The Fate of Cyprus Has Always Been Known: Socialist International list of member countries

After the socially hostile reaction the film Atlas Shrugged II received from mainstream critics and media personalities I decided that when it came to the next film I would write 10 positive articles for every negative one to offset in the world of Google and online forums the intended negative impact of the bleeding heart progressives pointing all civilizations the world over toward the fate of the tiny country of Cyprus.  With that in mind, it is likely that my readers here will see many more references to utter my belief that the novel and films of Atlas Shrugged are equivalent to a modern skeleton key of civilization, and that the lessons learned can save mankind from the socialism that has seduced it.  The modern forces that are bankrupting Cyprus and the European Union in general are the same who criticized so openly the film adaptations of Atlas Shrugged so to keep that skeleton key out of the minds of man—and therefore perpetuate the aims of destruction intended by the vile workings of an international group called Socialist International.  CLICK HERE TO VISIT.  I often discuss here many literary endeavors which I admire, but when it comes to predicting the outcomes of world events, declaring the current emergencies for what they are accurately, and providing a light out of the darkness for those unequipped with direction, I can think of no better source than the stories in Atlas Shrugged.

Few people know to what extent Socialist International has penetrated their lives, especially in small town America where they believe the reach of those maniacal tyrants cannot touch them.  A quick investigation into the website of Socialist International shows their areas of concern and it will be quickly discovered that the platform points for the American Democratic Party are nearly identical to those of Socialist International which is deeply embedded in all European politics, particularly in The United Nations.  Socialist International declares through their motto that they are all about “Progressive Politics for a fairer world.”  At first glance especially among the feeble-minded, socialism leading to its big brother “communism” sounds good to those who know they are too lazy, not skilled enough, or simply lacking the intellect to achieve at a high level throughout their lives, so they are attracted to the symbol of Socialist International which is a fist holding a flower—which is to say that the flower is offered to opponents of socialism, but the fist will follow if the flower is not taken.  Socialist International intends through global collectivism all the intentions that crushed the Soviet Union many years ago.  They will have their “fairer” world by forcing those who have, to give up their goods to those who have not.  And in all the literature that I have ever read, I have only seen one source that unapologetically castigates the supporters of socialism as in Atlas Shrugged.  All other works of art cower at the feet of socialism out of the long used method of socialists and communists—the power of guilt.  The attempt by socialists to make out all who work hard and create wealth, enterprise, and new inventions for mankind to be demons who must contribute their efforts to those who were not so “lucky” is long chronicled.

It is because of socialism that Cyprus is failing and the exact method of collapse is the plot of Atlas Shrugged written in 1957.  Why should anybody be surprised that the government there is seeking to loot money from the bank accounts of its citizens to pay their bills when socialism is the commitment?  When individual rights are sacrificed at the feet of collective rights the product is what is happening in Cyprus, Greece, Italy, France and everywhere Socialist International has had success in their work.  Socialism is the cause of the economic failures and Socialist International cannot list by any of their subscribers ONE country that has success with socialism.  Even Sweden has been forced to swing their efforts more toward free market ideas in order to avoid the perils seen in modern Cyprus, but at a cost to individual liberty.  No country has seen fiscal success for their economy following Socialist International—NOT ONE.  I challenge anybody reading this in America or the various other countries who routinely tune in to provide ONE example of where a country is thriving financially under socialism.  IT CAN’T BE DONE so there won’t be any.  Yet Socialist International as can be seen on the list below has its foot in virtually every country on the face of the Earth.  Below is a list of Socialist International members and the names they exist under in those countries.  In America, socialism and communism is a rejected term, so the name Democratic is used instead, as it has in other countries as well.

Ayn Rand knew socialism wouldn’t work because she was in Russia when they made an aggressive move to embrace full communism.  The effort crushed the economy of the Soviet Union, and Ayn Rand fled to The United States to become a great novelist and write books like We The Living chronicling the events of communism in her native country then writing Atlas Shrugged which was a warning to the world about the desires of progressive minded socialists inspired by the faulty mind of Karl Marx.   To date, no creative artist has been as bold as Ayn Rand in speaking against socialism which is why she is such a target among modern progressives.  Even in The United States socialism is aggressively spreading.  California, because of its progressive policies is next in line to be Cyprus.  The finances of California will collapse under the heavy taxation and tendency to sap the strength of the strong and innovative in order to feed the weak and complacent.

Fairness has a cost and in the end all suffer when they disincentivize the strong in order to prop up the weak.  Those who work to be strong, do so not by some mystical luck, but by their own ambition.  Socialist governments disincentivize such behavior with the faulty belief the strong will continue to produce, innovate, and build society in a positive way.  Only Ayn Rand has had the guts to spell out such doom clearly without mincing words.  The critics of her work are primarily those who are directly or indirectly involved in the efforts of Socialist International throughout the world but hide their radicalism behind legitimate publications and media companies.  The best way to flush them out of hiding is by studying who speaks out against Atlas Shrugged.  Ayn Rand’s work undoes the effort of Socialist International, which is the greatest threat to their existence.

For this reason I will continue to write about Atlas Shrugged aggressively for the next year and a half.  Once the third and final film comes out in the summer of 2014, and people not familiar with the work inquire over the internet where the John Galt speech came from and want to know more about Atlas Shrugged, they will run across my articles written about the events that most affect them and understand how the messages of Atlas Shrugged can be applied to a situation like that found in Cyprus.  It does not take an army to defeat the workings of Socialist International.  It only requires the effort of those who are productive to rob from the socialists the hidden meaning behind their “fairness” and to define the agenda correctly.  In that regard, Atlas Shrugged is the most powerful tool to utilize against such foes, which deserves to be exploited utterly—and without apology.  To do so is to attempt to avoid the fate of places like Cyprus.  For that small island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, Socialist International has already destroyed the economy never to return again under the flag of socialism.  Ayn Rand predicted the exact methods places like Cyprus would fall prey to and those predictions should be studied, and honored so that the same fate can be avoided elsewhere.  For my part, I will continue to sound the bugle of Ayn Rand so that perhaps similar fates can be avoided in other places where it’s not yet too late.
