Jeremy Corbyn – the apparent man of the hour during recent weeks, a man who has seemingly managed to split opinion in every walk of life, including his own party, and most importantly – across our nation.
As anyone who isn’t living beneath a political rock will have most likely seen, Jeremy Corbyn this weekend has snubbed the official Armed Forces Day parade in host city Liverpool in favour of giving a speech to thousands of the impressionable youth who have flocked to Glastonbury for a weekend of booze, mud and music. Now, as you may have guessed from the opening to this post, I am not pro-Corbyn in any way, shape or form.
There are reasons for this, the first being that I have no trust for Mr Corbyn. The things he says and the ideology that he attempts to push is something that unnerves me, and I am not saying that I trust politicians in the first place, it is just that Mr Corbyn has an aura around him that makes me think I’d have a cold shiver if he were to brush past me on the tube.
I also believe that his views and the ideas that he seems intent on thrusting onto our society are very close, if not identical to those of Karl Marx. Within a definition that I have found on the Business Dictionary website there is a sentence that reads:
“Under Marxism, outdated class structures were supposed to be overthrown with force (revolution) instead of being replaced through patient modification.”
This to me says that although he himself is not encouraging the use of force, a lot of the support that he has gained in recent weeks and months have begun this process of attempting their own warped revolution to overthrow the duly elected Tory government. I believe this gives us perfect reason to be wary of the threat that Jeremy Corbyn poses to what is at current, a somewhat peaceful society that has managed for the most part to succeed using democracy and the use of free speech – which I now believe is also being abused by certain factions of society to spread a vindictive and harmful view.
Although most of the current generations will not know what it is like to live within a Marxist environment – I think it is quite blatant that it does not work, all the evidence we need stems from countries such as North Korea, who have lived under a dictator for many generations, and a society which has poverty beyond what we can imagine.
Should people continue this ludicrous campaign to allow Mr Corbyn to create this damned society that he preaches of, then I see a hollowed existence on the horizon for our nation.
