This very special SOCIALISM SUCKS SUNDAY
open thread is VERY OPEN – a place for everybody
to post whatever they feel they would like
to tell the White Hats, and the rest of the MAGA world.


I’ve got to thinking about why Socialism fails to deliver to the poor, the sick, the downtrodden of the world. As Wolf has mentioned before it fails by design.

So if it fails by design, what does a winning design look like?

I know the winning formula involves giving dignity, building a relational foundation before supporting decisions to improve upon life choices, that kind of thing.

Sort of the opposite of Bernie Sanders cast in the role of a Hallmark Santa Claus. We know that government assistance has been a big fail. And the socialists would like us to think that individual assistance is rare and inadequate.

From my own experience I learned that people want you to understand what matters to them, they may want you to meet one need that seems like a wrong priority, but the willingness to allow them to share their priorities may open a door to a conversation that would not happen otherwise.

I’ve also learned that I truly have no idea how to really help others. My helplessness has opened my heart to more of God in my own life as I partner with the person that I would like to help.

Maybe you would like to share a story about your own experiences with helping others.  A task not for the faint of heart.

I’m looking forward to reading your thoughts about this.

Selection from the chapters On Charity by Saint Maximus the confessor, abbot

Charity [caritas or agape in Greek] is a right attitude of mind which prefers nothing to the knowledge of God. If a man possesses any strong attachment to the things of this earth, he cannot possess true charity. For anyone who really loves God prefers to know and experience God rather than his creatures. The whole set and longing of his mind is ever directed toward him.

For God is far superior to all his creation, since everything which exists has been made by God and for him. And so, in deserting God, who is beyond compare, for the inferior works of creation, a man shows that he values God, the author of creation, less than creation itself.

The Lord himself reminds us: Whoever loves me will keep my commandments. And this is my commandment: that you love one another. So the man who does not love his neighbor does not obey God’s command. But one who does not obey his command cannot love God. A man is blessed if he can love all men equally. Moreover, if he truly loves God, he must love his neighbor absolutely. Such a man cannot hoard his wealth. Rather, like God himself, he generously gives from his own resources to each man according to his needs.

Since he imitates God’s generosity, the only distinction he draws is the person’s need. He does not distinguish between a good man and a bad one, a just man and one who is unjust. Yet his own goodness of will makes him prefer the man who strives after virtue to the one who is depraved.

A charitable mind is not displayed simply in giving money; it is manifested still more by personal service as well as by the communication of God’s word to others: In fact, if a man’s service toward his brothers is genuine and if he really renounces worldly concerns, he is freed from selfish desires. For he now shares in God’s own knowledge and love. Since he does possess God’s love, he does not experience weariness as he follows the Lord his God. Rather, following the prophet Jeremiah, he withstands every type of reproach and hardship without even harboring an evil thought toward any man.

For Jeremiah warns us: Do not say: “We are the Lord’s temple”. Neither should you say: “Faith alone in our Lord Jesus Christ can save me.” By itself faith accomplishes nothing.  For even the devils believe and shudder.

No, faith must be joined to an active love of God which is expressed in good works. The charitable man is distinguished by sincere and long-suffering service to his fellow man: it also means using things aright.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this:

to look after orphans and widows in their distress and
to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

(James 1:27)


Say what you want, comment on what other people said,
comment on people’s comments.
Keep it civil.  Treehouse rules, but expect lots of QAnon.

      1. Related note: There is actually no US constitutional requirement that states divide themselves into districts.

        At one point the Supreme Court decided that states could not impose additional requirements on congresspukes (e.g., term limits) but I have no idea if anyone has ever brought up “having to live in a district” as a possible violation of this. It may be that many states don’t require it in any case.

    1. BULLSHIT on “conspiracy theorist”.

      He did this for CANKLES.

      It was ANYTHING TO SAVE CANKLES, and thereby SAVE HIMSELF.

      What the Dems are doing now is SMART.

      – They are covering up their socialist history with Russia.
      – They are CONTAINING THE DAMAGE in the FBI by cutting it off at McCabe.
      – They are SAVING the core of the infection in KGB-CIA.
      – THIS is part of the turning point in the narrative that Q was talking about.
      – THIS is cover-up of the VLWC (vast left-wing conspiracy)
      – They are saving Halper so it doesn’t overturn Watergate history
      – They are desperate to preserve the “Q = conspiracy theory” narrative

      Sorry, wicked Dems. Your entire schtick needs to be UPROOTED and THROWN ON THE BURN PILE.

        1. Thanks! I had an amazing night last night. There are certain problems that I can’t solve in a waking mental state – I have to be in a dream state (I love having “too much” introspection on my own brain – very useful). I can sometimes bring some kind of lower-D projection of the dreamish realization back as a thought-image which can be assessed in a waking state and THOSE ASSESSMENTS then put into words.

          That’s the background.

          What I realized last night is a larger statement about religion, science, “The Plan”, THE PLAN, and reality in a larger sense. I was able to achieve a state in which I could check almost arbitrarily for logical consistency between problems, solutions, relationships among these things, and I was FINDING IT.

          Within these thoughts, “Trust The Plan” is simply a subset, but I was finding consistency both within it, across it, and into or out of it, in relationship to the larger framework of things which are not yet revealed and may not be revealed.

          All of this was really good. An aspect of it that I could in some ways describe as a “safety margin” was surprisingly good.

          Furthermore – based on the “knowability” of what I was experiencing – I’m very certain that the Q folks know exactly what I’m talking about. This is WHY they say “Trust The Plan”. They get that safety margin, and likely got it a long time ago.

          1. Wolf, I’m a pretty smart guy, but I don’t pretend that I get *everything* that you say.

            In the main, for me, it matters not.

            “problems that I can’t solve in a waking mental state”

            Our mind are bifurcated. In the waking state, critical thinking rules (analytic; destructive from the get-go); but in the sleeping state, what I call “optical thinking” (positive; creative from the start) rules.

            In short, the “yes” mind rules sleep, and the “no” mind rules wakefulness.

            We need BOTH. Furthermore, the waking “no” mind is PREDICATED on the “yes” mind of sleep. Negation is predicative; it MUST have a “something” to negate. This is why the optical mind rules FIRST.

            IMO, of course! Yet I’ve found it to be true, and the advice to “sleep on it” make good sense, in this context. When one wakes from sleep, one has a better perspective – one which likely couldn’t have been gained while staying awake. We need both halves of our mind, to better understand.

            Sleep is time for PROCESSING, both physically, and mentally. For body AND mind …

                “destructive logic”

                Has it been proven that the “logic” we’re familiar with is the ONLY TYPE of logic? I put the same question, in re mathematics.

                Here’s a wonderful clue: NO! we haven’t “finished” logic. And NO! we haven’t “finished” math. There is a greater logic; there is a greater math. Thank God!

            2. ES, thanks for expanding on this…I recently took responsibility for what was becoming an increasingly emotional conflict in a group of women…imagine that..anyway it was an evening that I hosted the group and let the issue slide without addressing it when it came up and I could have addressed it but I wrongly thought it was not a big deal to anyone because if the issue had directly affected me it would not have been a big deal..still learning what seems really trivial to me is NOT trivial to everyone.

              Listening to discussions between a few after most had left though I knew I needed to figure out how to smooth out the ruffles. Then after everyone left, I began sorting through facts and played around with ways to best address my desire to correct the result my inaction that at the core caused the conflict…the next morning when I woke up, the answer was incredibly clear and it worked and everyone is happy including me who now knows that particular issue is NOT trivial to a few in the group!

              Your statement, “Sleep is time for PROCESSING” is so true but I haven’t learned to consciously use the dream state WM uses so effectively. 😉

                You don’t need to – and in fact, one cannot “consciously” use the unconscious mind. It happens all on its own! Sleep IS the “dream state” – no effort required! One needn’t “use” it … it presents automatically.

            1. The “safety margin” you speak of has to do with what/when disclosures happen?

              That’s one really big aspect of it. It also includes societal choices and historical development.

              Everybody sees this stuff from their own perspective, wherein different things loom large in terms of importance and priority. What I was seeing was a lot of “event room”, where there was a lot of tolerance for differences in orders of understanding, choices, etc. I could see this from different perspectives.

              The system seemed less fragile than I’ve worried it might be. That implied good design at some deep level, which is consistent with one of the ideas juggling within this – the idea that the periodic table (basically an output of the functions of the parameters of quantum mechanics) is not as DANGEROUS of a wheat-chaff sorter as I suddenly thought it might be, when I realized that it probably WAS a wheat-chaff sorter. The question of WHY the periodic table has certain output properties is a fascinating idea, but ignoring that, and just saying “how do we deal with those (both known and hypothetical)?”, I realized that the very fact that we can SEE that it’s a wheat-chaff sorter speaks to a kind of design safety which is biased toward the “God end” of intelligence and away from the satanic. This is true even if one frames the “Goddish” stuff atheistically – that the property is an evolutionary bias property of the multiverse, toward greater intelligence.

              All of this is deeply tied to the idea that humanity has to have spiritual development commensurate with technological development. And there are other reasons why I was seeing more safety than previously in THAT STUFF, too, but I want to think about those ideas more before discussing them.

                I think we will all be interested to hear more about “the idea that humanity has to have spiritual development commensurate with technological development”. Sounds way above my pay grade but I am curious and teachable….

              1. Ii believe anyone with a strong enough motive, such as you, can increase their skill at sending messages from the sleep world to the waking world. (My trust is in the One who guides that skill development, not in our own talents though.)

                Here’s another question to play with. In the Law as given by G-d to the Israelites through Moses, the temple sacrifices include a morning and evening sacrifice. Presumably to sanctify time.

                As the time of sunset and sunrise are always moving throughout the year, this requires forethought to plan and track with a moving time target. And as many spiritual people have noted the human spirit opens to awe more readily during that period when the sun rises or sets.

                I’ve been mulling this over for a while. Is G-d setting up a framework where He leads in the dance to deepen relationship? Or is there more to this?

They have helicopters that can hover over a neighborhood and completely cut off all power, as well as put everyone into a somnambulent, almost zombie-like state. Then they simply walk into, or break into, the houses and round people up.

                Sorry, but I can see no way we, as citizens, could possibly prevail without the military on our side. THAT is another subject that would need to be addressed. How many would stand with the American people? TBH, IDK.

    1. The basis of this series is that if we just try to understand our enemies we can all live in peace and harmony together.

      We can’t tame dragons. In classical Christian symbology, and the Bible, dragons symbolize evil. More specifically, they symbolize the devil.

      The recent trend of using traditional symbols of evil and making them into hero’s and symbols of good is as subversive as it gets.

      Traditional fairy tales were meant to educate children about the nature of good and evil. The modern “updates” have eliminated this in favor of moral relativism.

      Most people don’t see this for what it is, and they just enjoy the entertainment. But don’t forget that a lot of people who run our corporate media conglomerates hate Christianity. The use of traditional morals in children’s entertainment is under attack.

      That said, my own kids have seen these movies. But they watch them with the knowledge that they come from a different cultural persoective than our own, and we compare and contrast the films we watch to what a traditional Christian worldview would be.

        I respect your view, but I do not agree, in this instance, with the story.
        Most of hollywierd is in a truly bad place. Once in a while, those who are in positions to do better storytelling will.

        1. Deb and Zoe, I agree with you both.

          Satan does his dirtiest deeds when he can either convince people that he doesn’t exist, or that he convinces them to compromise “oh, it’s not THAT bad” or “it’s only a white lie”, or, Hollywood’s favorite, “white magic isn’t bad, only black magic is”… Except that both black and white are MAGICK, and from Satan himself.

          We have to “test the spirits” and discern whether or not we are being conned or misled. Halloween, for instance, is actually the highest satanic witchcraft holiday (Samhain) of them all. Carneval / Mardigras / Fasching (where they put on the masks of the Allemannen [the ones who used to burn people alive]) is a derivative of that. As is Burning Man.

          http://www.crossroad.to has much more information on these, including articles by a former Satanic Black Magick Illuminised Witch (the most evil and powerful of all; the same order as Hill-the-BEAST and BeezleBubba). He turned from his evil ways, repented, and is now a Born-Again Christian (thank GOD). He has to remain anonymous due to threats on his life (and soul) made by his former coven. I know the latter can happen, as we have an acquaintance here who was involved with Satanism, and was threatened so terribly that she had to move far away and change her identity. She had stories of what they did or tried to do (in revenge) that are horrifying.

          Many people think it’s just a game, or somehow “cute”. It isn’t, and can result in an eternity in hell.

          http://www.cuttingedge.org goes into the issues much more deeply (also talks about “The Clinton Christmas Tree”). It’s ultra-conservative, but he’s pretty much “seen it all” from his background and colleagues.

          Also there is a great Christian research site https://www.lighthousetrails.com who have many articles, booklets and books.

          Finally, here are some links from crossroad.to (Berrit Kjos, who wrote “Brave New Schools”, an investigation of the creeping New-Age and other perversions entering our school systems).

  5. Helping others who are extremely ungrateful can be an interesting experience, where *I* learn a lot. However, that is not the only potential benefit. Often we have no knowledge of whether our actions will affect the other person positively and receive gratitude or do good down the line, long after our world-lines part ways. Moreover, we do nothing in a vacuum, and STILL OTHERS observe what we do.

    All of this speaks in favor of helping the ungrateful.

    HOWEVER….

    Nevertheless, I think there is room for us to be discerning in whether we are actually doing God’s work when we ATTEMPT to help others. It is a TRICKY subject, and I believe it is one where Satan has a deep understanding of how to trick us into fulfilling his plans, blunting our own efforts, etc.

    Satan gets us to see things too simplistically, or with too great complexity, so that we “miss the mark”. If our actions are funding Chinese concentration camps, or encouraging the spread of socialist error, then we are likely missing the mark.

    Satan’s smart play here has WEAKENED both Christianity and Judaism while propping up socialism and satanism. We need to PLAY SMART. Sometimes that looks mean to some people.

    1. “Helping others who are extremely ungrateful”

      I prefer to spend much, much MOAR time helping FIRST those who are likely to be grateful.

      Too many people rely simply on their own intentions to “help” – and disregard the negative feedback when what they WANTED to be so (that the person was, in fact, helped), turns out NOT to be so.

      “Well, I tried!” doesn’t cut it, for me.

      I see an opportunity to quote Tolkien, once again (so FUN!):

      [conversation between Frodo and Gildor, Elf-lord, upon a “chance” meeting at the Quest’s beginning]:

      [Gildor] “‘[…] The choice is yours: to go or to wait.'”

      [Frodo] “‘And it is also said,’ answered Frodo: ‘Go not to the Elves for counsel, for they will say both no and yes.'”

      [Gildor] “‘Is it indeed?’ laughed Gildor. ‘Elves seldom give unguarded advice, for advice is a dangerous gift, even from the wise to the wise, and all courses may run ill.’ […]”

      (As an aside, if you liked the movies – you’ll REALLY like the books. Fakewood did their usual number on Tolkien, too … they took out the ETHICS.)

      1. While Kellyanne has publicly been a staunch advocate of VSGPDJT’s policies, It is my belief that in PRIVATE … she despises them. As does her husband.

        She has served well … but I prefer those who actually – in public and in private – support our President.

        She’s professional, yes. But in times like these, it isn’t quite enough. I suspect the political “rift” between her and her husband isn’t, in truth, a rift at all … but rather, a consonance of perspective.

        I suspect she won’t last much longer, even though she IS doing her job.

        But her heart isn’t “into” it. Her loyalty is professional, rather than personal ALSO.

        That being said, she’s done great. But, IMO, it’s time (soon) she step aside.

    It’s from the Office of Readings in the Liturgy of the Hours for February 24, 2019.

    Selection from the chapters On Charity by Saint Maximus the confessor, abbot

    Charity [caritas or agape in Greek] is a right attitude of mind which prefers nothing to the knowledge of God. If a man possesses any strong attachment to the things of this earth, he cannot possess true charity. For anyone who really loves God prefers to know and experience God rather than his creatures. The whole set and longing of his mind is ever directed toward him.

    For God is far superior to all his creation, since everything which exists has been made by God and for him. And so, in deserting God, who is beyond compare, for the inferior works of creation, a man shows that he values God, the author of creation, less than creation itself.

    The Lord himself reminds us: Whoever loves me will keep my commandments. And this is my commandment: that you love one another. So the man who does not love his neighbor does not obey God’s command. But one who does not obey his command cannot love God. A man is blessed if he can love all men equally. Moreover, if he truly loves God, he must love his neighbor absolutely. Such a man cannot hoard his wealth. Rather, like God himself, he generously gives from his own resources to each man according to his needs.

    Since he imitates God’s generosity, the only distinction he draws is the person’s need. He does not distinguish between a good man and a bad one, a just man and one who is unjust. Yet his own goodness of will makes him prefer the man who strives after virtue to the one who is depraved.

    A charitable mind is not displayed simply in giving money; it is manifested still more by personal service as well as by the communication of God’s word to others: In fact, if a man’s service toward his brothers is genuine and if he really renounces worldly concerns, he is freed from selfish desires. For he now shares in God’s own knowledge and love. Since he does possess God’s love, he does not experience weariness as he follows the Lord his God. Rather, following the prophet Jeremiah, he withstands every type of reproach and hardship without even harboring an evil thought toward any man.

    For Jeremiah warns us: Do not say: “We are the Lord’s temple”. Neither should you say: “Faith alone in our Lord Jesus Christ can save me.” By itself faith accomplishes nothing. For even the devils believe and shudder.

    No, faith must be joined to an active love of God which is expressed in good works. The charitable man is distinguished by sincere and long-suffering service to his fellow man: it also means using things aright.

    1. Charity, caritas, agape.

      I always found the difference in the 1 Corinthians 13 love litany translation in the older English versions to be telling. This is the Douay Rheims in the late 16th century.

      http://drbo.org/chapter/53013.htm

      [4] Charity is patient, is kind: charity envieth not, dealeth not perversely; is not puffed up; [5] Is not ambitious, seeketh not her own, is not provoked to anger, thinketh no evil;

      [6] Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth with the truth; [7] Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. [8] Charity never falleth away: whether prophecies shall be made void, or tongues shall cease, or knowledge shall be destroyed. [9] For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. [10] But when that which is perfect is come, that which is in part shall be done away.

    “Investigators arrested Teresa Lynne Roth, 34, on Thursday after she spent nearly two years forcing her son to take 28 medications and medical treatments for nonexistent medical conditions, the Associated Press reported.

    The five-year-old took multiple medications, had been confined to a wheelchair, and used a feeding tube even though he was not ill, deputies said.”

    “The case began in 2016, when doctors at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta were treating the child, who was three years old at the time, for several medical conditions which investigators say were fabricated.

    Health care workers then alerted the Department of Family and Children’s Services (DFCS) and local authorities. DFCS removed the child from Roth’s home in October 2018, and authorities investigated Roth.

    Authorities arrested Roth, who faces charges of first-degree child cruelty.”

      1. Could he be more tone deaf? Juxtapose this clip with that short clip of (equally repulsive) Michael Moore explaining why Donald Trump was going to win the election. It’s fascinating…VSGPDJT has them spinning in every conceivable direction. The guests on his show were actually laughing at what he was saying…although if you listen carefully you might detect some uncomfortable, nervous laughter…not quite sure…

      2. I could never stand him but did not realize how really evil he was. I knew Coulter was friendly with him long ago but didn’t know how friendly. Yuck. I used to be amused by her, but now I see her snarky comments in a whole different light. Disgusting. Did not know she held us all in contempt, but she must agree with him, and how could others mentioned be friends of these people unless they are just as evil? Makes me really wonder about Conway, who I used to like.

  20. Oh really?

    Kamala’s family were slave owners?

    .
    I hope this story gets traction.

    Several years ago, I read a statistic at the Census Bureau site that showed there is a larger percentage of black citizens here…who are here from Immigration, than from decendents of slaves.

    But that was before 8 years of Hussein.
    I recently tried to find that statistic again, on the Census Bureau site…and couldn’t find it.
    It has either been scrubbed or hidden very well.

    1. I saw that too, T3…and yeah, saddening.
      But also maddening.

      It is probably due to the Islamification of the UK.
      By contrast, muslims are allowed to openly proselytize on the streets…and hold pro-islam marches.

      But Christians are arrested for doing the same!
