By Daniel Greenfield

"That brought us to our essential difference, the difference of the Evolutionary Collectivist and Marxist, the question whether the social revolution is, in its extremity, necessary, whether it is necessary to over throw one economic system completely before the new one can begin. I believe that through a vast sustained educational campaign the existing Capitalist system can be civilised into a Collectivist world system." -- H.G. Wells, Russia in the Shadows

This quote comes from H. G. Wells' conversation with Vladimir Lenin. Wells was highlighting the difference between Lenin's radical revolutionary program and Wells' own "Open Conspiracy" evolutionary collectivist program.

What that means is that Lenin and H. G. Wells didn't disagree on the final destination, a collectivist world system... socialism on a global scale applied to everyone and every single country. What they disagreed on was how to get there.

Nationalization, the Welfare State and Bureaucracies to control every aspect of human behavior are just some of the building blocks of the emerging "Great Society", the socialism with a human face that Social Liberals have aimed at for well over a century. Unlike Lenin's revolutionary overthrow of capitalism, our transition to a Marxist system was meant to be gradual and seamless. Like a lobster in a pot of boiling water, the temperature was being turned up slowly and gradually. Even now when banks are being nationalized and major automakers turned over to union ownership, it is mainly people over 40 who are even noticing that anything is wrong.

The question is, will we choose to be free or slaves. Will we protect our freedom from government, or give up our freedom to government. Will we come out of the shadows of Obama and the Social Liberal revolution of 2008, or will a new Iron Curtain rise over the land of the free and the home of the brave.
