The Biggest Lie

Hugo Chavez, having negotiated the release of two prisoners has claimed that The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) is not a terrorist organization, in spite of the groups activities which include but are not limited to; “Bombings, murder, mortar attacks, narcotrafficking, kidnapping, extortion, hijacking, as well as guerrilla and conventional military action against Colombian political, military, and economic targets”

Aside from the fact that anyone with a clue has already noted that bombing, murder, narcotrafficing extorsion and kidnapping are not tools used by legitimate and lawful opposition, this declaration by Chavez is vital as it shows the duplicity of the left, as found in socialism, in Marxism, in Leninism and all the other failed demagogueries that have been hoisted on the people of the planet.

Socialism is an ideology that accepts that freedom is not something won with the blood of a revolutions willing participants, but rather the blood of innocents. This is the lie of their collectivism, the lie that makes the individual worthless and the ideology of the whole the only moral purpose or cause. This lie has been at the root of socialism ever since Engles and Marx first put pen to paper and authored their treatise on human slavery.
