MIT Press Publishes Children’s Book Titled “Communism for Kids”

Once again, academia proves itself to be a hotbed of delusional communists, who seek to warp the minds of the young with propaganda.

MIT Press, a publisher affiliated with the world renown Massachusetts Institute of Technology, recently published a children’s book titled “Communism for Kids.” Its content is every bit as asinine as the title suggests. According to the book’s description:

“…This little book proposes a different kind of communism, one that is true to its ideals and free from authoritarianism. 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.”

Considering that the far-left consists of a bunch of unimaginative joykills, it’s not surprising that the book isn’t very good, as the many one star reviews on Amazon can attest. One reviewer stated, “Essentially the book is summarized thusly: The world is terrible because a bunch of entrepreneurs invented things like television, cars and nice homes. Because of scarcity, not everyone can have those things. Therefore, those things are evil and pursuing them is capitalist brainwashing. Another reviewer wrote “Will sell like hotcakes in Venezuela. They need toilet paper.”

Though the description claims that this book is “perfect for all ages,” it’s not even a very good children’s book. It’s apparently riddled with with academic jargon and references to political movements that no child would understand.

What’s most surprising, is not that a book with this subject matter would be published, but that it was published by MIT press. MIT produces some of the most brilliant graduates in the world, who go on to make countless contributions to the global marketplace through inventions, research, and startups. It’s an engine of entrepreneurship. It’s estimated that if all the companies that were started by MIT graduates were one country, it would be the 17th largest economy in the world. I guess no school is safe from the blathering madness of leftist academics.

    I guess Mousy Dung’s “Little Red Book” wasn’t good enough for them. If you’re going to tell the truth about communism you might want to mention all the poverty, death, destruction, and wholesale human rights violations that come with communism as a package deal but I’m sure none of that makes its way into the book. First Stanford, now MIT…American higher education has been thoroughly and possibly irretrievably corrupted by the shitlibs.

      We are conditioned from childhood to believe that capitalism is a mutually beneficial relationship. While the capitalists may tell us that we are “Free”, if they keep all of the money from the arrangement that makes us their slaves.

      • Phil_Ossifer

        As opposed to the communists who keep all the money from the arrangement that makes slaves out of the workers. Nothing is perfect but capitalism is demonstrably better than communism in the real world. You can make anything look good on paper.

        • Steve Rusk

          The slave argues that his master is better? Slavery is slavery no matter the master. I’m curious, what do the commie masters do with all of their money? Do they also buy multi billion dollar yachts and private jets?

          • Phil_Ossifer

            Under communism, at least in theory, the elites are supposed to live exactly the same as the peasants. This is never the case in communist countries, never has been and never will be. The commie elites always live much better than the peasants. They just keep up the fiction that the “state” owns the fruits of the peoples’ labor and they (elites) are simply serving the state when, in reality, they are just serving themselves. All debates about governmental and economic systems ultimately devolve to “my master is better than your master” since, for all practical purposes, we are all slaves to some degree or other. That’s reality. It sucks, but it is what it is.

          • Steve Rusk

            I see, the excesses of communism are lesser to those of the capitalists so apparently that makes it an inferior political philosophy? You say they use the illusion of equality pretty much like the capitalists use the illusion of freedom on us? It really doesn’t matter if other governments take better care of their citizens? It’s better to be an American slave where the capitalists just ship our jobs off to commie countries so their economies improve and their citizens live better while we get bigger lies, austerity and our leaders become the richest people on the planet?

            What really sucks is that there are people who can recognize to some degree the degraded political circumstances they live in, yet still choose to support the degenerates who create those conditions.

    • Laurence Almand

      Every college student should spend at least a year in a Socialist state like Venezuela or China to see what Communism is really like. It would be an eye-opener for them.

  • Stew E

    How is it these nut cases have been allowed to obtain a position which has them publishing anything, much less children’s books for schools. Thes scum should have their citizenship revoked and kicked the hell out of America. Maybe they forgot what the world was like during the Cold War. They should go speak to the German people about the horrors of communism, better dead than red!

    I like how the TR headline says “Not Satire:”

  • The sad part is that I had a fervent desire to get into MIT. My guidance counselor even told me that I was MIT material, and had the potential of getting in, where I would double major in Computer Science and Mathematics, or Physics and Mathematics. I would obsess constantly about getting in to where I would get rampant anxiety attacks about my grades.

    Luckily I snapped out of it and made the decision to purely subscribe to autodidactism, since all of their material could be found online, and it is much easier to buy those textbooks and teach myself everything. Plus I may enroll in Harvard Extension School and try to get a few certificates from Harvard, or even a BSc if I feel motivated enough. Probably not.

    • Phil_Ossifer

      Interesting…I wanted to go there, too, but family circumstances made that impossible. This was back in the day when MIT wouldn’t have ever dreamed of doing the kind of thing the article reports. Now, almost fifty years later the SJWs have ruined what was once a fine institution. Goddamn shitlibs ruin everything they touch.

      • Them and the government providing easy loans, creating an artificial price ceiling that allows colleges to raise prices indefinitely.

        • Phil_Ossifer

          You got-um that right, Kemosabe. Stop government guarantees of student loans and watch tuitions plummet overnight.

      Autodidactism is better, anyway.

      It allows you to bypass the credential-obsessed and go straight for the merits.

      • Exactly! Plus, the public indoctrination system didn’t kill my love for learning, so I believe I have a lot more to gain from studying on my own. 🙂

        • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

          Part of learning is enjoyment.

          It’s exceedingly difficult to learn about something that you dislike, or in a way that makes learning unenjoyable.

          The word “school,” comes from the Greek word “scholé,” meaning “leisure.”
          The Ancient Greeks believed that learning was a leisure-time activity – something that one did after the day’s work was done, or, if one was wealthy enough to have basically nothing but leisure time.

          (fellow autodidact here, by the way)

          • Exactly! Our education system and country would be much more world-renowned if we taught to enjoy learning instead of hating it! 🙂

  • Ingmar Blessing

    I had a bit of a hunch.. and the search for this Bini Adamczak got me confirmed: She’s German and the book has been published in German before and since that chick is part of the communist Leftist party it means: That book has been sponsored by me, the German tax payer.

    You’re welcome, America.

    “Essentially the book is summarized thusly: The world is terrible because a bunch of entrepreneurs invented things like television, cars and nice homes. Because of scarcity, not everyone can have those things. Therefore, those things are evil and pursuing them is capitalist brainwashing.”

    What a bunch of total bull. There is no scarcity of those things under capitalism. But in Communist Russia (The USSR) even bread was scarce on grocery shelves and people stood in line for hours to get what they could. Whoever wrote this has no idea what communism really is !!!

    • Phil_Ossifer

      Commies still cling to the discredited idea that large economies can be centrally planned and controlled. History shows that this has never been successful but there’s always a new generation of cement-headed kids who believe, “Well, it didn’t work because WE weren’t in charge!” Never mind that every previous generation said the same thing…and got the same results.

      • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

        Communism and Socialism always fail because of improper implementation. . . or so each new generation of dimglows believes.

        “We’ll get it right, this time!”

  • Does it end with “and they lived happily ever after, at least until they ran out of other peoples money.”..?

  • Laurence Almand

    Read the excellent books BRAINWASHED and THE LANGAUGE POLICE to learn how our “educational” institutions are programming students to the Socialist agenda, raising them to be passive servants of the Government/Corporate Axis.
