Malcolm Muggeridge: From Communism to Christianity

henrymakow.com — Sept 22, 2017

Malcolm Muggeridge (1903-1990) was an English writer who could see the coming NWO in the rejection of Christianity. He realized the alternative to religion is not “freedom” but satanism, decadence and chaos.
“Muggeridge realized the extent to which liberalism was destroying European civilization. Liberalism consummated itself in totalitarianism– it was in fact the precursor of totalitarianism.”

Malcolm Muggeridge was uncompromising in his quest for the truth– both from a moral and intellectual point of view. Even as he fought against his own selfishness and unbridled passions, he engaged in an intellectual struggle in the pursuit of truth.
Totally imbued with the ideas of socialism in the early thirties, he embraced communism. Upon arriving in Moscow in 1932 as a correspondent for the Manchester Guardian, he was convinced he had come to a land where for the first time in human history there was no exploitation, a country in which equality, justice, and happiness flourished.
He was very soon disabused of this fiction. He had placed his belief in a utopia. He discovered that everything in the USSR was built on violence and lies. “In the beginning was the Lie and the Lie was made news and dwelt among us, graceless and false,” he wrote.
Muggeridge came to the personal knowledge that communist ideology, when put into practice in the form of “real socialism,” revealed her true barbaric face: an appalling horror of totalitarian enslavement and genocide. He witnessed the Great Famine in Ukraine, which killed tens of millions of people. The famine had been coldly planned and brutally executed by Stalin to punish the Ukrainian peasantry for their resistance to enforced collectivization.
Meanwhile, the European elites continued to rhapsodize over the Soviet Union. A great many journalists, writers, and intellectuals, succumbing to political correctness and sheer opportunism, chose to deny the facts and wrote idyllic falsehoods about the situation in the communist “paradise.” Muggeridge described this phenomenon of blindness, stupidity, and intellectual dishonesty (he characterized these as “a peculiar sin of the twentieth century”) in his novel Winter in Moscow (1935), He was one of the few journalists who had the courage to tell the truth [and identify the Jewish character of Communism- hm]. He was the first to inform public opinion of the appalling crime of the Ukrainian famine. He dispatched his articles to the Manchester Guardian by concealing them in diplomatic pouches to prevent their seizure by communist agents…
Muggeridge felt a great longing to entrust his life, wholly and unconditionally, to Christ, who was all-powerful in His love and yet did not resort to means of coercion. He came to realize the catastrophic consequences of rejecting Christ and His teachings, for then man became unhinged and descended to levels lower than the beasts. Muggeridge felt a deep desire to become a Christian.
He wrote: “For me the Christian religion is like a desperate love. I carry its image within me and gaze at it from time to time with wistful longing.”
