Unfortuntely we embrace some of it without even realizing it. "Filesharing" under the motto "Sharing is Caring" is embraced by 80% of the youth, they grow up thinking nothing of it. You try to question it in these Forums and you will get hoards of enraged people shouting at you defending their "civil right" to disregard legal property.
Filesharing - what an excellent allegory for wider Communism ideology. Thanks for that. I'm a musician myself and I've suffered severely due to filesharing. I made an album and set up my own tiny record label to distribute it. When I've googled the name of my album, I find it being not only sold, illegally, by websites (usually Russian) but I find countless sites offering free download of my mp3s. Last time I counted, using sites that document the number of downloads these mp3s have had, I worked out that at least 10 times more people have downloaded my music for free than have paid for it. As a result, I've personally lost money. A perfect example of why the Marxist sense of entitlement to others' property is destructive.

The problem with the New World Order, is the far left describe it as fascist and an oligarchy style capitalist model and yet the far right label it Marxist.
Whilst I don't agree with some of your points, I gave you a star because you do raise a very important point (which I believe I touched upon near the top of the thread): is Marxism merely a tool used by higher forces which themselves are not genuinely Marxist?
I consider myself niether 'left' nor 'right' wing, so I do take exception to you claiming that those who blame Marxism are themselves right-wingers with an axe to grind. But I do agree with you that the elites at the very top will exploit whichever political ideology they believe will achieve their goals for them. Sometimes they use far-right fascism, sometimes Marxism. We must be able to see through this. BUT, and here's the crux of my point here, the CURRENT system is widely yet covertly Marxist. In the 30s they used the far-right Nazis (who ironically were Socialist - a leftist ideology). I think a more genuine right-wing regime would have been the USA under the Bush's - a pro-capitalist, conservative, traditionalist Christian system.
But it's always important to remember that the 'far-right' is not defined by Fascism. Fascism rears its ugly head in Marxist, far-left regimes as frequently - if not more so - as in far-right regimes. In reality, there's no left and right, only right and wrong - liberty and slavery. Both the far-left and the far-right can be used to enslave. Currently, Marxism can be seen to be the culprit. And as Skyfloating points out, it's VERY, VERY 'cool' and acceptable to call yourself 'left-wing' these days, whilst very reprehensible to call yourself 'right'wing'. There's a reason for this, our generation has been socially-engineered this way.
As for the Green Party being anti-EU, are you sure about that?
