The Hissings of Richard Wolff

The “Workers” and the “Working Class” are abstract props for Internationalist Marxists like Richard Wolff, useful means to the end which, of course, is International Power.  

You don’t think Marxism has it’s own Dictator-for-Life Oligarchs? History is littered with them.

Richard Wolff talks like a sweet old grandpa to impressionable people, but in fact he is another snake in the garden who knows very well that Free Markets have given the world goods and consumer choices like never before in the whole of human history; it has given us virtually everything we know and use. Not that this hasn’t brought us many problems, laments and moral dilemmas. But I’d rather face, seek to fix or avoid these problems than be under the heel of a Lenin, Stalin, Mao, or… fill in the blanks, there’s many to choose from.

The simple truth is that Free Markets are effective in the production of goods with minimal, though often necessary, regulation. Even the extremely oppressive Chinese regime had to adopt “Capitalism” in order to function at all, but of course they had to retain their Orwellian Marxist underpinnings in order to maintain the suffocating grip of control over everyone and everything.

Every  economic system has problems. But I’d even rather be free and even at times neglected by “Capitalism” than be “equal” to other worker-bees in Marxism’s large variety of Gulags.

Solzhenitsyn on Socialism

“In different places over the years I have had to prove that socialism, which to many western thinkers is a sort of kingdom of justice, was in fact full of coercion, of bureaucratic greed and corruption and avarice, and consistent within itself that socialism cannot be implemented without the aid of coercion. Communist propaganda would sometimes include statements such as ‘we include almost all the commandments of the Gospel in our ideology’. The difference is that the Gospel asks all this to be achieved through love, through self-limitation, but socialism only uses coercion” — Nobel laureate and author of The Gulag Archipelago Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, in St. Austin Review interview with Joseph Pearce, Sr., February 2003.


Clever Marxist: “Wolff’s inspiration for his speaking style is the famed comedian Richard Pryor. Wolff was a huge fan, and he studied Pryor’s delivery and technique and how he addressed taboos around race, sex and swearing. Wolff decided he would do the same but by tackling what he says is the true American taboo: the country’s political and economic system.”
