“We must war against all prevailing ideas of religion, of the state, of country, of patriotism. The idea of God is the keynote of a perverted civilization. It must be destroyed.”
“I wish to avenge myself against the One who rules above.”
“I shall build myself a throne high overhead, Cold and tremendous shall its summit be. For its bulwark – unimaginable horror. For its marshal - bleakest agony.
He who looks on it with a healthy eye, Shall turn aback, deathly pale and numb, Clutched by blind and cold mortality, May his happiness prepare his tomb”
(Marx in his poem “Invocation of One in Despair”)
“Yet you, personified humanity shall be clenched by my youthful arms, They grab you with tempestuous force, While for us both the abyss awaits with eternal darkness. You will sink down and I shall follow down laughing, Whispering in your ears, “Descend! Come with me, comrade!”
(Marx in his drama “Oulanem” - O Emanuel with mixed up letters – the rearranging of holy names is a common practice of satanists)
I teach words that are all mixed up into a devilish muddle. Thus, anyone may just think whatever he wants.
(Marx in “On Hegel”)
“The Communists despise making a secret of their opinions and intentions. They openly declare that their aims can be reached only through the violent overthrow of the entire existing social structure.”
(Marx and Engels in “Manifesto of the Communist Party” - This book is sometimes called “Communist Manifesto” but “Manifesto of the Communist Party” was the actual title.)
“There is only one method to shorten the murderous pains of death of the old society, the bloody birth pangs of the new society; only one method to simplify and concentrate them, that is revolutionary terrorism.”
Karl Marx in his article, The Victory of the Counter-Revolution in Vienna, Neue Rheinische Zeitung, No. 136, 7 November 1848.
“Torture alone has given rise to the most ingenious mechanical inventions and employed many honorable craftsmen in the production of the instruments.” (Marx, Economic Manuscripts of 1861 )
“The next world war will make whole reactionary peoples disappear from the face of the earth. This, too, is progress. Obviously this cannot be fulfilled without crushing some delicate national flower. But without violence and without pitilessness nothing can be obtained in history” (Engels)
“We have nothing to do any more with indifference or coldness toward the Lord. No, it is an open, declared enmity, and in the place of all sects and parties we have now only two: Christians and anti-Christians…. We see the false prophets among us…. They travel throughout Germany and wish to intrude everywhere; they teach their Satanic teachings in the market-places and bear the flag of the Devil from one town to another, seducing the poor youth, in order to throw them in the deepest abyss of hell and death.”
(Engels in “Schelling, Philosopher in Christ”)
„One tenth gets personal liberty аnd unlimited rights over the other nine tenths. These must lose their personality and turn into a kind of herd. They will engage in spy work. Each member of society will spy on the other and will be obliged to denounce…. All are slaves аnd are equal in slavery.“ „Our cause is terrible, complete, universal, and pitiless destruction…. Let us unite with the savage, criminal world, these true and only revolutionists of Russia.“
(Sergey Nechayev – together with Marx one of the founders of the first Communist International)
In the Bible it says:
„Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads.” (Revelations)
Obviously this red dragon isn't meant to be taken literally, but symbolically. So what does it stand for? The Bible explains it itself.
“The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast. They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast. They will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.”
This is the point where it became clear to me that this “red dragon” might be a symbol for Communism and it's “ten horns” who as is revealed are symbols for kings without a proper kingdom might be Communist rulers. I know it sounds like a long stretch, but it starts to become more plausible if you view it in this way and read on.
“And the dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the water. [It is explained later on that the water symbolizes 'peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues'] It [the beast] had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on his horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion.” Since the water symbolizes peoples and nations and the ten horns symbolize improper rulers and if we view the red dragon as a symbol for Communism we might decipher this scene as symbolizing those rulers coming to power using the promise of Communism to get the population of different nations to follow them. So what could the beast resemble then? Maybe it resembles the new Communist country those rulers created. So what country could that be? And it would have to at least kind of resemble a leopard. Well take out an old globe and look at the shape of the Soviet Union. Sounds like a long shot? Read on: “The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority. One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed.” So if the “beast” refers to the Soviet Union being shaped like a beast (a leopard) what would a fatal wound that had healed refer to? Maybe the collapse of the Soviet Union. It looked like a fatal blow to socialism, yet socialism has survived. There are still many socialist countries left (with China alone making up quite a big part of the world's population) and even in countries that are no longer socialist, many people continue to believe in Socialism and Communism. I will make less comments now as I think that once one accepts the possibility of it having this symbolism, the rest of Revelations makes sense. “The whole world was astonished and followed the beast. People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, 'Who is like the beast? Who can make war against him?' The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months. He opened his mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world. He that leadeth into captivity will himself go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword will himself be killed by the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. Then I saw another beast, coming out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb, but spoke like a dragon. He exercised all the authority of the first beast on his behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men. Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. He ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number.“
So the followers of the red dragon wear a mark on their foreheads that symbolizes a beast as well as a man. The only symbol like that which I know of is a Pentagram or in other words, a five pointed star. Satanists use it -among others- but they don't usually wear it on their foreheads. The only people I know who openly and collectively wear it on their foreheads are Communists. (The five pointed red star is is on the front of the cap or helmet of all communist uniforms, effectively placing it on the forehead of the person donning it). Also during times when socialism was or is enforced, it's true that it is impossible to buy or sell things without the sign (without being a Communist) since in socialism all goods are sate owned.
Closer to the end of Revelations it reads:
“Then I saw three evil spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty. 'Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed.'”
