Globalism and Communism

globalism and communism

Globalism and communism have a similar goal: world domination.

Modern transportation and telecommunications made the world smaller. The communication and financial exchanges between countries are unprecedented. This global exchange is the result of a natural, historical process.

The Industrial Revolution significantly increased productivity. This spurred social upheaval and profound shifts in philosophy and spirituality. As technology advanced, materialist and atheist ideas became prominent. Growing numbers of people rejected traditional morality and religion.

Communism used these global shifts to separate people from their cultures and identity. Globalism allowed communism to exploit changes to further its global agenda.

Globalism made much progress in the economic, political, and cultural spheres. The globalist idea elicits feelings of freedom from war, poverty, and discrimination. But in practice, its methods are essentially those of the communist revolution.

While globalists claim to respect national culture, globalism serves communist causes. Instead of supporting culture, globalism mirrors the Left’s political correctness and social justice.

World government is the primary goal of globalism. Once a global government is formed, communism will eliminate private property rights, nations, races, and each country’s traditional culture.

Globalism and Communism

Marx and Engels taught that capitalism’s expansion produces a vast working class in the industrialized nations. A proletarian revolution would sweep the globe, overthrow capitalism, and achieve a communist utopia.

Marx and Engels also believed that communism depends on the working class to join in a worldwide movement. This communist revolution is a global movement.

Later, Vladimir Lenin modified Marxist doctrine. He proposed that the world revolution starts in Russia. In 1919, Lenin established the Communist Internationale. The goal of the Communist Internationale was to establish the World Soviet Republic.

Joseph Stalin proposed goals for the communist global revolution in his book, Marxism and the National Question. G. Edward Griffin summarized Stalin’s points:

Confuse, disorganize, and destroy the forces of capitalism around the world.

Bring all nations together into a single world system of economy.

Force the advanced countries to pour prolonged financial aid into the underdeveloped countries.

Divide the world into regional groups as a transitional stage toward the total world government. Populations will more readily abandon their national loyalties to a vague regional loyalty than they will for a world authority. Later, the regionals can be brought all the way into a single world dictatorship of the proletariat. (G. Edward Griffin, Fearful Master: A Second Look at the United Nations (Appleton, WI: Western Islands, 1964)

William Z. Foster, the former national chairman of the Communist Party USA, wrote: “A Communist world will be a unified, organized world. The economic system will be one great organization, based upon planning now dawning in the USSR. The American Soviet government will be an important section in this world government.” [4]

Global Domination

Clearly, communism is not satisfied with dominating a few countries. Communism’s goal is global domination.

Fortunately, the proletarian world revolution failed to take place. With the collapse of Soviet and Eastern European communism, the free world triumphed over communism. Communism, however, infiltrated many social movements in the West.

After World War II, left-wing forces in European countries grew. Democratic socialism spread across Europe, enticing the populace with generous welfare programs. These programs, however, came at the cost of high taxation and increased state ownership.

In the United States, globalization devastated industry and the middle class. Manufacturing moved out of the country, throwing middle-class workers out of work. The gap between rich and poor widened, shifting the political spectrum to the far Left.

After the Cold War, communist ideas infiltrated the global economic market. The shift to a global market promised to increase demand, leading to more work. The price for this was steep: eliminate the national economy and sovereignty. In the last few decades, Western financial powers shifted wealth to build up mainland China’s economy. China used these investments to prop up its regime while binding foreign businesses and leaders to its corrupt system.

Conclusion

As the head of communism today, China is building an economic superpower. At the same time, they are fortifying left-wing and communist parties worldwide. Their totalitarian system usurps the rules of regular trade. They intend to use the enrichment they get from democratic free markets to subvert them from within.

China’s economic strength also spurred its political and military ambitions. It attempts to export the communist model throughout the world. Looking at China’s global strategy, today’s world has many of the conditions necessary for the communist revolution.
