Refresher Course

Thanks to Mick Gallagher.

Refresher Course

[This is written] just to clear up any misunderstandings. I thought I'd forward the Webster's New World Dictionary definitions of a few terms distorted and twisted by the wealthy owners of our public airwaves.

Why would they do that? Because they are greedy. Because they 'fear' someone, or something, will take some of their god away. Therefore, they use the airwaves to scare you about such ideologies and systems of governing. And here are those big scary systems for you to [contemplate[:

Socialism: 1. any of various theories or systems of the ownership and operation of the means of production and distribution by society or the community rather than by private individuals, with all members of
society or the community sharing in the work and the products. 2. a political movement for establishing such a system. The doctrines, methods,etc of the socialist parties. 3. the stage of society, in Marxist doctrine, coming between the capitalist stage and the communist stage (see COMMUNISM, sense2), in which private ownership of the means of production and distribution has been eliminated.

Fascism: the doctrines, methods, or movement of the fascisti. 2. {sometimes} a system of government characterized by rigid one-party dictatorship, forcible suppression of opposition, private economic
enterprise under centralized governmental control, belligerent nationalism, racism, and militarism, etc.; first instituted in Italy in 1922. 3. a) a political movement based on such doctrines and policies b) fascist behavior See also "Nazi.")

Communism: 1. an economic theory or system based on the ownership of all property by the community as a whole. 2. a hypothetical stage of socialism, as formulated by Marx, Engels, Lenin, and others, to be characterized by a classless and stateless society and the equal distribution of economic goods; to be achieved by revolutionary and dictatorial, rather than gradualistic [evolutionary], means.

One last note: Remember that there are many actual examples of active socialism in our capitalistic society: The Fire Dept., the Police Dept., the military and it's healthcare system, etc.

No one is even being tortured by [these socialistic systems]. Now, see, that wasn't so dark & evil, was it? Now, think about the last eight years: And think which definition these more closely fit, where we have been heading.

A True Christian Community, in the New Testament, [was identified by its possession of the] Mind [and] heart of Jesus [Christ]. [This kind of community] is more closely aligned with socialism, and more evolved modes of communism. But the powerful people want you to fear these systems. And no, they are not perfect either, because of [the hu]man's propensity towards our lowest nature-- greed,etc. But today's Western style capitalism, if you take a good, hard, sober look at the realities of it, well, I'll say [simply] it works extremely well for the wealthiest ten to twenty percent. And below that [small economic demographic,], well, [it doesn't help much.] one more thing to prove that socialism is what we have now for the rich, and so called "free enterprise" for the working class. [This is] proof that socialism will outlive capitalism, because "we the people" have to bail out the [evil and ignorant people] at the top, after their scams and dime-dancing are through, and they've sold us out.
