The Dangers of Socialism

Ezra Taft Benson said: "Another notable counterfeit system to the Lord's plan is collective socialism. Both communism and socialism have the same effect upon the individual—a loss of personal liberty. Compulsory benevolence is not charity. Today Socialist—who call themselves Progressives (His word egalitarians) are using the federal government to redistribute wealth in our society, not as a matter of voluntary charity, but as a so-called matter of right." Mr. Benson was in Dwight Eisenhower's cabinet, later became President of the Mormon Church. While in government, and serving just after the Second World War, he saw up-close the evils of socialism. Nazi means National Socialism. It is a dangerous way to live, but can be made to sound so good by those who want to control others.

And the sad aspect to this is that there are so many who are willing to give up their freedoms—indeed, I'll add their integrity (a piece of their soul)—for someone to give them things. Today those things are "cradle to grave" so-called security.

In our current society we see health care being thrust upon us. Another form of government control. Hitler said, 'Control people Health Care and you control the people." (Paraphrased) Another place it is noted that the current communist ideology is found in the Environmental Movement. And don't get me started on Gun Rights, and government's attempt to disarm it's citizens.

There have always been tyrants who will rob people of their liberties to control them. And they are better at messaging than the common folk, the great ruck, are at truly protecting themselves. Add to this, that these control freaks sneak in and often move slowly, implementing their insidious policies gradually. And then, it becomes too late.
