Hi, Hrothgar. You said,

The new neo-Marxist establishment nurtured by the Socialists hate their own culture and find in it only shame and oppression.

This is true. I have wondered for years, how a people can hate their own people and culture so much, they want to destroy them. Your article reminded me of my young days, studying Socialist and Communist ideas. Those systems are based upon the notion that the present ruling class (and the vast majority of ordinary citizens, who vote to keep it in power) is somehow evil, and must be destroyed. Communist doctrine goes so far, as to say that the entire country must be destroyed, and rebuilt from scratch -- something that happened during the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, after which the only moving vehicle left was a British tank. Besides this physical destruction, both Communism and Socialism state as their goal the complete transformation of the minds of the people, along with millenia-cherished moral values.

It's little wonder, then, that Socialists like the British Labor Party and the US Democratic Party should cater so much to the Islamists, against their own culture; because destroying their own culture has been their goal all along.

The pie-in-the-sky "end vision" of Socialism is a "worker's paradise" and a "re-educated" "new man" who thinks only Socialist thoughts. This has never happened, anywhere; but the destruction I noted has happened many times.
