Mao More Than Ever (Boston communists say they want a revolution.)
The Boston Phoenix ^ | 07/01/05 | Mike Millard

Posted on 07/03/2005 12:41:16 PM PDT by raccoonradio

Boston communists say they want a revolution. Now they just have to agree on how to bring it about.

A pimple-faced teen with Coke-bottle glasses and a self-satisfied smirk stands near the doorway of Harvard Square’s tiny Revolution Books. He’s skinny and draped in a large black T-shirt adorned with a full-color portrait of Joseph Stalin, the iron-fisted despot responsible, directly or indirectly, for the deaths of millions.

"Stalin is my friend," the kid says, at once cockily and geekily, as he stares at the floor.

"Yeah, yeah, but we can do better than Stalin," says the guy behind the counter who, even though it’s hot, is wearing a heavy sweater under his SERVE THE PEOPLE T-shirt. "We can do a lot better. You can have socialism without suppressing intellectualism." His name is George Bryant, and he’s a volunteer at this decades-old bastion of unabashed communist agitation, a bookstore that, amazingly, still survives in the ever-more-corporatized "People’s Republic of Cambridge." Bryant gestures toward a stack of books and DVDs from the Maoist Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP), whose chairman, Bob Avakian, is "really offering a deep critique of America and an in-depth defense of communism — in a sense reinventing it without throwing out the whole."

The kid and his friends, high-schoolers obviously flirting with jejune hard leftism, seem noncommittal and a little nonplussed. "What would you guys think about taking a bunch of these?" Bryant asks, offering a stack of the Maoist RCP weekly newspaper, Revolution, for them to proselytize with. The kids demur, and they leave.

Stalin a nice guy? These guys have really been brainwashed.

You can have socialism without suppressing intellectualism.

Um, ok. As long as the intellectuals tow the party line and don't try any of that independent thinking or creativity nonsense. (eyeroll) Just ask Solzhenitsyn how nice it was to be an intellectual under Stalin. Or any of the nameless gulag residents just how great intellectualism was under Stalin. Oh, wait, you can't, he had them all 'taken care of'. The intellectuals, like this guy thinks he'll be under communism, need to realize they can be all that so long as they don't mind being told what to think and not to ask too many questions. Boston's practically there.

When there is no middle class left, only peasants and rich liberals, then the revolution can happen.

Massachusetts is well on it's way. John Effin and Teddy and Barney are working hard to demonize the middle class and pass around their socialist ideas. The taxes alone make it hard for any middle class to really be well off and the benefits for the poor keep them lined up and obedient to their leaders - and hating the people they are told are the rich, but in reality are the middle class. Of course, John and Teddy are the unquestioned elite that run the machine.

My sister and bil live there as well. I love it there and have considered a move, but that is certainly a negative. We hear of conservatives (always said kind of funny by Mass state libs) there - as many as 30-35% some stats say - but my sis and bil are fairly apolitical. They say it's safer. What a political climate!

I don't think so. Cheap commie rag shrunk too much to wear. It was fun to walk in there wearing shades and a "Live Free or Die" New Hampshire shirt with an eagle on it when I bought it. Those lefty freaks were looking at me like I was about to open up with an Uzi....

The most effective way to really piss someone off is to not take them seriously. So I suppose I got plenty of mileage out of that "Mao More Than Ever" shirt....

Dotterman is a communist because he has to be.

If this were a communist nation, Mr. Dotterman, you'd be right.

But this is the United States of America. You're a commie, Mr. Dotterman, because this nation protects your right to be one.

Massachusetts is well on its way.

So are parts of New Hampshire and Vermont. It is becoming SO expensive to live that middle-class wage earners are moving away...you just can't afford to live here. I'm in a town of 20,000 in west NH, and rents average $1000 - 2000 per month. When you're making $15 - $20 per hour, it is tough to hang on. There are TONS of jobs, but no takers. Doctors, lawyers, and college professors can hack it, but the service industry that waits their tables, does their dry cleaning, and operates their retail sector are leaving...who will do their 'dirty work' then? Interesting times...

And it doesn’t have to be bloody when the revolution comes. "Russia in 1917 was incredibly nonviolent."

This is the type of thinking we are dealing with. Of course it wasn't nonviolent -- until the communists took over. By 1918 an extremely bloody civil war broke out.

Oh and the so called fun foreign exchange work programs aren't filled with just south Americans. There are many from such countries as Romania and the like. They lure foreign twenty something year olds who are youthfull and want to sew their oats abroad and aren't looking to settle down starting families. ie., they get free room and board and get to travel the globe. I haven't talked to enough of them to see if its a great deal for them or not. Guess it beats back packing and sleeping in cheap YMCA's or hostils(sp?)

Yep sorry to say none of them ever look older than 25 to 28 years old. I figure because they're young, adventureous and care free as we all are at that age. No baggage to worry about and by the time they're 30 yrs old it's time to head back home or marry an American for citizenship.

Exactly what we tell them. Gee, the liberals are soooo enlightened and tolerant. I think they're both closet conservatives, at least to some degree, but expressing political or -horror- religious beliefs is strictly, to quote my sister, verboten. John and Teddy and Barney must be so proud! (oh, wait, they are...)

Otoh, I haven't received any feedback (verbal, keying, etc) on my Bush sticker when I visit. And we do play 'spot the Bush stickers' to pass the time on the drive. lol

I know, it's so true. I thought I could get a job there, but I couldn't crunch the numbers to make it work. It's funny to hear people who are dems there complain about the cost of living and jobs and illegal immigrants, but don't dare whisper that perhaps their support of the dems is at least part of the problem. It's humurous to hear some of the liberal talk radio on our drive, some of the callers are so close to conservative thought, yet they claim to hate it, and the dem system they worship is what is taxing them out of existence, but their 'solutions', when pressed, almost always involve more taxes.

It's easy to see who is taking those jobs, at least in some neighborhoods, that regular hard working Massachusan middle classers have to give up and leave - the illegal or barely legal immigrant. They afford the high rents by sharing living quarters with many others and do the work, but neither seems to realize it's the death of the middle class and the upper class Kerry's will just continue to lord it over whoever is left to do their 'dirty work'. Sadly, some of these immigrants may think they can achieve the 'American' dream, only to later be caught short when they can never rise above menial, low wage labor, once the middle class is really gone and the uppers rely on them to clean up. Ironically, my own rural western PA area has seen some migration of these Mass state middle class folks who come here to my area for the labor jobs.

Learn Spanish the way I'm doing it...the lazy way. Many dvds have Spanish subtitles and/or audio tracks in Spanish. I'm a big fan of "Seinfeld", and all of their seasons on dvd have Spanish subtitles and audio tracks. I frequently watch the show with the audio set on English with Spanish subtitles and then rewatch the same episode with Spanish audio and subtitles. (One word of caution, I know enough Spanish to know that the Spanish audio and subtitles do not match identically. In fact, amazingly, they can be very different. But they are usually close enough to understand what the characters mean).

Also many movies have Spanish audio and subtitles, and I reflexively check the jackets of prospective dvds to see if it has them. Probably not the best way to learn Spanish, but I am learning at a respectable rate. I should add that I took four semesters of Spanish in college and also subscribe to Tiempos del Mundo a Spanish-language weekly newsmagazine. At this rate, I figure I should be able to speak Spanish fluently within five years. Hopefully only five years that is.

I was thinking of putting the quote from "Revolution" up...Speaking of Lennon, a conservative talk host in Boston was pointing out how "Imagine" sounds like a plea for one world government, and so on (imagine no countries...imagine no religion, I wonder if you can...imagine no possessions). Of course I remember one of the tongue-in-cheek "Letters _From_
The Editors" in National Lampoon that went like this:

Dear Sirs:

Imagine no possessions. What a terrible, terrible thought.

"Sounds like"? What else would it be?

Lennon himself admitted that he was taking a new strategy with "Imagine". Rather than being loud and in-your-face revolutionary with his music, he'd "sugar-coat" it instead. It seemed rather effective.

I read the lyrics to that song before ever having heard it. It reads a little like a leftist protest march (a la "Give Peace a Chance").

Wishful thinking for them. They WANT it to happen. It really stinks for them when things go well.

>>It's no secret among their leadership that revolution CANNOT occur as long as there is a strong middle class.

Which is why they want to bring down the middle class and upper class, and have hard working people forfeit much of
their salaries to a big government. The joys of a "classless society".

"But if that's the case, then it shouldn't count as democide at all."

If it is wanton murder by government for reasons of
political, genocide or mass murder the author attempts to
count it.
Read the authors definition of democide below.

"Does that statistic also include the number of ordinary criminals gunned down by police officers?"
No. It does not meet the definition.

The term democide means for governments what murder means
for an individual under municipal law. It is the
premeditated killing of a person in cold blood, or causing
the death of a person through reckless and wanton
disregard for their life. Thus, a government incarcerating
people in a prison under such deadly conditions that they
die in a few years is murder by the state--democide--as
would parents letting a child die from malnutrition and
exposure be murder. So would government forced labor that
kills a person within months or a couple of years be
murder. So would government created famines that then are
ignored or knowingly aggravated by government action be
murder of those who starve to death. And obviously,
extrajudicial executions, death by torture, government
massacres, and all genocidal killing be murder. However,
judicial executions for crimes that internationally would
be considered capital offenses, such as for murder or
treason (as long as it is clear that these are not
fabricated for the purpose of executing the accused, as in
communist show trials), are not democide. Nor is democide
the killing of enemy soldiers in combat or of armed
rebels, nor of noncombatants as a result of military
action against military targets.

With this understanding of democide, Table 1 lists all
communist governments that have committed any form of
democide and gives their estimated total domestic and
foreign democide and its annual rate (the percent of a
government's domestic population murdered per year). It
also shows the total for communist guerrillas (including
quasi-governments, as of the Mao soviets in China prior to
the communist victory in 1949) and the world total for all
governments and guerillas (including such quasi-
governments as of the White Armies during the Russian
civil war in 1917-1922). Figure 1 graphs the communist
megamurderers and compares this to the communist and world
totals.

Genocide: among other things, the killing of people by a
government because of their indelible group membership
(race, ethnicity, religion, language).

Politicide: the murder of any person or people by a
government because of their politics or for political
purposes.

Mass Murder: the indiscriminate killing of any person or
people by a government.

Democide: The murder of any person or people by a
government, including genocide, politicide, and mass
murder.

Table 1.

DEATH BY GOVERNMENT
Definition of Democide

Exactly.

By the way, in some ways "This Land is Your Land" is a great song (the beauty of our land), but how many people know that _avowed Commie_ Woody Guthrie wrote the following verse in that song?

"As I went walking I saw a sign there
And on the sign it said "Private Property"
But on the other side it didn't say nothing,
That side was made for you and me."

(they hate the idea of being able to own property, one of the great concepts of our Republic)

Not to quibble, but RED DIAPER BABIES are the sons and daughters if actual, card carrying American Commies. Often, they've masqueraded as Liberals/Dems, but they were and still are, a select group of "elites", who all went ( and probably still go ) to the same Commie summer camps, play with each growing up, and network with others, all over the country. Just about every name connected with the "leadership" of the hippies, Yippies, SDS,Weathermen, etc., was a RED DIAPER BABY. The one exception was Tom Hayden.

If these kids really wanted to "rebel", they'd all become staunch, died in the wool CONSERRVATIVES. But that would take brains, guts, and work. So instead, these morons playact at being stinking Commies.
