It’s All Communism (So Stop Pretending It’s Not, And Other Things Too Fucking Obvious to Point Out)

I’m guessing most people who will read this are already aware of the communist schoolteacher preaching communist revolution in a public (government) school in the equally communist State of Commiefornia.  This individual was evidently dismissed after much righteous outrage from parents and others who histrionically objected at a local school board meeting held to address the issue. Good for them.

Numerous videos reporting on and documenting this affair hit the Internet before, during, and after, in far too great a number to link to here.  Noticing in turn, as any mindful libertarian would, a glaring disconnect between the offered narratives and physical reality, I commented on several of these videos at YouTube, Rumble, and a couple of other spots.  Mostly I just copied and pasted my relatively succinct response to a multiplicity of locales, and I didn’t preserve the exact wording, but it went something like this:

I find it nothing short of amazing that all of this indignation has been (most correctly, in my view) been levelled at this Marxist “teacher” – yet no one is pointing out the most abundantly obvious underlying fact here:  That the “public” (government) tax-financed school system itself is a 100% Marxist construct.

Perhaps if you struck at the root, instead of just the branches, some good and effectual things might just start to happen.

Consider, if you will, that I received not one response to that missive – although I posted it in probably 20 or 25 completely separate locations.  I’m not even sure if any of them remain there, or if they were all censored and removed.  Either way, the message should be very clear:  We don’t want to actually fix or correct anything. We just want to make it look like we do.

What other rational conclusion is there to draw?  Another recent piece of mine exhibits precisely the same kind of gutless hypocrisy amongst the conservative, constitutionalist, minarchist crowd:  Don’t confuse me with facts, or force me to confront tipping over long-established apple carts. Leave me alone, and let me remain half-assed.

What kind of people do you think a fundamentally Marxist system attracts? Free-marketeers? It might help if you start being one first.

It’s not just communist teachers.  It’s a communist system.  Not just “public” schools, but “public” everything. Government itself is Marxist.  It relies on taxes and monopolization, not markets and competition. I shouldn’t even have to point this out.  No one should – not to fellow adults, at any rate.

It’s all communism, stupid.  Stop pretending it’s not. You might just get somewhere.
