2021 May 1,The Black Book of Communism
« on: May 01, 2021, 01:17:17 PM »
I have been giving you links to videos and articles but I have found a book. This book is out of print but it has been made available on the internet for viewing and downloading. One important thing to understand about Marxism is that they view progress as Capitalism, the overthrow of Capitalism, Socialism as a training ground for Communism. To make this transition, all traces of God must be removed from society and replace with the state as the provider of your needs. For this you give up all freedom and self determination. How has this turned out? From the book a count of deaths.

U.S.S.R.: 20 million deaths
China: 65 million deaths
Vietnam:1 million deaths
North Korea: 2 million deaths
Cambodia: 2 million deaths
Eastern Europe: 1 million deaths
Latin America: 150,000 deaths
Africa: 1.7 million deaths
Afghanistan: 1.5 million deaths
The international Communist movement and Communist parties not in
power: about 10,000 deaths

Note that the Nazi party is only blamed for between 6 and 7 million people depending on the numbers you look at. Possibly the Nazi party should have been added to the list because it was called National Socialist German Workers' Party and had some element of Socialism, it never went all the way to becoming Communist so it was omitted from the list.

The deaths were the result of several factors. Sometimes it was purges of those who disagree with the government. Other times it was because of the government seizing the means of production resulting in starvation of the population. Russia was noted for collecting all the food in the country side with force to feed the cities. Farmers sometimes managed to hide a small amount of food away from the government but most of the time it was barely enough to stay alive.

A few countries have escaped before they were totally destroyed. England was one that returned to sanity when Margret Thatcher came to power and reversed the trend. Others like Denmark aren't really socialist but instead are Capitalist with the government providing many benefits. Remember that the people and not the companies pay for these benefits so the tax rate is much higher than you would pay in the U.S.. Also, while the government may provide a service you need, you might decide to use something in the privates sector instead. The differences between the two paths are explained in this video.

I have been reading other books on Marxism and haven't had time to read this one but skimming it shows that it contains a good deal of useful information about the dangers of a Marxist government. Once Marxism passes a certain point it becomes nearly impossible to avoid a collapse of the country. Yes, Russia and China seem to have recovered by allowing a capitalistic element with government guidance to exist but both countries still lack persona freedom and may never regain that.
