Anarchy has always been a favorite term of the malcontent youth around the world. As cool and hip as the word seems to the youth, the idea of anarchy is a completely bottomless as the utopian idea of communism. In fact they go hand and hand. Let me explain.
Civil society requires a mostly self governed people working together to protect themselves, educate themselves, and promote themselves through a locally elected civic governing body. The intention of local government is to provide organization to people in full view of their community. In a free society, individuals can not be expected to agree on everything. The temporary members of the local governing body are elected to bear the burden of decision making for the local electorate.
Amongst the governed their will always be people that disagree. Amongst those that disagree, there will be a small percentage of malcontents. The malcontents disagree with the majority and exist in their own elite world. They often try to manipulate the majority into following their elite view. In most cases the malcontents collect with like minded malcontents. They often provoke others within the civil society that may disagree with the current governing body. These provocateurs are the agitators or the community organizers.
This is obviously a simple example of the civil society but it will serve as a good start to our explanation. So how does the anarchist and the communist fit into this? Well in most cases the anarchist and the communist is the malcontent. Similarly they are both discontent with the current civil arrangement. There is a difference and it is very important to note. Defining these two types of malcontents are obvious trying to contain a nebulous entity which is understandable considering they are often principle-less.
Let’s start with the definitions from dictionary.com:
Communist: a person who is regarded as supporting politically leftist or subversive causes.
A communist system is that of a communal organization. The rights of the people are owned by the state and provided through governing institutions. These rights are determined by a politburo of elected elite. In the perfect utopian vision, a nation or world under communism yields a harmonious hegemony where all people are equal and guaranteed equal results. There is no poverty and all is grand.
We all know that equal results are impossible and it is the antithesis of nature considering that no human being is created with all the same attributes. Individuality is evident in nature.
Anarchist: a person who seeks to overturn by violence all constituted forms and institutions of society and government, with no purpose of establishing any other system of order in the place of that destroyed.
It would be pointless to outline in detail an anarchist system since they are completely against any type of institution or civic government. Instead they wish for all people to be able to do as they wish. Anarchists often operate in mobs which don’t wish to solve problems but rather to ignore them.
These two groups are obviously different but always work together when discontent settles within a society for whatever reason whether it is economic hardship, war, etc. It is important to mention that there are indefinable layers of these two groups. It can be described that Communists exist in a socialist category as the anarchist exist in a libertarian category. In the past we have seen diagrams that have described the scale of ideological nature. Some you may be familiar with.
Governing Scale: used to determine type of government
Ideological Scatter: used to determine ideology
You may have not seen the Lantern scale because… well… it is a Lanterns of Liberty concept.
This scale represents the societal ideological balance. Both extremes of anarchy and communism bring about a totalitarian state. Both societal ideological goals are unachievable and require people to be perfect. In the Communist system, the politburo needs to be made up of angelic figures that only serve the people. In an Anarchist system, all people must be angelic in order for society not to break down. We all know that people are generally self serving individuals and they will act accordingly.
So how does the Lantern Scale represent societal make up? When society begins to break down, the malcontents rise to the top and bring about the destruction of the civil society. When this occurs, the former civil majority will sacrifice its liberty to achieve some sort of civility. They will then elect any charismatic leader that promises to achieve the peace and civility they desire.
Well let’s look at past history for evidence of this? In our early American history, the American people self governed for the most part amongst their local establishments and communities. Once hardship came in the 1920’s and 1930’s charismatic leaders promised protection from hardship. Franklin D Roosevelt utilized the full might of the federal government to ease the people’s concerns after the American economic system began cavitating due to failing Woodrow Wilson and Herbert Hoover policies. Franklin D Roosevelt utilized the malcontents that rose up from the Great Depression. John Maynard Keynes and activist leaders like Harry W. Laidler, Jack London, Norman Thomas, Upton Sinclair, and J.G. Phelps Stokes of the Socialist Labor Party pointed out the ills of the free market system. Along with this group and the migrated Frankfurt Marxists, the American education system was molded into a socialist education system. All of these intellectual elites were invoked by the leader of the socialist revolution at the time.
“Give me just one generation of youth, and I'll transform the whole world.” Vladimir Ilyruch Lenin
Another point in history was the fall of Russia in 1917. Anarchists fought alongside of the Bolsheviks to overthrow the Czar in the October Revolution. Once the government had toppled they turned on each other and the Bolsheviks prevailed.
So how is this explanation relevant in our current situation? We are currently seeing a revolution much like that of the Russian Revolution in 1917. There many parallels including the statement by American Communist leader Van Jones who has promised an October Surprise reminiscent of Trotsky’s and Lenin’s October Revolution that can be anecdotal but seem all too familiar with Van Jones’ messages which have heavy tones of Communist lingo.
The malcontents of the Anarchist movement and the Communist movement have entered the battle ground on Wall Street against the capitalists. Most of these malcontents are students who have been activated by their socialist mentors. The message seems to be the same at the surface but the ideology is diametrically opposed. Above these malcontents is the Progressive/Communist leaders that disguise themselves as union leaders, environmental advocates, civil rights voices, and Hollywood actors are fanning the flames with their propaganda. We have seen Roseanne Barr come out in favor of beheading the capitalists.
“I first would allow the guilty bankers to pay… back anything over 100 million in personal wealth because I believe in a maximum wage of 100 million dollars and if they’re unable to live on that amount then they should go to the reeducation camps, and if that doesn’t help, then be beheaded.”
We have also seen union leaders in favor of economic collapse.
Lanterns of Liberty has also outlined the infrastructure that is orchestrating the events around the country. Some of the organizations that are behind the movement are as follows:
• AFL-CIO (AFSCME)
• United NY
• Strong Economy for All Coalition
• Working Families Party
• TWU Local 100
• SEIU 1199
• CWA 1109
• Communications Workers of America
• CWA Local 1180
• United Auto Workers
• United Federation of Teachers
• Professional Staff Congress - CUNY
• National Nurses United
• Writers Guild East
• Community Voices Heard
• Alliance for Quality Education
• New York Communities for Change
• Coalition for the Homeless
• Neighborhood Economic Development Advocacy Project (NEDAP)
• The Job Party
• NYC Coalition for Educational Justice
• The Mirabal Sisters Cultural and Community Center
• The New Deal for New York Campaign
• National People's Action
• Human Services Council
• Labor-Religion Coalition of New York State
• Citizen Action of NY
• Common Cause NY
• New Bottom Line
• Tenants & Neighbors
• Democracy for NYC
• Resource Generation
• Tenants PAC
• Teachers Unite
Most of these organizations are arms of the George Soros Open Society network. This network is trying to deliver a one world government poised to eliminate capitalism. Seems a little extreme? I would like to think that the Russians in 1917 thought they would never see the rise of the murderous Communist regime as well as the Jews seeing the rise of the Nazi Fascists. As discussed in previous posts, the goal of Communism always leads to fascism. The Soviet Union and 1930’s Germany is evidence of this. Although the Soviet Union tight-roped the line of Marx’s planks of the Communist Manifesto and Lenin and Trotsky’s social justice engineering, it led way to the murderous dictatorships of Stalin. Represented as a government run economy, elected politicians ran the institutions rather than business owners or oligarchs. Hitler eradicated the Communists and instituted his delusional murderous false utopian German Reich.
So now that we have made some similarities between the Russian Revolution, lets look at some of the demands of the Occupy Wall Street rabble rousers listed on their website httpoccupywallstreet.org on October 5th, 2011.
Demand one: Restoration of the living wage. This demand can only be met by ending “Freetrade” by re-imposing trade tariffs on all imported goods entering the American market to level the playing field for domestic family farming and domestic manufacturing as most nations that are dumping cheap products onto the American market have radical wage and environmental regulation advantages. Another policy that must be instituted is raise the minimum wage to twenty dollars an hr.
Demand two: Institute a universal single payer healthcare system. To do this all private insurers must be banned from the healthcare market as their only effect on the health of patients is to take money away from doctors, nurses and hospitals preventing them from doing their jobs and hand that money to wall st. investors.
Demand three: Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.
Demand four: Free college education.
Demand five: Begin a fast track process to bring the fossil fuel economy to an end while at the same bringing the alternative energy economy up to energy demand.
Demand six: One trillion dollars in infrastructure (Water, Sewer, Rail, Roads and Bridges and Electrical Grid) spending now.
Demand seven: One trillion dollars in ecological restoration planting forests, reestablishing wetlands and the natural flow of river systems and decommissioning of all of America’s nuclear power plants.
Demand eight: Racial and gender equal rights amendment.
Demand nine: Open borders migration. anyone can travel anywhere to work and live.
Demand ten: Bring American elections up to international standards of a paper ballot precinct counted and recounted in front of an independent and party observers system.
Demand eleven: Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all. Debt forgiveness of sovereign debt, commercial loans, home mortgages, home equity loans, credit card debt, student loans and personal loans now! All debt must be stricken from the “Books.” World Bank Loans to all Nations, Bank to Bank Debt and all Bonds and Margin Call Debt in the stock market including all Derivatives or Credit Default Swaps, all 65 trillion dollars of them must also be stricken from the “Books.” And I don’t mean debt that is in default, I mean all debt on the entire planet period.
Demand twelve: Outlaw all credit reporting agencies.
Demand thirteen: Allow all workers to sign a ballot at any time during a union organizing campaign or at any time that represents their yeah or nay to having a union represent them in collective bargaining or to form a union.
We can all see that this is unsustainable. This is the Communist utopia. The anarchists think that the individual citizen will regulate this utopia and the Communist wishes that a powerful central government will. When these demands do not come to fruition, there will be violence. We will see what Roseanne Barr desires as a revolution similar to the French Revolution where people will be executed in the streets. This is it folks. This is the final stand of American that Lanterns of Liberty has been warning about. Once anarchy from the revolution breaks out, the American people will surrender their liberties to bring peace. At this point the first official American totalitarian government will rule under Marshall Law.
