Neo-Communists

Neo-coms: “Inside Every Progressive Is A Totalitarian Screaming To Get Out” @horowitz39, David Horowitz
 
“A key to the mentality of the left is that it judges itself by its best intentions, and judges its opponents – America chief among them – by their worst deeds. Or by fantasies of what their worst deeds might be. By imagining a perfect world of social justice that leftists, unopposed, will create, even America’s most positive achievements can be made to look bad. If a world can be created in which everyone will be fed and have shelter and medical attention, then the fact that it isn’t can be attributed to America, because America is the guardian of the international ‘status quo.'”
 
“Therefore every good that America has achieved can be seen in its reality – from the point of view of social justice – as a negative instead. It may be the case, for example, that America has raised unprecedented millions out of the ranks of poverty into a comfortable middle-class existence. But a neo-communist sees this achievement as one that is realized at the expense of a million greater achievements. A historical good that America has accomplished is thus turned into a malevolent result. By extension, when the left acts to weaken America or defends America’s enemies, it is really advancing the cause of social progress. This is the neo-communist creed.”
 
“Therefore, let us call such radicals neo-communists, or neo-coms (or small “c” communists) for short… Neo-communists survive on bad faith. In the past, communists believed in what they did; today neo-communists justify their deeds by invoking the excuse of good intentions. But isn’t this just what all utopians do? If you believe in a future that will redeem mankind, what lie will you not tell, and what crime will you not commit, to make the future happen? This is why progressives have committed every crime in the last half century and lied to all, especially themselves. The communist mantra that ‘the ends justify the means’ is exactly the rationalization that neo-communists use to defend their alliances with reactionary Islamic radicals and fascist regimes. Using good intentions to justify evil deeds is the first requirement of a utopian bad faith.”
“Neo-communism, then is a term to identify the contemporary left, …which denounces American corporations and the global capitalist system; it is a term to describe anti-American leftists who demonize the American economic system and identify it as a ‘root cause’ of global problems.”
