Mainstream media and its controllers have lost control of information in the 21st century and this survey is further evidence of it.
Millennials reportedly believe George Bush was responsible for more killings than Stalin, according to results of a poll reported by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation in its first “annual report on US attitudes towards socialism.”
“It is because of such widespread ignorance about communism that we formed the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, which is dedicated to telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth,” Lee Edwards, co-founder of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, told the Daily Signal.
But the chances are that this group will not tell the whole truth about communism and its authoritarian genocides. This would surely reveal that Western banking interests helped create and install communism in Russia in the first place.
This is amply documented in G. Edward Griffin’s book, “The Creature From Jekyll Island.” The book deals with the secret history of central banking and the intention of its elite founders to use monetary monopolies to centralize world governance.
But the book also exposes Hegelian strategies calling for the creation of enemies in order to advance the cause of internationalization. The great enemy of the West during the 20th century – and now again in the 21st – was communism.
In order to make sure that communism took root in Russia, Wall Street tycoons costumed themselves as Red Cross workers and traveled to Russia to make sure that “Red Russian” factions were adequately funded.
Additionally, there is a good deal of revisionist history regarding Karl Marx on the Internet, some of it suggesting that his history is more complex than is ordinarily portrayed.
Only 5 per cent of millennials were unfamiliar with the former US president – his decision to invade Iraq took place within recent memory – while 18 per cent were unfamiliar with Stalin.
While millennials may have a hazy view of Stalin, the murderous reality of what’s going in the Middle East is obviously clear enough to the younger generation. And let’s not restrict the wholesale slaughter just to Bush.
When one adds up casualties in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Egypt and other countries that have suffered from recent US sponsored violence, the death toll rises precipitously. It should include the continuing cancers and birth defects caused by depleted uranium weapons as well.
London’s City bankers were apparently behind the rise of communism both Russia and later in China, just as Western money power boosted World War II.
The sudden emergence of this new Foundation may educate younger people about the dangers of communism, but we wonder if it will fully explain the genesis of that murderous political system and Western involvement.
We are entering an era where the West is positioning itself once more as a bulwark of freedom against Russia, and China as well. It would be nice to think that this Foundation will offer a more expansive view of communism and its causes, but it is also likely that it is simply part of the ongoing effort to resuscitate tensions between Russia and the West.
The idea here, we are told, is that young people have not been sufficiently exposed to communism and its murders – which would put the West (and Bush) in a better light. But we’d suggest that millennials have actually absorbed a good deal of information about murderous Western activities, and this is what’s provoking such beliefs.
Conclusion: Elite memes are simply not as effective today as yesterday, and that may not be the fault of a deficient education but of more comprehensive Internet reporting. …
