Six Sentence Story- China, Communism, and Political Conformity

PROMPT WORD:  CENTER

In 1966, Mao Zedong founder and chair of the Chinese Communist Party, initiated The Cultural Revolution specific to ridding any evidence of Capitalism, former Chinese cultural norms, and all resistance to his goal of complete government control.

The population was immediately divided against itself while young people were educated with the ‘Party’ ideology and encouraged to knock down historical statues and intimidate (with force) anyone who objected.

The Chinese people thus became slaves to constant fear and eagerly ‘turned in’ their neighbors, family, and friends to government officials who immediately made -those merely accused- repeatedly confess and apologize for, ‘thought crimes’ against the regime until they exhibited the ‘proper brain-washing’.

Laogai (prisons) were set up for ‘troublemakers’ ( free-thinkers) where re-education was claimed to take place but starvation, torture, and hard labor took the lives of more than 20 million people over the entire movement.

At the center of all this, private property, personal choice, and human dignity, were eliminated due to communism (its gateway drug is socialism) as the Chinese Communist Party remains in power to this day with about one million enslaved political and religious prisoners.

NIKE manufacturing in China uses Uighur slave labor to make their shoes, Disney and most of Hollywood take direction on content from China, and many wealthy, politically powerful people, promote Communist China’s propaganda at prestigious universities and in media throughout the World … I thought you should know.

Warning…a political opinion from the right!

I dislike numbers…sorry, I just do.

First, there isn’t a poll worth a darn. They are too variable in the way the questions are asked, where and when, as well.

If you agree with the poll, it is a good one.

If the poll is contrary to your belief, well, what do they know?

Another thing, numbers lie. Yup, they do. Darn them!

Go to a bank and ask for a mortgage. Give them your numbers…get the mortgage. Oops…you Can afford the house BUT no birthdays,anniversaries,take-out food,Christmas, auto repairs etc. What the heck?

Numbers can be manipulated more than bleeding heart liberals. You can do the math but why doesn’t it work. Yes, love is NOT the answer to all things either.

Sounds great…who could be FOR war, FOR debt, FOR being poor?

So, why don’t we just all be poor so no one who IS feels left out?

Well folks. That’s where we are headed. I am in political mode today so if you’ve tuned out…I understand.

If you are still listening?

You either agree with me or you are really insulted and want to add another hatefully “paraphrased” rant of the right, just to keep your juices flowing. After all, if you didn’t think the “right” was so evil, you’d have nothing to do but look at the problem?

Ain’t I a stinker?

I just want to know from anyone, how does one continue forever(or happily ever-after), when they spend more than they take-in?

Simple question.

If you answered, they cannot go on forever. What will the eventual outcome be?

Just asking?

Maybe if we spend more money (we don’t have) , we can put off the ugly truth awhile?

Yes, you just may…

OK kids, this is tough. If everyone is poor and the government shares the wealth, what is that called in the encyclopedia?

Fairness? No.

Brotherhood? No.

Can you say Socialism boys and girls?

Ha! Wish it was that simple to explain…our kids will know it all too well one day.

Wish they could see this headline. “Bad ole conservatives tried to ruin your day so we liberals ruined your future.”

I’m spending the weekend in the woods. At least, my head won’t be in the sand…
