No matter how brainwashed people think about ‘the evils of capitalism’, how it puts some people at a disadvantage to prop others up, it is the best system of wealth that humanity has created in the world. It creates a system that rewards people for working hard every single day, where if you do something with all your passion and all your ability, like me working on this blog, researching news stories, and becoming the best internet dissident I can become, meritocracy will take over, and you will grow. Almost everywhere a country has ’embraced’ socialism, restrictions are created to curtail people’s freedoms, and almost everybody becomes a slave to the state. It’s ironic, an ‘ideology’ that says they will free people never does and makes people controlled under an authoritarian rule. So when leftists decide to make some people some ‘folk hero’, I laugh. But in this day and age, when our governments are becoming exceedingly more left-leaning, their ‘heroes’ are propped up more and more. Yesterday, I found out that the Irish Government is immortalising Che Guevara with a postal stamp. Yeah, you got me right, a butchering murderer who had no understanding of how to motivate people to work got himself a stamp.
Families are still reeling from the aftershocks of the Cuban revolution and the Castro regime
When it comes down to it, Che Guevara, someone who took the Hippocratic oath to become a doctor, decided it would be better he went around to murder people who didn’t share his political views, to ‘liberate the world’ from capitalism and all of its evils. He personally, on the day of mass executions after they had ‘won’ the war to ‘liberate’ Cuba, killed between 55 and 105 people. All because Che thought capitalism is an ‘imperialist’ force that stole from the poor to give to the rich. He hated capitalism because he only saw that it brought suffering. But what did he replace it with, socialism, which was even worse? And his ‘version’ of socialism was very brutal.
A further integral part of fostering a sense of “unity between the individual and the mass”, Guevara believed, was volunteer work and will. To display this, Guevara “led by example”, working “endlessly at his ministry job, in construction, and even cutting sugar cane” on his day off. He was known for working 36 hours at a stretch, calling meetings after midnight, and eating on the run. Such behavior was emblematic of Guevara’s new program of moral incentives, where each worker was now required to meet a quota and produce a certain quantity of goods. As a replacement for the pay increases abolished by Guevara, workers who exceeded their quota now only received a certificate of commendation, while workers who failed to meet their quotas were given a pay cut. Guevara unapologetically defended his personal philosophy towards motivation and work, stating:
This is not a matter of how many pounds of meat one might be able to eat, or how many times a year someone can go to the beach, or how many ornaments from abroad one might be able to buy with his current salary. What really matters is that the individual feels more complete, with much more internal richness and much more responsibility.
I’ve stated this before, Pavlov proves that socialism will never work. If we look at Guevara’s ‘new program of moral incentives’, the person who does the best gets a certificate, essentially a pat on the back (yay), and those who don’t get punished. It reminds me of Spider-Man 2 with Tobey McGuire and his crazy Russian landlord. What can you do with a ‘pat on the back’?
What material benefit does one get when he exceeds his or her quota? The answer there is no benefit to it, so why even do that? So the system Guevara essential created was, you are a rat in a punishment maze. If your economic system doesn’t follow Pavlov’s experiments on motivation, it is going to fail. Che’s system was the rat in a punishment maze. Make sure you meet your quota and no benefit for anybody exceeding it. Capitalism is the rat in the maze with a piece of cheese at the centre. If you work hard and keep working hard, you will get your reward, and therefore people will continue to work hard to ensure they maximise their performance in the system.
And what happened in Guevara’s maze of punishment?
Whatever the merits or demerits of Guevara’s economic principles, his programs were unsuccessful. Guevara’s program of “moral incentives” for workers caused a rapid drop in productivity and a rapid rise in absenteeism.
LOL! Who would have thought? In a maze that only punishes people if they do the ‘wrong thing’, it promotes people who avoid all that pain and suffering, as Pavlov predicted. I know our system seems to be stacked against us sometimes, but in a capitalist system with social programs, like Canada, it can really foster the best talent. Once upon a time, I use to complain how the ‘system’ wasn’t fair. And then I decided, I needed to take the pay hit to do something that I loved doing, working on my comics and my blogs every single day. If my fiancé and I had to rely on her social assistance, and do odd jobs to keep on top of bills, then that is what I will need to do. Canada’s commitment to capitalism and social programs is the best system you can create in the world. It is a massive reward to be able to pay my bills by doing some odd jobs while receiving government assistance and being able to write this blog every single day.
Guevara’s philosophy wouldn’t benefit me. I’d be busy ‘meeting my quota’, and you know my blog would only serve to ‘praise Castro and Guevara ‘because if I didn’t, He’d jail me for ‘being an enemy of the people’.
To promote this concept of a “new man”, the government also created a series of party-dominated institutions and mechanisms on all levels of society, which included organisations such as labour groups, youth leagues, women’s groups, community centres, and houses of culture to promote state-sponsored art, music, and literature. In congruence with this, all educational, mass media, and artistic community based facilities were nationalized and utilized to instill the government’s official socialist ideology.In describing this new method of “development”, Guevara stated:
There is a great difference between free-enterprise development and revolutionary development. In one of them, wealth is concentrated in the hands of a fortunate few, the friends of the government, the best wheeler-dealers. In the other, wealth is the people’s patrimony.
It’s hilarious, for people to be free of ‘the evils of capitalism’, where people are encouraged to work hard, learn more because it is a material benefit to us, we need to become slaves to the state. Leftists talk about slavery all the time, but in a communist state, we have to ‘meet your quota’ as a moral obligation. Can anybody say black slaves on a plantation? You say anything against the government and they will either throw you in prison or execute you, and all your art and writing that gets distrusted has to be ‘government approved’. That sounds so much better than capitalism and freedom.
And this is who Ireland is the honour, a man who would enslave every person into a government system where the government oppresses everybody to meet quotas, taking away our artistic freedom to write, paint and create anything we want, and you cannot make a profit. It is doomed to fail. And Che envisioned a worldwide revolution, which means millions would die. He was going to liberate all of Latin America, and then later the whole planet, to take our world back from ‘capitalism’, to create a brand new world where everybody would enjoy the ‘equality of outcome’, except if you didn’t make your quota.
And yet the media tries to give us ‘Utopia’s later. As I was reading about Guevara’s life, one thing about this ‘new man’ I was reading struck a familiar chord with me. The word is Star Trek. In the distant future, people will no longer work hard for ‘material gain’ but to ‘better themselves’, because they have a more ‘evolved sensibility’.
Fifty years after he was gunned down in a Bolivian jungle, revolutionary iconoclast Ernesto “Che” Guevara is still setting off controversy.
This week marks the anniversary of the death of the Argentina-born figure who helped Fidel Castro topple the Batista regime in 1959. To honour the occasion, the Irish government has released a one euro stamp featuring the image of the revolutionary.
And the only reason this is happening is that Guevara had some Irish in him. I can’t believe how people refuse to learn what Che did. I’ve made a fantastic argument that the guy was utterly one of the world greatest villains because he wanted a system that would punish people if they underperformed, where all mass communication had to be government approved, and there was no benefit to work harder and exceed your quota. I don’t see this person as a hero, but an enslaver. Villains are villains because they think they are doing the right thing, and that twists them up inside, and then they become fanatics. Che was your fundamental fanatic who was so consumed by capitalism; he lost himself in a murderous rage.
I hope the Irish Government will bow to the public pressure to remove the stamp. This is outrageous. We shouldn’t be honouring one of the greatest enslavers the world has ever seen. Che and Castro enslaved a nation, and Castro became a multi-millionaire, despite ‘all the good intentions of socialism’. Why we continue to honour these kinds of ‘heroes’ is beyond me, and it needs to stop. We shouldn’t be honouring people like Che, and anybody who does is a moron who hasn’t read the history of the things he did and critically thought about it. Socialism like Che’s that doesn’t materially reward people for doing better than others while punishing people who can’t keep up is not a system we should not be encouraging. It was like Cuba had become a plantation in the south. Every person was a slave that needed to get back to work, because ‘Massa Che’ said so.
Thanks for reading and have a great day guys.
