Socialism, Marxism & Communism are variations on the same ideology. Basically: • Government ownership of means of production • No private property • Redistribution ("From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs") • Leadership by elites or dictator. Marxism is the political and economic theories of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, in which the concept of class struggle in the current order of society stems from its economic system, capitalism; that in this system there are two major social classes; that conflict between these two classes is the root of all problems in society. The underlying principle: "From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs". In practice, it often leads to violence since, according to Marx, a revolution is necessary in order to smash capitalism and proceed to the following stage. It also advocates for a proletariat dictatorship after the revolution to fight back any counter-revolution from the recently fallen bourgeoisie (capitalists). All Marxist forms of government in the past 150 years have been oppressive on it's citizens and as a result have failed! Because of this, today, radical leftist are taught to use the term 'socialism' and to make the point that socialism works in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and others. Conveniently misrepresenting the situations in those countries and leaving out Cuba, Venezuela, et al.

Classic Marxism

from The Gray Area:

Senator Elizabeth Warren this weekend announced she was setting up an exploratory committee to run for the presidency in 2020. This is a sample of her statement:

America’s middle class is under attack,” the Massachusetts Democrat said in a four-minute, 30-second video emailed to supporters Monday. “How did we get here? Billionaires and big corporations decided they wanted more of the pie. And they enlisted politicians to cut them a bigger slice.

This is classic Marxism!

There is much conversation in politics today about the move left to Socialism by the Democrat party. The truth is it is worse than that. It is not a slide left, it is a jump far left. One that is not new for the Democrat party, but, what is new, is that they do not run from Socialism anymore and they do not hide their Marxist ideology anymore.

Classic Marxism requires the destruction of Capitalism. Read, or watch, Sen Warren's announcement again. That is exactly what she is saying. Capitalism is bad and must be destroyed.

This country was made great and has been the biggest force for good in the world for 242 years thanks to Capitalism. More people have been elevated out of poverty and made wealthy by Capitalism. Marxists, like Warren and other Democrats, erroneously believe that the world economy is a zero sum game and therefore when someone makes a dollar, they are taking it from someone else. If that were true, our economy (GDP) would still be at pre-1800 levels. But it is not. Capitalism, funding technology and new markets, continues to grow our economy (GDP) and that of the rest of the world.

Beware, the Democrat Party, and their Marxist Revolution.
