Fabians Cited in Communist Revival

U.S. self-destructs in the name of the 'working class'
As a young teenager, I witnessed the historic visit of Nikita Khrushchev to my mid-west hometown. At the time, our respective nations were embroiled in the Cold War.

Distinguished as first secretary of the Soviet Union’s Communist Party, Khrushchev had famously insisted, “We will bury you”—of course, “not with a shovel”—but “[America’s] own working class will [do it].”[1] While driven downtown in an open convertible, Khrushchev nodded and waved to a wary Iowan crowd that intentionally stonewalled fanfare typically afforded public figures.

With the collapse of the Berlin Wall in 1989, many boomers heaved a shared sigh of relief. Khrushchev’s threats were proven toothless, the Cold War was history, and it was time to kiss and make up. Thereafter, the leader of the Free World looked Vladimir Putin in the eyes and, as a friend, discerned “his soul.” In doing so, President George W. Bush necessarily overlooked Putin’s KGB infamy.

Decades later, there are more Communist Party members in the world than ever before, and over 1.5 billion today live under communism’s iron fist. Hence, the “mission accomplished” proclamation of 1989 is shown to have been unwarranted. Fact is, communism didn’t die with Karl Marx, nor did it collapse with the Berlin Wall; but there’s a price to pay for saying so. Progressives mock “conspiracy theorists” and accuse them of McCarthyism. Mere mention of this emotive term suggests “proof” that none can gainsay without reaping the scorn of enlightened folk who somehow know better.

Fabian Socialist Society

Advancing social reform by evolution versus revolution, the Fabian Socialist Society picked up where Karl Marx left off. Ardent socialist George Bernard Shaw wrote many brochures and speeches for the Fabian Society and, in the furtherance of its causes, became an accomplished orator on behalf of equal rights for men and women, alleviating abuses of the working class, and promoting healthy lifestyles. Shaw was in favor of rescinding private ownership of productive land, and he vigorously supported Stalin. He also believed in Hitler’s eugenic dream to improve the human race through selective reproduction.

Class struggle(in Marxist ideology) the conflict of interests between the workers and the ruling class in a capitalist society, regarded as inevitably violent.
"Oh [Muslim] brothers, the nation that excels in the death industry, and knows how to die a noble [death], Allah grants it a precious life in this world and eternal bliss in the Afterlife. The only weakness that shall humiliate us is the love of this world and hating death. Therefore we have prepared your souls for great action, strive for death - and life will be given to you."-- From Palwatch translation of The Muslim Brotherhood handbook.

Leading Global Socialist Arrested

IMF chief Strauss-Kahn cited as sexual predator
International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strass-Kahn has been charged with the sexual assault and attempted rape of a chambermaid at a hotel in New York. Strauss-Kahn, aged 62, was taken off a plane on Saturday at John F Kennedy airport , minutes before it left for Paris, and taken into custody.

Strauss-Kahn is a member of France's Socialist Party, and is widely expected to challenge President Nicolas Sarkozy in next year's elections.

Local media reports say the 32-year-old chambermaid entered Strauss-Kahn’s suite at the Sofitel hotel believing it to be empty and was assaulted when the IMF chief came out of the shower naked.

Polices sources say Strauss-Kahn left the hotel room in a hurry leaving behind his mobile phone and other personal effects.

The International Monetary Fund in Washington declined to comment.

Several opinion polls in France published before news of his arrest indicated Strauss Khan would defeat Sarkozy if he were to run with 26 per cent of the vote.
