Communists & fascists:The Totalitarian Tag-Team

Reader comment on item: Fascism's Legacy: Liberalism

Submitted by Alan Hootnick (Chile), Jan 10, 2008 at 09:06

I wholeheartedly agree with "Fascism's Legacy: Liberalism". It is not really so mind-boggling when you consider that historically, the forces of evil & paganism have always fought against freedom and the belief in the universal One God. One day, their enemy was the Kingdom of Israel; in a later period they persecuted Christians. In the last few centuries, political ideologies have clashed. But what is most important to remember is the fact that the oppressors and pagans always manifest themselves in two or more movements so that if one falls the other one is ready to take its place.

The totalitarians work like a tag-team in wrestling; when Nazism fell, Communism was right there to jump into the ring and continue the battle against liberty and belief in the One God. When Communism fell, terrorist Islamists have taken their place. And when the terrorist Islamists finally wither away, I believe that China will jump into the ring and continue the struggle. China is, after all, governed by an ideology and a religious tradition which is in conflict with Judeo-Christian beliefs. However, if China is unsuccessful, then it will be the task of the "enemy within us" -- that is, the "devils dressed up as saints" -- who will try to subvert us inside our societies by way of so-called "liberalism" which is, in fact, the disguise of the Western totalitarians.
