If religion is opium, Marxism is cyanide pill

Karl Marx, founder of the Marxist cult, had declared religion to be opium of the masses capable of intoxicating people into artificial/superficial joy. What does Marxist cult do? Anything other than poisoning and destroying masses after intoxicating them into false glory of equality? So, which is better of the two?

The man on the right, Sangeeth, is Guru swamy for young activists who tried to go to Sabarimala. He is also a ‘Kiss of Love’ activist and a staunch Marxist. The Communist strategy has always been to “corrupt the young, get them away from religion, get them interested in sex. Make them superficial, destroy their ruggedness.”

First activity that Marxists undertakes is destroy entire cultural heritage and somehow convert everyone into empty-headed zombies, to create space in their minds so as to allow the venomous doctrine of Marxism to establish itself in their minds. And these Marxists would go to any extent to wreak destruction. Their limit is no limit at all. Post 1947, these enemies of the nation have caused havoc to nation’s education system. With the bogey of so-called saffronisation, these foes forced removal of all chapters from school text-books that related to freedom movement, cultural values, rich heritage, traditions etc. Consequences are there for all to see today in the form of social tensions, rising crime-graph, all sorts of social problems etc. Not very long ago in China, Chinese workers used to be entertained through recitation-reading of Mao’s Red Book during lunch-breaks. Lenin had no patience for intelligentsia whether bourgeoisie or the worker/peasant variety. He was so categorical in declaring, “In general as you all probably know, I am not particularly fond of intelligentsia and our new slogan ‘eliminate illiteracy’ should by no means be taken as expressing a wish to give birth to a new intelligentsia. To ‘eliminate illiteracy’ is necessary only so that every peasant, every worker can read our decrees, orders and appeals by himself without anyone’s help. The goal is purely practical. That’s all there is to it.” And more of it, “…the bourgeoisie and it’s accomplices, those smart little intellectuals, the lackeys of capital who fancy themselves the nation’s brains. In point of fact, they are not brains but shit.” Since Marxists have to remain abreast of whatever happens in the world of intelligentsia /educational institutions, they maintain their quota of “creative intellectuals / eminent historians / secular gems” in all educational / research bodies. Sometimes they force government to raise an institution dedicated to the cause. Jawaharlal Nehru University based in New Delhi is a ‘bourgeoisie-eminent-secular’ example that showcases the rot quite eminently. Disgraceful affair of Boris Pasternak and hounding of Andre Sakharov/Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn are too well known. Marxists in this country can very well exclaim in a fit of joyous, reflexive intolerance like Khrushchev, “We are not giving up Stalin to anyone.”

Frank Dikotter in his recently published book titled the tragedy of liberation writes that about 70 million people were killed in China by the end of Mao’s regime and policies, surpassing both Hitler and Stalin in terms of death and destruction. Terror was an integral part of entire Maoism. Teams were given quotas of people who had to be denounced, humiliated, beaten, dispossessed and then slaughtered. Jung Chang and Jon Halliday wrote in their book titled, Mao: The Unknown Story that Mao was a man who actually detested peasants. When peasants were starving in 1950, Mao instructed them to eat less and less…the so-called revolutionary had some 50 villas across China for his protection and comforts. Mao would have been certainly disappointed by the miniscule number of innocents being killed by leftists in the country. Tales of torture and depravity keep appearing in media from North Korea. In so far as man-slaughter regime of Russian dictator Marshall Joseph Stalin is concerned, less said the better.

During sixties, they deliberately ruined the national economy through bodies like Planning Commission, then coined the ludicrous phrase Hindu rate of growth. As if ridiculing themselves. By the way, is there a single Marxist economy that has been able to raise a nation from the state of wretchedness to the state of being developing / developed nation? Certainly, none. They derisively coined the phrase cow-belt completely disregarding cow/cattle based agriculture that is self-sustaining and cancer-free, that allowed this country remain prosperous, which is nothing but betraying their sick minds. No wonder, they provided all the so-called intellectual arguments to MA Jinnah to justify vivisection of the country. They hate religion, particularly (probably because Hinduism  is the oldest and imperishable faith) yet create a theocratic state wherever they are able to grab power by hook or by crook. And they nourish the theocratic state mercilessly and brutally, too.

When Hinduism began resurgence during nineties, these smart Marxist-Johnnies changed track immediately to avoid a suicidal end of the cult and began stressing virtues of a secular/submissive Hinduism, separated it from the assertive Hinduism  demanding recall of its glory trampled hitherto, by the invaders /invading ideologies. By intention and by design, they overlooked intolerance and exclusivism of Semitic religions like Islam, Judaism and Christianity. They ignored the empire building agenda of desert religions like Islam and Christianity as well as the lofty spirit of Vasudhaiva kutumbakum prevailing among Hindus. It shall not be impertinent to quote Encyclopedia Britannica (as they would not believe Vedas if quoted) : “In principle, Hinduism  incorporates all forms of belief and worship without necessitating selection or elimination of any. Hindu  is inclined to revere the divine in every manifestation, whatever it may be, is doctrinally tolerant…Hindu  may embrace a non-Hindu  religion without ceasing to be a Hindu…he tends to believe that highest divine powers complement one another for the well-being of the world and mankind.”  And Marxists floated the theory that Buddhism/Jainism/Sikhism are separate faiths, independent of Hinduism.

Venomous cult of Marxism has evolved into cults of Maoism/Naxalism, still more terror oriented, that too of the brutal variety. Anti-national Marxists peddle Maoism/Naxalism sometimes as an agrarian movement without even knowing what an agrarian movement means. They must learn and follow agrarian movements unleashed by worthies like Vinoba Bhave/Jaiprakash Narayan /Charan Singh or even Jagjivan Ram to understand how an effective agrarian movement can be worked out without resorting to AK-47, landmines, grenades etc. They never abducted District Magistrates to drive home their agrarian ideology.

If the entire bloodbath is all about lack of rural development, it is a horrible argument to say the least. Why are they non-receptive to almost 20 years of rural development programmes in the hinterlands? Why do they kidnap a government official known for his orientation for rural development and excellent performance? Why do they kidnap a tribal MLA who wins with a margin of 92,000 votes deep in tribal regions? Why do they landmine /grenade-attack government officials entering into tribal areas to implement rural development schemes? Then they disrupt electoral process, stop voters from casting their votes, bomb school buildings, scare away those who want to study, kidnap tour-operators who are a source of income for the deprived ones for whom no bells toll…why do they destroy infrastructure in interiors that spurs economic growth ? Why do they lobby with international bodies to scuttle development projects like Narmada Valley project? And there are leftist sponsored activists who poke their nose in every developmental activity with the sole intention to sabotage progress of the nation. The way they appear from nowhere like locusts, is truly amazing. If Marxists/Maoists /Naxalites really believe in development, how and why is that Bengal became a wretched state in 34 years of uninterrupted CPI(M) rule? Just 15 years were enough for war-ravaged Japan / Germany to rise like Phoenix from the dust while Bengal conceded them 34 years in a single go, uninterrupted. Whom would they like to blame for the ills of Bengal ? How is that they failed miserably in Nepal too?

As a matter of fact, they are anti-nationals, first rate enemies of the nation who should be dealt with, with the severity they deserve. It’s no ideology at all.

In May 1919 at Dussel dorf in Germany, Allied Forces allegedly received a copy of controversial Communist Rules For Revolution. Those ‘sacrosanct’ rules are as under –

Corrupt the young, get them away from religion, get them interested in sex. Make them superficial, destroy their ruggedness.

Get people’s minds off their government by focusing their attention on athletics, sexy books, plays and other trivialities.

Divide people into hostile groups by constantly harping on controversial matters of no importance.

Destroy people’s faith in their natural leaders by holding the latter up to contempt, ridicule and obloquy.

Always preach true democracy but seize power as fast and as ruthlessly as possible.

By encouraging Government extravagance, destroy its credit, produce fear of inflation with rising prices and general discontent.

Foment unnecessary strikes in vital industries, encourage civil disorders, foster lenient and soft attitude on part of government towards such disorders.

By specious arguments, cause breakdown of old moral virtues, honesty, sobriety, confidence, faith in the pledged world and ruggedness.

Cause registration of all firearms on some pretext with a view to confiscate them and leaving entire population helpless.

Have they not been adhering to those principles word by word, in letter and spirit till the day?

Finally, we come back to the point from where we began. By denying religion, they leave everyone in a vacuum. Devoid of spirituality, frustration, depression, violence and destruction overtake life. And that has been the state of affairs in former USSR after ‘Perestroika’ and ‘Glasnost’ were carried out by President Mikhail Gorbechev. Only if Marxists had declared, religion is like a banana-peel instead of opium, required so long as the banana is there and not required after banana is eaten…their tale of history would have been eminently different.
