This is what collectivism always really looks like. The “benevolent leader or leaders ” live like kings of old, with the power of life and death, and the rest, divided and conquered, fight over the scraps.
Don’t for a second let the people selling this shit religion tell you that this is the exception and what they want is different. Especially when they allude to the successes of their government religion in other places. The fact of the matter is that these things, while they work for a while, eventually end up in disaster. And when things go wrong, it is always the fault of others and external forces. That’s why these people tell you with a serious face that having an entity rob the productive at gun point, to buy votes from people quite content to fight over the scraps they get handed as part of this idiotic setup, as long as they feel others are made to suffer as well, can work if the “right people” are in charge.
The Kims, Castros, Pol Pot, Lenin, Stalin, and those that followed them, Mao and his successors, and so on and on, all are excused, along with the over 100 million killed and billions made to live in misery that the collectivist movement have caused, with the final insult being the admonition that the right people in charge would finally make it work. Well, the fact is Obama was also lauded as “the right people”, and only a real partisan hack with an agenda would pretend that those of us that point out that the only thing Obama and his cronies have really managed to accomplish was to make things worse, are wrong in saying so. As always, the way to validate this is to ask yourself what the reaction would be if someone with an R next to their name had done any of the things the media and the left have let pass when done by Obama, Hillary, or any of the other aristocrats of the left.
Contrary to what the people driven by greed and jealousy of what others have come to believe, the truth is that collectivism can’t create heaven on earth. No matter how well intentioned and what promises it makes, in the end it can only provide hell on earth. At least those pushing the old time religions knew better than to promise what couldn’t be delivered ever would happen in an afterlife.
