammatory since Marx was an atheist.
Argentine went bad because of an elite whom controlled the money and because of government corruption, very few of those politicians left there job's
poor, they used the government of Argentina to strip mine that country's economy and wealth into there own hand's and perhaps were also driven by
radical anarchists behind the scene's whom wanted to destroy the old system, anarchists long predate Marx and indeed were a feature in France and
other European nations such as Austria for a long time before the Russians had there own revolution, out of these two movements emerged Communism and
Fascism but I will argue NOT center left socialism which is more common sense.
I will also argue that a sensible welfare system (as long as it is not being spent on drug's such as crack and the money is channelled to buy cheap
good's made within the nation that pay's that welfare instead of unregulated imports from other nations) actually acts as a stimulus to the low value
retail sector from everything from clothing to utility's, these people have to eat, they have to have clothing, as long as the able bodies welfare
recipient's can earn far more in a Job and crime is kept under control by a decent police force (AND MORE IMPORTANTLY CULTURE OF RESPECT FOR THE
POLICE AND THE LAW - other wise it is chaos and that is the work of radical's aka Anarchists whom are pretty much still around today - and they used
to blow thing's up and commit atrocity's as well remember in nations like Austria, Germany and France long before Marx ideal's drove some of them down
a different path toward abolishing the old status quo that they hated so much) then this money goes in a complete circle, it subsidises retail, retail
logistics and industry including farming.
A healthy population is one that is more able to work, so long as the job's can be materialized who would want a sickly population so health care is
an essential in any humane society, only evil old fashioned idealists like the old Tory's of the 1800's in Britain whom believed in so called natural
wastage of the excess population - in other word's allowing the poor to starve and die of disease to keep there numbers down.
A government SHOULD control essential industry and utility's, if it has a military it should buy domestically produced machines and technology's for
that military, these should source there material's as much as possible from within the nation and so a government at least part owning and
subsidising these NOT JUST IN TIMES OF WAR is actually an essential but free market radical's whom are in there own way actually ANARCHISTS hate this,
they believe in a single world, no borders to block free trade, no welfare because people are a commodity's so let's bring back slavery in there real
hidden opinion and though they may kick and scream that this is not the truth the fact is the writing is on the wall.
Another thread I will direct you to, rethink your position if you are in any way a Christian because it is not compatible with Christ himself so it
is against him, even if blindly so.
However great video and very interesting parallel's but I believe nothing happens by chance, there are those that want the US to fail, there were
those that wanted Argentina to Fail, back then Argentina WAS the other America that people from Europe were settling in and making new lives, they all
had one goal, to build a new country and make it great, today how many that live in country's no longer have that goal.
And as for free market economy's, they are fine as long as they stay humane, no corporations, no monopolies and no protection racket's ran by
gangsters and bent politicians and just maybe it would work, it did work in the early 1900's before WW1 in the USA when your company's were far
greater in number, far smaller and nearly all US citizen's were actually self employed, it failed when the corporations got greedy and wall street
went off the track's, now your people pay the tax burden and corporations are allowed to run rampant and rule behind the scenes when in fact they are
the enemy of your democracy not it's friend.
