“Developed Western Countries: Practicing Communism by Another Name

a. High Taxes and Generous Social Welfare
b. Aggressive Economic Interventionism in Western Countries
c. Socialist Economics Leads to Communist Totalitarianism”

Sound familiar?

On the way to all out Communism they pretend that Communism and Socialism are two different things.

Or that Progressives do not have a Communist agenda.

They are not being altogether truthful…

“The Dystopian Socialism of the Chinese Communist Party

a. The Chinese Economy: No Relaxation of Communist Control
b. The Truth Behind China’s Economic Rise
c. Consequences of the Chinese Economic Model”

The Chinese call it Socialism with Chinese characteristics.

How about Socialism as a mask for Communism?

You can vote for anybody you please, as long as he is a member of the Communist Party.
