December 9

Things that make you go hmmmm……

In general, I do not wax philosophical ( I don’t wax, I shave) or blog about politics.

I have very strong and definite opinions, however, I also believe that everyone has the right and the privilege to have their own. Blogs and opinions. I try very hard to be respectful of others opinions, even if mine is the right one.

I came across 2 quotes the other day that were kind of scary, and I thought that I would pass them on.

You are going to think one of 3 things.

  1. That is horse pucky.
  2. Hmmmmmm, that is interesting
  3. Wow! She is so smart.


It is impossible to establish Communism as the immediate successor to Capitalism. Accordingly, it is proposed to establish Socialism as something which we can put in the place of our decaying Capitalism. Hence, Communists work for the establishment of Socialism as the necessary transition stage on the road to Communism.”

-English Marxist, John Strackey


The other one is just as profound.


“We can not expect Americans to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans doses of Socialism until they suddenly awake to find out they have Communism.”

-Soviet Premier Nikita Krurschchev


I am hoping that you all are thinking #3…just for ego’s sake.

  1. Sorry, CC, but I didn’t think #3….
    I already knew you were smart. 😀

    However I’ll admit that both those statements are true. Americans won’t give up capitalism for communism but we sure seem to be heading toward socialism. Somehow we’ve either got to wake up, take off the glasses and see things the way they really are or Jesus has got to come back. Those are the only options that will save us from having communism win the fight.

    Thanks CC.

  2. Quotes like that make you realize just how scary our world is getting politically. Sometimes I fear that we have become far too happy to be fat and lazy and just let the government do things for us.

    I once heard a quote that one of the best ways to get people to accept communism is to use government schools to educate the children. I really wish I could find the exact quote. This quote about education though is equally scary.

    The Rockefeller Education Board—which funded the creation of numerous public schools—issued a statement which read in part:

    In our dreams…people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hands. The present educational conventions [intellectual and character education] fade from our minds, and unhampered by tradition we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive folk. We shall not try to make these people or any of their children into philosophers or men of learning or men of science. We have not to raise up from among them authors, educators, poets or men of letters. We shall not search for embryo great artists, painters, musicians, nor lawyers, doctors, preachers, politicians, statesmen, of whom we have ample supply. The task we set before ourselves is very simple…we will organize children…and teach them to do in a perfect way the things their fathers and mothers are doing in an imperfect way.

    Makes me glad that I am politically aware and a homeschooling mom. Great post Chocolatechic.

  3. It is all Greek to me. sounds like something my son would come up with. On a lighter note that I understand, I started my Christmas baking today. Have you started baking yet?


  4. You are so smart to find those interesting comments! I got here late, so I missed the horse, I guess.

    Seriously, those are quotes that should shake the very backbones of working Americans. But, I just don’t see that happening….where cynicism & apathy haven’t set in, distraction has.

  5. I am with Rachelle and Cindy. Normally I can understand that stuff but not right now. I agree that we are tunring into Sodom and Gomoroah (sp?) and if Amercian doesn’t come back to what we were founded on, Christ, then this country will have the wrath of God. Our new gov. is anti homeschooling which is scary.

  6. oiy. I’m with Tresses, my country too is going to Heck in a handbasket. We’ll just arrive first. Our PM likes to consort with China.
