You read the title right. Socialism which is a euphemism for communism is the opiate of the masses. Not God-centric religion as the founder of the Communist religion Karl Marx stated.
My point will be easily made. What does an opiate actually do to a person? It changes their perception of reality. It makes them see things not as they are but in some twisted manner that it is not. It is an aberration of reality and truth.
As human beings we only have our physical senses and our studies of nature. Building on research and science to understand and know our reality. We have hundreds of years of scientifically proven studies that give us true clarity. We know that there are two sexes, male and female. We know the earth is round and it revolves around the sun. And we know that death comes to all men.
However, enter the socialists. They believe that all truth is not immutable. They believe that every individual can determine their own inner reality, as long as it does not upset the ruling power. They have opened the flood gates of lies that have no basis in science to extol that there are more than 50 sexes. They believe that a baby is not a human being unless you want it. They believe that sexual relations are purely for pleasure.
These are all lies. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. They believe that only by the destruction of the existing political systems can they bring in their Communist Utopia. This is done by building on more lies and pitting people against each other. By falsely creating division and the mentality of Men vs. Women, Black Vs. White, Right Vs. Left. These lies, they spend their lives promoting and fomenting to destroy all that is good. Because the socialist beleive, most people are too stupid to take care of themsleves.
They ignore reality and fact. This is because they have taken a full drink of their opiate. Their false religion of Communism. A religion which is totalitarian and will strip every individual of their rights. The communist religion has been tried, and they deny it claiming it has never been done correctly.
Meanwhile, since its inception in 1917 from the Bolshevik revolution until now over One hundred forty-nine million people have been killed by the regimes or starved to death. That is 149,000,000- dead. Each country that has turned to this socialist agenda has been decimated. The people are mere slaves to the state and have no ability to improve their place in life.
So much of Latin America has fallen to this ideology and been destroyed. The most recent obvious case is that of Venezuela. A once wealthy country, although imperfect, once boasted a strong growing economy. Now they are a disaster, their people luckily are not on an island and are fleeing in the hundreds of thousands to other countries for safety and food.
Then you have the communist country of Cuba spreading their lies throughout Latin America while its people are starving to death. The average person in Cuba earning less than $30 a month. Nowhere in the world can anyone survive on this. A person can go on and on with more examples of the disasters of the Marxist religion.
Getting back to my point. With all these existing facts and realities about the effects of the implementation of their ideology, how can you not say that the Socialists must be on some kind of hallucinogenic?
It is apropos that Karl Marx first made that claim about the widely held religions in the world. The simple reason is that the playbook of the socialist is to always accuse others of the evils they actually represent.
Christians and Jews have been around for thousands of years and even Muslims over 1,500 years. They live to their moral code in the hopes of a reaching heaven after this world. They have existed under multiple different governments but never have they lied to themselves about simple realities and facts in this existing reality. The people of the United States of America need to wake up to truth, not to false realities perpetuated by the socialist in our society, it is time to fight back simply by presenting the facts.
