In “Fabian-Economics: The True Backbone of the Anti-Trump ‘So-Called Conservative’ and ‘Progressive’ Resistance,” it describes the major influence that Fabian-Economics has had on the leadership throughout not only Great Britain, but the United States, and the world as a whole. The Fabian’s realized that to truly transform a nation, or the world as a whole to a socialist ideology, they would need to take a new and different path. To understand Fabian-Economics and its socialist ties, you have to look at the various paths a nation can take towards the implementation of socialist ideology.
MARXIST IDEOLOGY (REVOLUTIONARY):
The First path is through Marxist ideology (seen in the image above takes the path to the left) They believe in a mass international revolution of the working class. According to the Oxford Reference: Marxists believed socialism ought to come by international revolution. In fact, in 1848 Karl Marx and Frederich Engels called for the ‘workers of all countries to unite!’ They believed that communism would take root and spread like a virus throughout the world, and an International Communist Movement would take hold and rise up against the capitalist world. In the years to come, International Communist movements did sprout up, with the first opening in 1864 by Karl Marx himself. It was called ‘The International Working Men’s Association’. In 1876, Marx moved to New York and brought the organization to NYC. Then in 1889, the ‘Second International’ was founded and embraced both Marxist and Non-Marxist Socialists, but it failed to take off and ended in 1914 when WWI began. The third (Communist International) was founded in 1919, and died by 1943. During that time, the Soviet Union’s was born out of Marxist ideology as Vladimir Lenin embraced the revolutionary Marxism and led the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution. Lenin lived in exile prior to the 1917 revolution. However, under his leadership, the Bolshevik Party quickly consolidated power, while privatizing all areas of the Soviet economy. He was ruthless and cracked down on anyone who opposed him by sending out his secret police (called the Cheka). The Cheka instituted what came to be known as ‘Red Terror’, aimed at destroying anyone who opposed his power grab. As a result, Russian Civil War broke out, until he obtained absolute power over the Soviet Union. Lenin’s ruthless reign was spent trying to shape the future of the Soviet Union, and he warned against unchecked power by Party Elites. However, his warnings went unheeded, and eventually Joseph Stalin would take over as the leader following Lenin’s death in 1924. Joseph Stalin was a cunning and ruthless leader who took power officially in 1929. Under his leadership, Stalin turned the USSR into a mighty military superpower. However, during that same time, he instituted labor camps, execution squads, and became one of the greatest mass murderers in the 20th Century killing over an estimated 20 million of his own citizens. Anyone who opposed him became scared for not only their own life, but the lives of their spouse and children. The Soviets experimented with countries that were behind Iron Curtain after WWII, and under their iron fist. During that time they implemented international socialism with some Soviet States, and isolated socialism in others. They implemented whatever ideology in each State that they perceived to benefit the U.S.S.R.’s Elitist Political Class.
Communism had a distinct number of faults that led it to collapse. It demonstrated a lack of creativity due to their Party not seeing art’s benefit for the collective, to artists and thinkers who didn’t conform to the Party’s viewpoint would face charges of high treason. Secondly private farming was not allowed. The force collectivization law was a doctrine enforced through Soviet Russia between 1928 and 1940, which coincided with Stalin’s rise to power. During the Russian implementation of communism, private farms were conscripted into their collectivization program. Then, the food was distributed equally among the population. Anyone who resisted, were eliminated through execution, or re-education. The Chinese took similar actions against all those who opposed their rule. The third problem that led to the downfall of communist regimes was the lack of rights that individuals were allowed to have. Under communist rule, individuals had to surrender personal rights and freedoms to make room for ‘the collective.’ Citizens lost the freedom of speech, since they were considered a danger to the Communist party, and the loss of private property, civil rights, or artistic expression took away some of the other basic human rights allotted to individuals. It was not important to think of what was best for each individual or family, but instead what is best for the collective whole. Furthermore, in communist societies that needs of the collective began to give way to the needs of the political elite class. To make matters worse for communist countries, they were not able to adapt to outside global economic and social changes. China, was able to create a communist hybrid economy that was better able to react to outside stimuli, in addition to implementing corrupt and illegal practices like currency manipulation, unfair trade practices, breaking child labor laws, low wages, dangerous working conditions, etc. to out-price nations like the United States who have higher wages, and thousands of regulations on businesses. Countries like the Soviet Union were doomed from the start, since they refused to react to the markets outside the borders of their nation. Another problem that communist countries faced was a lack of innovation. With communism being such a closed society, and innovation being the result of humans striving to create a the newest and greatest invention to make their fortune, it makes communist innovation an impossible feat. To create an innovation that will benefit the communist elites, and not you or your family, it takes the motivation away for the individuals personal innovative drive. Furthermore, with a closed communist society, the collective is more focused on production than on actual innovation. To make matters worse under communism, poor economic calculation is another downfall of the ideology. Typically, economy dictates that the price of a product is formed when the offer meets demand. However, under the communist doctrine, a command economy is the only way of determining how the resources are spent. This is where a huge disparity begins to show between the worker and the political elites. The Political Elites tend to gain in wealth, power, and living conditions, while the average worker (proletariat) has little wealth, no power, rights, freedoms, and has poor living conditions. Another problem with communism stems from its blatant human rights abuses. With power held in the hands of the few, mass murder becomes just one of the tragedies of the communist regimes. From the rise of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia to Stalin’s rise to power, the history of communism is riddled with tales of atrocities committed against those who did not embrace the communist doctrine. Communist regimes have been riddled with famine, overwork, child labor, mass executions, and other atrocities. Not to mention, the fact that a neurosurgeon makes the same as a factory worker, despite how difficult and long the schooling. Also, a worker on a farm making the same as a high risk nuclear reactor worker would take away the incentive to work high-risk jobs. It takes away the incentives for people performing tougher or more dangerous jobs to be motivated to work harder or innovate. In all, Karl Marx’s communist utopian social experiment was doomed from the start. From its lack of rights, power in the hands of the political elite, obsessive control, and the many other problems, communism was a time bomb set to explode at any given moment. Combined with the reality that communism is founded on despotic regimes, founded on tyranny, who impose the use of terror and fear as tools to control the masses, it is an ideology wrought with problems. In the end, every society based on such oppressive, ruthless, and unbalanced leadership, rebel’s against such a regime.
FASCIST IDEOLOGY (TRANSFORMATIONAL):
There is a second type of Socialism that is called Transformational or Nationalist Socialism (seen in the image above takes the path to the right) National Socialism (Nazism) is a totalitarian system that originated in Germany following the end of WWI. Some say it involved implementing a strong sense of nationalism, similar to communist USSR. It also implemented a dictatorial or draconian police state, brutal use of violence, disregard for human rights, and anti-Christian belief with the implementation of Darwinism. They used Darwin’s ‘Survival of the Fittest’ to justify the racial policy that subjugated or exterminated people based on the belief of being inferior. They included teachers or any other community leaders who might teach others and bring about rebellion against the Fascist leadership. The term ‘Nazi’ is a contraction of the full party name, ‘National Socialist German Workers’ Party. Nazism, in short, is simply one of several varieties of socialism. The Nazi Party controlled Germany from 1933-1945 under Adolf Hitler and resulted in World War II and the largest genocide against the Jewish people in history.
The key to understanding National-Socialism or Fascism is in the fact that Fascists make it appear that private ownership of businesses remains, but in practice it is merely a facade. In fact, according to the Misses Institute in Austria, the main difference between communism and national-socialism (fascism) is that the fascist’s “maintains private ownership of the means of production and keeps the appearance of ordinary prices, wages, and markets.” But in reality, the government directs production decisions, curbs entrepreneurship and the labor market, and determines wages and interest rates by central authority. “Market exchange, is only a sham.” Therefore, Fascism is nothing more than another form of a Socialist System with the mere appearance of private ownership. Those privately owned businesses are subject to being taken and redistributed to someone else if the government so chooses. Therefore, it requires extensive government control of private property, businesses, and all other forms of possessions. In addition, just like communism, fascism forbids free speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, and all other forms of freedom that we take for granted in the United States of America today. Communist and Socialist supporters like to pretend that Fascism or Nazism was not socialist; however, the facts show that it is. College’s, Universities, and public schools have tried to cover up the truth behind fascism, and make American youth believe that it is ‘right-wing conservative.’ However, it’s very foundation is based on communist and socialist ideology. It would be like calling China a capitalist country, but it truly is not. The government owns all land and simply leases it out to investors. Business owners can lease property and run a business, but they are not free to do as they please. The government controls what they say, what they do, and all other aspects of daily life. Therefore, it falls far short of being a true capitalist country. China adopted this idea, likely from the fascist model of business. Fascism and communism both promote anti-Semitism. After all, anti-Semitism was advocated by the Father of Communism himself, Karl Marx.
Today, America’s College’s and Universities don’t like to label Nazism as socialist. Instead, they try to paint it as “right-wing” conservative. However, Nazism was born out of the ‘Nationalist-Socialist” ideology; whereas, right-wing conservatism would fall into the category of anarchy. After all, the more conservative one is, the more they fight for small government, hands off approaches to business, less government involvement in the lives of its people, free speech, freedom of religion, and so forth. In fact, according to Merriam Webster, the definition of anarchy is the absence of government. A state of lawlessness or political disorder due to the absence of governmental authority. Therefore, conservatism is the opposite of Nazism or Nationalist-Socialism.
