(NationalSentinel) Ideology: Repeating the far-Left lie that the only thing wrong with communism is that it just hasn’t been implemented correctly yet, MIT has just published a children’s book that seeks to brainwash American youth into believing it is a better form of government than constitutional republicanism.
As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, the book – “Communism for Kids” – attempts to use fairy tales and other kid-friendly fare to pretend as though the most brutal, liberty-stealing, life-choking form of government ever devised is the answer to their future prosperity and growth:
[The book] by a German author who specializes in political theory and “queer politics,” was released last month. The thesis of the children’s book is that communism is “not that hard,” but has not been implemented in the right way.
“Once upon a time, people yearned to be free of the misery of capitalism. How could their dreams come true?” a plot synopsis for the book reads. “This little book proposes a different kind of communism, one that is true to its ideals and free from authoritarianism.”
The book is full of cartoon drawings of “lovable little revolutionaries” that help navigate kids through the “evils” of capitalism.
“Offering relief for many who have been numbed by Marxist exegesis and given headaches by the earnest pompousness of socialist politics, it presents political theory in the simple terms of a children’s story, accompanied by illustrations of lovable little revolutionaries experiencing their political awakening,” MIT Press states.
“It all unfolds like a story, with jealous princesses, fancy swords, displaced peasants, mean bosses, and tired workers—not to mention a Ouija board, a talking chair, and a big pot called ‘the state,'” the plot description continues.
“Before they know it, readers are learning about the economic history of feudalism, class struggles in capitalism, different ideas of communism, and more,” MIT Press notes.
Truth be told, a smart litigator could argue that this book is a form of child abuse, given that in the 20th century alone, communism was responsible for the deaths of 94 million people between 1900 – 2000.
If anything, free-market capitalism isn’t being implemented properly. For 50 years Congress, the federal bureaucracy and successive presidents have used the regulatory state to burden the economy with trillions of dollars worth of rules and commandments, resulting in the loss of trillions more in growth, business expansion, employment and opportunity. When government intervenes minimally in the market, it thrives; when it over-regulates and begins to choose winners and losers (as communism does), the market fails (think Obamacare).
It’s shameful that one of the top technology schools in the country is engaging in deceiving future generations of Americans that our founding constitutional principles of freedom, personal responsibility, liberty and capitalism are subservient to any other form of government.
If we become communists, who’s going to pay the exorbitant fees that MIT charges its students?
