Henry Sy, Bloody Demolition, and Lying Leftist Hippies!

April 23, 2012

I’m going to say it again… The only thing the leftists or communists are good at is lying or making rabble-rousing propaganda. The photo above proves my point.

So, what the heck is wrong with that photo?

One of my Facebook friends posted that photo, which visibly shows the logo of SM, the biggest mall-chain in the Philippines owned by the Sy family. What it perspicuously tells is that SM or the Henry Sy family is involved in the bloody demolition process in Sucat, Parañaque City, which led to the killing of a lone resident of the sprawling 9.7-hectare property occupied by about 25,000 poor families.

This visibly shows one thing: That the leftists will stop at nothing to make public opinion subservient to their socialist ends. They will stop at nothing to paint SM as one bleak example of what they call ‘corporate greed.’ They will stop at nothing to prove their point that ‘corporate greed’ or ‘capitalism’ is what’s destroying our environment. But is there capitalism in the Philippines in the first place? There’s NONE. The country’s economy is heavily saddled with protectionism and regulations. In fact, Henry Sy and other tycoons directly or indirectly benefit from our protectionism, which is being supported by the mindless, clueless leftists. Isn’t so ironic that the country’s protectionism, which is being supported and campaigned by the leftists, actually benefits the oligarchs and many politically connected businessmen that the leftists passionately detest?

This propaganda is entirely connected with Henry Sy’s massacre of nearly 200 trees on his own land property in Baguio City. This is also heavily related to the shameless public protests conducted by young communists members of Akbayan and Kabataan groups in SM malls.

Yes, these Kabataan and Akbayan leftist hippies are so young yet so CORRUPT! They’re not just ideologically corrupt and dishonest; they’re also a bunch of mindless fools who simply took Karl Marx’s and Friedrich Engels’ leftist evangelism on FAITH.

The message of that propaganda photo is very clear: it blames SM as the culprit or the murderer. But is it?

Here’s a report from the PDI:

Militant groups immediately criticized the police and the Parañaque government for the violent demolition as they pointed to Henry Sy Jr., chair of mall operator SM Prime Holdings, Inc., as being behind the move.

“Henry Sy and his cabals in his big corporate mafia are not only responsible for environmental degradation in Baguio but also for the rights violations which occurred today (Monday) during the demolition in Parañaque and the utter greed that comes with their forced eviction of residents who have legitimate claim to their homes,” rights group Karapatan said.

According to Karapatan, an ultra-communist group, Henry Sy and his cabals are the culprit– that they are murderers. It is their “utter greed” that pushed them to do such a crime. But those people were squatting a property, which they don’t own or rent. As Parañaque Mayor Florencio Bernabe Jr. said, the resisting residents were being influenced by “professional squatters” who were going around, telling the other dwellers that they would be displaced by the government project. The property in question is owned by the government, NOT by SM or Henry Sy.

Here’s another report from GMA News:

In response to reports and tweets and posts on Facebook linking mall chain SM to the demolition, SM Development Corporation issued a statement denying ownership of Silverio Compound, of any plans of developing the area into a condominium project, or of any involvement in the violent dispersal.

“SMDC was only made aware of what is happening in the Silverio Compound through the news that it received from media and social network sites. We are also not aware of the reason why our company’s good name is being dragged into this unfortunate incident,” the statement read.

SM is currently receiving a lot of flak from environmentalists for its plan to uproot 182 trees in connection with its development plans for SM City Baguio.

SM is currently receiving a lot of flak from environmentalists for its plan to uproot 182 trees in connection with its development plans for SM City Baguio.

As expected SM Prime denied this leftist propaganda. It says in a statement: “SM group denies it owns or is acquiring the Silverio Compound, situated on Sucat Road in Parañaque, and is in no way involved in the demolition of informal settlers in the area.”

The following is SMDC’s official statement regarding the bloody Silverio Compound demolition issue:

We would like to make it of record that:

1. SMDC is not the owner of the Silverio Compound;
2. SMDC is not in any way involved in the demolition of existing structures in the Silverio Compound or in the dispersal of the protesters.
In fact, SMDC was only made aware of what is happening in the Silverio Compound through the news that it received from media.

We reiterate the fact that we do not own any part of the Silverio Compound and we’re not part of any plans to develop it.

The information regarding SMDC on the document in question is false.

So who’s lying now? Who’s making an utterly dishonest, ridiculous, rabble-rousing propaganda? It’s the shameless leftists again, of course!

Don’t you see the whole picture here? Instead of blaming the government, which owns the property, they blamed Henry Sy and his corporate greed.

This is a good lesson to Henry Sy and others who are naively pandering to the leftist-environmentalists’ or eco-Nazis’ extremist agenda and propaganda.

This is what Henry Sy and other businessmen should do:

  1. Stop supporting all environmentalist and eco-Nazi agenda and propaganda!
  2. Stop celebrating the eco-Nazi Earth Hour!
  3. Stop supporting the eco-Nazi Earth Day!
  4. Do not feel guilty about your success if you honestly earned it!
  5. Don’t let the environmentalists and leftists tell you what to do!
  6. Fight them if you can!
  7. Stop hiring people who preach socialism or anything against business and the free market system!
  8. Spread and support the right idea! Support capitalism!
  9. Stop supporting protectionism and regulations! They will destroy you in the long run!
  10. Stop supporting your OWN DESTROYERS!

    Some people are way too exxage. Why put all the blame on SM. Just because the Silverio Demolition coincides with the SM Baguio expansion doesn’t necessarily mean that SM is also the one behind this demolition! Come on, wala na ba sila ibang makita na sisisihin? Adding to the statements above by SM, here’s what I saw sa Twitter na link, SMDC’s official statement about the demolition, on their site–http://smresidences.com/smresidences/?p=1253&type=2&sec=97&aid=11963. Let’s all leave SM alone please… they have another issue up north tapos biglang idadamay sa panibagong issue na to. Kakasawa na…

      Thanks for the link. Buti nga hindi na masyado kinakagat ng media ngayon yang issue na yan. kasi nakuryente sila…i mean report agad na SM daw ang may ari ng silverio compound yun pala hindi naman, ayun, nanahimik ang media, wired news lang pala. Nakaka sad yang nangyari sa demolition na yan, kasi in the first place hindi naman dapat umabot sa sakitan tapos may namatay pa. In the end, yung mga informal settlers din ang talo, nasaktan na sila, they are arrested pa, then papaalisin din naman sila. Everytime na lang ba na may irerelocate eh may gulong ganyan na mangyayari? =/

    The writer of that article needs to take a few lessons in history. He/she has difficulty distinguishing the difference between right-wing fascism and left wing socialism. Particularly European history about the atrocities the right wing fascist Nazis committed in the name of nationalistic and corporate greed. The writer needs to stop blaming public opinion for the ills of corporate greed.
    Greed and corruption are endemic in the fascist right wing business world in the Philippines. Everybody knows that. Big corporate businesses openly engaging in rampant employee and consumer abuse. Not to mention environmental abuse, and the environmental rape of the countryside to build sprawling concrete housing estates and boring generic resorts where ordinary local Filipinos are bought for a pittance and then denied access.
    Of course it’s so easy for naive right wing business clowns to attempt to undermine public grievances as being ‘leftist’.
    The truth is obvious. when 80% of the Filipinos live in abject poverty and the other 20% privileged classes cocking their noses at them and blaming ‘lefties.

      bengtista,

      It seems that it’s you who should take a comprehensive lesson on world history.

      You said: ” He/she has difficulty distinguishing the difference between right-wing fascism and left wing socialism. Particularly European history about the atrocities the right wing fascist Nazis committed in the name of nationalistic and corporate greed. The writer needs to stop blaming public opinion for the ills of corporate greed.”

      That’s actually one of the greatest myths and lies of our time. There is no such thing as a “right-wing fascism”. That’s actually the result of your utter inability to understand the ideological history of fascism and Nazism. To claim that the Nazis were committed ” committed in the name of nationalistic and corporate greed” is a BIG display of ignorance. For your information, the Nazi ideology was inspired by Karl Marx and socialism. That’s why it was called the National Socialist Party. Do you even know that? The fascists and the Nazis in Europe were against CAPITALISM and Individualism. In practice and in theory, Nazism and Fascism are both a totalitarian leftist systems that deny individual rights and freedom. Socialism and Nazism only differ in terms of degree of limitation/infringement of property and individual rights.

      I tackled this particular issue in two previous blogs…

      Here: The Insane Logic of Stupid Socialists

      Let us define our terms. Fascism is defined as a “radical and authoritarian national political ideology,” while communism is defined as “ a social structure in which classes are abolished and property commonly controlled, as well as a political philosophy and social movement that advocates and aims to create such a society.” On the other hand, capitalism is “an economic system where capital and land, the non-labor factors or production, are privately owned; labor, goods and resources are traded in markets; and profits, is distributed to the owners invested in technologies and industries.” But the correct definition of capitalism is this: it is a social system solely founded on the recognition of individual rights, including property rights, in which all property is privately owned. The aforementioned definitions of communism, fascism and capitalism show that these three terms have their own distinct concept or attributes.

      Let me establish the following points to demolish the fallacious claim of most stupid advocates of communism in this country:

      Communism, fascism, and capitalism are three terms with distinct meaning, concept, or definition.
      Fascism and capitalism do not have the same meaning and concept. In fact they are opposites.
      Fascism is about “radical and authoritarian” rule of a political despot, while capitalism is a political system that respects individual rights and recognizes the application of objective laws and legal principles.
      Communism is a collectivist political ideology that rejects individual rights, subjugates the individual to the collective, and regards man as the means to the ends of others or the state. Capitalism is the recognition that the individual is an end in himself and not the means to the ends of others.
      Communism and fascism are both a collectivist ideology.
      For the benefit of those who embrace reason and who are still willing to think and to use their mind, let me lay down the similarities between Communism and Fascism. They are as follows:

      Both communism and fascism reject the concept of individual rights. Both regard the individual as the means to the ends of others. Capitalism does the opposite.
      Both communism and fascism are collectivist ideologies.
      Both communism and fascism are a form of totalitarian rule or dictatorship. Any individual may be sacrificed or immolated for the sake of common good, public welfare, or whatever the majority or the dictator deems as ‘practical’ or ‘necessary’ for the sake of the good of the majority or the state.
      Both communism and fascism negate the concept of private property. If communism regards private property as nonexistent, fascism regards private property as a political privilege that may only be given to a special class or group of people (e.g., cronies, czars, etc.)
      Both communism and fascism regard that political power may only be achieved through bloody revolution or class struggle.
      Both communism and fascism are racist ideologies. Karl Marx regarded the capitalist people or states as “racial trash”, while Adolf Hitler considered the Jews and ethnic minorities as lower forms of animal.
      Both communism and fascism are enemies of capitalism.
      Both communism and fascism consider the fact that killing is necessary to achieve their respective political or utopian goal.

      Here: Communism and Fascism: The Twin Evils of Collectivism

      Totalitarianism, communism/socialism, nazism, fascism, theocracy or religious authoritarianism— these are all part and parcel of collectivism, a social, economic and political outlook that stresses human interdependence and the primacy of a collective, rather than the significance of individuals. On the other hand, individualism is the moral, social and political perspective that puts emphasis on human independence and the importance of self-reliance and liberty; it is the opposite of collectivism.

      One of the major parts of the nefarious propaganda of the brainwashed and brainless advocates of communism/socialism is the use of the term “fascism” in order to discredit those who oppose their evil agenda. They try to lump all dissenters and those who are able to grasp the idea behind their evil communistic agenda together as part of a single ideological umbrella- Fascism. They also brand the advocates of capitalism- the only economic and political system that recognizes individual rights- as supporters of fascism. Yet this dishonest and desperate trick only exposes those who were heavily indoctrinated and brainwashed into communism and socialism as a herd of nihilists and ignoramuses who don’t even know the real concept of fascism. If the socialists and liberals had any brains, they would understand that fascism and communism are two collectivist political systems that call for the subjugation of the individual to a collective or a state. Both fascism and communism reject the concept of individual rights, and glorify such collectivist mantras as “common good”, “public good”, “public welfare”, equality, egalitarianism, etc.

      Also you should read the Nazi program here to properly inform yourself: The Program of the National-Socialist (Nazi) German Workers’ Party

      And what did the Nazis actually say about Capitalism and Socialism?

      Joseph Goebbels, the top propagandist of the Nazi regime, spoke of “the money pigs of capitalist democracy”: “Money has made slaves of us.” “Money is the curse of mankind. It smothers the seed of everything great and good. Every penny is sticky with sweat and blood.”

      Goebbels also said: “[S]ocialism is sacrificing the individual to the whole.”

      Consider the following socialist quotations by several members of the Nazi party:

      “The concept of personal liberties of the individual as opposed to the authority of the state had to disappear; it is not to be reconciled with the principle of the nationalistic Reich. There are no personal liberties of the individual which fall outside of the realm of the state and which must be respected by the state. The member of the people, organically connected with the whole community, has replaced the isolated individual; he is included in the totality of the political people and is drawn into the collective action. There can no longer be any question of a private sphere, free of state influence, which is sacred and untouchable before the political unity. The constitution of the nationalistic Reich is therefore not based upon a system of inborn and inalienable rights of the individual.”
      —Ernst Rudolf Huber, official spokesman for the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, 1939

      “THE COMMON INTEREST BEFORE SELF-INTEREST.”
      —NDSAP Program, Point 24, 1920

      “We must rouse in our people the unanimous wish for power in this sense, together with the determination to sacrifice on the altar of patriotism, not only life and property, but also private views and preferences in the interests of the common welfare.”
      —Friedrich von Bernhardi, 1912

      “The worker in a capitalist state—and that is his deepest misfortune—is no longer a living human being, a creator, a maker. He has become a machine. A number, a cog in the machine without sense or understanding. He is alienated from what he produces.”
      —Joseph Goebbels, 1932 pamphlet

      “‘Private property’ as conceived under the liberalistic economic order … represented the right of the individual to manage and to speculate with inherited or acquired property as he pleased, without regard for the general interests … German socialism had to overcome this ‘private,’ that is, unrestrained and irresponsible view of property. All property is common property. The owner is bound by the people and the Reich to the responsible management of his goods. His legal position is only justified when he satisfies this responsibility to the community.”
      —Ernst Rudolf Huber, official Nazi Party spokesman, 1939

      Hitler’s Nazi Party against Capitalism:

      “We German National Socialists have recognized that not international solidarity frees the peoples from the ties of international capital, but the organized national force. …The National Socialist German Workers’ Party asks you all to come … to a GIANT DEMONSTRATION against the continued cheating of our people by the Jewish agents of the international world stock-exchange capital.”
      —Nazi Poster, 1921

      “It is not to save capitalism that we fight in Russia … It is for a revolution of our own. … If Europe were to become once more the Europe of bankers, of fat corrupt bourgeoisies … we should prefer Communism to win and destroy everything. We would rather have it all blow up than see this rottenness resplendent. Europe fights in Russia because it [i.e., Fascist Europe] is Socialist. …what interests us most in the war is the revolution to follow …The war cannot end without the triumph of Socialist revolution.”
      —Leon Degrelle, leading National Socialist figure, speaking on behalf of the Nazi SS in occupied Paris, 1943

      “[W]e will do what we like with the bourgeoisie. … We give the orders; they do what they are told. Any resistance will be broken ruthlessly.”
      —Adolf Hitler, 1931

      “The internal and international criminal gang will either be forced to work or simply exterminated.”
      —Adolf Hitler, 1931

      “Today I will once more be a prophet. If the international Jewish financiers, inside and outside Europe, succeed in plunging the nations once more into a world war, then the result will not be the Bolshevisation of the earth, and thus the victory of Jewry, but the annihilation of the Jewish race in Europe!”
      —Adolf Hitler, 1939

      Bengtista said: //He/she has difficulty distinguishing the difference between right-wing fascism and left wing socialism.//

      The only difference between fascism and socialism is their degree of control or repression of freedom and rights. As the blogger said, there is no such thing as “right-wing fascism”. What makes fascism right-wing? Just because it ‘is’ the government? I call that a fallacy of right-vs-left. I agree with what the blogger said that both socialism and fascism, historically, are against capitalism.

    I don’t need patronizing history lessons from amateurs. To suggest that the Nazis’ ideology is inspired by Karl Marx is contemptible hogwash. I suggest you read Karl Marx’ writings before you make an utter fool of yourself. Try telling that nonsense to 35 million innocent Russians murdered by Hitlers right wing fascist war machine. Oops sorry, I did it because your famous Russian writer Mr Marx inspired me!!!…

    Right wing fascism and it’s corporate proponents are nothing new, but in the Philippines the masses are paid a pittance to accept it. Ultra nationalism and fascism in the Philippines comes under different social and political umbrellas, but in reality it is no different from the flag waving jingoistic krap that the wealthy tax dodging few make us all accept through corporate protectionism and the health, social care and human rights abuses that the impotent masses are forced to have to accept.
    Such abuses in the corporate right wing conservative Philippines are well documented under the UN Human Rights charter.
    ‘Fascists seek elevation of their nation based on commitment to an organic national community where its individuals are united together as one people in national identity. They are united by suprapersonal connections of ancestry and culture through a totalitarian state that seeks the mass mobilization of a nation through discipline, indoctrination, physical training, and eugenics.

    ‘Fascism seeks to eradicate perceived foreign influences that are deemed to be causing degeneration of the nation or of not fitting into the national culture’

    ‘Fascism’s economy is based on corporatism, and a number of other fascist movements similarly promoted corporatism, sometimes through racism and ethnic discrimination.
    In extreme cases ethnic cleansing is the norm under right wing corporate supported fascist movements as was seen in Nazi Germany and Yugoslavia.

    ‘Because there is no clear definition of national socialism, the term has been used to mean very different things. Since the rise of German Nazism, which called itself “National Socialism”, the term has been used in Europe and North America almost exclusively by political parties with combined authoritarian, racial and nationalist views.
    However, in other parts of the world, which had little contact with German Nazism, the term “National Socialism” is sometimes used by parties that define themselves as socialist and patriotic, without being racist. In addition, the term was also used by non-racist groups in Europe before the rise of Nazism.

    Finally, most people equate corporate greed with right wing capitalist abuses, and misleading the people through political vote rigging, corruption, branded right wing fascism, ultra-nationalism and patriotism.

    To quote Samuel Johnson,: Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.
    And it’s dangerous.
    Your poor pathetic extraordinary attempts to convince us all with your neo-Nazi quotes by right wing fascist Hitler is naivety in cloud cuckoo land.

      You said: “I don’t need patronizing history lessons from amateurs.”

      Funny you said that when it’s you who’s clearly an amateur and who doesn’t know world history. You don’t even know that Nazism and Socialism are both totalitarian ideologies. And you’re thinking that you’re an expert? Expert of what? IGNORANCE and MEDIOCRITY?

      Define your term “right-wing facism”.

      “To suggest that the Nazis’ ideology is inspired by Karl Marx is contemptible hogwash.”

      Since I don’t have time to deal with an ignoramus, I can only show you this video… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LseRNVyOYQ Here’s the description: Misconception Number One : Nazism is Right Wing. FACT: Nazism is not Right Wing. Nazism is Left Wing Socialism. The truth is that Nazism was actually created by the German branch of the Left Wing Socialist Workers Party, inspired by Lenin and Marx. Hitler used the Red flag of the communists to identify his Nazi Socialist Party as a Left Wing political movement sharing the Marxist ideals of “Mein Kampf” or “survival of the fittest”.

      Again, read my reply above. Both Nazim and Communism/socialism are against Capitalism and individualism. I know what you’re trying to imply here since you’re an ignoramus: that Nazism and Capitalism are just the same thing. That’s a lie. If that’s what you think, then, I must say, you’re more than an ignoramus.

      Again, there is no such thing as right-wing fascism. That’s exactly what the Left use to fool themselves and to claim fascism is capitalism. That is utterly fallacious. Fascism is NOT Capitalism, and vice versa. Fascism and Socialism are simply twin totalitarian systems. Both are against Capitalism.

      It’s funny you don’t even know that the ultra-nationalists in the Philippines are the leftists. Who are advocating protectionism and more regulations in the Philippines? It seems you don’t know what you’re talking about.

    LOL
    Wow, If your best shot at arguing a point is your insidious vocabulary sinking into personal abuse, I’d like to see things from your point of view but I can’t seem to get my head that far up my ass.
    It shows you’ve lost the argument.
    But keep talking, someday you’ll say something intelligent, but until then unfortunately for you there is no vaccine against stupidity. Especially when you have to resort to personal abuse to state your opinion.
    @Misesian..Calling you stupid would be an insult to stupid people.

    Here’s statement in simple english for you to digest.
    Unfortunately there are NO PICTURES! or VIDEO to to help your brain. The official name of North Korea is the “Democratic People’s Republic of Korea,” but there is nothing democratic about it. There’s not much in a name but both of you clowns need to take off your paranoid anti-‘leftists’ ‘anti-reds .anti-commie’ ( lol) horse blinkers..

    It never ceases to amaze how gutter right-wing capitalist claptrap from idiots as yourselves is swallowed by the misinformed and gullible, hook, line and sucker.

    I’d like to leave you with one thought, but I’m not sure you have anywhere to put it!

  5. August 15, 2012 3:38

    Bengtista,

    It seems that you don’t know what you’re talking about. Or did you ever understand what you just typed? Define what you call right-wing fascism. What makes a political system rightwing? And what makes fascism, which is closer to socialism, a right-wing system. That’s all.

    And are you trying to argue that fascism and capitalism are just the same? Do you even know that the fascists and the Nazists were against capitalism?

  6. August 15, 2012 3:38

    A few comments on Bengtista’s assertions:

    I read Bengtista’s reply and the blogger’s counter-arguments, and I must say that their kinda heated conversation is not that hard to judge because I consider myself to be very familiar with this issue. Based on what I read, Bengtisa is simply parroting the leftists’ talking points against and about Nazism and Fascism. Also, I somehow think that the alleged “personal abuse” by the blogger is justified considering the empty arrogance of Bengtisa, e.g., his claim that “writer of that article needs to take a few lessons in history” and his statement about “not patronizing history lessons from amateurs” when in reality, it is he (Bengtisa) who is the amateur and who badly needs more history lesson.

    Bengtisa said: “Particularly European history about the atrocities the right wing fascist Nazis committed in the name of nationalistic and corporate greed. The writer needs to stop blaming public opinion for the ills of corporate greed.”

    That actually shows that he’s simply parroting the Leftist agenda against Capitalism by trying to lump Capitalism and Nazism/Fascism together. Is that what Bengtisa learned in his college history class?

    To Bengtista: Capitalism is NOT fascism or Nazism. In fact, both fascism or Nazism, if you try to understand basic concepts and principles, are simply forms of socialism or totalitarianism.

    Also, you need to learn something about economics because what you call “corporate greed”, which is another leftist talking point, is the result of socialistic government intervention into the economy. You talked about Europe? You think the EU countries are CAPITALISTS? If that’s your stupid belief then it’s not worth replying to your comment since there’s no use arguing with someone who doesn’t know anything about politics, economics, and history.

    First, know the proper concept of Capitalism, Socialism, Nazism and Fascism. The blogger is right in saying that Nazism, socialism, and fascism are all forms of collectivism or totalitarian ideology because they all deny individual rights and individual freedom. Under these three systems, the individual must be subjugated to the state or to a group or collective. That’s why the primary political mantra of the Nazi program was: “THE COMMON INTEREST BEFORE SELF-INTEREST.” You must be very familiar with that slogan if you’re a leftist. That same slogan was also popularly used in Soviet Russia.

    That is why the Nazi top propagandist Joseph Goebbels in a 1932 pamphlet said: “The worker in a capitalist state—and that is his deepest misfortune—is no longer a living human being, a creator, a maker. He has become a machine. A number, a cog in the machine without sense or understanding. He is alienated from what he produces.”

    And that’s why Ernst Rudolf Huber, official Nazi Party spokesman said: “‘Private property’ as conceived under the liberalistic economic order … represented the right of the individual to manage and to speculate with inherited or acquired property as he pleased, without regard for the general interests … German socialism had to overcome this ‘private,’ that is, unrestrained and irresponsible view of property. All property is common property. The owner is bound by the people and the Reich to the responsible management of his goods. His legal position is only justified when he satisfies this responsibility to the community.”

    Take note the term “German socialism”. Did you learn any of these things in college or in your leftist indoctrination classes, Bengtisa?

    Did you ever forget that NAZI simply means National Socialist Party?

    You said something about the “nationalism” of Nazism. FYI, any collectivist system can either be nationalistic or internationalistm or both. Again, Capitalism is NOT Fascism or Nazism. Any system, including socialism, can be nationalistic. In fact, China practiced socialist nationalism instead of internationalism.

    Also, here’s what you need to understand since it seems that you don’t know anything. Karl Marx DID NOT INVENT SOCIALISM. He simply conceived or created his own socialist system which can be termed as Marxism. In fact, anybody can conceive his own socialistic ideology. I can create my own socialist system, too. There were socialist systems before Karl Marx’s time. There was the Utopian Socialism many, many years before Marx. This is why I am telling you that in theory and in reality, both Nazism and Fascism are socialist systems. The only difference between Nazism/Fascism and Karl Marx’s socialism is that in the first, private property is granted yet CONTROLLED by the state. All other things are controlled by the state, including media, industries, education, etc. In Nazi Germany, the medical and education sectors were SOCIALIZED. Like in Soviet Russia, the Nazi government provided government-funded education, health care, etc. to their citizens. You only read the Nazi program to educate yourself http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Holocaust/naziprog.html .

    Bengtisa, I’d like you to tell me/us why you think Nazism or Fascism is a “right-wing” ideology or political system. I’d like to know if you’re really a critical thinker. Is it because that’s what your comrades told you? Is it because that’s what you learned in college? Or is it because Soviet Russia was Nazi Germany’s enemy? But Soviet Russia was also America’s enemy! And America was also Nazi Germany’s enemy. Or do you believe socialist countries cannot be enemies?

    Here’s one thing you need to know to further educate you: Nazism and Capitalism are opposites. The Nazis considered capitalism an evil system. They also rejected what you call corporate greed.

    mmm Interesting reading.
    However the original writer of the biased article is clearly indoctrinated with the political ideology of the far right. It’s so obvious.
    Using allegations of ‘leftists’ and ‘communists’ has become so predictable and tiresome by right wing corporate apologists in the Philippines. Such corporate right wing ideology is endemic in those who work, and get paid to protect the corporate interests of the moguls in the Philippines. Nobody’s fooled otherwise.
    Clearly lessons from history have not been learned by the far right pseudo- corporate apologists.
    Bengtisa is correct when he/she draws parallels with the rise of far right fascism in Germany in the 1930’s. Only in this case Bentisa perhaps should have qualified the comment by applying it to corporate corruption and political nepotism in the Philippines, at the exclusion of the masses. Of course, corporate denials are fashionable in the country.

      Define right-wing…

      “Corporate right-wing ideology”. You’re talking like you’re from North Korea or Soviet Russia.

      You need to read this, comrade. Try to inform yourself first because it shows your deep level of Marxist indoctrination. https://fvdb.wordpress.com/2012/04/23/is-henry-sy-an-oligarch/

      ” far right fascism in Germany in the 1930′s”…

      Well, that simply proves your poor knowledge of history and lack of critical thinking skills. Nazism simply means National SOCIALIST WORKERS Party. https://fvdb.wordpress.com/2012/08/18/destroying-the-leftist-canard-that-fascism-is-capitalism/
