Gary Gindler earned his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics at the Soviet Academy of Sciences, afterward engaged in the mathematics of wave propagation, the development of Russia’s internet infrastructure, as well as contributing to Soviet military technology. Dr. Gindler legally immigrating to the United States in 1995. Needless to say, Dr. Gindler possesses a superb analytical mind, now focused on the American political scene. Having first-hand experience with Totalitarian Marxist Socialism in the Soviet Union, he is very concerned about this economic, social, and political/legal pathology metastasizing here in the United States. Gindler recognizes the smell of a corpse.

Understanding the societal influence and power of language, rhetoric, and propaganda, Dr. Gindler explains in his book how modern political language has been corrupted to the point that it frequently conveys confusing and untruthful information. He points out that our Founding Fathers were the “Liberals” of their day, but in today’s America the Founder’s beliefs, values, and actions are considered “Conservative.” It should be pointed out that the word “Liberal” has morphed into the idea of changing and/or destroying core beliefs, values, and traditions, while the word “Conservative” has come to mean maintaining, i.e.: conserving, these essential and creative foundations as they have been passed down from our wise and experienced ancestors, at great expense and sacrifice. In this regard Dr. Gindler states that “conservatism is not against innovations – simply because its ultimate role is to guide them… conservatism prevents rocking society with dangerous ideas that could turn it over and lead to irreversible damage.” He also points us to the Russian philosopher, Nickolas Berdyaev:

    “The conservative principle itself per se is not opposed to development, it only demands that developmental growth be organic that the future does not destroy the past, but rather should continue to develop it… the [Conservative] state exists, not in order to transform the earthly life into paradise, but in order to hinder it ultimately from being transformed into a hell.”

Gindler also points out the Orwellian reversal of the political terms “Left” and “Right.” These linguistic designations originated during the French Revolution, originally with the “Left” on the side of revolutionary anti-Monarchy and the “Right” on the side of retaining the Monarchy. After the fall of French Monarchy, the terms became more muddled and nuanced with both sides of the political isle tending by degree toward Socialism. With a Communist Revolution in Russia, producing the Totalitarian Soviet Union, Joseph Stalin perpetuated the “Left-Right” confusion. As Gindler points out, Stalin considered his brand of Communism to be “Center” with small degrees of change either to the “Left” or “Right” of his totalitarian regime. Stalin began referring to a State controlled economy, i.e.: Fascism, as “Right;” Gindler points out that such an arrangement is akin to the Communist ownership of an economy. European leaders and governments eventually aggregated into the camps of Marxist/Communist Socialism, Fascist Socialism, or Democratic Socialism, but they apparently never gave a thought to the American system of government, and where we fit in to the political spectrum. Thus, when Europeans refer to Fascism as “Right” it is because their political spectrum begins and ends with Socialism of one degree or another. Although not in his book, the graph below illustrates Dr. Gindler’s Left-Right Individual-State Paradigm, integrating and contrasting the competing degrees of wealth, power, and freedom within societies. Government elites unjustly dominate We the People at the far Left; We the People justly dominate government elites at Center-Right, and anarchy ensues at the far Right with the disintegration of government – a highly unstable, chaotic, and violent state of affairs which allows Communists, Fascists, or Islamo-Fascists to take advantage.

Once Americanism is in the picture, i.e.: once the full spectrum of government power over the individual is visualized, including all forms of taxation and government debt, it becomes clear that all flavors of self-serving European Socialism are on the “Left,” including Fascism, and that the American “Center-Right” ideal represents a proper limitation of government power over the individual, resulting in maximum human wealth, power, and freedom – a badge of honor. As Gindler points out, the notion of “Right Wing Dictatorship” is an oxymoron; all Dictatorships are Left Wing. Dr. Gindler observes that “The Right insists that governments must be controlled; the Left dreams of the population to be controlled… The left-wing elites want war; the right-wing elites want peace. Thus, while the Right prepares for war, the Left prepares the GULAG for the Right.” Sadly, and ominously, the United States continues to drift significantly to the Left.

Dr. Gindler takes a deep dive into the opposing concepts of equality under Marxism vs. American equality. Marxism demands forceful and unnatural equality of social and economic results, i.e.: “equity,” requiring government-managed redistributive class struggle and unjust inequality before the law. Americanism aims for universal equality before the law, i.e.: American justice, leading to the abolition of class struggle with a natural inequality of social and economic results. In Orwellian fashion a Totalitarian Government is required to deliver equality of result, with a vastly superior (unequal) class of not-to-be-equalized government equalizers on top – the Marxist paradox.

    “It had always been assumed that if the Capitalist Class were expropriated Socialism must follow; and unquestionably the Capitalists had been expropriated. Factories, mines, land, houses, transport, everything had been taken away from them [forcing economic equality of result via government redistribution of property]; and since these things were no longer private property it followed that they must be public property. Ingsoc, which grew out of the earlier Socialist movement and inherited its phraseology, has in fact carried out the main item in the Socialist program with the result, foreseen and intended beforehand, that economic inequality has been made permanent.” George Orwell – 1984

Delving deeper, Dr. Gindler explores the relationship between human equality (equality of natural human rights and equality before the law) and human freedom, discerning that “they cannot be treated as independent variables in the political equation,” i.e.: human freedom is a function of human equality. In a sliding scale from Left to Right, the wrongful, unequal, superior freedom of an increasingly totalitarian elite geometrically reduces the wrongful, unequal, inferior freedom of those beneath. Gindler also describes the relationship between human freedom and property rights, pointing out that “an individual’s political freedom is determined by the aggregate economic power of people vs. the government…” The prime directive of Marx’s Communist Manifesto is “the abolition of private property.” Our righteous prime directive on the Conservative Right is the preservation of private property. Abraham Lincoln described this core principle of human liberty perfectly:

    "With some the word liberty may mean for each man to do as he pleases with himself, and the product of his labor [Free Enterprise]; while with others, the same word may mean for some men to do as they please with other men, and the product of other men's labor [Communism, Fascism, Islamo-Fascism, Monarchy, Slavery].”

I’ve highlighted several core aspects of Dr. Gindler’s book, but there is much more, including a meticulous deconstruction of the various permutations of Proletarian Marxism, and a discussion of Globalism which Gindler describes as “a trans-Marxist Trojan Horse for the project of global Collectivization. The Left Imperialism is a tool to implant a one-world collectivist government.” He also discusses the complex subject of Anarchy, the calculating leaders of which, behind the curtain, are actually or very close to Communists on the far Left. Communists either envision withering the state over a lengthy, evolutionary process, or they become overlords of anarchy seeking the overthrow of any existing freedom-oriented government immediately, through mass violence and chaos, followed of course by their real goal of Communist Dictatorship, which “comes to the rescue.” Thomas Hobbes recognized that man's lower human nature is selfish and prone to violence. He formulated the case for a powerful Monarch—or "Leviathan"—to enforce peace, law, and order, substituting security for the anarchic freedom he believed human beings would otherwise experience: “Life in the state of nature [in the absence of government] is solitary, poor, nasty, and short.” In today’s world the far Left Leviathan of Monarchy has been replaced by the far Left Leviathans of Communism, Fascism, and Islamo-Fascism, while the potential for anarchy on the far Right remains unchanged. The criminals and useful idiots, as storm troopers of anarchy, actually seek a complete absence of government, and paradoxically find themselves, heads spinning, as they are sucked by their political masters through a wormhole linking the terror of far Right anarchy to the terror of far Left totalitarianism. Thomas Hobbes and Karl Marx both erred in their promotion of far Left Monarchy and Communism; time has proven that the only path to a just society is that which our Founding Fathers discovered and established – the Center Right on Dr. Gindler’s Individual-State Paradigm.

This book is an important work, thoughtfully and analytically weaving together many currents of thought and experience from history, right to the present time. Dr. Gindler focuses on economic, social, political and moral issues as they relate to today’s state of affairs. Gindler doesn’t mince words; he comes down hard on the Socialist Left, explaining that tyranny and human suffering is always in its wake, and that to avoid such a fate we must quickly return to our own dynamic revolutionary roots. Despite the Left’s potentially bloody threat, Gindler remains optimistic: “Leftists are the ones who offer sporadic obstructions and put a spike on evolution’s wheel. However, they cannot stop the overriding trajectory of human social development: from low to a higher level of freedom.” I’m very happy and grateful that Dr. Gindler has immigrated to the United States, and that he has joined the ranks of American Patriots seeking to restore and defend our Sacred American Revolution of Life, Liberty, and Creative Pursuit of Happiness.
