Socialism Satans Economic Model by Milton Socialism in Economy, US Politics BQI has written and reproduced numerous articles in an attempt to help our readers to fully understand the evils of Socialism. While most Americans would not admit publically, I believe the vast majority of Americans, deep down inside, believe that President Obama has taken America on a course towards socialism and it appears from our most recent elections that Americans do not like the Presidents actions. Since socialism has been an abject failure in every case where is has been tried, liberals and progressives are hard pressed to explain why they are so enamored with the concept. While never really answering this most basic question, invariably they will say that pure socialism has never been achieved so that the concept itself has been tainted with dictators like Castro, and others because they have never embraced and fully implemented the tenets of pure socialism. I believe that socialism has consistently failed because it is an evil concept that is against all of what God has planned for man. It is representative of the age long struggle of good vs evil God and His benevolence against Satan and his destruction. Yes, there are remnants of socialism throughout the world but God has sustained the one shining light for the world to contrast with socialism; America. Now in the climatic struggle for mankind, the concept of good vs evil, Satan has launched his last major attack on the one beacon of Gods glory and what God wants for man and that is freedom and individualism. To the enlightened left, socialism is considered not only a viable economic model, but one that produces ultimately a society with abundance for all and poverty for none. A short read through the pages of history finds that belief to be founded on absolutely zero evidence. In truth, everywhere socialism has been attempted; it has failed to improve the lives of anyone, except those in power. Why does such a system always seem to fail? I think the answer may be pretty simple. Socialism is evil and by its very nature subverts the laws of God. Even the least religious among us know of the 10 Commandments, and most people can recite a few off the tops of their head. (Thou shall not kill. Thou shall not steal. etc.) But in my opinion, the commandment with the most to teach us as it relates to our dealings with each other is the 10th Commandment, and its pretty much overlooked by most people. You shall not covet your neighbors house. You shall not covet your neighbors wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor. Exodus 20:17 Violating the 10th Commandment leads to the violations of all the other commandments related to mans treatment of man that come before it. Coveting leads to stealing, or adultery, lies about your actions and in extreme cases murder of the one from whom you covet. Since covet isnt a word that is in common usage today, re-read the quote above and replace with the word desire. The 10th Commandment is a prohibition on us from desiring anything that does not belong to us. Socialism, as an economic and political model, is based on exactly that sinful desire. The operating premise of socialism is that the working class is oppressed based on the material possessions they have in relation to the middle and upper classes. Those who advocate socialism rely on this disparity, and the associated desires it creates, to obtain power with a promise to equalize the distribution of the stuff. In short, socialism would not exist without the coveting of your neighbors ox, donkey, house, or money. Socialism is not Godly and fails because it violates the 10th and therefore 8th Commandments (Thou shall not steal). It requires coveting that which is not yours, and then the confiscation of that which you covet (stealing) by an agent on your behalf in order that it may be redistributed to suit your personal perception of fairness. Using the government as the agent of theft for purposes of redistribution does not make the actions any less immoral. In fact, government compelled wealth redistribution is to stealing as murder for hire is to killing. Making Uncle Sam into the economic hit man does not absolve those who advocate such policies.
