Critical Socialist Theory

Yes, I know, the title is ambiguous. So is Critical Race Theory. But both titles have a common denominator: both require a measure of explanation, which is better implied rather than explicit.

To begin with, socialists are big on indoctrination. If they could indoctrinate babies in the womb, they would. The earlier the indoctrination of children, the better. If it were possible to indoctrinate babies beginning at the second trimester, socialists would do that. For them, voting is not just a political function, it’s a solemn mission.  In a communist nation, you are born and die a communist. Voting, if any, is a charade. 

Socialists justify socialist indoctrination by correctly noting that children subliminally acquire social characteristics from those around them. For example, children gather that boys and girls differ in terms of dress, hair accessories, gifts (e.g., guns or dolls), and even different vocal tones and facial expressions directed at either a boy or a girl. So, why not inculcate children with attitudes and mores that resonate with socialist tenets? For example, why not force a child to share a gift specifically meant for him alone? The lessons for the virtues and drawbacks of altruism can wait for a time when it is not traumatic for the recipient of the gift to hand it over to someone else…even for a moment. 

In the adult world, socialists are big on avarice. They demand that the wealthy must pay their fair share of taxes. Exactly how is a ‘fair share’ determined? The phrase, ‘Robber Barons’ is still alive and well, one way or another.  Is that fair?  That expression is particularly ludicrous when it is articulated by mega film stars, professional sport celebrities, and major political officials. 

Critical judgments based on ‘groupthink’ is anathema to intelligent judgment. Ironically, although the Internet and other information sources are at the pinnacle of human communications, the North Star of Truth still resides in individual judgment. That has been and will always be so with or without artificial intelligence.
