Socialism, this is a subject that a well known Russian author who lived under it, and suffered under it can explain to us. What it really is, and what it represents; if we will be willing to hear him.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was a man born in Russia in the 20th century, and lived through the Lennen and Stalin regimes. He spent over 10 years in the prison camps called "gulags". It was banned in many countries, people who were found to own one were persecuted, some lost their lives. He suffered persecution of various sorts throughout his life. In the seventies he settled in Cavendish Vermont, living a private life until he returned to his native Russia in 1994 with his wife. He died near Moscow on August 3, 2008. His life, and many other's is proof that the truth cannot be silenced-as much as those bent on evil would love to kill it, and all those who speak it. The truth, like oil, always rises to the top. The devil and all the demons of hell found this out, when they thought they had killed the Savior, Jesus Christ on the cross. Three days later, he rose from the grave, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus told us in John 14:6 I am the way the truth and the life, no man comes to the Father but by Me. Full of the oil of the Holy Spirit on that cross- he also rose to the top.
The KGB and other's were relentless in their persecution of him throughout his life, including assassination attempts on his life. He remained true to his stand and continued to write of what he saw and knew of the "socialist experiments of his country". He gave the Harvard address in 1978, the year I was saved, and I knew when I listened to him, that we were already on a downward slide into the hell he came out of in Russia. Today, I'm seeing it playing out in the democratic election process, and the nomination of Bernie Sanders.
His followers have the same mentality as the socialists in Russia had, during Solzhenitsyn's life there; if everybody doesn't think and act the same, if your ideology is different than mine-you need to be put away in a confined place away from the rest of us. I've watched video footage and the screaming, yelling youth who follow Sander's, say they want to see "those crazy conservatives" put away, and locked up away from the rest of the "intelligent people" of this country. This is a danger sign of great magnitude, but not enough are seeing how close we really are to having our own "gulag's" start being implemented. Sanders would not hesitate to start up martial law, and start rounding up those they feel don't fit in to the society they want to create-and put them under lockdown in FEMA camps. I've seen footage of the inside of some of these camps, they are prisons.
A sidenote to the this: People should pay attention to the fact that the people these progressives and socialists call dangerous aren't Muslims, Buddhists, or any other religion-it's Christians. The steady onslaught of beheadings, murders, rapes and torture by militant Muslims will keep being covered up, repressed and kept out of public view as much as possible so you won't wake up to the reality of the brutality of their religion. And all other religions are considered acceptable-with their millions of gods, and ridiculous beliefs which result in widespread poverty and brutality, including family members murdered; but Christians are the most hated, and persecuted in the world, just as Jesus said we would be-because they hate Him.
This is being posted because no one will ever say if they read this, that they weren't warned; if we see the collapse of this nation under socialism. Solzhenitsyn warned us, I'm re-posting his warnings, because I see it coming right at us. Take the time out of your TV, ball games, video games, and entertainment-and watch the footage below; then lift up your head, and look and listen. If you do, I hope it moves you enough to make some changes in your values, and assess what your probably going to face in your lifetime. Then ask yourself what your willing to suffer and die for. These are realities we will be facing whether we like it or not; as Solzhenitsyn had to face them.
Excerpt from Wikipedia- "Solzhenitsyn also harshly criticized what he saw as the ugliness and spiritual vapidity of the dominant pop culture of the modern West, including television and much of popular music: "...the human soul longs for things higher, warmer, and purer than those offered by today's mass living habits... by TV stupor and by intolerable music." Despite his criticism of the "weakness" of the West, Solzhenitsyn always made clear that he admired the political liberty which was one of the enduring strengths of Western democratic societies. In a major speech delivered to the International Academy of Philosophy in Liechtenstein on 14 September 1993, Solzhenitsyn implored the West not to "lose sight of its own values, its historically unique stability of civic life under the rule of law—a hard-won stability which grants independence and space to every private citizen."

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me,
saith the LORD.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto
The Victory of Our Faith
is born of God overcometh the world: and this is
the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
Who is he that overcometh the world,
but he that believeth
that Jesus is the
Son of God?
But they that wait
upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
The Whole Armor
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all,
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
