Why is the “left” left out of the truth tellers’ websites?
October 12, 2022
I have observed something fascinating over and over again when I am taken to websites in my search for truth that provide convincing details about the crimes taking place around the world, and specifically in the United States. The details that these sites provide are more accurate than those found on the liberal, or progressive, sites, even on those of the radical left.
Overall the analysis that these sites present is sound. But, when it comes to the traditional anti-imperialist, anti-colonialist, and anti-fascist traditions, we are informed up front that Marxism is dangerous and bankrupt, that socialism is an unmitigated failure, that Lenin was a paid agent of the Zionist bankers, and that Mao Zedong killed millions to satisfy his perverse need for domination.
The assumption in most cases is that anything from the “communist” tradition, from the socialists, is flawed and dangerous.
But, I ask, even if Lenin and Marx got so much wrong, can’t we still learn from them about how to organize people, how to plan a revolution? That would be, after all, the most scientific response, no? No one gets it all wrong and we should draw on all sources for ideas and inspirations as we go forward to create a great synthesis appropriate to this moment.
But that possibility is excluded from almost all of the conspiracy websites that give such valuable content.
At this point, I smell a rat!
These conspiracy sites are telling us what is wrong, but attributing it to ancient evils festering in the Vatican and smoldering among the Free Masons, to the conspiracies of the Zionist bankers and the evil rites of the devil worshippers.
The conclusion seems to be that there is nothing one can do but pray to Jesus for salvation. Nowhere do these sites help you to link up with others, or put together a platform to organize you into a unit capable of giving and carrying out orders. There is no command system offered and no instructions for how you can build one yourself.
The more I see of these conspiracy websites, the more convinced I am that they want you to dismiss Lenin, Mao and others from the start as “nonstarters” and that they want to make sure that you never, never, never, start reading their books, or figuring out how class, capital and ideology are linked, or learning how to motivate, to organize. and to lead working people in a mass struggle.
No, the protectors, perhaps the funders, maybe even the administrators, of so many of these oracles of truth seem to be under strict orders to make sure that no one figures out how to actually organize and carry out a revolution.
