Joshua Muravchik’s definitive history Heaven on Earth was originally published in 2002 with the subtitle “The Rise and Fall of Socialism.” In order to stay definitive, it is now being updated and rereleased, with a third act added on to the historical drama of socialism in the form of its 21st century “Afterlife.”

Socialism, Muravchik writes, “was the faith in which I was raised.” And while he doesn’t belabor the personal, his status as an apostate from a long period as an involved socialist lends the entire project a bit of authority and a lot of fluency.

      When Socialism can not deliver; then Satanic- Bolshevism takes the upper hand and genocide the people as they have done before.

      About Communism; Fascism; State-ism; all Religions except Archetypes that they find is real; their religion building blocks.
      Because it is just tools in their toolbox; a technique; the means of control; you can not trace it down seamlessly; because there exists no such of a thing.
