The 45 Goals of Communism

Following on from my post on the left’s predictable disdain for Australia Day – and with more lying in store for Anzac Day – reader karabar brings our attention to a very interesting list of Communist goals read into the US Congressional Record over 50 years ago. Some things never change:

On Jan. 10, 1963, Congressman Albert S. Herlong Jr. of Florida read a list of 45 Communist goals into the Congressional Record. The list was derived from researcher Cleon Skousen’s book “The Naked Communist.” These principles are well worth revisiting today in order to gain insights into the thinking and strategies of much of our so-called liberal elite.

If you look at 29,30, 31,32 in particular you will recognise the reason for this attack on Australian patriotism. The other 41 remarks have a familiar ring as well.

Diversity is like many things in life: if you do not exercise it in careful moderation, then you’re going to have a bad time.

To demonstrate this point, imagine you are cooking spaghetti bolognese and looking to add some herbs as a finishing touch. You could either:

  • be innovative and come up with your own combination of a few herbs, which may or may not include oregano and basil.

Alternatively, for those of the left, it would be remiss of me not mention that you could also choose to:

Saudis Lose Game of Chicken With USA

One thing that should give us cause for optimism for 2017 and beyond is oil. You know, the stuff the left-intelligentsia said we were supposed to have run out of by now – but which the Saudis recently reminded us that there’s more than we know what to do with.

Contrary to popular belief, low oil prices are not necessarily a good thing. Even when economic times are good, low oil prices are inflationary and can be the sign of bad things to come (e.g. the 1990s leading up to the Asian Economic Crisis). Alternatively, as we’ve recently found out, low oil prices can also be a symptom of tough economic times due to low demand and activity in key economies in Europe and the USA. Indeed, you don’t see many people cheering the super low petrol prices we’ve seen recently. After all, there’s little use in having plenty of cheap fuel to put in your car if you’ve got nowhere to go.
