Marxism is not LIKE a Cargo Cult, It IS a Cargo Cult

For at least a decade one of our mantras has been “Political Correctness” is not LIKE a religion, it IS a religion, and we developed that into several approaches we made successful.

I was just reading a book that included a description of cargo cults, and made THIS general observation from that.

Cargo cults resulted from a very close and shrewd observations by natives of the islands that became air bases in the Pacific during World War II.

And even I, an Evil Racist if ever there was one, do not laugh at them the way more “sophisticated” observers do.  They saw what they saw, and they acted on it.  photo thatcher.jpg

The islanders had almost no knowledge of these strangers who came FLYING into their land.

So the natives did what the most advanced scientist would do:

They observed the strangers’ activities very carefully and tried to learn from it.

The whites called all those riches “cargo,” and their aim was to get cargo of their own.

Their first observation, AND IT WAS PERFECTLY ACCURATE — was that the outsiders did not PRODUCE a single bit of all that “cargo” that kept flooding in.

And they were dead accurate.

So how DID the strangers get all that precious “cargo?”

First of all, as the natives ACCURATELY noted, the strangers did not PRODUCE any of it.

So the natives who wanted “cargo” did what the people who actually GOT the cargo did.

They put things that looked like earphones in their ears.

They cleared landing areas for the mysterious flying machine to land in.

They put up strings leading to the earphones.

And they waited.

In real history, when Lenin’s Bolsheviks took over Russia, they did exactly the same basic thing: They set up offices and sent people out to redistribute the cargo, which we call production. And they were astonished to find that there wasn’t any production.

This is where Marxism starts out. A far as they can tell things are produced and they just need to distribute it.

This is insane. It is insane but it is also Marxism.

The Marxism system collapsed because it never learnt to produce anything.
