It is well known within research circles that socialism and its' evil twin communism are systems of governance invented by unregenerate men to deal with the human condition, but in particular with envy. Joseph Epstein, author and former editor of The American Scholar clearly saw the connection between envy and communist Marxism. He wrote, "When I say that Marxism is based on envy, I mean that the glorious revolution of the proletariat...was really a promise to put a final end to all the conditions that make for envy." (Truths About Socialism, Coral Ridge, p. 66)
Communist Russia, the product of the "glorious revolution" was celebrated and worshipped by Progressives as the Mother Country...a utopia where an end had finally come "to all conditions that make for envy" such as private property ownership, excellence of character, status, personal success, and so on. This is the real meaning of the "peace" "fairness" "redistributive justice" and "equality" promised by Progressives.
By whatever name it calls itself, socialism boils down to salvation for the envy-bitten. It is how the envy-bitten god-man purports to save himself and others from the gnawing, biting teeth of envy. Thus the socialist call to salvation is:
"Come to me (says the envy-bitten god-man), all you who are nothing but chance products of evolution--- envy-bitten soulless apes---and I will give you peace. Take my yoke upon you and I will make monkeys equal to men, losers equal to winners, the bent and crooked equal to the straight and upright, idlers equal to the industrious, the cowardly and fearful equal to the courageous and valiant, liars equal to truthtellers, the lazy equal to the hard-working, the indecent equal to the decent, and all social parasites equal to the hosts they live off of.
This is the peace, justice, freedom, and fairness that I, the envy-bitten god-man bring you in the name of our benefactor Lucifer, our genetic creator, first free thinker, liberator of man from the "evil" Jehovah and the one who makes monkeys of us all.
Henceforth all soulless apes have the complete freedom to lie, cheat, steal, fornicate, covet, hate and murder without guilt, for I---the envy-bitten god-man---have "murdered" God the Father, and having usurped His throne I have banished sin, morality and conscience. This is the salvation offered unto you, for now all sins are permissable in the Devil's socialist "paradise on earth."
Envy: The Driving Engine of Socialism
God is not dead, as today's "natural" man claims, but very much alive. And He commands us not to covet anything that is our neighbor's. In the book of Proverbs He has much to say about envy. "Envy is rottenness to the bones." (Prov. 14:30) and "Do not let your heart envy sinners, but be zealous for the fear of the Lord all the day." (Prov. 23:17).
Envy is the driving engine of Progressive socialism and of evolution, which erases the face of God from all men thereby reducing them to soulless apes. Therefore no Christian should get on board that train. (Truths About Socialism, p. 77)
