“Stealth Socialism”

Conservative Byte posted an article entitled “Dem Rep Praises Rise of ‘Stealth Socialism’ In America”.  According to that article,

“In a recent interview with Salon, outspoken progressive Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) hailed the rise of what he called “stealth socialism” through America’s recent monetary policy decisions.”

What does Congressman Grayson mean by “monetary policy decisions”?

He means “central planning” by the Federal Reserve System.

“Central planning” is a term that was popularized by the former Soviet Union—until it collapsed under the weight of “central planning” in A.D. 1991, ceased to exist, and plunged the people formerly ruled by “central planning” into a decade of chaos, poverty and violence.

“Asked by interviewer David Dayen whether the financial system has become “safer” in the years since the financial collapse and subsequent government interventions like 2010′s Dodd-Frank bill, Grayson praised the Federal Reserve for its “unconventional” policies that have “put us back on a low-level track toward growth.”

From A.D. 1922 forward, Russian Communists routinely praised the brilliant and sometimes “unconventional” policies augmented by Soviet “central planning”. That praise ended in A.D. 1991, when the weight and sheer idiocy of “central planning” caused the Soviet Union to collapse, disintegrate, cease to exist and plunge the people formerly ruled by Soviet “central planning” into a decade of abject poverty, social chaos and violence.

“Asked about the Fed’s expanding balance sheet, the Florida Democrat said: ‘We’ve had a government takeover of the bond market.

The bond market has been taken over by the very same government that issues those bonds.  Thinks about that.

With that takeover, the free market has been removed and replaced by central planning.

The free market’s former assessment of the value of government bonds has been replaced by the government’s and Federal Reserve’s control of the apparent value of those bonds.  This takeover and assessment has been achieved by means of the Federal Reserve purchasing 80% or more of recent government bonds and paying full price to do so.  Government sets the price.  The Federal Reserve pays it.  The annoying forces of the free market are eliminated and replaced by the inestimable wisdom of government central planning.

Our brilliant and heroic central planners need not listen to the voices of private investors who might ignorantly refuse to buy US Bonds except at much lower prices.   The government now controls the price without free market meddling and interference.


Stealth socialism’s been created. Government simply ends up owning more and more and more.”


It follows that as government owns more and more, you folks in the private sector will own less and less and less.

As government owns more, it will control more.

Eventually, our heroic central planners will control every bit of life and choice until this nation runs like a super-efficient, well-oiled machine—complete with goose-stepping, concentration camps for dissidents and the ultimate collapse into rubble that follows every foray into central planning.

Thanks to government’s “stealth socialism,” you’re becoming increasingly impoverished in terms of both your tangible wealth and your personal liberties.   If “stealth socialism” is allowed to continue, you’ll soon own nothing and be totally subject to the government’s will.

If you allow “central planning” and “stealth socialism” to continue, you will soon become a slave.

    so is/are Americans so foolish that they cannot remember the resulting ten years of s of central planning for the economy in Russia? Because we forgot what happened in Russia are we doomed to suffer the same resulting ten years of violence and poverty?

      I can’t see why not. The former Soviet Union’s fate is not necessarily our own. But if we do the same as they did, there’s a good chance that we’ll get what they got.

    Again,a lot of talk about nothing.
    Not to many people do not understand the concept of Socialism.
    Socialism means to share the land,its resources and the opportunities.
    Socialism it is associated with a republic form of government.
    It acts for the public interest.Its more like a tribal society.It is a lot of common ownership.
    The rights of the individual man/woman are valued as much as they serve the community.
    Remember the old phrase: ” Ask not what your country can do for you,ask what you can do for your country.”
    In ancient societies was the same,individuals had no rights,only duties to the community.
    The community as a whole used to take care of the individuals.
    Like I like a tribal community,like a colony of bees.
    There is private property in a socialistic republic.
    Example: your living body ,your name and the fruits of your own labor
    How many people today in America can claim those private rights.
    When your name is a number,you have no rights.
    You are a slave.
    Your GOD is your master.

    The collapse of the Soviet Union was the intent of their central planning. The purpose of the collapse was the dismemberment and privatization of Russian into the hands of the mafia who took it over decades earlier. Something similar is in the works for this country also, unless We the People prevent it.

    As obvious as the day is long, proof that central planning does not, by itself, collapse economies is China since the 1980s. This economy is both very centrally planned and very successful.

      Their central planning has been successful because America moved its manufacturing facilities to China and purchased enormous quantities of Chinese products. Without that American subsidy, China’s “central planning” might’ve collapsed must like the Soviet Union’s. When the American subsidy dies, then we’ll find out how strong China’s central planning really is.

        Through central planning, China was able to take advantage of the market opportunity presented by American businesses deciding to outsource. This competitive ability on the part of China has gained them huge economic prosperity in less than 30 years. American businesses had many options for where to outsource, yet they concentrated on China because that country’s centrally plan economy had the right stuff to handle the demand.

        This does not fit the definition of a “subsidy”.

    The Zionist jews ravaged the American economy from the start.They brought inflation and banking monopolies from the early 19th century.
    They did the same in SOVIET UNION.
    Today Russia is on its way to recovery.
    Central planning is a good scientific form of economics.
    Without discipline you have anarchy.
    Remember Germany from 1933 to 1940.They got out of Great Depression while America never did.
    Does China have a debt?
    Americans still believe in biblical miracles.
    Free market economics is a sham.It is a bonanza for the wandering jew to act as a profiteer.
    Wake up to reality.
    Your GOD is your master.
    I trust no GOD.

    I don’t draw a distinction between Collectivism (Tribalism, Socialism, Communism) and Feudalism in their shared essential structure.

    While the nomenclature differs as to social hierarchy: State-Realm, Chairman-Monarch, Commissariat-Nobility, Bourgeoisie-Merchant, Proletariat-Serf, it only serves to obscure the concentration of all Title to tangible and intangible goods under the ‘King’, who distributes their use according to degrees and duration of fealty to the ‘Crown’.

    It was no coincidence that ‘Communism’ was concocted within a lifetime (50 years) following the American Revolution, which had effected the polar opposite of Feudal Social Order, rather instituting Private Property and Individual Determinism to their maximum extent beyond Feudalism’s ‘accommodation’ to The Enlightenment Movement in ‘Mercantilism’, which I contend is now reverted back to in our present global Social Order.

    here we go round the mulberry bush…

    eventually the breadcrumb trail might be revisited…

    Marxism, “Socialism”, communism….ooze from the Talmud.

    stupidity {moral/spiritual STUPOR} is a condition of the “Israelite” nations
    [1st world nations] as a consequence for violating the FIRST COMMANDMENT.

    maybe the LANGUAGE can become pure….

    define : Authority, Government, Nation…..
