State control and 'Community' becoming the social-political norm.

There is no other way to explain the rise of Hillary Clinton.

by StFerdIII

How else to explain the rise of a Hillary Clinton except by the ethos of the times which rewards 'statism' and rejects everything else ? A radical feminist-Marxist from Wellesley College, who has written screeds condemning America; Whites; Men; US culture; and the American propensity to fight wars deemed necessary, is now running the state leviathan called US foreign policy. Following truly accomplished Americans such as J.C. Calhoun, Daniel Webster, Henry Clay, and even realists like Muskie or Haig, we now have a far left-wing lawyer as Secretary of State, highlighting the explosive shift in American culture and attitudes towards what should be called 'statist' philosophy. It is truly hard to believe.

Hillary Clinton has made a career out of Marxist ideas. By 1968 at the age of 21 Clinton was a college attending convert to extreme Marxism. Her ideas have not changed much over 40 years. In 1968 she was penning adolescent gibberish about state power being necessary to redefine America from the highest levels, down to the family. In 1996 she published her inane 'It takes a village' work, which repeated the same tired, empty and immoral Marxist themes of governmental overlordship in all facets of societal life – including the eccentricity that state agents should raise children and not families. Clinton's arrogant contempt for men, the family unit, or the individual and freedom of choice and of self-interest is astounding in its immutability.

“In 1969 she wrote her 92-page senior thesis on the theories of radical Chicago organizer Saul Alinsky, author of Rules for Radicals (1971) and Reveille for Radicals (1947). A great admirer of Alinsky's ruthless activist tactics, Hillary personally interviewed the famed author for her project. She concluded her thesis by stating: "Alinsky is regarded by many as the proponent of a dangerous socio/political philosophy. As such, he has been feared -- just as Eugene Debs [the five-time Socialist Party candidate for U.S. President] or Walt Whitman or Martin Luther King has been feared, because each embraced the most radical of political faiths -- democracy."

Hillary would maintain her allegiance to Alinsky's teachings throughout her adult life. 

According to a March 2007 Washington Post report, "As first lady, Clinton occasionally lent her name to projects endorsed by the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), the Alinsky group that had offered her a job in 1968. She raised money and attended two events organized by the Washington Interfaith Network, an IAF affiliates.

Clinton's socialist odyssey continued at Yale where she became involved with the 'Frankfurt' school, the group which of course developed what is now called 'post-modern' theory - which is the bedrock of cultural Marxism. The Frankfurt school is basically a sect which sought out the destruction of Western civilization by applying Marxian 'principles' and in particular ideas at subverting and than controlling Western education, the media and culture. It was also at Yale law school where Clinton made radical left wing contacts which would provide her a job at what can only be described as a Communist law firm in Berkeley California working on the Nixon impeachment during Watergate. Her big breakthrough came in 1978 when Jimmy Carter appointed her as a Board Member of LSC a government run agency whose mandate was to use public funds to expand the welfare state.  

“During Hillary Clinton's years on the LSC board, the Corporation also worked to defeat a California referendum that would have cut state income taxes in half; called for the U.S. government to give two-thirds of the state of Maine to American Indians; paid Marxist orators and folk singers in a campaign against the Louisiana Wildlife Commission; joined a Michigan campaign to recognize "Black English" as an official language; and sought to force the New York City Transit Authority to hire former heroin addicts so as to avoid "discriminat[ing]" against "minorities" who were "handicapped.”

Worthy initiatives all – at least for the hard of thinking.

Clinton the ambitious Marxist, married Bill in 1975, and the rest as they say became history. Her only private sector job in a 'normal' company was as a lawyer at the Rose Law firm in Little Rock whilst husband Bill ran the rather small state of Arkansas. No significant legal actions, or deeds of note are known of Clinton's career at this firm – except perhaps illegal land speculations and other quasi-criminal deeds which became political fodder during the 1990s for her many enemies.

One can say this about Clinton – not only is she a committed left-wing zealot, she is a violently committed left-wing zealot. In another piece on Clinton I wrote this to describe the aspects of fascist-communalist violence:

“Fascism is the ultimate expression of community feeling and communal glory in the pursuit of the pagan, the irrational, the anti-modern, the illiberal, and so the fascist hopes - the utopian. It is an anti-civilizational cult. This is why fascists and communists have always competed in the same political space and have little time not only for each other, but for any else who dares to think or question.”

Marxists – both economic and cultural – are prey to fascistic ideals and methods. Ergo Clinton as a defender of unfettered state power is little more than an agitator for state controlled fascism. 

In Jonah Goldberg's recent book 'Liberal Fascism' he goes after, quite rightly, amongst other targets, Hillary Clinton's long history of radical socialist thinking and Marxist preferences. It is a story that the media has never bothered to tell. After all, according to the geniuses of the mainstream media, fascism MUST be conservatism gone wild, or at the very least a form of extremist militarism. This is of course is just ignorance. Fascism has nothing in common with a robust military, nor with ideas of small government, low taxation and freedom of speech and individual freedoms.

Goldberg outlines Hillary Clinton's 'Progressive Liberalism' and her obsession – there is no other word for it – of establishing a total mommy state fascism. Her book 'It takes a Village' is replete with fascistic overtones. State power will be used to nurture and develop children in a certain way. All issues including divorce, early marriage, child rearing, getting old, work place environments, public spaces, even reading material, are 'health issues', to be administered by the state. Hillary is particularly focused on children and demands that house inspectors be hired to indoctrinate children and mothers, on the proper way to do things, from the moment the baby is born. These inspectors would have the power of the state to not only care for the child but to begin its state sanctioned education. In other words, the family unit, is to be targeted for state interference if not destruction.

In Hillary's world, much as what occurred with Nazis and Mussolini's cult, the state would be the arbiter of the child's future. The parents and child would be separated mentally and after some time physically so that they can be rebranded and rebuilt into purposeful and useful citizens. Hillary seems obsessed by this. She has written papers, given speeches and tried to implement policies which make this clear. Clinton wants the state to own the child's development. It is no accident that she adores socialised health care. Tending to patients via state power is only one part of her socialised health vision. Clinton wants the state to be involved in any 'health' issue private or public. This includes her view that children, as a group, are marginalised, disenfranchised, at risk, and ergo a health issue. 

Only the state can solve all these 'health' issues according to Hillarious.

Her comments on children read like something a kind fascist grandmother would write:

-"a consensus of values and a common vision of what we can do today, individually and collectively, to build strong families and communities." [left wing values of course and collective is the key word]

-"Videos with scenes of commonsense baby care--how to burp an infant, what to do when soap gets in his eyes, how to make a baby with an earache comfortable--could be running continuously in doctors' offices, clinics, hospitals, motor vehicle offices, or any other place where people gather and have to wait." [makes Orwell look kind]

-"There is no such thing as other people's children." [ergo the family does not exist]

-“Most parents really want to know what to do, but there’s not a lot of help out there, is there? We need to give more support to families so that they can be the best possible teachers and parents.” [ergo we need more government help and programs and of course tax money].

For 40 years Clinton's soporific rants against the family and on the need for the state to do more, have been consistent. She was taught by a radical preacher in her home town in Illinois that communalism was gospel; she supported radical groups like the fascist Black Panthers at University; she became best friends with various statist-socialist writers, thinkers and policy wonks from Robert Reich to Ira Magaziner; and she covets large statist projects from more welfare to state managed medicine. 

Hillary is in short, a very dangerous cultural, economic and political Marxist.

Her differences with most of the Socialist-Democratic party, including that of the empty-suit Obama Kid Dynomite! are slight. For these 'progressives' the state means love, community, purpose and a desire as Clinton said in a recent speech 'to fill oneself up' with meaning. Ah yes the politics of meaning. In Hillarious' view of life it is the community of the state which gives meaning, or in Hitler's words, the 'volksgemeinschaft' – the contract of subordinating the individual to the state.

The US will never be a 'right wing' militarist society with boots stomping on faces as predicted by Orwell. With ridiculous people like Clinton and Hussein Obama around, it will evolve into what Jonah Goldberg calls a 'liberal fascism', replete with smiling faces, warm blankets and a baby bottle for each little citizen-slave.
