Inching toward ‘Harrison Bergeron.' The monstrous, murderous collectivist lie of "equality" and the perfectibility of man.

We must finally understand that of all the precious capital in the world, the most precious capital, the most decisive capital, is human beings . . . Cadres are the key to everything. -- J. Stalin, Address to the Graduates from the Red Army Academies, 4 May 1935.
“To build communism it is necessary, simultaneous with the new material foundations, to build the new man. . . This is the dictatorship of the proletariat operating not only on the defeated class but also on individuals of the victorious class . . . Man under socialism, despite his apparent standardization, is more complete. . . In this way he will reach total consciousness of his social being, which is equivalent to the full realization as a human creature. . .” -- Che Guevara, “Socialism and Man in Cuba,” a letter to the editor of the Uruguayan weekly Marcha, published March 1965.
Inequality warriors vs. the family and the individual
Remember, a socialist is a communist who has not yet found his AK-47 and the will to use it, whereas a communist is a socialist who has found his AK-47 and is willing to kill you with it. -- "Things I Taught My Children," unpublished, Mike Vanderboegh

A communist is an impatient socialist.

Harrison Bergeron Was a fantastic story written so long ago by Kurt Vonnegut, in a book of short stories named "Welcome to the Monkey house". It was the best story (I felt) in the book and I have remembered it since reading it back sometime around 1988. Even then I could see our society going in the direction of the novel.
