I write this blog laying out my best ideas, criticisms, and hopes for world. We have a lot of fun here, i will admit that, but underneath the smirk there is a serious attempt to understand the world i live in.
One day i come up with a turly amazing idea, and give it my best shot. I write my idea down and them wait for the world to recive me in all my glory. While i am waiting and learning more about the world i discover that my idea has been done for many years.
My idea: Why god is a socialist and what man can do about it. Some other smuck's idea: Heaven on Earth: The Rise and Fall of Socialism
The phrase "Heaven on Earth" in the context of the book is lifted from a phrase by Moses Hess who, in his Communist Confession of Faith, noted that while Christians imagine a heavenly joy "We, on the other hand, will have this heaven on earth." It's exactly this kind of religious fervor for the concepts of socialism (and communism - the terms are used interchangeably) that gave socialist regimes the license to do whatever it took to cram Paradise down people's throats. And when people rejected the "freedom" offered to them, the results were horrific: Mussolini's Italy, Stalin's Soviet Republic, and Mao's China. In total, Muravchik estimates that more than 100 million people were murdered in the name of socialism since 1917
