Christianity and Communism are the Same Thing

It is an unfortunate and uncomfortable truth that Christianity, since at least the days of Augustine, and Communism, with all of its insipid incarnations, are philosophically and structurally identical. Both have an absolute Ideal to which all people are not only obligated, but of which all people are an absolute function. In Christianity this Ideal is God. In Communism this Ideal is the Working Class…or the People. Now of course in America’s incarnation of Communism, which is more ostensibly of the social type, the Ideal is Diversity, or Social Justice. Of course any person who is even remotely honest with himself ¬†understands that these are simply euphemisms for anti-white racism and (usually white, heterosexual, cisgendered) anti-male sexism. Both have an absolute Authority which exists to force compliance to the Ideal, which means that the Authority possesses the absolute legal right to commit violence against anyone it deems to be in violation of the moral and metaphysical tenets of the Ideal, and which exists as the Ideal’s physical and practical incarnation. In Christianity this Authority is the priesthood class, which also includes typically protestant officials like pastors and various deacons and even “home/care group” leaders. And in Communism this Authority is the Party. Within the Authority is a hierarchy of power which culminates at the top with a single official ultimately wielding the sum and substance of the entire panoply of the power of the Authority. In Christianity this can be the Pope or the Head/Lead Pastor, depending on which denomination is under consideration. And in Communism the top of the Authority pyramid is occupied by the General Secretary, or the Chancellor, or the Fuhrer, or the President, etcetera, etcetera. Both share a common enemy which is given various names at various times in various contexts to whip up popular frenzy against this enemy. However, at root the enemy is simply the individual: he who either implicitly or explicitly believes himself to be a function of himself: to possess himself, and to be the sole vessel which carries the existential (or metaphysical) means and reasons to manifest himself upon his environment–that is, by himself, for himself, and to himself–and who ultimately believes that he alone does, and that he alone may rightly, OWN himself.
