Those who doubted Obama’s immersion in Marxism now have a perfect window into his soul — namely, in the form of the stunning class warfare remarks he recently made in Roanoke, Virginia.
We must grasp, however, what Marxism is and what it is not. Marxism is not a political philosophy to help the poor at the expense of the rich, and it is not a design for a utopian future. Marxism is simply a Heart of Darkness, a Siamese twin of Nazism, a curse on all humanity committed to three themes: (1) hatred, (2) misery, and (3) lying.
Marxism is neither a science nor a system of belief. It is a rationale for seizing power and terrorizing all those who are not its cadres. Marxism — English Socialism, or “Ingsoc” — was the secular religion of George Orwell’s Oceania. In Orwell’s masterpiece, 1984, the interrogator of Winston Smith explains the goals of Ingsoc:
“Power is not a mean, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes a revolution in order to establish a dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power.”
