A Review of “Capitalism and the Jews by Jerry Z. Muller, Part 3
(Occidental Observer) -- by Brenton Sanderson --
Radical Anti-capitalism – The Jew as Communist
Muller writes that it is ‘among the remarkable facts of modern European history that Jews were identified by others not only with capitalism, but with the most extreme form of anti-capitalism, namely Communism’ (p. 133). This fact would seem rather less remarkable if viewed through the lens of Kevin MacDonald’s theory of Judaism as a group evolutionary strategy – where Judaism emerged historically as a strategy to promote the economic welfare and reproductive success of Jews as a genetically distinct population. In Culture of Critique MacDonald examines a range of twentieth-century intellectual movements that had a decisive Jewish involvement, including the radical Left, and concludes that they share a common tacit agenda in promoting the group evolutionary interests of Jews – often at the expense of non-Jewish competitor groups. Radical Jews typically had a strong Jewish identity, continued to marry endogamously, and saw their actions as benefiting Jews as a group, at least up until the 1960s when the radical left became associated with anti-Zionism. Accordingly, political radicalism can be accurately regarded as a Jewish intellectual and political movement that is, in reality, a post-Enlightenment manifestation of Judaism as a group evolutionary strategy.
This certainly applied to Marxism, as historian Arnold Toynbee identified back in the 1930s:
The distinctively Jewish … inspiration of Marxism is the apocalyptic vision of a violent revolution which is inevitable because it is the decree … of God himself, and which is to invert the present roles of Proletariat and Dominant Minority in … a reversal of roles which is to carry the Chosen People, at one bound, from the lowest to the highest place in the Kingdom of This World. Marx has taken the Goddess ‘Historical Necessity’ in place of Yahweh for his omnipotent deity, and the internal proletariat of the modern Western World in place of Jewry; and his Messianic Kingdom is conceived as a Dictatorship of the Proletariat. But the salient features of the traditional Jewish apocalypse protrude through this threadbare disguise, and it is actually the pre-Rabbinical Maccabean Judaism that our philosopher-impresario is presenting in modern Western costume. (Toynbee, A. (1939) A Study of History – Vol. II, Oxford University Press, London, p. 178....Muller’s description of the massively disproportionate role of Jews in communist movements of the twentieth century is a somewhat apologetic account, but it certainly agrees with Jewish historian Norman Cantor’s observation that ‘In the first half of the twentieth century, Marxist-Leninist communism ran like an electromagnetic lightning flash through Jewish societies from Moscow to Western Europe, the United States and Canada, gaining the lifelong adherence of brilliant, passionately dedicated Jewish men and women’ (The Sacred Chain, p. 281). However, despite having offered a detailed account of the far-reaching nature of Jewish involvement in various brutal Communist regimes throughout the twentieth century, Muller then incongruously declares that the identification of the Jew as Communist is a ‘myth’...
This is a spurious argument. In the USSR, the vast majority of Jews supported the communist regime, and indeed, the Jewish community was a pillar of support for the USSR throughout its history, particular in the period up to the end of WWII (see, for example, Yuri Slezkine’s The Jewish Century). The Jewish community also was staunchly supportive of Communist regimes throughout Eastern Europe after WWII (e.g., in Poland; see here, p. ff60). In the West, many Jewish communists continued to identify as Jews, and sympathy with communism was an entirely mainstream component of the support of the radical left that typified the Jewish community from the 1920s through the 1950s...
In agreement with other historians, Muller notes that after the Bolshevik Revolution, Jews quickly moved into ‘important and especially sensitive positions in the bureaucracy and administration of the new regime,’ and, as a result, the first encounter with the new regime for many Russians ‘was likely to be with a commissar, tax officer, or secret police official of Jewish origin.’ This rapid movement of Jews into the economic, cultural, and political fields throughout the 1920s reached its peak in the mid-1930s. ‘The last Jewish member appointed to the Politburo,’ Muller notes, ‘was Lazar Kaganovich, who later presided over the politically motivated famine that took the lives of millions of Ukrainian peasants.’...MORE...LINK
Bakunin on Marx and Rothschild
“Himself a Jew, Marx has around him, in London and France, but especially in Germany, a multitude of more or less clever, intriguing, mobile, speculating Jews, such as Jews are every where: commercial or banking agents, writers, politicians, correspondents for newspapers of all shades, with one foot in the bank, the other in the socialist movement, and with their behinds sitting on the German daily press — they have taken possession of all the newspapers — and you can imagine what kind of sickening literature they produce. Now, this entire Jewish world, which forms a single profiteering sect, a people of blooksuckers, a single gluttonnous parasite, closely and intimately united not only across national borders but across all differences of political opinion — this Jewish world today stands for the most part at the disposal of Marx and at the same time at the disposal of Rothschild. I am certain that Rothschild for his part greatly values the merits of Marx, and that Marx for his part feels instinctive attraction and great respect for Rothschild.
This may seem strange. What can there be in common between Communism and the large banks? Oh! The Communism of Marx seeks enormous centralization in the state, and where such exists, there must inevitably be a central state bank, and where such a bank exists, the parasitic Jewish nation, which. speculates on the work of the people, will always find a way to prevail ....”
