Joseph Stalin: Memoirs of a Leftist Madman
Canada Free Press ^ | Sunday, January 24, 2010 | Kelly O'Connell

Posted on 01/25/2010 8:02:23 PM PST by sheikdetailfeather

Conclusion All the incredibly cruel and willfully stupid acts by Joseph Stalin cannot be recounted here. But Uncle Joe goes down as yet another failed, heartless, egotistical, bloodthirsty, unjust, rude, and functionally illiterate Marxist tyrant. Stalin killed many of the best people in society out of fear, which had especially bad results when Russia was attacked by Nazi Germany, as most of the experienced Red Army officers had already been executed in the Great Terror. He was also a horrific economic planner, because he had no training and was too vain to admit he needed any, and so his centrally planned economy was a perpetual under or non-performer. Like a true Marxist, he hated capitalism, once saying, “America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.” But more than anything, Stalin’s idea of killing as way to building a better society was a contradictory and devilish vision that utterly destroyed the heart of Russia for generations, and from which it has yet to recover. For these reasons, and many more, Stalin should never be held up as a leader by any person insterested in democracy, justice or human rights.

“America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.”

This is true, though the spiritual determines the efficacy of the former elements.

Mass murderers like Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot and multitude more were in-deed acting out of atheism’s basis for morality (or lack thereof), doing what was pragmatically “reasonable” to them in slaying and subjugating their multitudes.

..atheism has been tried as a basis for life in many countries in the 20th century. The results have been some of the biggest bloodbaths of all time under communist despots above the law, e.g., Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot. For example, the Inquisition killed 2000 people in three centuries; Stalin killed that many before breakfast. ( Sarfati, 2004 & 2008. See also Morris)

Stalin decided the economy must be given a quick upgrade, and so he launched his Five-Year Plan, announced in 1929. Pipes describes how this put the entire economy under state control.

Like Lenin before him, and Mao after, Stalin created a forced famine to break the backs of the poor farmers.

Prov. 29:2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

And under the ever-morphing morality of State-sponsored secularism, and liberal religion,

The Consequences of Roe v. Wade
49,551,703
Total Abortions since 1973

After reaching a high of over 1.6 million in 1990, the number of abortions annually performed in the U.S. has dropped back to levels not seen since the late 1970s.

Two independent sources confirm this decline: the government’s Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Alan Guttmacher Institute (AGI), Planned Parenthood’s special research affiliate monitoring trends in the abortion industry. After reaching a high of over 1.6 million in 1990, the number of abortions annually performed in the U.S. has dropped back to levels not seen since the late 1970s. http://www.nrlc.org/abortion/facts/abortionstats.html

The following stats are dated, but little has changed for the better.

Almost 80% of teen mothers end up on welfare. Overall monetary cost to tax payers: $7 billion annually. http://www.theodora.com/teddy/newyork/teenage.html

In 1996 approximately 4 in 10 young women in the U.S. became pregnant at least once before turning 20 years old. 12 Facts in Brief: Teen Sex and Pregnancy, 1996.

Almost 1 out of every 3 of all pregnancies in the U.S. end in murder by abortion (1.4 million abortions each year). http://tennesseerighttolife.org/human_life_issues/human_life_issues_abortion_lies_and_myths.htm

But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
(Proverbs 8:36)

The ascension of a supreme egoist, who fails by his own arrogance, and whom [sic] lacks all scruples seems a given in every communist regime.

Well, it looks like we've got one of those on our hands in the good old U. S. of A. right now. Let us hope that his arrogance will bring on failure as quickly (and painlessly — to us) as possible.

Thanks so much for the ping, grey_whiskers!
