Stone Adds Lipstick to Chavez Pig

In Elections, Foreign Policy, Politics on May 29, 2010 at 1:13 pm

Ian James at the Associated Press reports Oliver Stone is trying to make the socialist movement of South America look like a positive for the world.  As if socialism is the wave of the future.  He is coming out with a new movie that is supposed to help clear the air and prove how the rest of the free world just completely misunderstands Hugo Chavez and his comrades in the banana republics around him.

What’s next, a major motion picture ascribing the benefits of cannibalism?

Opinion “C” isStone like love is blind. Hollywood will do anything to try and convince America of the need for socialism in the world.  Which is sad because Hollywood butters it’s bread with the benefits of capitalism and free markets.  They paint the prettiest picture on the dictatorships of the world and hope that a majority of Americans will buy it due to the ignorance that was proven in this country in the votes for Obama.  If we don’t wake up and start proving we can detect a rat when we encounter one, these movies like the Al Gore deceptions, will take root as “truth” and we all lose.

Between this and Hillary’s push to paint socialism as the reason to praise Brazil I am beginning to think there is a bit of coordination going on here.  We all need to stay up to speed and I think at some point praising our enemies and promoting their evil plans needs to be ridiculed in a far more public and effective manner.

If you don’t think these efforts creates a large loyal deceived following you are not paying attention to history distant or recent.

If the reality of socialism is not truly exposed, I foresee a day where America returns to conditions before our independence and most people will think that is just fine.  To have any hope of preventing this we need to see drastic change in 2010 and 2012 election cycles and we need to see socialist minded legislation stopped and repealed.  Get involved.  Take action and make a difference.

  1. THE EVOLUTION OF CAPITALISM

    Capitalism was founded upon basic principles: production, supply and demand, and capital accumulation. It is a social theory whereby prices are determined by profit and loss, as well as market interest and fluctuations.

    Although I understand the need for a free market enterprise, such a theory should not imply that we are willing to disregard our environment, or sacrifice the needs and comforts of our humanity in an attempt to realize higher profits (a.k.a., BP, Lehman Brothers, Goldman Sachs, etc).

    Capitalism may be wonderful, but like anything else, it is still a flawed system. It’s a work in progress. It needs to be tweaked here and there in order to perfect its balance and to soothe the inordinate swings that occur day-to-day in our financial markets. If left unchecked, however, such a system will prove to be our economic downfall.

    How so?

    Well, for one thing, there is only so much profit a business can make from a product before it is left to cut costs in both quality and workmanship. In order to continually sustain a profit, businesses have to create those same products with lower quality ingredients and cheaper labor: which means that they must pull up stakes and move to other countries like China, Taiwan, or Mexico in order to survive. What does this eventually mean for people like you and me? It means that the very financial theory that promoted our country to super power status has turned on us. It means that the American workforce is now expected to work harder, longer, cheaper, and faster if we are to compete with the global economy now breathing down our necks.

    Where do we go from here?

    George Orwell had it right, to some extent, when he wrote his book1984. Many years from now, money will become worthless and the global populace will be employed and subject to hundreds (if not thousands) of individualized corporations that managed to survive attrition through merger aquisitions. It will be a feudalistic society: every corporation out for blood and vying for global dominance and absolute power. Our children and grandchildren will be there too: housed, clothed and fed by these various corporate entities; all the while being sent out on occasion, like brainless automatons, to errands of war, in an effort to absorb the weakest corporations into the fold. After all the dust settles, and everything is said and done, the remaining corporations will finally merge into a one-world government.

    Science fiction, you say?

    (…I’m left wondering.)
