This is not a new concept as historians and many writers have tossed this issue around for years. Religon at its best is a prolife frame of reference that serves to foster mans development. All religions with rare exceptions have a point of exclusion. The rare exception is the Cult of Angels that incorporates elements.
Communism is a failed idea that has been proven deadly in each application. We here
the convenient excuses blaming whomever the dolts want to castigate on a personal level. Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot are all to blame for the diasasters, but this is unrealistic as Communism never seems to get one right.
Amusingly, the true believers attempt to paint someone like Chomsky or Finkelstein in another light. "Israeli Jews are a parasitic class" is a famous Finky quote. The fact that he recyles Soviet Propoganda uses communist jargon tells us all we need to know. Much like the Holocaust deniers he attempts to place absurd value in a minor point. For example if Weisel read Kant in Yiddish is a minor point. However, much like the 9-11 Freaks and the Holocaust deniers who are his fans they attempt to build a conspiracy on a non-issue. The fact is Finky was proven wrong as a copy of the book he claims doesn't exist sits in the Harvard Libray published in 1929.
Rather, than ditch a failed idea Commies cling to the hope that the next application will get it right. Meanwhile they live in a fantasy world where the fact that there is poverty in the USA is a problem. They merely ignore more severe aspects of poverty in Communist societies.
Communism has its high priests that act as televangelists. Want to hear a sermon by Noam Chimpanzee well you can for $12.00. You can buy his illucid musings for $18 and as Barnum said a sucker is born every minute. Chimpanzee likes to call himself a dissident, only his dissent is from reality itself. He may appear in a friendly forum like Democracy Now with the ever clueless Amy Goodman.However, Chomsky steers clear of aggressive scrutiny. The truth is he is petrified of what a Sean Hannity or even a Monica Crowley would do. They could pull out series of quotes that show Chomsky is in fact a moron. However, the true believers keep buying the product and Chimpanzee keeps counting the money.
Communists disparage genuine Christians who are their superior in every way. Genuine Christians ( Not the nuts of Liberation Idiocy) build schools, community resources
orphanages and rebuild lives. Communists build Killing Feilds, Gulags and when people want to rebuild their lives they become Boat People. Still the faithful cling to a elitist veneer of self deluded superiority. What this elitist delusion is based upon remains a mystery. Lab rats seem to be more capable of learning than communists. However, they delude themselves into claiming they know what is best for you.
Sorry people who stick with a failed idea are merely idiots.
