Trump puts a stake through Marxism

Every now and again, a single human has an impact far beyond his lifespan.  Marx was one.  Donald Trump will be another.

We have been living in the shadow of Marx's corpse since his death almost 137 years ago.  This is despite the fact that socialist economics has been debunked, and Marxist political experiments have been an unmitigated disaster.  Yet, like a continually adapting virus, Marxist ideologues have infected every area of knowledge.  Consequently, Marx-inspired dogma informs the politics of the Left, the hermeneutics of academia, Common Core's woke "bootcamp for the global economy," rabid feminism, justification for bureaucratic intervention, revenge plots against the traditional Western canon, revisionist history, the undermining of individual freedom in favor of "victim" groups, and now the deconstruction of human nature itself.

Worse has been the recent liaison of the Left with the globalist Right, represented by the likes of George Soros, the Bush dynasty, the clepto-Clintons, RINOS, and "Manchurian candidate" Bloomberg (invested to the eyeballs in China).  As NeverTrump Bill Kristol says, "We're all Democrats now."  Marxism was an international movement from its inception.

Yet, in merely three years, Donald Trump has felled the Marxist Goliath.  While lowering taxes and pruning the overgrown administration, he has raised up the "downtrodden."  The poor are finding jobs and getting off food stamps.  Black American employment has never been so high.  Unemployment has rarely been so low.  Those companies who sold out to globalism are returning to the USA.  The economy is booming.

Donald Trump has exposed the corruption of unelected bureaucrats and depraved politicians (an inevitable outcome of socialist regimes).  He has not feathered his own nest by propping up a foundation to camouflage grand theft, and he abstains from collecting the salary he's entitled to as president — hardly the action of a dictator!  Patriotism is more important to him than siding with one class against another, as the Left does.  And he does not believe that God is the opiate of the masses, which Marx and Lenin claimed.

He sees the state as the protector of last resort for its citizens, not as the instrument of oppression, as Marx accused.  Yet, under communism, the state became the greatest source of terror to its people, from the Soviet Union to China.  And let's not forget the "socialism" in Hitler's National Socialism — and its millions of victims!  Unelected bureaucrats remain abusers of power in local, national and global arenas — under the pretext of serving the people.  What hypocrisy.  They serve themselves!

Now we understand why the Left hates Donald Trump.  He's put a stake through Marxism.  And the Left knows it's fighting for its life.  It will ultimately lose, but the battle is far from over.  The enemy congests within institutions of power like an overgrowth of candida.  No wonder the body politic is suffering chronic inflammation!

Donald Trump is the new broom of the New Conservatism.  Unlike the Left, he does not seek to remake society through an endless revolution of radical transformations.  His broom is to sweep the Republic's Augean stables, to crop the pile-up of regulations and cauterize the deformed ideologies that have mushroomed inside the morbid Marxian corpse.

A good cleaning and decontamination will unveil the solid bones of the Republic and its supreme Constitution — one of the most illustrious documents ever written.  The venerable conservative thinkers of the first half of the twentieth century, ignored by the Left, will return and give us light.  The New Conservatism is founded on the primacy of hearth and home, which secure the family as the fundamental unit of society.  Our first human bonds are those between parents and children.  The family deserves to be revered, not desecrated by feminist rants against men, LGBT lobbies, murdering the unborn, and perpetuating childish dependence through the Nanny State.

Trust must be restored.  It is the organic glue that holds a community together.  Marx destroyed trust, and the state stepped in to compel unity by the threat of force.  The Rule of Law will be restored, and all citizens should speak English and be educated to respect the American way of life and its history.  We are the taxpayers.  We have the power to do it in partnership with the president.  The Left has turned the state into a racket for extorting citizens, and it's about time we supported Donald Trump in holding its feet to the fire.  Clearly, there is an enormous amount of work to be done in dealing with corruption, the public dishonesty of the Left's MSM, and the urgent necessity to defang leftists' poisonous ideology.

Marx viewed tradition with utter contempt.  He believed that his "scientific method" had unlocked the key to the perpetual political engineering of society.  Perhaps he, and his ideological offspring, ought to have taken warning from the Father of the Scientific Method itself, René Descartes.  Descartes admonished against the "claim of any private individual to reform a state by altering everything, and by overturning it throughout" (quoted in The History of Political Philosophy, edited by Leo Strauss and Joseph Copley, pp. 712-713).

Donald Trump will be forever remembered.  He proved, in real time, that Marxism is no more than "fake news," and he is leading us into an American Renaissance.
