The Collapse of Soviet Socialism



Today, Breitbart published an excellent retrospective on the history of Soviet socialism. The date is significant because the Soviet Union collapsed exactly 25 years ago, finally ending the most significant example of a country attempting to implement the doctrines of Karl Marx and bring about pure socialism.

To the end of course, the various liberals and other cretinous fools and useful idiots were insisting that the Soviet Union was doing fine, that it was going to exist indefinitely, and that the United States was foolish for attempting to compete with it. Ronald Reagan was attacked as a warmonger, and as we published last week, the Democrats even attempted to negotiate with the Soviets to get help preventing Reagan from being reelected in 1984. Which is definitely treason by the way, deliberating consorting with a foreign power to help rig a domestic election. But don't expect the Democrats to ever acknowledge that.

The article closes with some very thought-provoking words:
As the Soviet mathematician and dissident Igor Shafarevich, who spent many years in the Gulag slave labor camps for his opposition to the communist regime, said in his book The Socialist Phenomenon (1980):
Most socialist doctrines and movements are literally saturated with the mood of death, catastrophe, and destruction … One could regard the death of mankind as the final result to which the development of socialism leads.

That 20th-century socialism would lead to nothing but this outcome was understood at the time of the Bolshevik victory in Russia. It was clearly expressed by the greatest intellectual opponent of socialism during the last 100 years, the Austrian economist, Ludwig von Mises.

Near the end of his famous 1922 treatise Socialism: An Economic and Sociological Analysis, Mises warned:


Socialism is not in the least what is pretends to be. It is not the pioneer of a better and finer world, but the spoiler of what thousands of years of civilization have created. It does not build, it destroys. For destruction is the essence of it. It produces nothing, it only consumes what the social order based on private ownership in the means production has created … Each step leading towards Socialism must exhaust itself in the destruction of what already exists.


When voices are once again heard calling for socialism – even by a recent candidate for the Democratic Party nomination for U.S. President or on university campuses around the country – it is important, no, it is crucial, that the history and reality of socialism-in-practice in those parts of the world where it was most thoroughly imposed and implemented, as in the Soviet Union, be remembered and fully understood.

If we do not, well, history has its own ways of repeating itself.


The Democrat Party has become a collection of socialists who think that the Soviet Union had the right idea, think that capitalism is evil and Communism is good (and yes, like fascism too, but that's a different article), and hate every single aspect of America's western foundations and rule of law.

Bernie Sanders was ridiculously popular amongst the Democratic base, and his mixture of reheated socialism and aging hippie zeitgeist captured the popular imagination of America's youth, who have sadly been the victim of our colossally inept school system.

His hard left approach forced the Democratic Party as a whole to show its massive left wing slide, laying bare their intellectual vacuousness and morally bankrupt economic philosophies. Under President Trump, we have the chance to start to roll back the tide of socialism that hard-core Marxist Obama and his sycophants have inflicted on the United States.

It is an opportunity that is overdue, and this may represent our last, best chance to roll back the tide of Marxism and Orwellian thought control that the Democrats are pushing for America.

Our children deserve to live under capitalism, not under the end result of a failed economic philosophy that properly belongs in the ash heap of history.

Show the Democrats and their fellow Marxists no mercy. Drive them from the public sphere, drive their ideas from the universities, and drive their ideas from the marketplace of ideas.

The great thing is that doing this requires no violence. Like cockroaches to light, not one aspect of the Democratic platform can stand up to the light of criticism. Turn it on and watch them scatter.

Partial Guide to Alt-Right Websites

Its an interesting time to be an American, especially if you are interested in politics and socioeconomics. The Internet has enabled many other-wise marginalized voices to be heard, and communities to sprout up around shared beliefs and goals.

One of the largest and fastest growing of these segments is the loose collection of websites known collectively as the "alt-right." While differing in many respects and exhibiting a tremendous degree of variety in their approach and tactics, the alt-right is largely unified around a respect for tradition and masculinity and is committed to largely libertarian ideals.  

There is much written that I do not endorse on these sites, but I do endorse a large portion of it and feel that Reality Hammer belongs in the same general political spectrum. Disagreements among intelligent men are nothing new, and are a very healthy thing, so long as these disagreements are carried on by rational adults who use the tools of logic to debate and disagre…

Fisking Sean Penn's Idiotic Editorial on Castro's Death

Today I was gifted with this astonishing (but not surprising) piece of idiocy from one of America’s foremost lovers of oppressive dictatorships and the men who run them, Comrade Sean Penn! He posted a rambling piece at the Daily Beast full of idiocy and whiney complaints about those MEANIES who were happy that Castro is dead. For good measure he doubled down about Castro: The Defender of The Poor People and the meanies who don’t like him. Those same MEANIES didn't vote for the Anointed Pantsuit either, and so Comrade Penn has a lot on his scrawny little libprog chest that he needs to get off. So let's have some fun!
My comments are in bold,Comrade Penn’s are initalics.
I was an American abroad, working overseas on this recent election night 2016. By midnight I was able to put myself to sleep, confidently, arrogantly, supremely certain that the election would go to Hillary Clinton, if not the Democrats at large.
Comrade Penn is kind enough to actually admit a by-now very evident t…

(Part 3): SJWs Have Always Lied. A Fisking of Soviet Civilization(1952) by Corliss Lamont

Continuing on with this massive fisking of Corliss Lamont’s 1952 book on the Soviet Union, this week’s installment is going to focus on Comrade Lamont’s explanation as to why Communism is a phenomenal system to live under and is totally different from fascism, which sucks to live under. It's a very nuanced interpretation of the two socialist philosophies and one that will require not only all of Comrade Lamont’s intellectual brainpower but also the complete ignorance and credulity of the reader. Let’s see how he does.

On Page 228, Comrade Lamont identifies ten “fundamental differences” between Soviet socialism and fascism. This is on the second page of the chapter and represents his efforts to set the tone for the remainder of the chapter. Essentially, if he can get the big whoppers swallowed first, the remaining smaller ones will go down easier. So let's take a look at the ten differences that Lamont claims separate the evils of totalitarian fascist socialism from the saintly …
