A publication of the international socialist movement has explicitly stated it is promoting abortion and gay “marriage” as part of a multi-pronged campaign to “replace global capitalism” with Marxism.
The admission came on Monday in an article entitled "How Can We Change the World?" by Todd Chretien in the Socialist Worker, which is published by the International Socialist Organization. The ISO proudly “stands in the tradition of revolutionary socialists Karl Marx, V.I. Lenin, and Leon Trotsky.”
Today's young people, Chretien hoped, would carry on a social revolution by waging war on the family.
“When you break the statistics down by age, race and gender, you see what the powers that be are afraid of,” he wrote. “Some 68 percent of people between the ages of 18 and 34, 60 percent of women, and 60 percent of people of color support gay marriage – compared to 46 percent of people over the age of 50, 49 percent of men, and 53 percent of whites. These gaps generally hold true for a host of issues."
Millenials – those born after 1981 – represent the only generation where a majority supports gay “marriage.” Meanwhile, only 38 percent of the nation's largest demographic group, the Baby Boomers, back marriage redefinition, according to a Pew Research Forum in March.
Communist Party member and ACLU founder “Elizabeth Gurley Flynn thought reproductive justice and socialism went hand in hand," he wrote.
So, too, did Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger. When she died in 1966, the New York Times described her as “an active worker for the Socialist Party” whose “friends included radicals of all shades.”
This is something I have stressed on this blog a number of times, that gay marriage especially is about an increase of the power of the state (See Same-sex marriage creates a more powerful state), which links in with a greater ability for governments to impose socialism.
Strong families are more able to resist socialism, while as weak families tend to embrace it, as the state takes over some of the family's functions. Families that break up easily will also embrace socialism so that the parents are more easily able to walk away from their commitments. Abortion imprints in the psyche of the population that children are disposable and removable if they cause the adults to change their lifestyles. Sacrifice for the greater good is actively discouraged.
