Do leftists believe that "nirvana" can be achieved through government regulation and control?

The great difference between our western Christian world and the atheistic Communist world is not political, gentlemen, it is moral. For instance, the Marxian idea of confiscating the land and factories and running the entire economy as a single enterprise is momentous. Likewise, Lenin’s invention of the one-party police state as a way to make Marx’s idea work is hardly less momentous.
Stalin’s resolute putting across of these two ideas, of course, did much to divide the world. With only these differences, however, the east and the west could most certainly still live in peace.
The real, basic difference, however, lies in the religion of immoralism . . . invented by Marx, preached feverishly by Lenin, and carried to unimaginable extremes by Stalin. This religion of immoralism, if the Red half of the world triumphs—and well it may, gentlemen—this religion of immoralism will more deeply wound and damage mankind than any conceivable economic or political system.
Karl Marx dismissed God as a hoax, and Lenin and Stalin have added in clear-cut, unmistakable language their resolve that no nation, no people who believe in a god, can exist side by side with their communistic state.
Karl Marx, for example, expelled people from his Communist Party for mentioning such things as love, justice, humanity or morality. He called this “soulful ravings” and “sloppy sentimentality.” . . .
Today we are engaged in a final, all-out battle between communistic atheism and Christianity. The modern champions of communism have selected this as the time, and ladies and gentlemen, the chips are down—they are truly down.

Yes, as long as they're the government, and they're the ones doing the regulating and controlling.
Where conservatives view government as a distasteful and necessary evil to be limited and watched with suspicion Liberals and leftists view government as the vehicle to control, manipulate, and ultimately defeat free thought and ideas. Take a look at any "leftist" country in the world and you will see government right in the middle of it pulling all the strings, and making life miserable where and when it can.

Its basically the thinking they learned from college professors that are brainwashing these students into thinking that this kind of thing is good for the government to do.
Only to an extent, is it ok. When taken too far, it becomes oppression.

Appears that they believe government is the highest power in the universe.

For some 'Nirvana' is achieved by posting stupid, slanted questions. Have YOU reached Nirvana yet?

No, we each create our life. I know that if we have rich people we can afford to help those that work so hard & struggle so much in life.
