FORWARD. That sounds benign and vaguely positive, much like "progressive" does, right?
- Neither term is anything of the sort, they are hallmark terms of a political philosophy that ruined entire nations and killed well over 100 million people in the 20th century alone, and has the potential to be even more ruinous and deadly in this century.
FORWARD wasn't just Obama's campaign slogan, but it is a term that has long and deep ties to Marxism.
FORWARD carries a special meaning to socialists and Marxists, reflecting their radical belief that they were the "march of history" moving forward past capitalism into socialism and toward communism.
FORWARD was a generic name used by 19th and 20th century socialist publications. Lenin founded a publication in 1905 "Vpered" [forward in Russian], and Engels, Trotsky, Marx and others used the term for their publications as well.
Today America has a Marxist leading the country, and is poised to elect yet another Marxist in 2016. The "march of stupidity" continues to move FORWARD undeterred despite over a century of proven failure.
