MIT Press Publishes ‘Communism for Kids’ Book

56

American academia is actively working for the destruction of American freedoms. This open pushing of an ideology that has been responsible for untold millions of deaths is nothing short of obscene. And make no mistake: would MIT Press ever publish a book opposing jihad terror? They’d sooner take the gaspipe.

“MIT Press Publishes ‘Communism for Kids’ Book,” by Elizabeth Harrington, Washington Free Beacon, April 10, 2017:

MIT Press is out with a new book that teaches children the tenets of Karl Marx with fairy tales.

Communism for Kids, written by a German author who specializes in political theory and “queer politics,” was released last month. The thesis of the children’s book is that communism is “not that hard,” but has not been implemented in the right way.

“Once upon a time, people yearned to be free of the misery of capitalism. How could their dreams come true?” a plot synopsis for the book reads. “This little book proposes a different kind of communism, one that is true to its ideals and free from authoritarianism.”

The book is full of cartoon drawings of “lovable little revolutionaries” that help navigate kids through the “evils” of capitalism.

“Offering relief for many who have been numbed by Marxist exegesis and given headaches by the earnest pompousness of socialist politics, it presents political theory in the simple terms of a children’s story, accompanied by illustrations of lovable little revolutionaries experiencing their political awakening,” MIT Press states.

“It all unfolds like a story, with jealous princesses, fancy swords, displaced peasants, mean bosses, and tired workers—not to mention a Ouija board, a talking chair, and a big pot called ‘the state,'” the plot description continues.

“Before they know it, readers are learning about the economic history of feudalism, class struggles in capitalism, different ideas of communism, and more,” MIT Press notes.

The book lays out various approaches to communism, all of which fail. However, Communism for Kids ends with the message that class warfare could still lead to a “better world.”

“Finally, competition between two factories leads to a crisis that the workers attempt to solve in six different ways (most of them borrowed from historic models of communist or socialist change),” the description states. “Each attempt fails, since true communism is not so easy after all. But it’s also not that hard.”

“At last, the people take everything into their own hands and decide for themselves how to continue,” MIT Press concludes. “Happy ending? Only the future will tell. With an epilogue that goes deeper into the theoretical issues behind the story, this book is perfect for all ages and all who desire a better world.”

The book is selling for $12.95.

MIT Press translated the book from German author Bini Adamczak, a “social theorist and artist” who writes on “political theory, queer politics, and the past future of revolutions.” MIT Press did not immediately return request for comment on why it chose to publish the book.

MIT Press says its list of published books is “based in science and technology,” and it works to publish “significant works by pioneering international authors.”

The book has received rave reviews from Rachel Kushner, a novelist who uses revolutionary themes and “scares male critics,” according to Salon.com. Kushner says the book is especially needed now, since Donald Trump won the presidency.

“Communism for Kids, by Bini Adamczak, is in fact for everyone, an inspired and necessary book especially now, a moment when people feel that we are on the verge of the destruction of the world, and without any new world to hope for, or believe in,” Kushner says. “Have two hundred years of capitalism brought us freedom? Or just more inequality than has ever been experienced by humans on earth?”

“Global capitalism is not human destiny, it merely is,” Kushner adds. “To think beyond it, with the help of Adamczak’s primer, is to take a first step toward freedom, at least the freedom to imagine other worlds.”

Fredric R. Jameson, a professor of romance studies at Duke University who has “done more than any contemporary intellectual to rethink and renew the tradition of Marxist cultural theory,” also praised the book as great for kids.

“This delightful little book may be helpful in showing youngsters there are other forms of life and living than the one we currently ‘enjoy’; and even some adults might learn from it as well,” Jameson says. “At a time when our younger generations are not only dissatisfied but active enough to have some new thoughts of their own and to look around seriously for alternatives, political pedagogy has a real function and might well, as here, be reinvented in new ways.”

Chapter titles for the 101-page book include: “What is communism?” “What is capitalism?” “How did capitalism arise?” “What is work?” “What is the market?” “What is crisis?” and “What is to be done?”

The epilogue is entitled “Communist desire.”

The book is currently the number one new release in the “Communism and Socialism” category on Amazon.

Some reviewers have pointed out the book’s poor writing, while others say it “makes marxism cool again!”…

Communist regimes have killed approximately 100 million people over the past century.

  • “Communist regimes have killed approximately 100 million people over the past century,” should be in bold print in the title of the book.

    • Liatris Spicata

      I think your figure is too low. Just going from memory, up to 100 million in Mao’s China alone. Then 30-60 million in the Soviet Union. And don’t forget the murderous Pol Pot- maybe a chump at three million, but proportionately he probably took the cake.

    • RedMeatState

      ;Closer to 200m. Time wise they’ve got islam beat by 1300 years!

  • notsunkyet

    What the heck is the cover art supposed to be? It looks like they are destroying something. That would be a valid representation of communism for sure. The writing is awful and really makes no sense, which again, is a good representation of communism.

    Ouija boards, again, for those who don’t believe in God how is it that they resort to a board game predicated on a spiritual world of spirits that will magically move a token to answer your deepest questions.

    Give me a break MIT, you have really hit rock bottom and left all reason and intelligence behind and have targeted children, how deplorable.

    • Craig

      They are on their knees to the government monster to get those government funds.

    • sodacrackers2

      That is capitalism they are destroying.

  • satcatchet

    This is why people with brains home school their children. MIT please, you were once a great tech school.

    • Liatris Spicata

      When Larry Summers spoke at MIT about how women in academe were sidetracked by family obligations and were therefore disadvantaged with respect to their male colleagues, one woman academic in the audience said she felt she wanted to throw up. I think she walked out of Summers’ presentation- aah, the life of the mind.

      I understand this woman gained tenure after threatening to litigate. Nevertheless, I believe MIT remains a great tech school

      • Richard

        I worked with and MIT grad. She couldn’t find her ass in the dark with both hands.

  • Liatris Spicata

    I cannot wait for the sequel about about Islam!

    Then, maybe for the adult market, the joys of sex slavery?

    • HaplessChild

      “Little Janie Has Her Clitoris Mutilated”.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    The best cure for communism in children is give them an allowance, then make them give a significant percentage of it as a donation to some social or political organization. Discuss what they are getting for their “taxes”. There is nothing like individual assets and success to destroy socialism.

    • RedMeatState

      and when they protest you tie them up and throw them in the closet for a week without food or drink. and shoot their dog and their friends.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Actually threatening to send Santa to jail and shoot the easter bunny works quite well.

    • Loretta Battaglia

      Excellent

    • Duchess of Pork

      And the best cure for communism in university is to award all liberal arts students a C to indicate all are equal.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Excellent idea.

  • I prefer when Americans shot Communists in the face, not elected them to the White House and Congress under the banner of “Hope & Change.”

  • Tim

    Communism never worked ANYWHERE it’s been implemented, but idiotic liberals won’t stop trying.

    • Craig

      It is about power, control and money.

    • RedMeatState

      isn’t that the definition of Insanity? To keep trying the same thing over and over expecting a different result?

      • Loretta Battaglia

        Agreed

    • az

      Glorious leftard comrade will say “But, but, China!”, but he’s a moron who doesn’t realize that’s just a dictatorship with market capitalism.

  • balafama

    no man made system can be perfect simply because we are humans . an imperfect tree cant bear perfect fruits. no amount of obfuscation,manipulation,reformation,reinvention etc etc can perfect any man made ideology .a recognition of this fact will avoid the tragedy that always occurs in socialist,communist garbage revolutions.
    the presumption that we can all be equal is a fallacy .take communist north koreafor instance, fat kimmy is the only obese buffoon in that country ,the rest of his cabinet look like pruned twigs .he feeds fat while his country starves, party members get the meager goodies.
    stalin lived in a palace while millions of his citizens starved and died in abominable gulags. stalin kept murdering his party elite in the well known ritual purges supposed to keep communism perfect. that is the deception of communism.
    these evil folks want to introduce it again because they love control and authoritarianism.

    • Craig

      Same reason they must disarm the U.S. in order to carry out their socialist/communist plans.

    • RedMeatState

      sounds like Mao, Castro, Ortega, Chavez, Pol Pot, Lenin, Stalin, Ceaucescu and Hillary.

      • Speak the Truth

        What about Idi Amin?

        • RedMeatState

          Or Barack Obama

        • RedMeatState

          sure, throw him in there. you get the point. Heck, include Julius Caesar and Herod the Elder for all I care.

  • Mrs. Chief

    How about a children’s book titled “Venezuela For Kids”!

    • notsunkyet

      Make sure to have a chapter on how to catch and prepare a dog.

      • Mrs. Chief

        And don’t forget the chapter on how the police and government officials are stealing all the food and supplies and passing them out to their family members first.

  • AlgorithmicAnalyst

    Another case of “Advanced Stupid”.

  • brock marks

    where is the chapter on communism and socialism’s repeat failures? i would approve a book like that

  • Ari

    Indeed. After August 1991 when the Soviet Union collapsed, the communists abandoned their ideology and many Communist parties even ceased to exist.

    EU Foreign-Policy and Security Chief Federica Mogherini is an ex-communist, who seems to be a useful idiot to muslims.

      Oh hell no!

  • IzzatSo

    Once upon a time, some men named Stalin, Hitler and Chairman Mao started socialist revolutions and then they all lived happily ever in peace and freedom and no global warming or MAGA. The end.

  • How about “Nazism for Kids”?

    • MZTYPLCK

      How about Islam For Kids?

  • az

    The thing is, communism is made by and for kids :D
    Made by two guys who never got to see their theories tested in the real world, like every good scientific experiment.
    Marx and Engels bashed capitalism and then said they had the perfect solution, without giving it any testing.
    Sounds familiar with today leftards. Lots of ideas and solutions that when put to practice, don’t ever work.

    Like Islam in school, this is just indoctrination in hate, snake oil and alike, to increase the far left voters spectrum and democratically have communism/Islam everywhere.

  • shirley versace

    lol – Whiskey tango foxtrot?? Is this MIT… as in Massachusetts Institute of Technology? …. They actually want to be associated with an ideology that is worse and more murderous than Nazism? what a joke. So they are a bunch of Commies? Whatever next…

  • Evil Otto

    The book should be subtitled “Don’t Worry, THIS Time We’ll Get It Right.” And the first chapter would be how this time it won’t result in a hundred+ million corpses. Really.

    • santashandler

      Oh, only 200M?

  • MZTYPLCK

    Chapter One: How to starve 20,000,000 of your own people!
    Chapter Two: Fun with Chemical Weapons
    Chapter Three: Eliminating your Political Opponents
    Chapter Four: Mass Enslavement is Not that Hard
    etc
    etc

  • This is not surprising because MIT is an active partner in Tavistock Institute’s sinister mass social engineering project of indoctrination. The essential question is WHY the left is promoting communist values. The left-wing liberal agenda seeks to destroy the socio-political capitalist infrastructure of America and transform it into a dependent socialist state with cradle to grave control by the government. Their strategy is to destroy the traditional American institutions of family and religion that promote independence, adulthood, individualism, and ego strength – the same qualities that made America great. The entire narrative of the Left is designed to induce regression through educational indoctrination and the media – as Hillary Clinton famously remarked they need “an unaware compliant public.” Unaware and compliant are the hallmarks of childhood. The pitch might sound good to a childish mind who is seduced by candy from a stranger but the adult mind understands the sinister end-game. Once the public is entirely dependent on the government they lose all individual rights and national sovereignty as the socialized state becomes part of the internationalized one-world government. The left-wing liberal lemmings are the useful idiots who are too arrogant to understand that they are participating in their own destruction. They have been indoctrinated to believe they are fighting for “social justice” when in fact they are helping to establish the dystopian nightmare of one-world government where there is no middle class, no upward mobility, no national sovereignty, and no individual freedoms. There is only the ruling elite and the enslaved population who service them. The left-wing liberal lemmings should take a break from marching and “resisting” and start reading Bertrand Russell’s The Impact of Science on Society written in 1952. They will learn that their script was written 65 years ago by the globalist elites who dreamed of one-world government – a binary socio-political system of masters and slaves. The globalist’s New World Order was their self-serving answer to the Malthusian problem of the earth not having enough resources to sustain the population growth. Tavistock Institute was exported to America with the purpose of indoctrinating Americans via education and the media – particularly television – the greatest vehicle for mass social engineering ever invented. The Hollywood glitterati and the protesting hoards should take a pause and understand there is no place for them in the New World Order – they are simply useful idiots who will be destroyed. The aristocratic Lord Bertrand Russell and the late David Rockefeller had no moral problem with eliminating the useless eaters any more than Hitler with exterminating Jews, Islamists with exterminating infidels, or the Chinese Emperors with burying their concubines alive to service them in the afterlife. The point is elitism is supremacist – there is no egalitarian respect for human life only the pretense of humanitarian considerations. The Left and the Islamists have common cause in trying to destroy America from within – but it is the globalist elites who finance and disingenuously facilitate both groups because the social chaos they each engender is a prerequisite for imposing globalist one-world government. For the globalist elite the Left and the Islamists are BOTH useful idiots.

  • BostonLiberty

    Yep, just like the queer nation socialists running Hitler’s Nazi party, they are still at it. Death to capitalism, death to individualism, death to freedom. Kill or enslave the opposition and rape anything with a hole. Disgusting.

  • Lancelot Blackeburne

    Tell the kids about “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need…”

    School age kids will immediately grasp how quickly that society will fall apart when the first incompetent, lazy, greedy person comes along.

  • Lukas Lumbantobing

    This book should be banned ASAP in my country if anybody have a gall to translate it to Indonesian language and publish it here in Indonesia.

  • Steve

    The kids need to be told of a free app they can download about communism – “animal farm”.

  • Orlin Pettit
  • Lukas Lumbantobing

    Not mean to defend the New Order regime in Indonesia, but a maxim from that era were actually true then and now; Beware of the latent danger of communism! (“Awas bahaya laten komunis” in Indonesian language).
