Shakedown Socialism: Exposes Socialist and Progressive Rackets
IN the 6th century BC, Sun Tzu advised to "Know thy enemy." Shakedown Socialism, People's Cube founder Oleg Atbashian's essential guide for spotting the same Progressive policies that failed in his native USSR and are being foisted on unaware Americans is the best way to follow Sun Tzu's advice in 2010.
- RECOGNIZE THE SOCIALIST/PROGRESSIVE RACKET BEFORE IT DESTROYS YOUR LIFE: READ SHAKEDOWN SOCIALISM
- HOW TO SPOT THE PERPETUAL BLOODSUCKING MACHINE THAT IS PROGRESSIVISM
The name of the book is Shakedown Socialism. Remember it; if Big Government isn't cut off at the knees soon, readers will find the book a handy guide to what is next in store for them.
In Chapter One, Lenin: "Trade Unions are the School of Communism," Atbashian demonstrates how labor unions, working through the Democratic Party, are attempting to freeze out the free movement of labor–except to those approved by union leaders. Where did SEIU's Andy Stern get his ideas? Hint: they didn't spring from his creatively fertile imagination.
Chapters Two and Three cover the topics of "Incoming: Forced Inequality and Economic Injustice" and "Unions: A Study in Collective Greed and Selfishness." Both chapters are chock full of examples connecting policies which Progressives have worked to install in the USA which were implemented in the USSR decades before.
Make that "Implemented in the USSR decades before–and failed."
Chapter Four, "Rigging the Economy in the Name of 'Justice'" was particularly good. Many readers will recognize the current Progressive buzzwords of "social justice." The chapter starts out:
The demands of forced economic equality are usually justified by the "growing gap" between the rich and the poor, and men and women, as well as various groups of minorities. Such demands are usually followed by a plan to improve on reality by aggressively tampering with market forces–which, as we already know, can only make the existing income gap worse due to the resulting poverty, economic stagnation and limited upward mobility.
Sound familiar? It should. Liberals have been using the "social justice" MO to help destroy America's competitive edge for quite some time. Every perceived inequality is a reason for MORE government intervention; the failure of the government's 'solutions' is further evidence that EVEN MORE government control of the economy is needed.
Leftist economist, Paul Krugman can be spouting a variation on this theme regularly in the pages of the New York Times. The nearly-trillion dollar Obama Stimulus utterly failed at what its Progressive backers claimed it would do? The answer is MORE STIMULUS cash! See? It's a Progressive perpetual bloodsucking machine.
Everyone gets poorer in the end–except those favored by the government doling out Stimulus dollars, such as the $800+ million for a study on African genital washing. How many people would chip in to fund such a study in the free market? Not very many–which is the reason the federal government had to take that money from taxpayers and then give it away to the study's advocates. After filtering it through a number of layers of bureaucracy, each of which took their cuts..
"Obama the Pitchfork Operator: Remake of a Soviet Classic" chilled this reader with the similarity of the methods employed by Barack Obama upon taking power and those of another community organizer in the USSR: Nikolai Bulharin, in charge of industrial development in the Soviet Union during the time of Stalin.
