The ultimate goal of communism is to destroy the human race, and the evil specter of communism is ruling our world today. Humanity’s only hope is to purge itself of the venom of communism; to escape this catastrophe, the people of the world need to return to tradition and to improve morality.
This is the message of a march in Washington held on June 20 by close to 5,000 practitioners of Falun Gong, distilled from lessons they have learned from facing 19 years of brutal persecution by a communist regime.
In 1999, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) set out to eradicate Falun Gong, believing the traditional spiritual practice’s principles of truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance were antithetical to the atheistic rule of the communist regime. Falun Gong practitioners have been subjected to unlawful arrests and imprisonment, torture, brainwashing, and forced labor. They also have been used as living sources for forced organ transplants.
The estimated 100 million Falun Gong practitioners in China bore the brunt of this persecution, while practitioners abroad have exposed the crimes of the CCP while under constant pressure from the regime’s arms of overseas influence in politics, business, news media, and special interest groups.
Through their hardships and triumphs, practitioners of Falun Gong have learned much about the goals of not just the CCP, but of communism overall. They presented these goals on banners carried by those in the parade.
Communism doesn’t aim to create a utopia, as is commonly believed. Its true goals are the destruction of morality and religion, and the inciting of struggle and hatred among the people of the world.
This ties to the very heart of the communist system.
For a lot of people, if they’re willing to overlook the estimated 100 million deaths communism caused over the last century, then they may think of equality, sharing, fighting against “oppression,” and things of that sort. These are the talking points of communism—the surface ideas it shows to people when it wants to rally them toward its goals of destroying morality, tradition, and religion.
Without morality, humankind is stripped of the restraint necessary to maintain social harmony. Communism is able to step into the breach and provide social control by dominating even the most minute corners of our lives. Without tradition, people forget their heritage, their culture, and the ways of life that make them human. And without religion, people lose the path through which they could temper their inner character and save themselves from spiritual destruction.
Communism has never tried hiding these goals. We can see it in the writings of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. “The Communist Manifesto” states, “Communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality.” We can also see that in every country communism penetrates, it starts social movements that carry out this destruction.
Many people are unwittingly swept up in these movements and are often led to believe they are fighting for a just cause. Communism forms its narratives through false framing, half-truths, and manipulated data. The often aggressive ignorance of its more devout followers provides fertile ground for propagating these false stories.
Many people never realize that the issues these social movements promote are never the goal of communism. Again, the goal is the destruction of humanity through the elimination of morality, tradition, and religion. The issues communist movements push are merely steps to achieve this destruction. After socialist and communist movements succeed at pushing an agenda that goes against the values of a society, they quickly move to another agenda that goes even further against social norms.
Communist movements manufacture their issues using a simple formula, laid out under the communist theory of dialectical materialism: First, they identify an incumbent moral or cultural value. Then they invert that value and use the inversion to form a social issue to attack and wear down the incumbent value.
The destruction of morals and traditions was related to Marx’s theory on “progress,” which, according to the concept of the course of empires, was about leading the world toward the state of moral, cultural, and social destruction.
Marx promoted his theory of the five stages of civilization to claim that the development of society was leading toward his theories of communism. The first stage, he believed, was primitive communism, then the agrarian society, followed by capitalism, then socialism, then communism.
Of course, Marx was merely rebranding existing ideas on the stages of civilization. If we were to understand this from the stages of empires, or Thomas Cole’s depiction of the “Course of Empires,” formed around the same time as Marx’s theories, primitive communism was the primitive society where nothing had yet been built, and the agrarian society was one of farming and the simple life. Capitalism was the “consummate empire,” socialism was the stage of “destruction,” and communism was the stage of “desolation,” where all had been destroyed.
From this, we can understand that the height of an empire is the consummate empire, which Marx branded as “capitalism.” The state of destruction was what Marx called “socialism” and what Lenin called “state capitalism.” Socialism was the stage at which the state had seized control of all means of production and achieved the dictatorship that could be used to drive forward the final goal of communism, which was the state of “desolation,” in which everything has been destroyed.
The end goal of communism is the annihilation of all morals and values, all cultures, all hierarchy outside its control, and any kind of system that can have power over a person’s psyche or moral restraint.
According to the principles of creation and destruction in the universe, in the four seasons, and in human empires, communism is trying to accelerate the “progress” toward humanity’s destruction. It wants to drive people faster toward this destruction by speeding up the process of moral decline; and in the issues promoted by communist movements, we can see them actively doing this in every part of the world.
To escape from this path of destruction created by communism, people need to restore what communism is trying to destroy—by returning to tradition and morality.
