Yes, it’s always kumbaya before the killing starts. That’s what socialism is. Saul Alinsky stated it this way, “…the victory is in the conflict.” I don’t care what you call it. Socialism is always the gateway to either Fascism or Communism. It always leads to totalitarian rule and large bureaucratic central planning.
So, in this light, Fascism would be to the right of Communism. But they both view the necessity of large central bureaucracies that lord over the masses. In order to gain power, these revolutions necessitated mass deaths. Simply, Communism owns everything, and Fascism regulates everything to death.
Communist revolutions have always led to mass deaths in every country where it has been attempted or implemented. One of the most well-known examples is the Soviet Union under Joseph Stalin, where millions of people were killed or died due to famine, forced labor, purging political opposition, and other brutal policies. It is estimated that between 20 and 30 million people died during Stalin’s rule.
Other examples include the Chinese cultural revolution under Mao Zedong, which resulted in the deaths of millions of people, and the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia, which led to the slaughter of as many as 2 million people. First, the kumbaya. It’s always kumbaya before the killing starts.

Rare is an understatement!

I only know of two examples where this didn’t happen, so it is extremely rare. But when it did, it was under completely different circumstances and with different results. So, while rare, the outcome was never the same.
One example is the revolution in Kerala, India, in the 1950s and 60s, which led to the establishment of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) But, this is why it’s different. There was still a democratically elected government. Yet, the government was Marxist at the time. Because of the democratically elected government, there were only violent clashes between factions. But it did not result in large-scale deaths or repression.
Another example is the Sandinista revolution in Nicaragua during the 1970s and 1980s which the Sandinista National Liberation Front, a leftist political organization with strong Marxist roots, led. While there were some violent confrontations between the Sandinistas and the U.S.-backed Contras, the revolution did not result in mass deaths or repression on the scale of other communist revolutions.
Sidenote: The spread of communism and the establishment of communist governments in the aftermath of World War 1 played a role in shaping international relations and contributing to the tensions that led to World War 2. Hence, in World War II, we have the fascists fighting the communists over what a totalitarian government would look like.

The Kumbaya!

I remember my mom once telling me that the philosophy of socialism or communism was beautiful. But it just didn’t work that way in real life. Marx viewed it as a struggle between labor and business because he felt the people were oppressed. Or, the people, as in power to the people, were mistreated. So, the ‘kumbaya’ period sought to gain power over business and also the people.
Entitlement has always been a major wedge. We’ll take care of you; they say…you are mistreated. You see, everyone will own everything, and it will be kumbaya. We will all share, and everyone will be equal. It just never works that way because someone needs to be in charge. And it’s not you.
Eventually, Marxism and its critical theory expanded to criticize just about everything. The middle class unravels and begins to destroy this class struggle, so critical theory moves on. Marxism moved on. It criticized religion; it criticized marriage, but always under the guise of someone being mistreated. And Marxists are there to help.
It led to political correctness and the battle of the sexes. Everyone was mistreated, and they would stick up for you. You just need to give up some of your liberty. Today they’ve moved on to critical race theory. We will all coexist, and it will be beautiful. Just give them control.
The problem is the Kumbaya period ends. And once we start eating smores, the killing starts, and there’s no turning back. It’s like a b-rated horror movie, but it’s real life. It’s always kumbaya before the killing starts!

The Killing Starts!

Let’s not sugarcoat it, shall we? Some will note that estimating the number of deaths caused by any conflict or event can be challenging, and the numbers presented here should be taken as approximations. Or that it’s worth noting that there may be differing opinions on the categorization of these events as “communist revolutions.”
With that said, here is a list of some of the communist revolutions that led to mass slaughters, along with some estimates of the number of deaths:

The Unthinkable:

  1. The Russian Revolution (1917) and the subsequent establishment of the Soviet Union under Joseph Stalin’s leadership. The number of deaths associated with Stalin’s regime is estimated to be between 20 and 30 million people.
  2. The Chinese Communist revolution (1949) and the subsequent establishment of the People’s Republic of China under the leadership of Mao Zedong. Estimates of the mass deaths under miles policies range from 40 to 70 million people.
  3. The Cambodian Revolution (1975) and the subsequent establishment of the Khmer Rouge regime under Poll Pot’s leadership. The exact number of deaths is difficult to determine, but estimates range from 1.7 million to 2.2 million people.
  4. The Vietnamese Revolution (1975) and the subsequent establishment of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam under the leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam. The revolution in Viet Nam spanned decades, with estimates of up to 4 million deaths.

 Mass Destuction:

  1. The North Korean Revolution (1948) and the subsequent establishment of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea under the leadership of the Workers’ Party of Korea. Estimates of the number of deaths caused by the North Korean regime vary widely, but some estimates place the number between 1 and 3 million people.
  2. The Cuban Revolution (1959) and the subsequent establishment of the communist government under Fidel Castro’s leadership. Political opposition purging continued under Che, and tens of thousands of people were killed.
  3. The Ethiopian Revolution (1974) and the subsequent establishment of a Marxist-Leninist government under the Derg regime. During the extended period of the revolution, more than 500,000 people were killed.
  4. The Afghan Revolution (1978) and the subsequent establishment of a Marxist-Leninist government under the People’s Democratic Party of Afghanistan. Including the Mujahideen, it is estimated that between 1 million and 2 million Afghans died as a result of the conflict, which also led to significant displacement and refugee flows.

Lesser Atrocities:

  1. The Mozambican Revolution (1975) and the subsequent establishment of a Marxist-Leninist government under the FRELIMO party. According to a report by the Mozambican government’s National Institute of Statistics in 2007, the conflict resulted in an estimated 1 million deaths
  2. The Grenadian Revolution (1979) and the subsequent establishment of the People’s Revolutionary Government under the leadership of the New Jewel Movement. Overall, the total number of deaths related to the conflict was relatively small compared to other regional revolutions and armed conflicts.
So we see that first comes the Kumbaya; then comes the killing. It’s always kumbaya before the killing starts!

American infiltration!

Americans can be compared to the proverbial frog in a pot of water that comes to a boil. The poor frog doesn’t notice it until it’s dead. Stop and think about that. Is this where America is? I think that’s apparent because we’re just unable to see how hot the water is yet. The same can be said for all of Europe. So where is the problem?
The problem is the Marxist school at Columbia University. And it is in Antonio Gramsci’s theory of Marxism. It is in critical theory. It is in critical race theory. And it is affectionately called Cultural Marxism. Ha ha ha, you laugh; none of this is true. But we need to wake up.
Gramsci argued that a successful Marxist revolution would avoid mass killing. It required the development of a counter-hegemonic culture that could challenge the dominant ideas and values of the ‘ruling’ class or existing social structure, including the government.
This would require a long-term process of cultural and intellectual struggle in which the working class and other oppressed groups could develop their own ideas and values and build a new social and cultural order.

Gramsci’s Kumbaya

These new ideas would infiltrate all aspects of society and avoid the slaughter. This would include all aspects of the media, i.e., the news, Hollywood, movies, newspapers, etc. So, we see why attempting to control the internet has become a focal point.
They need to control academia and education from the earliest ages, even preschool. They need to control healthcare, industry, and energy. Society will then slowly lose its identity.
Through the creation of popular organizations (community organizing) and movements (BLM and Antifa) that could challenge the power of the capitalist state. When Hillary walked on stage on election night in 2016, she called for a new stage to begin…a color revolution just as has been used in other countries. In America, it was called purple. Hillary said it herself…” red and blue together.”
But remember, it’s always Kumbaya before the killing starts!

Oh…Say! Can. You. See…Yet!

Overall, Gramsci’s Marxism emphasizes the importance of culture, ideas, and the state in understanding and overcoming capitalist domination and calls for a long-term process of cultural and political struggle to build a new socialist society.
And we don’t even notice. Everything is being used against us. Every day we’re being screamed at. They’re attempting to push us back in our proverbial hole. This is the precipice.
This takeover is very far along its path. And if it’s successful, we will be transformed into a society that we weren’t aware was coming. Like the proverbial frog in a pot of boiling water, we are being overcome slowly but surely. But now we know. Are we at the precipice yet? And can we save it?
Only time will tell… And the band played on.
