To each, according the her flexibility.
Besides tearing economies to the ground, forming politburos, and scorching the Earth with stupidity, one of the big programs under Communism is the attempted formation of a new type of citizen. It's against the grain of human nature, but the idea is to turn the masses into a different form of humanity. ("Human nature can go straight to fucking hell!" - Chairman Mao Zedong , overheard on the Long March somewhere, but in a dialect nobody could completely understand.)
You've got your Soviet farm girls there, on the Collective. Would they have been happy being part of a nuclear family? Well, again, human nature didn't come into the calculations of the Soviet 5-year Central Planners. The poor peons stuck in this system had to live miserably and in ways that don't befit human beings. That whole experiment was a godawful mess for 7 decades. I'm sure a new Soviet citizen could have told this Peak Stupidity blogger that early on in the whole thing, but these new citizens had no say in trying to terminate it.
Additionally, whatever actions, domestic or foreign, their "people's" Soviet Government took, these poor "citizens" had no say in the matter. The Free World looked upon their nation with disdain, at both their Communist economy and their leaders who wanted to spread Communism around the world.
I was thinking of this, as the current American society is being pushed toward values and programs that are also against human nature. These are other forms of stupidity than what the old Soviets could not have even imagined*. As the Bolsheviks did 100 years ago in Russia, the new Bolsheviks are overturning traditional society in America now.
Instead of being subject to classes that would ingrain the Soviet concepts of Communism into those New Soviet men and women, we are being subjected to this shit:
I don't see how anyone outside the Western World could refrain from laughing at us for what you see there and all the rest of the black-worshipping, feminist, and genderbender wokeness.
Along with that, just as with the USSR back in the day, the US Feral Gov't and Deep State are making moves that sully the reputation of America around the world. (This has been going on for nearly the whole 3 decades since the end of the Cold War. All that goodwill built up? Shot to hell.)
I remember the Cold War times. I think most Americans could go through the logic that, hey, it wasn't the New Soviet Men who were responsible for it all. They had no power.
Does the other side understand this today? Does the average Russian or Chinese citizen figure that all Americans are silly-minded, power-hungry world bullies? I see this stuff in the Ukraine and at the universities and on the streets, and all I've got is this blog, right now, to tell them "Hey, it's not ME, man!"
We're the decent people caught up in the maelstrom now. No matter what the rest of the world thinks of us American patriots, unlike the Soviet New World Man, we DO have plenty of recourse. Let's not let it all go too far.
He's a writer and arranger,
and a young boy bearing arms.
He's got a problem with his power,
with weapons on patrol.
He's got to walk a fine line,
and keep his self-control.
He's noble enough to know what's right,
but weak enough not to choose it.
He's wise enough to win the world,
but fool enough to lose it.
He's a new world man.
