We have already said … that the theory of Marx and Engels of the inevitability of a violent revolution refers to the bourgeois state. The latter cannot be superseded by the proletarian state … through the process of ‘withering away,’ but, as a general rule, only through a violent revolution.V.I. Lenin
According to the founding fathers of communism, the final overthrow of capitalism will be violent. Friedrich Engels said future revolutionary wars will result in the extermination of whole classes and races of people.
As Lenin explained, “The panegyric Engels sang in honor of [revolutionary violence], and which fully corresponds to Marx’s repeated statements … is by no means a mere ‘impulse,’ a mere declamation or polemical sally.” The founders of modern communism relished the idea of exterminating the world bourgeoisie.
“Revolution alone can ‘abolish’ the bourgeois state,” said Lenin, who did not believe in the peaceful politics of a democratic republic. “A democratic republic is the best possible political shell for capitalism,” he noted. And capitalism must be eradicated. This is the underlying impetus of the Marxist revolutionary dogma. Democracy is a fraud because — Lenin argued — it establishes the power of the capitalists “so securely, so firmly, that no change of persons, institutions or parties in the bourgeois-democratic republic can shake it.”
Lenin therefore believed in smashing democracy and capitalism at the same time. But he did not stop there. Lenin believed in leveling all institutions — the family, the church, private property, etc. This campaign of eradication would bring mankind to communism; that is, a modern technocratic form of communism.
Lenin’s creed, of course, is a creed of destruction; for the Promised Land of peace and plenty will never be found. In the end, Marxism’s revolutionary violence can achieve no positive results. In practice, communism always delivers war and poverty. Communism is a system of the psychopaths, for the psychopaths, and by the psychopaths. The form of state which they have perfected — in Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, Cuba, etc. — is geared toward the favored weapons of the psychopath; that is, the weapons of mass destruction.
The criminal rulers of the “socialist bloc” are always building nuclear and biological weapons. They are always dreaming of the day when these weapons will be unleashed on an unsuspecting world. A philosophy of revolutionary violence and extermination animates communist leaders.
The communist ruler wants to be God. He wants to flip creation on its head. His revolutionary theory begins with the grandiose premise that the bottom should be on top, that the creature should usurp the Creator, that destruction somehow deifies the destroyer.
“The necessity of systematically imbuing the masses with … this view of violent revolution lies at the root of the entire theory of Marx and Engels,” wrote Lenin in The State and Revolution. To imagine a peaceful or “democratic” transition to socialism is, according to Lenin, “opportunism”; that is, the sin of selling out the revolution for a piece of capitalist pie.
The emphasis on violence, mass murder and plunder, is intrinsic to Marxism. Please note: Marx, Engels and Lenin taught that the state is an instrument of violence. It consists of police and soldiers and prisons, said Lenin. These are always used by one class against another. Thus, in Lenin’s view, the bourgeois state exists to oppress the workers and the workers’ state exists to oppress — then finally destroy — the bourgeoisie.
Given this destructive impulse, a biological war should be an irresistible temptation. Capitalism accords with all the norms of social cooperation, economic optimism and free association. A deadly communicable disease derails the market system as it pulverizes economic optimism. Fear drives investment away. Terror strengthens the socialist state and the socialist revolution at the same time. Global Health Governance becomes the subversive slogan of the hour.
Given the communist thirst for power and inclination to destroy, a nuclear war is not altogether unattractive. This kind of war makes a nation dependent on top-down authority. And what could be more intoxicating than the power to incinerate cities, fleets and armies with hydrogen bombs. The planet will tremble. The human race will submit. The gods of socialism will be exalted.
There is also the logic of numeric progression: Stalin killed 30 million, Mao killed 60 million — why shouldn’t Xi Jinping kill 120 million? The ambition is all; for the World Revolution has many agents, and many useful idiots. Behind them are the missiles of the new communist bloc.
When the virus has done its work, and America’s financial power bleeds away, Lenin’s disciples will begin their destructive war. If they succeed, they will dictate peace terms to other countries. Beijing will decide the demography of Asia, the Pacific ring, and the lower 48 states. Russia will rule Europe, Alaska, and parts of Canada.
The victory of Moscow and Beijing, if they achieve it, will signal the socialist eschaton — the “end of history” as envisioned by Marx, Engels and Lenin. About this Eschaton Eric Voegelin wrote:
The eschatological interpretation of history results in a false picture of reality; and errors with regard to the structure of reality have practical consequences when the false conception is made the basis of political action.
The dictator states cannot build a new world on violence and lies. Any victory they achieve will be temporary. Their revolution “is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” Marxism, as a whole, — in all its politically correct manifestations — is a doctrine of counter-principles which are opposed to the principles of existence. It facilitates a time of dying. Nothing more.
To every thing there is a season, And a time to every purpose under heaven; A time to be born and a time to die.
The present self-defeating cycle of politics will bring about new conditions and a new beginning. Whatever happens, spring will come again.

Jeff, not sure if you can comment, I have been talking with some Hong Kong people on Twitter who have information on the Hong Kong Protest last year, I was informed before the violent protests started in July of last year. The head of the Ministry of State Security and the head of the Ministry of State Security of the Guangdong Region which includes Hong Kong were in Hong Kong just before the violent protests began, the head of the Ministry of State Security also reports to the Chinese Communist Party Leadership including Xi Jinping. I am not sure if this is revealing information
Yes. This is yet another indication among many. Certainly, from analyzing the leaders of the democracy movement, and by noting the gratuitous nature of the Hong Kong government’s legislative proposals last year, the situation of unrest was a classic communist provocation. The decision to launch this provocation preceded the viral outbreak with a precision and purposefulness that cannot be dismissed as incidental.
Great entry. I didn’t realize Communist ideology defined physical violence as an integral part of revolution.
And what could be more violent and revolutionary than the COVID-19? To kill the elder is, after all, the core of every revolutionary concept. Patricide and revolution are conceptually linked. The old must make way for the new.
Good point, well said.
An aunt of mine, who is 75 years old, said about what’s going on in Italy that the elderly are dropping like flies and that this might ultimately be the liquidation of an entire generation (and far beyond the borders of Italy alone): namely, her own generation and those even older than that, in any case the generation that has the most profound life experience, understanding, and I think she also meant the conservative attitudes of the elderly. “What will remain,” she almost screamed, “if the elderly are all gone? A spiritual DESERT,” she said! And right she is…
“His revolutionary theory begins with the grandiose premise that the bottom should be on top, that the creature should usurp the Creator, that destruction somehow deifies the destroyer.”
That is exactly what Lucifer (satan) did, and was cast out of Heaven for doing so. The evil one has been running rampant on earth ever since, in one form or another. Communism has been the insidious form for the past 120+ years.
Remembering the elaborations by KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov, we must acknowledge the world is now in “crisis”. After crisis, as it is understood by the communist strategists, comes “normalisation”, meaning the final realisation of “worldwide democratic peace” (read: total communist control over everything and everybody). We are only one step (or a sequence of interlocking steps) away from such terrible, terrible outcome. God help us…
“The eschatological interpretation of history results in a false picture of reality; and errors with regard to the structure of reality have practical consequences when the false conception is made the basis of political action.”
I have noticed a false picture of reality when speaking with Chinese communists (I’ve had a few interactions at trade shows). If they act on those, it would have a real probability to destroy China.
The communists can kill tens of millions here in the U.S. with nuclear weapons in an initial attack, but in order to win the war, they’ll need to put boots on the ground. How many troops can they land and induce to invade from the south? Will it be enough to win against tens of millions of ticked off armed Americans, many of whom are battle hardened veterans? If their armies suffer serious defeats, how will the long-suffering civilian population back in China react? Will they revolt? What would be the result if they revolt?
It is said that God is a God of love. That’s true. But love cannot thrive in a milieu of injustice. Therefore, God is also a just God. Justice demands retribution for injustice. The U.S. has “legally” murdered over 60 million innocent lives through abortion, will God requite life for life in the U.S.?
when i was a little boy i used to ride in my dad’s big truck during the summer. One day we were visiting a friend of my dad’s at his garage. I was standing inside the doorway to his large garage. It was a bright summer day, and my dad’s friend was backing a truck into the garage which was dark inside . I did not realize he could not see me and stood there in the path of his wheel’s until my dad jerked me to the side and yelled at me with anger i never saw in him before. He yelled…BIG WHEELS TURN SLOW,BUT IF YOU DON’T KEEP AN EYE ON THEM THEY WILL RUN YOU OVER. Big wheel’s are turning….
