Many of the world’s richest people — people whom most socialists would certainly consider vulture capitalists and wealth-gorging criminals who smother the world’s poor — are some of the greatest supporters of not only American national socialism, but global socialism. The many left-wing groups in this country — Change.org, Planned Parenthood, Black Lives Matter, MoveOn.org, ACLU, etc. — would barely exist except for the billions of dollars they have received from foundations with names like Rockefeller, Ford, Carnegie, and Gates, and individual billionaires with names like Rockefeller, Soros, Steyer, Bloomberg, and Sandler.
Following his visit to Communist China in 1973, David Rockefeller, then the most famous banker in the world, wrote, “One is impressed immediately by the sense of national harmony,” and “there is very real and pervasive dedication to Chairman Mao and Maoist principles.” He went on to make the astounding claim that “the social experiment in China under Chairman Mao’s leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history.” Keep in mind, he made this visit and this statement during the height of China’s violent Cultural Revolution, when Mao’s Red Guards were murdering, torturing, and terrorizing the people of China.
Rockefeller, known as “Mr. Globalist,” was chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission and a top leader of the uber-elite Bilderberg Group. He and his fellow globalists have consistently promoted the centralization and concentration of political and economic power at home and abroad, and have assisted many Marxist dictatorships in oppressing their peoples. The billionaire globalists of Wall Street behemoths such as Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, and Citibank, and Big Tech giants such as Apple, Microsoft, and Google love Communist China and other socialist regimes around the world. For one thing, they love having market share given to them by government, rather than having to compete in a free market against other established corporations and upstart entrepreneurs. They believe their wealth and position will guarantee them a permanent, privileged rank among the ruling elite.
The globalists and the communists/socialists are all pursuing the same thing: power, wealth, and control. And they work together to centralize power and remove all checks and balances that hinder the exercise of that power. However, they know that an open appeal for power (“Give me power over every aspect of your life”) is a total non-starter — even “progressives” would balk at it. No, the socialist appeal for power must always be camouflaged under proposals for “helping,” “saving,” and “reforming.” As in “helping” the children, the elderly, the homeless, and the poor, or “saving” the environment, or “reforming” education, the criminal justice system, etc…
