Christ Was a Communist  Jan 12, 2006
What was special about the message was it the narcissism of redemption and salvation of the self, or was it the selflessness of living for the other? Primacy of the poor, the poor are special because they suffer the most, or were the abdication of ethical responsibility by salvation through grace? Jose` Miranda answers these questions.
An Important and Chilling Book  Jul 17, 2000
Fascinating book. Communism is an idea as old as the bible (older, actually, if you count the Mesopotamian variety, Native Americans, etc). But in the West, communism was a Christian movement. The early Christians and monks knew it, and later there was Thomas More's "Utopia," and soon the New World became peppered with experiments in Christian communism, like the "Bible Communists" of Oneida New York, with their commune dictator, Father Noyes. Wasn't Paraguay founded as a communist experiment by Jesuits? Socialism was, as the original socialists explained, "Nouveau Christianisme."

When Marx came along with his irreligious "scientific socialism," he extracted the basic kernel of the idea, but tried to offer a new, secular rationale for it. Basically, Marxism was a failed attempt to give a scientific facelift to an irrational, unscientiific, hare-brained religious idea.

It's a simple idea: everybody will share everything, or own everything, collectively somehow, as common property. Ownership being the exclusive right to control and dispose a thing, the very idea is inherently contradictory. If we all own it, we all control it, and there's nothing left but to fight over it. "Public property" is nobody's property, it's either neglected or abused, and usually both. (As Aristotle observed hundreds of years before Christ, "We observe much more quarreling among those who hold all things in common.")

What shall be done, and not done, with the common property? Somehow, a myriad of conflicting wills must yield to one, unified will. Enter the dictator. Or the apathetic bureaucracy. The problem with communes is they entail both tyranny and poverty, and so the inmates soon flee. Every voluntary commune faces this problem. That's why socialism needs the State, because a government is, by definition, that body in any society which enjoys a virtual monopoly on the initiation of force.

But the thing is, if you're a real Christian---a true believer---then the fact that communism entails grinding poverty and totalitarianism seems somehow beside the point. How can it behoove us to worry about our own selfish freedom and wealth, when we're supposed to be just waiting around for the Messiah's return, and spending our time studying the highest truth, which is the teachings of a man who said "sell all you have and give it to the poor," and "it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven"?

Miranda is a true believer all right: a chillingly pure and consistent Christian Communist----ready to marry the two evils of theocracy and socialism into a new and perfected totalitarian state.

After reading this book, you might clean your palate with something by the classical liberal Ludwig von Mises, the opposite of and antidote to Miranda.

This book is about Community, not Communism.  Feb 20, 1999
Communism has never been allowed. Miranda challenges all those who accept previously unquestioned beliefs and challenges people to think for themselves. We are being conned by popular religion, Miranda aks us to think again.
