World-Wide Socialism (revisited)

Source: Art Sadlier, Tuesday March 1st 2011

The United Nations has embarked on a program to establish world-wide socialism. The one world government the United Nations has in mind is a socialist state. The following news clip clearly demonstrates this to be the UN objective.

“The United Nations, which marked a ‘World Day of Social Justice’ on Sunday, Feb. 20, 2011, is calling for a ‘new era’ in which all the people of the world have access to basic services and ‘decently’ paying jobs.”

“According to the U.N., 80 percent of the world’s people lack ‘adequate social protection’.”

“To eliminate the problem, the U.N. is trying to establish what it calls a global ‘social protection floor.’  Such a ‘floor’ would guarantee food security, health services for all, and old-age pensions for the 80 percent of the world’s people believed to lack such protections.”

“In his message urging ‘social justice for all,’ U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said, ‘No one should live below a certain income level, and everyone should have access to essential public services such as water and sanitation, health and education’.” The word “social justice” is a code word for communism.

No clearer definition of socialism could possibly be given, it is clearly a world-wide government based on socialism that the UN seeks. Such objectives at first glance seem to be noble and good. The problem is that history teaches that socialism has never delivered on any of these promises. In fact history clearly teaches that socialism delivers poverty, persecution, oppression, imprisonment, hunger, mass murder, destruction and a totalitarian state with a totalitarian dictator. Socialism is incapable of producing anything else, let the record speak for itself. Sooner or later socialism pulls everything down, whether it is morality or the family or law or property or productivity or life itself.

I believe that there is a world-wide socialist government coming and what the United Nations is now advocating, is setting the stage for the arrival of the Kingdom of the beast.

The kingdom of Antichrist is a world-wide socialist state. The scriptures reveal this to be the case. In Revelation we have a description of the kingdom of the beast. That description reveals classic socialism. "And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name" (Revelation 13:15-17).

Notice first that in this kingdom all are included, there are no exceptions. The government is the final and absolute authority; that is classic socialism. We see that which each person can buy or sell is controlled by government. Everyone in the whole world will receive the same goods and services. That is exactly what the United Nations is now proposing, that is communism. Remember that communism is the final phase in the destination of socialism.

We can assume a number of things about the socialist kingdom of Antichrist. We can assume them because they are always true of socialism and communism whenever they have been found or wherever they are found in the world today.

The first fact about socialism is that in its final stages it resorts to mass murder to consolidate its power. History tells us that Stalin murdered 20-50 million men and women in the process of consolidating his Socialist Soviet Republic. History also tells us that Hitler murdered 20 million men and women as he consolidated his Socialist National State. History tells that Mao murdered 40 million men and women as he consolidated his Chinese Communist State. There are other cases as well, not only did they murder but they persecuted and imprisoned and tortured and abused multiplied millions, history records the story. The US congressional records show that 150 million peoples have been slaughtered by the socialists, in the last century, in times of peace.

We see that this will be true of the socialist dictatorship of Antichrist. The book of Revelation reveals that ¼ to ½ half of the world’s population will be slaughtered by Antichrist as he seeks to consolidate his socialist kingdom. He will slaughter those who stand in the way of his socialist system, tribulation Saints, Jews, Muslims and Capitalists alike will be put to the sword by him, for refusal to conform to his socialist agenda. That will include all who refuse accept his program and receive the certifying mark of the beast.

The second fact about socialism is that it always breeds despotic dictators. The masses have only one purpose and that is to serve the dictator. Oppression is the center piece of socialism, history records it. The masses will finally rise up and throw off the repression of socialism if given an opportunity. Socialism can only be maintained at the barrel of a gun. Again we have a reflection of the kingdom of the beast.

We have some terrifying quotations concerning socialism.

John Stormer;  author of ‘None dare call it treason,’ “In those countries where socialism has control, millions have been murdered; the legacy of communism is that it is the greatest killing machine in all of human history.”

Hon. Ed Meese;  former US Attorney General. “Millions have been enslaved, imprisoned and oppressed by communism; instead of the utopian society you have murder and enslavement.”

Howard Philips;  former director of the US Office of Economic Opportunity. “You would think that if the 20th, century was the most murderous of centuries, everyone would say, ‘Let’s find out why?’ The truth is that it is forbidden to ask that question because the ideas that brought about those murders are still being taught in our schools and colleges today. There are thousands of socialist and hard core communist professors in our colleges today.”

Jim Simpson; former White House Staff Economist. “The communists are responsible for the mass murder of more people in times of peace than in all the wars of human history combined.”

History has proven beyond any shadow of a doubt that the free enterprise system provides more for anyone willing to work (a biblical injunction) for it, than any other system.

The question arises as to why would the left be pushing their socialist agenda on the world? There are only two possibilities. They are ignorant or they are evil. If you read the books and speeches of the left you will be see without doubt that the socialists are tearing down the present structure of society to build their brave new socialist world. And they are very close to reaching their goal.

Some mistakenly say that communism is dead. Today communism is very much alive, though sometimes under a different name. Most people under fifty years of age have no idea what communism means. Many of those who promote socialism do not understand the end result of socialism.   

Today 1½ billion people live in communist countries. The openly communist countries are China, Cuba, North Korea and Viet Nam. There are six countries in Latin America which are openly communist. The force behind Russia is still communism. Many countries of the world are heading down the path of socialism which ends up ultimately in a communist state. Europe is deeply entrenched in socialism and being prepared to accept the socialism that Antichrist will deliver.

America is heading down the road to socialism at a breakneck pace. There is no doubt in my mind that when Americans wake up and realize what socialism means to them, they will demonstrate and rebel against the authority.  The authority will do what socialists always do when their agenda is challenged. American blood will flow in the streets.

The main stream media has imbibed deeply of socialism. As a result of this influence, the political parties, both Liberal and Conservative, Democratic and Republican have shifted to the left of center on the political spectrum.  The Liberals and Democrats have shifted into socialism. There is now no opposition to socialism. The socialist agenda has infiltrated both mainstream America and Canada.

In 1958 a book was published entitled, “The Naked Communist” by Cleon Skowsky. This book outlined the communist agenda; it lists 45 communist goals to subvert America from within. Every one of those goals has been accomplished and no one seems to notice or care. For the last 50 years these people have been (no doubt some in high places) behind the scenes to move the people and the culture in a direction that is designed to destroy it.

Some of these goals are:

Goal # 28: “To eliminate prayer in the schools on the grounds that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

Goal # 40: “Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.” The family is the basic building block of society and its removal will bring society down.

Goal # 17: “Gain control of the schools and use them as a transmission belt for the promotion of socialism. Soften the curriculum.”

Goal # 24: “Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them ‘censorship’ and a violation of free speech and a free press.”

Goal # 25: “Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography in books, magazines, motion pictures and TV.”

Goal # 26: “Present homosexuality, degeneracy, and promiscuity as normal, natural and healthy.”

Goal # 20-21: “Infiltrate the press and gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.”

Goal # 27: “Infiltrate revealed religion and replace it with ‘social’ religion and discredit the bible.”

 Another objective is to use the feminist movement to get the father out of the home and allow the state to take his place. When Hillary Clinton quoted the socialist line by saying, “It takes village to raise a child,” she understands that the village is the state. The state intervenes in the life of the child through indoctrination in the school system. Lennon said, “Give me a child for four years and the influence will not be broken.” Under socialism the state is the final and ultimate authority and seeks total control of all of society. Freedom is eliminated altogether.

The environmental movement has been taken over by those who are seeking to destroy productivity. Before a new order can be established the old must be torn down. The brave new world they talk about is the world of socialism.

Socialism makes the state the final authority in place of God. It makes man an animal instead of one made in the image of God and accountable to God. Man can be used and manipulated or destroyed at the whim of a dictator. We see this in action in the kingdom of the beast, “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed” (Revelation 13:15).  

That explains why Satan has chosen socialism as the form of government for his kingdom of the beast. Blessing comes from the state instead of God. The states blessings are in the form of welfare and social benefits. The state is looked to and worshipped in place of God. Satan’s plan is to have Antichrist as head of the state and be worshipped in the place of God.

Nietzsche tried to prove to the world that God was dead. Darwin tried to prove to the world that man is a part of the animal kingdom.

Karl Marx realized that the philosophies of these two men would legitimize his own philosophy of communism. He knew that their ideas would justify the brutality and slaughter that would be necessary to implement communism world-wide. Karl Marx attempted to force communism on the world by revolution. In 1883 when he died only nine people showed up for his funeral. The assumption was that communism was dead.

In October of that same year another group met with a different approach to establishing communism. This group was called the Fabien Socialist Society. They decided they would bring socialism to the world incrementally, a little at a time. They called it socialism by evolution instead of revolution. That is what has been going on for the last fifty years in America and Canada.

Communism is the final destination of Socialism; it is the final destination of the road that much of the world is now travelling on. Socialism is best described by two words, “Big Government.” Government controls everything and they use that control to take things from one person and give them to another. That is the program of Antichrist as found in Revelation 13:15 (see above). Big governments will become a one world government.

In order to better facilitate this objective they change the name from communism to socialism. George Bernard Shaw said, “I am a communist but I am not a member of the communist party.” The symbol of the Fabien society is a wolf in sheep clothes.

Whitaker Chambers said, “Communism succeeds because most people who promote communism are not communists. If socialists were called communists it would not succeed.”

The word socialism is a substitute for the word communism and the word progressive is a substitute for socialism. Social action and social justice are code words for socialism. Few understand what is happening. Many just have a good feeling about helping the poor of the world by bringing about the brave new world of socialism. They do not understand that socialism ultimately destroys instead of helping.

The seed is being sown; the groundwork is taking place for the coming kingdom of the beast, a socialist kingdom.

Islam is not the program of Antichrist, which some are proclaiming today. Islam will be destroyed by God in the battle described in Ezekiel chapters 38-39. Ezekiel tells us about that destruction which takes place very early in the tribulation period, “And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel” (Ezekiel 39:2). That destruction is not limited to those on the battle field, but extends to their homelands. Ezekiel 39:6, “And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.” Islam will be decimated, only to have Antichrist further attack it, as he removes all opposition to his socialist world empire.

When Antichrist comes he will deceive Israel, Christendom, the nations and Islam. Islam will be temporarily deceived, thinking that Antichrist is their Mahdi or Messiah. There are many similarities between the Mahdi and the Antichrist as taught in the Bible and in the Koran respectively. When Islam realizes that they have been deceived the war of Ezekiel 38-39 will take place.

Europe has been on the road to socialism for some time and is now being prepared for the socialist dictatorship of the beast. The whole world is being prepared for this brave new socialist world of Antichrist. All those who stand in the way will be slaughtered. That will include those who resist among the Jews and Islam and the tribulation Saints. The world will be almost de-populated.
