“The permanent misfits can find salvation only in a complete separation from the self; and they usually find it by losing themselves in the compact collectivity of a mass movement.” Eric Hoffer
Before we take up this topic we need to make a few points. Socialists and communists have the same goal namely a world government based upon Marxist principles. They only differ as to method. Communists prefer revolution while socialists prefer gradual infiltration. The Social Democrats are nothing more than a group that split off from the Communist Party because they prefer the more gradual approach. Other than that there is little difference and no difference as to what they want to accomplish. The United States with its emphasis on freedom stands in the way of these Marxists achieving their goals and so the United States must be converted into a socialist nation as rapidly as possible.
The hard core socialists are a very small percentage of the U.S. population, probably less than two percent. Socialism does an excellent job of packaging their product and so it attracts many to their cause and those numbers are increasing, particularly among younger people who are not wise enough yet to see through the smoke screen that socialism throws around their message. The indoctrinated people form a certain percentage of the socialist following and some prime examples of indoctrinated socialists are Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and of course Bernie Sanders, who is the only one of those three with the courage to describe accurately what he actually believes in.
There is also a large group of people that follow the message because it is in their best interests to do so since they depend on the government for either their work or their survival. Lenin called members of this group “useful idiots.”
I wanted to talk today about the most dangerous group of all, the true believers. If you want to know precisely how true believers operate I suggest you get the book The True Believer by Eric Hoffer and read it over carefully. I will give you a brief synopsis here. A true believer is someone who believes that their life is spoiled and in order to give their life meaning they must have a cause. A true believer doesn’t really care what the cause is as long as he has one. For anyone that wants a cause socialism is always available to the true believer. A true believer easily accepts that America is evil and will do everything to bring down this system of government. A true believer will do anything in his power to see the cause come to a successful conclusion including violating any and all laws as required. Bill Ayres and Bernardine Dohrn are examples of true believers. These people are extremely dangerous and will stop at nothing to see that their cause is victorious and, if they are victorious, they will simply move on to the next cause!
