Understanding Political Ideologies
The critical theory of cultural Marxist ideology in the United States today originates from Europe, not from the US. Increasing knowledge of political definitions goes a long way to understanding the American decline and the continuing slide into a police state. Elsewhere, the author givesa detailed description of western decline  and those behind the chaos.
The endgame is an elite dictatorship of politicians, bankers and corporations, which is slowly becoming apparent to many, minus the shape shifting reptiles, right wing plots and conspiracy theory explanations. In an era of mass unemployment, transient multicultural populations and the biggest recession in living memory, progressivism is a readily available option to prevent the complete social collapse of many countries. Progressivism is all communism was and cultural Marxism is simply the deconstruction of tradition used to enable a dependency on government to occur. Additionally and not confined to the left, it remains a popular concept across the political spectrum and where the current phrase, ‘It doesn’t matter who you vote for, nothing changes’, originates from.
Consequently, the failure to understand European ideologies produces the inability to define the differences between socialism, socialist and communism, or equality as an abstract. This is why Bernie Sanders, posing as a democratic socialist, but a lifelong Maoist, can use the Democrat party as a disguise. The use of a masquerade also allows Alinsky radical, Hillary Clinton, a 1% multimillionaire, to run as a Democratic progressive. This is the reality of progressivism , sold to the populations as progress, in which it’s hoped the soundbite disguises the realism of where many of the 20th century dictators got their ideas from, including Hitler.
Other misunderstandings also proliferate, for example; Islam is not a religion, but an ideology and capitalism is not an ideology, it is an economic system. It’s all rather intentionally confusing, purposely used by politicians to mislead and is what produces a bizarre belief that Obama is a Messiah  in large sections of a perplexed and gullible population.
Explaining Political Definitions
Socialism/Socialist The economics of socialism allows private wealth through taxation to provide the needs for society to function, for example, roads, hospitals, and schools. As populations increase, taxation rises and in an era of mass unemployment, the infrastructure provided by socialism starts to collapse. The State then privatises to reduce taxation, introduces austerity measures to save money, or nationalises, which Marx termed the 'stepping stone to communism.'
The term socialist, as distinct from socialism, occurs when the government uses private wealth taxation to promote political agendas and dependency. Promoting equality (Spreading the wealth around), collectivisation (You didn’t build that on your own) and the normalisation of mass welfare (Government dependency) are all examples of socialist policies.
As an ideology, socialism is either national or International . What the west has is International socialism  based around government welfare dependency; a socially engineered experiment to create a dumbed down utopia of equality, diversity and multiculturalism, funded by capitalism.
The Ideology of Progressivism
Beware the slogans of, 'change, forward', and ‘progress’; they all contain the hidden meaning of progressivism. Progressivism occurs when the radicals in western governments turn on the BLM and occupy movements and stop supporting protest riots. Progressivism is elitist bureaucratic and management control originating from the early American 20th century and the European Union is an example.
Designed to control the effects of mass transient populations during the industrial revolution, progressivism and its reliance on eugenics and racial theories is where Hitler got many of his ideas. Think - the eugenics of Planned Parenthood and Democrat micro control of collapsing cities. A continuing recession and economic downturn, transient populations and mass poverty provide the perfect breeding ground for dictatorships, as the need for control rises in proportion. It is not a coincidence that the more government dependency, diversity and freedom given, the greater the government control needed to limit the damaging effects. The European Union is a perfect example of progressivism.
The European Union
''It was devised to ensure that the great mass of people could not control government, ever again.''

Ordinarily, we compare our status and relative standard of living in society to those around us. When all around have nothing, the equality of poverty becomes normalised and the population begins to cheer on those that feed them. The difference between socialist and communist policies is that the state now owns private wealth and the means to produce it – the means and modes of production. This is why communist societies have no need for capitalism, or the need for individuals to possess or create wealth, the state already owns it. The state then simply becomes a distributor of what already is and why all societies that abandon capitalist wealth creation go bankrupt. Think Zimbabwe  and more recently, Venezuela  . Consequently, the largest countries that survived the collapse of socialist ideals are those that reverted back to wealth creation and capitalism; China and Russia.
After the results of the 20th century, communism became a dirty word and was at various times described as liberal fascism, or more recently, progressivism to disguise it. This produced a continuous series of elite progressive dictatorships, which is all communism ever was. No more revolutions, as social justice warriors using identity politics replace the workers, ghetto's become the new Gulags and welfare provides bread for all.
Do the following two quotes reflect today’s society? Think safe spaces, controlled speech and derogatory labelling.
''We can and must write in language which sows among the masses hate, revulsion, and scorn toward those who disagree with us.''
''When certain obstructionists become too irritating, label them, after suitable build-ups, as Fascist or Nazi or anti-Semitic […] the association will, after enough repetition, become 'fact' in the public mind.''
They are both quotes by Lenin!
Understanding Modernity Politics
Understanding European ideologies behind people like Obama, Clinton and Sanders gives a telling idea of whom they are and what they represent. Additionally, former USSR communists know what Obama is and mock him. The offer of, ''Change you can believe in'', ''Feel the Bern'' and ''Working for us'' is nothing new. Europeans laugh at these people, which left a 20th century Europe looking like a graveyard. The irony is that the occupy movements wish to scrap the very economic system that produces wealth for a mass welfare state and at the same time vote in the 1% they’re protesting about. Equality remains an abstract, a belief, which has never happened in the whole of history and the EU slogan ‘ Diversity is our strength’ is the exact opposite of cohesion, which held all previous societies together.
The millennials might well scratch their heads that the rich and poor divide has massively increased, government dependency food stamp recipients are soaring and in countries approaching 50% welfare dependency, while the unemployment rate is touted at 5%!
The key to understanding and surviving modern day politics therefore, lies in viewing ideologies as circular, not linear, with the centre at the top and the clockwise right and anti-clockwise left of extremism meeting at the bottom. As each moves further in its respective direction, the centre middle ground becomes the extreme. At the bottom is the choice of the Gestapo or KGB, concentration camps or slave labour camps, all culminating, without exception, as police states.
''We'll be fighting in the streets With our children at our feet And the morals that they worship will be gone And the men who spurred us on Sit in judgement of all wrong They decide and the shotgun sings the song . . . Then I'll get on my knees and pray We don't get fooled again'' The Who, 1971.
