Here is a clip from the documentary “The Soviet Story ” :
A newspaper headline is included: “Shaw Heaps Praise Upon the Dictators” The subtitle is: “While Parliaments Get Nowhere, He Says, Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin Do Things”
There is an actual film clip of George Bernard Shaw (at the 30 second mark), which I’ve transcribed as accurately as I can:
“You must all know half a dozen people at least who are no use in this world, who are more trouble than they are worth. Just put them there and say Sir, or Madam, now will you be kind enough to justify your existence?
“If you can’t justify your existence, if you’re not pulling your weight [garbled], if you’re not producing as much as you consume or perhaps a little more, then, clearly, we cannot use the organizations of our society for the purpose of keeping you alive, because your life does not benefit us and it can’t be of very much use to yourself.”
Then there is a quote cited as being from the Listener, 7 Feb 1934, where George Bernard Shaw says:
I “appeal to the chemists to discover a human gas that will kill instantly and painlessly. Deadly by all means, but humane not cruel…”
I was subjected to studying his “Pygmalion” play in school and I never could relate to its soul-destroying content. It makes me think of death.
And unfortunately, I have to say, I get the sense that a lot of our culture in Canada and elsewhere is contaminated with the rationalist stink of formaldehyde emanating from Fabian ideology.
The forces of Shaw’s Fabian socialism – people like Blair and Brown and their American counterparts – are still running the world today and have gradually sucked the life out of our world, out of humanity.
They run the human soul into the ground, oh-so-gradually-and-slowly destroying everything life-giving about our cultures, purifying them of all the things they disapprove of, all the ‘political incorrectness’ they can root out.
Surrounding us with their universal tomb of total control, all their massive web of laws that negate our property rights, control our lifestyles, invade our homes, invade our families, invade our financial transactions, invade our minds, destroying eventually all remaining freedoms and all individuality, and all independence – if they could.
And they’re just one side of the pyramid that is crushing humanity. On the other sides are big governments and big corporations who loot tax-payers to fund technology used for total surveillance and total destruction.
And you are going to keep commemorating this man?
What kind of people do you think run this world? What exactly is their ideology?
And listening to the socialist Shaw and his intense focus on ‘rationalism’ and getting rid of the unfit and lazy, you sort of get a sense of what the problem is with much of materialist ideology on the “capitalist” side. Don’t both left and right take a dump all over human values with their focus on economics? The right introduced “terrorism” to beat us with, and the left introduced “climate change” to beat us with. What’s the difference? Hey, maybe it’s the same beast. Actually we can see that.
Same system of economic central planning, of destruction of property rights, limitation of competition, economic and personal freedoms, sometimes throwing us a bone here and there for years to keep us busy and distracted.
As we know from doing a quick review of the Communist Manifesto, most of the planks are in place anyway – income tax, central banking, etc, etc. The “two” supposedly opposite systems have been merged into one.
So do you think they left out Shaw’s eugenics ideology or is it just disguised under other names?
