The Americanism versus global communism debate is badly needed. Because of the massive propaganda campaign by the communists in America, intelligent political debates are impossible.
If an Americanism versus Communism debate centered around our embedded Bill of Rights, Communism immediately. Of course, the Communist-side would point to the unequal distribution of wealth in Americanism.
But a good pro-American debater can quickly point out the weakness in their argument. If the embedded communists would stop interfering with capitalism, the global, the socialistic monopolies causing the wealth inequalities would quickly be broken up by law. Besides, at least Americanism produces wealth, not like the human misery caused by Communism.
A misconception is that modern Communism includes some degree of personal freedom. It does not!
Americanism allows individuals to seek a better life based on their own initiatives. Importantly, it allows them to own property and start their own businesses.
Global Communism – means the (coming) global governance comes before the individual. Individuals are allowed to own property or own a business with the approval of an elite party. There is only one supreme party. There are elections, but in the end, the elite party decides.
Americanism versus Global Communism Debate Notes:
- Since all communistic movements nowadays are global, I’ve added the word to the label “global communism.”
- Nordic countries are not examples of communistic countries, as they offer full property rights, multiple parties, and entrepreneurship with only business licenses. They have mixed socialist and capitalist economic systems.
- Marxism or Maoism is the central political and economic rules for global communism. “a theory in which class struggle is a central element in the analysis of social change in Western societies. And an economic system based on the private ownership of the means of production and distribution of goods, characterized by a free competitive market and motivation by profit.” – Encarta
- “Democratic Socialism” is not a workable system for global communism, as it makes no sense. Anyway, it sounds more like our current American system of mixed capitalism and socialism, which is not working.
- The ideology of Americanism is contained in its Constitution and within the Bill of Rights.
The Americanism versus Global Communism Debate
The track record of communism shows us just the opposite. People flock to American for freedom. Already under Biden and his communistic administration, Americans are leaving.
The underlying economic system of Americanism is capitalism. With a heavy dose of socialism, a mixed economy for sure. But even with the drag of limited socialism, it will always generate more wealth than communism. Corporate fascism (world communism) offers only a reduction of wealth for individuals and misery.
Many American Marxist professors and university students try to defend Socialism by calling it this ununderstandable label. There is no such thing as Democratic Socialism!
The economies of Americanism are a mixture of both capitalism and socialism. The cost of socialism is a matter of budgets and the will of the people.
The Main Issues Exposed By the Debate
Global communism is not a political and economic system! It’s only a system of control and power for elites. That’s what I got out of this debate with myself.
It cannot support itself without the wealth generation of capitalism to pay for its programs. If it even tries, the result is human misery.
Some say, “Well, look at China!”
China needed to steal our technology and negotiate a loop-side trade arrangement with the US to survive. So, not only does global communism lose the debate, it had nothing to debate with.
Communism is not a real alternative to Americanism. They are as different as night and day.
Communism is about taking your freedom. Americanism is about freeing the human spirit.
My debate with myself brings up the question, “where would the new ideas for globalization come from without capitalistic entrepreneurs?”
While true, there were “state-sponsor entrepreneurs” from China and other countries who copied those in America (i.e., Jeff Bezos, Amazon), they do not have the “inventive minds” driven by the greed of capitalism.
A rather simple comparison, the case for Americanism centers on the rights of individuals, while global communism instead makes the state supreme. In other words, do we rule ourselves? Or, do we give power to an all-powerful state, as in China?
When talking with those who escaped from communists countries to immigrate to the US, they recognize our recent political events as the same political events they saw in their home country. And, are “scare” Americanism may turn into global communism.
