Some in Hollywood Think Communism is Cool and Christian

Communism has attracted a number of people in Hollywood, from Dalton Trumbo and Burgess Meredith to modern-day communist sympathizers like Sean Penn and Matthew Modine. While they would not support the oppressive actions of Communist regimes, they do like the utopian dreams of Communist theorists. Of course, to get to

The ‘Jesus Was a Socialist’ and ‘Property is Theft’ Lies

“You shall not steal” is a fundamental biblical commandment that’s found in both Testaments (Ex. 20:15; 21:16; Lev. 19:11, 13; Matt. 19:18; Rom. 13:9). If property is theft, as one Christian stated on his Facebook page, then every person in the world is a thief because everyone owns something. If

Anti-Capitalist AOC Inadvertently Praises Capitalism

Far-left U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) spoke to a group of adoring fans at the South by Southwest conference who know as much about economics as she does. The question of automation came up: “We should not feel nervous about the tollbooth collector not having to collect tolls. We should

Ignorance of Socialism is No Excuse

Socialism is all the rage, but few people really know what it is and how it doesn’t work over the long haul. This is especially true of Millennials. “These days, if you hear people spouting the benefits of socialism, don’t assume that they’re talking about the socialism you probably loathe.

How Many People Really Know What Socialism Is?

Rhetoric matters. Words matter. Socialism sounds like “being social.” Conservatives keep denouncing Socialism. I wonder how many people know what it is. A good friend who works at a pregnancy center in Georgia recently set up a booth at a local college. It showed the development of an unborn baby.

Beware! There are Marxists in Your Church Ready to Pick Your Pocket in the Name of Jesus

When a politician starts talking about “income inequality” and promises to use the authority and force of government to “correct” it, that person is a Marxist, and the people who voted for him because he made such a promise are also Marxists. A Facebook friend did not believe it was

Christians Pushing ‘The Biblical Values of Ocasio-Cortez’s Democratic Socialism’

The folks at Sojourners have been pushing socialism in the name of Jesus and the Bible for decades. Claiming that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s economic policies are biblical is the height of absurdity. She does not know anything about economics. Her claim that a $3 billion tax break can be spent is prima facie evidence

Why Paying $100,000,000 For a Super-Yacht Is Voluntary Wealth Redistribution and Good For the Economy

“You’re all worse than the Fascists. At least Hitler gave us bread.”1 Alexandra Dubevich shouted these words to a senior Belorussian official because of the social eruptions that came on the heels of failed communist policies. “‘Freedom and Bread,’ was the slogan used by Hitler to great effect during the

Keeping the Deep State Alive at All Costs (To You and Me)

If there’s one thing governments fear is an overthrow of the status quo and their grip on power and unconstitutional ways to make money for those who feed on the government trough through illegitimate means. By their nature, civil governments are in the protection business. They should be protecting the

What’s at the Heart of Millennials’ Preference for Socialism?

Socialism has been creeping up in the United States for a long time. It didn’t just become popular with Bernie Sanders and the newly elected congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Socialism has wormed its way into our society a long time ago. Public education, a progressive income tax, and Social Security (especially the

Is the Bible the Original ‘Communist Manifesto’?

Recently I came across an article with the title, “Are Christians Supposed to Be Communists?” The author doesn’t answer his own question. He and others do claim that the Christians lived in “community.” Of course, that’s not the same thing as Communism, is it? The article’s author begins with this

The Midterms: “Free Stuff” or Freedom?

In previous articles, I’ve mentioned that we really wouldn’t need a wall to protect our borders if we did not live in a massive and growing welfare state. The great migration to the United States that my Italian grandparents took advantage of happened prior to the income tax, Social Security,

What Millennials Don’t Know About Socialism and Communism Will Hurt Them

“The majority of millennials would prefer to live in a socialist, communist or fascist nation rather than a capitalistic one, according to a new poll…. The most popular socioeconomic order was socialism, with 44 percent support. Communism and fascism received 7 percent support each.” (Washington Times). The most egregious political

Jim Carrey Is worth $150 million and Supports Socialism

Once-upon-a-time funny person Jim Carrey says Democrats need to “say yes to socialism.” “We have to say yes to socialism — to the word and everything,” Carrey told Bill Maher. “We have to stop apologizing” for the word and the ideology behind it. The two multi-millionaires must assume that socialism means to be

Should We Rally Around ‘No Taxation Without Representation’?

Some years ago, several people in comments to my article “Liberal Compares Obama’s Push for Tax Hikes to Lincoln Wanting to End Slavery,” used the phrase ‘No Taxation without Representation’ in reaction to where our nation is headed. It’s not a good response to our current situation. Right now, there

Can Democracy Become Tyrannical?

We have flunked our own history. We have naively assumed that almost any nation can establish a viable democracy by simply setting up some ballot boxes out in the villages and having free elections. As a people, we know so little history that we have not perceived that the American

The Millennial Dictionary: “Helping People is Socialism.”

Definitions matter. For the record, Merriam-Webster defines socialism as “any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods.” Simply, socialism is taking money and property from some people so it can be given to make everyone more

Do Americans Really Want Socialism?

We’re being told by some that the people of the United States want socialism. The thing of it is, we already have a mild form of socialism. In it’s now famous “We Are All Socialists Now” cover, Newsweek wrote: The U.S. government has already—under a conservative Republican administration—effectively nationalized the
