Neocon Chameleons Return As Progressives

The decline and closure of the neocon flagship journal, The Weekly Standard, did not slow the neocons at all. They are back with a new publication funded by a left-wing billionaire, but preaching from the same neocon playbook. Why do neocons continue to change their stripes, from Trotskyites in the 1930’s, to Reagan conservatives, to Hillary-ite liberals? On today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:

  1. The Neocons have no loyalty to anybody or anything other than AIPAC and their Zionist ideology. No surprise

  2. “Socialism *is* the use of violence.”

    Wow, not even close. Socialism is communal, sharing. It doesn’t sit well with the greedy hogs at the trough like the Rand followers like Paul Ryan et al. If anything, that unregulated “free trade” society would lead to even greater wealth disparities than we have today, leading to a few “haves” and an increasing number of “have nothings,” which would lead down the rabbit hole of unrest and insurrection, because when you have nothing to lose…

    1. All socialism is based on force. Violent predators who want to deny that try to say “Look! it has the word ‘social’ in it, its just about sharing and social community.” Nice try.

    2. Mork, State socialism is, like any other manifestation of the State, based on violence. If you don’t believe that, try not paying your taxes, and see how benevolent the State is to you.

      The system we have now is not anything close to a free market, it is mostly socialism and fascism. And that’s the whole point, that socialism leads to fascism. Once you grant the State the power to plunder (for a good cause!), you can’t complain when that power is mostly used to redistribute from the poor and middle class to the rich. The State is owned, lock, stock, and barrel by the richest of men, and it cannot be otherwise. Trying to deny the gun violence that is the enforcement mechanism of State socialism is either an act of dishonesty, or else an egregious example of a lack of perception.

      Don’t be deceived by the rhetoric. Those politicians using words like “compassion” and “helping” are, for the most part, concerned about only one thing: power. The gun is the only tool they have, so don’t be surprised when it is used against you.
