"The worker becomes all the poorer the more wealth he produces, the more his production increases in power and range. The worker becomes an ever cheaper commodity the more commodities he creates. With the increasing value of the world of things proceeds in direct proportion to the devaluation of the world of men. Labour produces not only commodities; it produces itself and the worker as a commodity -- and does so in the proportion in which it produces commodities generally." Marx, Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts (1844)
It's no surprise that in recent years, the government and all of the media, have shifted their terminology. Influenced in all spheres of thinking by Karl Marx, even the language now reflects Marxist ideology. At one point, not too long ago in our history, people were referred to as "employees." Now, they are referred to as "workers." The term employee conveys that they are employed by an entity that has a personal stake in the situation, and therefore requires them to have a stake. The term "employee" conveys that there is a job or position that is employed by a person, for pay. The term "worker" is a socialistic term, that conveys a mindless, brainless and collective effort to "work" for some faceless something. It conveys that something is more about the government than the individual.
So who was Karl Marx, and why does it matter if we understand his legacy? His ideology and his hero worship is alive and well in the hatred of God, American ingenuity and the deep desire of our much of government to dismantle the Constitution and reapply his principles; whether accepted or by force, to a nation of innately free people.
The philosopher, social scientist, historian and revolutionary, Karl Marx, is without a doubt the most influential socialist thinker to emerge in the 19th century. Although he was largely ignored by scholars in his own lifetime, his social, economic and political ideas gained rapid acceptance in the socialist movement after his death in 1883.
He abandoned his family, left them completely poor and without any resources, and they eventually died, in order to pursue his ideology with his new close friend, Friedrich Engels. He spouted a deep hatred for God and family, and mocked God in favor of laughing about being controlled by Satan.
In fact, more than being an atheist, it appears Marx more aligned himself with being a Satanist:
The hellish vapors rise and fill the brain,
Till I go mad and my heart is utterly changed.
See this sword? The prince of darkness sold it to me. -
For me beats the time and gives the signs.
Ever more boldly I play the dance of death. Marx's Poem, "The Player"Thus heaven I’ve forfeited, I know it full well.
My soul, once true to God, is chosen for hell. Marx's Poem, "On Hegel"
He believed, like many anti-god leaders, that he was god-like himself:
With disdain I will throw my gauntlet full in the face of the world,
And see the collapse of this pygmy giant whose fall will not stifle my ardor.
Then will I wander godlike and victorious through the ruins of the world
And, giving my words an active force, I will feel equal to the Creator. Marx's poem, "Human Pride"
His perspectives are alive and well in government, our youth and our apostate society.
After the re-election of Obama, college students chanted "Karl Marx" and "Socialism" at a victory party. An entire generation of indoctrinated youth idolizes this morally bankrupts father of Communism. Do they know what they are supporting? If they were raised in the public school, mainstream media and university system, likely not.
Karl Marx's "Communist Manifesto," is laid out with "planks." The planks are the guideposts to the deliberate and intentional goals of the Communists, of which the current (and many past) administrations are closely affiliated and increasingly aspire to match. Here you will find the 10 planks of the manifesto. Read it closely, to identify why Constitutionalists call the current administration "Marxist." Is it name calling or proper assignment of a correct ideological label?
Plank #1: Abolition of private property in land and application of all rents to public purpose.
How secure is your land and private property under modern administrations? Modern US Courts have erroneously interpreted the 14th Amendment of the Constitution to give far reaching powers to the Federal government over land power, under "eminent domain," RICO, and various and plentiful environmental guises and under the umbrella of the War on Drugs, and terrorism. The Bureau of Land Management, DHS, DEA and ATF daily seize various property and material possessions under these newly interpreted statutes.
Plank #2 A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
Most conservatives and economists are appalled at this redistributive thievery. Increasingly large portions of legally gained incomes are taken to dispense with godless and un-funded socialist and Marxist programs denoted in these 10 planks. For decades this has been increasing, under the 16th Amendment (1913) to the Constitution, which many scholars question whether it was even properly ratified.
Plank #3 Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
One of most modern assaults on personal property is with the establishment of death tax, inheritance tax and Federal and State estate taxes, which severely limit the ability of an individual to pass down ones personal property and legacy, without severe penalties for the beneficiaries. This is an anti-American and godless principal, as God himself established the cause of inheritance to preserve familial property and legacy. Now, the government benefits greatly from the reward of individuals who worked hard to provide for themselves and thereby bless their children up on their death.
Plank #4 Confiscate of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
As we know all too well, definitions matter. The government is not at all concerned with confiscating OR prosecuting illegal aliens, but rather defining in their own terms who are the rebels and "emigrants." This has been redefined to mean anyone not fully accepting and supporting their Marxist agenda. We know with current executive orders and legislation under this administration, the redefining goals include Christians, Constitutionalists and gun owners to be labeled as domestic terrorists. Executive order 11490, Public "Law" 99-570 (1986) and the Crime/Terrorist bill of 1997 were all the pathmakers to current executive orders.
Plank #5 Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.
The creation of the Federal Reserve System by the Federal Reserve Act of Congress in 1913, acts as that bank, is at work politically, as well as actively manipulating the market via the interest rates, and holds a monopoly on the value of the dollar by monotizing money and debt. This was a complete fulfillment of this plank of communism, yet most Americans laugh at the idea we are increasingly communistic.
Plank #6 Centralization of the means of communication and transportation in the hands of the state.
Our communication is controlled by the FCC, and was established during the period of our great communist shift with the Communications Act of 1934. The Department of Transportation and Interstate Commerce Commission was established in 1887, and the Federal Aviation Administration was created along with Executive orders 11490, 10999. With the advent of DHS, the far-reaching scope of the "security systems" implemented at airports have greatly reduced our liberty and freedoms. Americans are forced to abide by these incredulous laws, or be labeled a domestic threat. Additionally, our rail system, as well as other modes of transportation are unionized, and the rail-post systems hold a strict monopoly. There is no place for free enterprise within these systems.
Plank #7 Extensions of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of waste lands and the improvement of the soil in accordance with a common plan.
During the "bailouts," the federal government purchased, and thereby controls many private companies, including many trades such as the automotive and the mortgage/real estate industry. The EPA and Department of Agriculture has all but destroyed farming. The stiff penalties for selling or even trading or self-consuming items produced on ones own land has been egregious. The government has confiscated lands and declared them "wetlands" when there is no moisture at all, closed producing farms and penalized small family farmers for breaking the new laws, all in an effort to oversee what they hope to completely take over with time. These organizations and legislation all have a big part in implementing and realizing the 7th plank: The Desert Entry Act, The dept of Agriculture, The Dept of Commerce and Labor, Department of the Interior, The EPA, the Bureau of Land Management, The Bureau of Reclamation, The Bureau of Mines, The National Park Service, and the IRS control of private lands.
Plank #8 Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
The Equal Rights Amendment propelled women into the workforce and out of the home, contributing greatly to the Marxist goal of destroying the family unit. The Social Security Administration gives a false sense of "earned rights" to citizens, often encouraging them to work so they can "get their retirement," though they receive not the money they paid in, and the money can be accessed by government at any time. Socialist Unions, Affirmative Action and Executive order 11000, all "level the playing field" for people, regardless of their qualifications, and our own current President, and his wife, have largely succeeded due to un-earned achievement on the back of Affirmative Action. The Equal Rights Amendment is the footstool for justification of women in combat. Unions have largely grown into thugs, as represented by communist organizations such as SEIU, and are the fraudulent strong arm that has funded and propelled Marxist administrations.
Plank #9 Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the population over the country.
While many families are looking to escape the great dismantling of family and church and community that took place during the industrial revolution, the truth is, the large cities are bleeding into countrysides not by accident, and not by "overpopulation", but in a direct response to the Planning Reorganization Act of 1949. The goal of Marxism is "even" with everything no matter what the input of an individual, and this is not lost on locations. The goal is to have a more evenly distributed, and therefore enforceable and controlled population.
Plank #10 Free education for all children in government schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial population, etc., etc.
As seen with the new direction of education, built on the foundations of indoctrination of youth, the government clearly wants more access to our children. The greatest fissure in the once rock-solid foundation of the Constitution is through indoctrination of youth. If the youth believes the cause of Marxism outweighs the cause of Constitutionalism; and more importantly, God, it will dissolve. The NEA, the Department of Education, the new "outcome based education" such as CORE and SCOPE, are all bred by the pressure of Marxism. Individuals and families are taxed at huge rates to over-fund failing public schools, which are the most infested training grounds for Marxism, godlessness and all forms of anti-American indoctrination. Yet, knowing these facts, most parents send their children to schools, perhaps searching out "the good districts," when there are indeed none that can escape Marx's plank #10. I believe this was Marx's most important "goal" in the manifesto, and thus listed as most memorable "last." We see this plank in full success today, and it has the greatest and gravest impact on our future as a blooming black rose nation of Communism.
When we look at the 10 planks of Communism, as established by Marx in his Manifesto, written in 1848, we see that our nation has reached many of these goals, or is well on the way to complete fulfillment. However, this was just his basic outline from the Communist play book. There are many other foundations to Communism, Socialism and Fascism that are being implemented in order to dismantle our Constitutional and God based form of governing, established to govern by a people as opposed to a oppressive rule of Communist government. At a more basic level, Marxism is seen in promotion throughout our government, and many citizens support these goals, and can be witnessed in the following ideologies:
- Atheism-extends beyond a personal denial of God, to a pressure to create a society which is godless, and embodies a true hatred for Christ and Christ followers, and Jews, while allowing for cults, self-worship and false religions to flourish. Persecution of churches of those who follow Christ, or for orthodox Jews (many liberal American Jews follow Marxist ideals and help elect leaders who have a great love for Marx and his cronies).
- Hatred of family and God-ordained roles for men and women.
- Promotion of sexual immorality, divorce, abandonment of family (as exemplified by Marx himself) homosexuality, promiscuity and non-marital foundations.
- Disarming of the population, bit by bit through legislation and lies about the lack of necessity if living in a "Marxist utopia" where the government meets all the needs of the people.
- Eugenics, infanticide and superior race/intelligence even through artificial design.
- Feminism-first as "women's equal rights", now radical feminism widely accepted.
- Organized unions, and organized crime.
- Centralized banks, housing, and redistributive wealth. No one shall earn more than another.
- Socialized medicine; which at it's purest form, eliminates the sick, weak, very young, old and "worthless" as defined by the Marxist.
- Appears to "fight for the underdog" or the minority, when in fact, the agenda serves to eliminate them.
- Elimination of anything that makes a people free: Free speech, capitalism, ingenuity, etc.
Marxism is alive and well in our nation in many ways. Through an increasingly oppressive government, through a fraudulent voting system that eliminates a true representation of the people, through a massive ignorance amongst Americans, through increasing godlessness and apostasy among the people in this nation, and through mass indoctrination of youth, increasing at break-neck speed over the past several years.
A nation that does not recognize these sweeping movements toward Communism is surely a nation that is happy to be controlled by them.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
