Nomenklatura on the Rise

by baldilocks I just spent more minutes than I should have arguing with a Twitter-bot about Jesus the Christ, so I'm a little late today. (Sorry, Peter.) As an excuse In my defense, I do like to keep my arguing skills up and hadn't done it in while. It's like riding a bicycle! Anyway, like … Continue reading Nomenklatura on the Rise

Marxism and China

In a rather neck-snapping series of pronouncements, Marxism has moved to center stage in China. On the 200th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx, Chinese President Xi Jinping has launched a high-profile campaign lauding the importance of the German philosopher. Communist Party newspapers hailed Das Kapital, Marx’s critique of capitalism, as “holy scripture.” State … Continue reading Marxism and China

Humanity, Thy Name is Tribal War

by baldilocks Sitting in for Fausta. I’ve been putting off commentary on this. White South African farmers will be removed from their land after a landslide vote in parliament. The country's constitution is now likely to be amended to allow for the confiscation of white-owned land without compensation, following a motion brought by radical Marxist opposition leader … Continue reading Humanity, Thy Name is Tribal War

Review: Karl Marx City

By John Ruberry If you know a millennial who craves communism, then I suggest that you sit that person down to watch the documentary Karl Marx City by Petra Epperlein and her husband, Michael Tucker, which was released last year. Epperlein was born in 1966 in Karl-Marx-Stadt, East Germany, which is now, as it was … Continue reading Review: Karl Marx City

Pouring the Concrete for Marxism’s Earthly Foundation

by baldilocks Back in May, I said this. When we think of lies, we tend to think of them as linear one-dimensional, straight-out falsehoods: 2+2=57, for example—a thing so outrageously false as to be laughable. And this.  The Devil is building his multi-dimensional kingdom of lies—in counterpoint to the Kingdom of God. And in imitation … Continue reading Pouring the Concrete for Marxism’s Earthly Foundation

March Madness: The Big Dance of Radicals

By John Ruberry Later today a committee will reveal the 68 teams that will participate NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament, which is commonly known as the Big Dance or March Madness. All of the games will be televised--and during halftime, public-service ads about the participating teams will air--they will be milquetoast pieces--focusing how each school contributes … Continue reading March Madness: The Big Dance of Radicals

The Obamacare Jiza on the Catholic Church

Many years ago I remember watching a mini-series that is largely forgotten on Peter the Great with Maximilian Schell in the title role. There was a key scene in the third episode that always stuck with me. Peter was looking for funds to build a fleet and expand his army and decided he would tax … Continue reading The Obamacare Jiza on the Catholic Church

If you start from the idea they are all Marxists…: Lech Walesa edition

There are certain stories you read that just make your jaw drop: Polish officials requested that Walesa accept the Medal of Freedom on behalf of Jan Karski, a member of the Polish Underground during World War II who was being honored posthumously this week. The request makes sense. Walesa and Karski shared a burning desire … Continue reading If you start from the idea they are all Marxists…: Lech Walesa edition

I was wrong about the Nation and Katrina Vanden Heuvel

It was a few years ago when I first saw Katrina Vanden Heuvel on panel shows. I was shocked.

But has time has gone on … Continue reading I was wrong about the Nation and Katrina Vanden Heuvel

Normalizing Communism Deb is only slightly off

This article at Nice Deb yesterday caught my eye: Russian TV covers the growing Marxist movement in America – it’s not often that a media outlet calls “progressives” what they really are, as RT America does, here. I'm not going to embed the video as it's Deb's story, but both the story and Deb's headline … Continue reading Normalizing Communism Deb is only slightly off
