Marxism’s greatest triumph is convincing you that is it not ubiquitous.

Bill Ayers at work.
Secrecy and a lazy, self-willed ignorance are their weapons. Transparency and blinding illumination are ours.

There are three types of Marxists in the world:

1. People who don’t know they’re regurgitating Marxist dogma, as with the “fat is beautiful” saddgirlz or the Hollywood ‘intellectuals’.

2. People who are actively, consistently and knowingly promulgating Marxist dogma, as with Pete Seeger.

3. The fully-aware knowing Marxist chess-masters, like Bill Ayers, who are minding, managing and manipulating the other two groups.

Is American public (and private) dyseducation a Marxist conspiracy? Groups 1 and 2 don’t know what group 3 does: That’s all it is. Because group 3 is so good at disguising Marxist doctrine as anything else, groups 1 and 2 will easily and usually unwittingly adopt the Marxist line on any topic without having to be specifically instructed. Birds of a feather.

This same phenomenon is all the explanation that is needed for the IRS persecution of Tea Party groups. When the ‘conspiracy’ is a noxious intellectual gas that pervades everything, direct command and control is normally unnecessary. A hint or two, here and there, at most.

One of the ways Marxism has perfected its camouflage is by mocking anyone who comes to be aware of this pandemic, subterranean agenda. Derision in response to the identification of Marxist propaganda, overtly or just by eye-rolling ridicule, is the Fallacy Ad Hominem in quest of the Fallacy of Well Poisoning. People resort to logical fallacies when they know their arguments cannot bear up to rigorous scrutiny. In other words, they issue their big fake Hillary-like guffaws because they know they can’t best you honestly.

But this is why all of us must be aware of Marxist orthodoxy all the time, and why we must expose it as such wherever we discover it, especially when it is cloaked in sheep’s clothing. Secrecy and a lazy, self-willed ignorance are tyranny’s weapons. Transparency and blinding illumination are ours.

Don’t let up. You’re winning.

    After I read this I looked up Bill Ayers, and found this at youtube of him at Elgin community College.
    I saw it and hope you to watch some of it yourself since he is saying alot of good, it makes sense, however I dont support his (allegedly) marxist views.
    But he is spot on about thinking for yourself, this is in other words what you call ‘father tongue’. Do correct me if im wrong and if; Ayers doesnt make sense in this speech/clip.
    Could you please elaborate more on Ayers and his likewise in relation to self adoration?

    By the way I really like youre clip-serie you make for The21Convention right now!
    And looking forward to the next.
    (Pardon my ‘french’, english is not my mother tongue, I am norwegian)

    • Very nice to meet you. I am a lifelong Ibsen fan, and I hope someday to make time to learn Norwegian well enough to read him in the original. That suggests I will have to spend a year or more in Norway, and my plan is to do it Ibsen’s way, every year in the Summer. 😉

      I haven’t watched the film, but Bill Ayers is easy to pin down with Google and Wikipedia, etc. He was a member of the Weather Underground terrorist organization and he narrowly escaped becoming a mass murderer by being an incompetent bomb-maker. Those who can’t, teach, and this is what he has done since then, infesting K-12 curricula, in particular, with every manner of veiled Marxism.

      Arguably, Ayers is the head puppeteer of American Marxism, although that dubious honor may in fact belong to his wife, Bernadette Dohrn, who actually could build bombs and actually did kill people. He is certainly the puppet-master behind Barack Obama, also a red-diapered lifelong Marxist, but one who – we are so lucky! – lacks Ayers’ revolutionary-zeal-borne work ethic.

      I was graced this weekend just passed with the honor of performing the marital ceremony for The 21 Convention’s Anthony Johnson and his bride and partner Marilee (Ellis) Johnson. My own wife and I had a very-married weekend simultaneously, and I remarked to her – as fully-human love-making is never better than when it is bursting with philosophy – that the entire history of human thought, until now, has consisted of concocting ways to hate and deride and denounce and allegedly-disprove the wonder of human consciousness, as a means of destroying it, starting with the Splendor anyone can reap almost for free, just by celebrating all that we have managed to accomplish while working so devilishly against ourselves.

      That leads to this: If I am the best friend Human Splendor has had so far, and I think I am, Bill Ayers has a good claim to being its best living enemy. Karl Marx is the undisputed King of Squalor, the best-yet Lord of the Flies, but Ayers would have been a welcome guest at Marx’ table, dutifully picking up every check.

      Further deponent sayeth not, namque res ipsa loquitur.

      Thanks for speaking up. It’s a rare virtue around here.

    Thanks for this answer, I am a bit star struck now, hehe, as I’ve just started reading Man Alive for the second time.
    Lovely
    to hear of Anthony’s wedding and I’ll be reading that paragraph you
    wrote a few times to understand and harvest as much splendor as
    possible.
    Ibsen is great, one of Norways pride.
    I wouldn’t totally
    agree that Obama is marxist(im no fan of him btw), but I am not living
    in the US and know only what i get from the media and internet. As many
    americans, you included in relation to Norway-dont know if you have ever
    been here but youre most welcome to. This said i dont mean to undermine
    you. First of all you must see and experience our natural pride-our
    Fjords, I am actually myself born in one; Nordfjord.

    I would like to tell you briefly about political Norway if you dont mind.
    As I see it: if you call Obama marxist then most Norwegians also are.
    But this is wrong in many ways, first of all that I lack enough knowledge of Obama to say this, and its also a joke:)
    Norway
    is social democratic, and health care is for everyone and is mostly paid
    for by taxes, taxes pay much here, most of public education and most of
    elderly care as well among the categories. However this as worsened
    because of finacial crisis, more elderly people than younger and exremely increased political focus on privatizing at the same time as the
    government bureacracy gets bigger. Growing paper mill now than ever.
    Privatising
    leading to higher prizes and in many cases does not improve quality or
    effectivity. Growing burecracy leading to higher taxes/more taxes and
    regulations that mostly is unecessary.
    Now there is a more
    right wing/’american-way’ of parties governing and this is going towards tax
    cut for the rich, trying to get into a sinking EU and privatizing the
    s’crap out of health care and other fundamental institutions in this
    country. I am scared that my country will get many problems that the US
    have-more homeless, poorer and that most people will have to work 2-3
    jobs just to make ends meet, as is quite frequent in the US if I am not
    mistaken?
    This would also lead to a rise in marxism/communism in Norway.
    Politics in general are messed up, too much systems and dehumanized in my opinion and mostly governed by psy/sosiopaths
    Anyway
    alot more could be said on this but I know you are a busy man. I have
    recommended Man Alive to many of my friends, but yet I dont think any
    have started even if I say “Read the 3-5 first pages at least.” ..(!?)..
    My latin sucks, but i have at least learned that Caesar is pronounced as Kaesar and I’ve made my ‘own’ latin saying: “Memento Vivo”

  • Kaesar Sm

    Ok… I did not know what happened there, making this disqus account was a mess and now Im suddenly guest and my comments structure is ugly. Well, well.

    • Kaesar Sm

      and Im back again..ahh the wonders of technology..(sigh)

      • Nordfjord! I love it.

        Using Marxism as a term of art is an American thing, and perhaps just a me thing. The term Communist is useless here, thanks to a very successful Marxist propaganda campaign. I use it, also, as a way of illustrating the underlying expropriation in state action.

        Obama was raised as an actual doctrinaire Marxist, but it’s anyone’s guess how much of that stuck with him. I don’t see any reason why he would have changed anything in his philosophy. In any case, if he were mellowed or if he were cautiously camouflaged, his public image would be exactly the same.

        > if you call Obama marxist then most Norwegians also are

        I would, but I see most Americans as being Marxists, too. This is an even weaker tea, the simple acknowledgement of how deeply Marx has set his roots in most peoples’ minds, mostly without their knowledge. One of the reasons I choose my words so carefully is that, if I use the wrong word, people can’t see what I’m talking about at all.

        Regarding privatizing, that word almost always means rent-seeking of the Rotarian Socialism kind: What was once a ‘public’ service is now provided ‘privately,’ except that the profits of the business are socialized to the ‘private’ company but the risks are socialized to the ‘public.’ If you get real disgovernance, the devolution of state power to free entities, that’s a good thing. But what you describe sounds more like the brother-in-law construction company, and all its many variations.

        If you can spare the mental bandwidth, Latin will open up English for you as it will for no one else: English is a Norse tongue pierced six different times by Latin. Having those three together would make you the master of Western Europe!

        My best to you. Thank you for spreading the word. The future belongs to the young, but the future of Man Alive is abroad, all thanks to the internet.

    • I had troubles, too. I posted thus comment on 2/20, but I saw yesterday that it’s not here. Once more, with feeling:

      Nordfjord! I love it.

        Thanks for this reply.
        Well I have shown it and talked about Man Alive to some of my friends but I havent been too convincing I guess. Probably because its needed to be read several times over to really get/understand it.
        Yes indeed the Internet is an awesome marvel!
