I’ve written a bit of alternate history, and “what-if” scenarios are rather fascinating to me. As things are now, an unholy alliance of wealthy globalists and cultural Marxists (including Social Justice Warriors) are holding the reins of power. Suppose that somehow a Marxist-Leninist style political system emerged in the USA? Perhaps this might be the result of a coup, or SJWs assuming power and rediscovering their movement’s Communist roots. Either way, what would happen in a United Soviet Socialist America?
If Marxist-Leninists take over, who would benefit?
In the beginning, the limousine liberals – all the insanely rich leftist rock stars, Hollywood types, and media figures – surely would be delighted, until they find out that redistribution of wealth includes them too. Anyone who complained too much about their greatly diminished status will be first in line to a labor camp in Alaska. Actually, it would be rather amusing to see a bunch of leftist celebrities sawing timber in sub-zero temperatures.
Surely the SJWs would be delighted too. For so long, they had dreamed of assuming power and walking tall among the revolutionary vanguard. Before, they were nobodies, orchestrating Internet smear campaigns from their dorm rooms or their mothers’ basements, but soon they’ll be ruling in the USSA’s Central Committee. Well, all these armchair Lenins might have a rude awakening! As KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov stated in an interview:
For example, your leftists in [the] United States: all these professors and all these beautiful civil rights defenders. They are instrumental in the process of the subversion only to destabilize a nation. When their job is completed, they are not needed any more. They know too much. Some of them, when they get disillusioned, when they see that Marxist-Leninists come to power – obviously they get offended – they think that they will come to power. That will never happen, of course. They will be lined up against the wall and shot.
Then Bezmenov goes into detail about countries where this happened. Further on:
Interviewer: And yet these people have been programmed, and as you say, in place who are favorable to an opening of the Soviet concept. These are the very people who would be marked for extermination in this country?
Bezmenov: Most of them, yes. Simply because the psychological shock when they will see in [the] future what the beautiful society of ‘equality’ and ‘social justice’ means in practice, obviously they will revolt. They will be very unhappy, frustrated people, and the Marxist-Leninist regime does not tolerate these people. Obviously they will join the leagues of dissenters (dissidents). Unlike in [the] present United States there will be no place for dissent in future Marxist-Leninist America. Here you can get popular like Daniel Ellsberg and filthy-rich like Jane Fonda for being ‘dissident,’ for criticizing your Pentagon. In [the] future these people will be simply [squashing sound] squashed like cockroaches. Nobody is going to pay them nothing for their beautiful, noble ideas of equality. This they don’t understand and it will be [the] greatest shock for them, of course.
Ouch! Even those who do get cushy jobs in the Central Committee might not end up so well. I could write a book about the good things that Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin did, which would be one page long and mostly blank. Item one would be that he had all the leading Old Guard Communists killed.
So what about the gays, lesbians, and transgendered? Their movement has been courted by the left, so will they finally get things the way they want in the USSA, comes the Revolution? Actually, I hardly can think of how the present-day Federal government possibly could bend over backwards for them more. By contrast, in the Soviet Union, they were sent to mental institutions. Even if the USSA doesn’t go that far, the leaders certainly would have no use for any further antics on their part. So much for the great transgendered bathroom debate!
How about racial minorities? The Communists have tried to get American Blacks on their side ever since a certain strategy meeting between Vyacheslav Molotov and FDR’s pal “Uncle Joe”. However, after the Revolution, they would be well-advised to keep a low profile. These days, rioting and assassinations of police officers by BLM fans are treated as isolated incidents. However, using history as a guide, the USSR had quite a tradition of sending ethnic groups deemed insufficiently loyal to remote areas. On the positive side of the equation, places like Detroit, East St. Louis, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Birmingham would get a fresh start. Likewise, under a Communist regime, Hispanics who dream of taking over the Southwest and giving “Aztlan” back to Mexico would end up getting exactly what they deserve.
What about all the millions on public assistance? They’ve been a very useful voting bloc for the left, but they would become dead weight in the USSA. Mitt Romney, during the Presidential race, was recorded on a hidden camera pointing out that “there are 47% who are with [Obama], who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it… 47% of Americans pay no income tax.” He took a lot of heat for this; mainly because the truth hurts. Today, taxes are subsidizing a great number of able-bodied citizens who can work, but either can’t find a job, have given up hope, or don’t want to work. In the USSA, this no longer would be an option for them. As Comrade Lenin put it, “Who does not work, does not eat.” At least this would do wonders for our country’s obesity problem.
All told, those who dream of a Communist revolution should be careful what they wish for! Granted, Marxist-Leninist style Communism is unlikely to take root here. A more probable “what-if” scenario would be where our present-day soft despotism becomes a more hardcore variety (perhaps following an engineered “national emergency”), or a few decades down the road when the population replacement policy turns the USA into a third world slum. (That was initiated with Ted Kennedy’s 1965 immigration act, similar to the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan going on in Europe.) Even then, there would be many unpleasant surprises awaiting those who thought any of this was “progress”.
