Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, founders of communism or “international socialism,” made a big deal of the working class or “proletariat.” They predicted that an imminent worldwide revolution would throw off the ruling class of royalists, reactionaries and the upper middle class or bourgeoisie. Today Marx’s new generation of intellectual descendants, who call themselves by many different names such as liberals, progressives, Democrats and even “independents,” still dupe people with his outdated 19th century playbook, re-written with new slogans, the chief of which is “The Great Reset.”
Marxist tyrants such as Lenin, Mao, Stalin, and others perfected techniques of art, propaganda, secret police and terror, along with the infiltration of academia and churches. Today’s generation is now using race, science and disease to create fear and oppression, pretty obvious to most thinking people by now.
But it is hard to imagine Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as the New Mao or Stalin, towering over “The Masses” in a propaganda poster. Can we possibly imagine this snowflake, with god-like rays emanating from behind, raising a patronizing hand, his countenance with a benevolent smile and adoring, lilliputian comrades rushing towards him?
Or, imagine a different mood, this time with Trudeau showing determined anger, with the proletariat carrying pitchforks, mallets, sickles, clenched fists, and rushing towards the imagined threats of exploitive capitalists, as the god Trudeau inspires them on.
Switch to imagining all this with Trudeau in Blackface. Have you seen the photos of him in his pampered, privileged youth? What a downer!
But “The Masses” that communists conjure were never a reality, even from the get-go. It was all imaginary, a creation of propaganda and art. Most of the true working class clung to their faith: Protestant, Catholic, Anglican or Orthodox. They took a hoe and shoveled manure. They tried to build a small business and provide for their own family’s security. But if they succeeded, they then became – enemies of the state!
Most of the working class didn’t buy into Marxist slogans, like “Workers of the world, unite.” How do we know? Because millions of these peasants went to their deaths in gulags.
For those who succumbed to lies, it was far more tangible to distrust your historical enemies. Thus, history saw the rise of national socialism or fascism, communism’s supposed right-wing antithesis, but which was really an estranged sibling and deadly rival. Socialism is the religion of “Confiscation & Redistribution,” whether it is national, international or “democratic.”
The supposed benevolence of “democratic” socialism is another example of sloganeering and trickery. The theory of “democratic” socialism is as false as the idea of Marx’s prediction that “The state will eventually whither away” and we would enter the bright fields of a man-made utopia.
If you haven’t noticed, democratic socialism just doesn’t go away. There have been brief instances where elections reversed socialism, as with Reagan, Thatcher and Mitterand. However, they did not undo the socialist structure, merely mitigated it, to be followed with a steady erosion of their work thereafter.
Canada is now spiraling into full-fledged dictatorship. Like all tyrannies, it pretends to be the “true representation” of the people, even while it is now obvious that the people detest their own government. Trudeau is stripped transparently and defends not the people, but the national and international oligarchy.

All socialism has ever been is an excuse to grab power. The elite know this, and laugh at “The Masses” and the Useful Idiots in the churches, media and academia who actually are suckered into believing the theories about a man-made apocalypse of eternal peace and prosperity.
A true communist leader would be working in the ditches and factories with the working class, standing in line for rations, and enlisting in the ranks. Aside from photo ops, such a dictator has never happened.
Canada’s world-famous Mounted Police now join the once-admired FBI and CIA. The caricatures of heroic Mounties, Cold War spies and FBI agents, viewed in movies and TV shows, are now seen as artistic propaganda, used to create a false reality in the minds of citizens.
Don’t blame only these tyrants and kooks. We all have contributed to this mess. As the Bible repeatedly warns, repentance must precede the answer to prayer.
