Every day since Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez brought to the public her Green New Deal last week (I write this on the morning of February 12th, 2019) I have been attacked by people almost every day. It seems some Manitobans and Ontarioans (who obviously aren’t Americans, but that seems lost on them) all of the sudden support Socialism and with the media’s glamorization of AOC, want to be vocal about it. It breaks my heart and troubles me.
It has really gotten me down how many people I know have shown even the smallest amount of support for Socialism over the last 6 days. Seriously. It just shows that there is much education on 20th-century history still to be done. We’re living in a post-literate culture, people don’t read, and when you hear them read out loud, you can tell. People have little clue to the absolute horror that Socialism is. I think Peterson spoke of this before, how there is for some shocking reason around two generations between the fall of the USSR and now who are utterly ignorant of the horrors of Socialism. I have a friend who was born in 1985 and is well versed in Nazi history, but he had never heard of the Holodomor until my Godfather or I had mentioned it. No level of Socialism is good, every act must be voluntary. Socialism is demonic, we know this because we can know a tree by the fruit that it bears.
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” -Matthew 7:15-20, KJV
