Socialism and fascism are to me essentially taking the power of the individual – relinquishing one’s control over one’s own destiny – and handing it over to an oppressive ideology via the state and/or designated groups operating as co-ops to use or neglect as they see fit for the state and/or group.
Everyone looks the same, acts the same, talks the same, hides the same, BUT is equally worthy, equally compensated, equally educated, and pretty much told what to do and how to live being a second class citizen in a second class citizen world ruled by states and/or groups.
Ownership is a relative concept, except when administering to the second class citizenry their rental privileges.
Freedom to express one’s talents and gifts outside the realm of the ruling ideology is forbidden unless dictated otherwise.
We the second class citizens of the world would share the same status as the other worker bees and worker ants, aka citizenry, of third world nations, sitting always at the feet of our ruling appointees, never at the table. I mean, come on, how big a table would you need for each person under a socialist regime, claiming equal power to share their ideas for supplying the world with all that the citizenry needs?
You want the world to be like you, right? If you’re socialist, you want everybody to be socialist? What if they’re not, who do you do business with? You need money to survive. How can you compete globally? If the government is responsible for business, except for the Mom and Pops, you’re going to be all working on plantations just to feed yourselves. What will happen to the ethnic owned businesses? You won’t be getting tax write-offs for rotten produce; you’ll be selling it rotten – it has already begun in the USA.
Who would be in charge of making sure every voice was heard? It’s too cumbersome; it would take years for each person to speak one sentence where all the others hear it. Decades maybe.
So, already a heirarchy is being created. You call it a co-op. Everyone has an equal voice because it’s small, but you need rules for a tie. That’s where a democracy seeps in. And where do you take the final vote if you need to speak to a larger issue to a different body? Representatives emerge to be the voice of the vote. Here we are on democracy lane again.
Both systems create chaos under the guise of calm. People who live in fear can be very quiet, but beneath the surface simmers a desire to break free.
Neither system is conducive to progress, because progress needs organization, highly skilled people and connections to flourish. Both systems isolate the second class populace citizenry – they’re shut off from the world. How can they contribute, except in ways dictated to them by their respective ideological systems of government? There you go with the dictator.
The tenets set forth for fascist and socialist regimes are a farce. Neither is workable as stated, and under the influence of either one, no one is free to be guided by their talents, strengths, dreams, their set backs and come backs to make a stronger, different, better effort. Because under these two systems all is one, and as we’ve seen with the black African race, seeing, hearing, thinking, speaking, acting as one – in unity – does not create harmony; it creates discord.
The human animal is not built to think with one collective mind. Thinking individually gives you the greatest survival advantage protection.
That’s my overgeneralized view of how the ruling factions of such regimes view it’s second class citizenry – operating on the false premises of ‘providing equally for all’.
Equal for all means equal for none.
Both of these ideologies dismiss the emotional component of the human animal, making them behave like machines – as pre-programmed for the so-called good of everybody else. Who decides who does what? Equally important, who rules the state and the co-ops? Where’s the oversight?
Blind trust seems to be the overriding principle that allows for the existence of either or both systems.
Both are evangelical in nature: Trust us with your cash we saw you hide, and we’ll reserve a seat for you in heaven. So what? I can have a seat at God’s table after I die, why not an earthly table while I live? God doesn’t sit there?
Well, it doesn’t work that way sweetheart. Don’t worry your pretty little head about it.
Fascism and Socialism were built by and for men. Make no mistake about that.
Acquisition is based on favor not merit, so all the slackers of the world get a free ride without lifting a finger, which leaves the rest of the second class citizenry to do two and three jobs for the same amount of equally divided goods and services, which makes both systems susceptible to fraud and corruption. All those slackers have to do something all day, so they find ways to game the system. Co-ops become gangs and private enterprise becomes the domain of illicit, but still functional money-hoarding black markets and organized crime syndicates.
Do you think there are no prisons in these oppressive societies? Oh yeah, there are prisons, but you don’t get to run them, like the cartel bosses currently do. I have a question. If Mexico is a democracy, then how is it that the drug cartels are allowed by the government to run you out of your own country of origin? And you let them.
It’s a farce. All of it.
