Communism is alive and well. ....Far from being dead and buried, communism remains a potent force - one that is still a threat to Western nations that value freedom and capitalism.
This is because the ideological roots of communism have not been defeated. Rather than being polar opposites, fascism and Marxism are evil twins. They are both socialist ideologies that espouse one-party rule, economic collectivism and social regimentation. They are implacably opposed to capitalism, the sovereignty of the family and Judeo-Christian civilization. They are aggressively imperialist, seeking world domination.
The major difference between them is that while Marxism champions the creativity of class conflict, viewing the working class as the engine of historical revolution, fascism embraces the primacy of primordial impulses - race, blood and soil....Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini....were "national socialists" who fused statism with xenophobic nationalism.
History is repeating itself. Today, the communist virus has simply mutated into its fascist offspring.
Russian strongman Vladimir Putin is an ex-KGB official who has called the breakup of the Soviet Union "the greatest tragedy of the 20th century." He has erected a militaristic, authoritarian petro-state that seeks to restore the Great Russian Empire. Moscow....has launched a war of aggression against the republic of Georgia. It has swallowed up Belarus. Mr. Putin told former President George W. Bush that Ukraine is "not even a state," demanding that Kiev join a new pan-Slavic union.
Moscow is also using economic blackmail, especially by exploiting Europe's growing dependency on Russian oil and natural gas supplies, to intimidate its former satellite states. Mr. Putin even forced President Obama to scuttle a missile defense system for Poland and the Czech Republic - effectively abandoning Eastern Europe to Russia's sphere of influence. In short, Mr. Putin is slowly reconstituting the old communist order under the veneer of nationalism.

“Mr. Putin even forced President Obama to scuttle a missile defense system for Poland and the Czech Republic”
As designed in the l700’s by Adam Weishaupt, whom Thomas Jefferson considered a harmless philosopher! Lots more to this story, so Google it!
Yep..it lives on and now occupies our own executive and legislative branch in America!
It’s not the Commies outside I worry about; it’ss the Commies right here at home.
-They are implacably opposed to capitalism, the sovereignty of the family and Judeo-Christian civilization
Duhhhh? I believe Karl Marx was Jewish, as was Leon Trotsky, and Saul Alinsky, and George Soros, and Rahm Emmanuel, and Cass Sunstein, and on and on; that every single Jewish member of the US Senate, Schumer, Boxer, Feinstein, Specter, etc. is a left leaning Democrat. And that eighty percent of the world media and financial support that put Barack Obama in place was Jewish owned.
But if anyone wants the connection Julian Jaynes nails it.
“Yep..it lives on and now occupies our own executive and legislative branch in America!”
I believe you left out the judicial branch.
