The following is from … http://www.libertyzone.com/Communist-Manifesto-Planks.html with my reflections and observations below.
Read the 10 Planks of The Communist Manifesto to discover the truth and learn how to know your enemy…
Karl Marx describes in his communist manifesto, the ten steps necessary to destroy a free enterprise system and replace it with a system of omnipotent government power, so as to effect a communist socialist state. Those ten steps are known as the Ten Planks of The Communist Manifesto… The following brief presents the original ten planks within the Communist Manifesto written by Karl Marx in 1848, along with the American adopted counterpart for each of the planks. From comparison it’s clear MOST Americans have by myths, fraud and deception under the color of law by their own politicians in both the Republican and Democratic and parties, been transformed into Communists.
Another thing to remember, Karl Marx in creating the Communist Manifesto designed these planks AS A TEST to determine whether a society has become communist or not. If they are all in effect and in force, then the people ARE practicing communists.
Communism, by any other name is still communism, and is VERY VERY destructive to the individual and to the society!!
The 10 PLANKS stated in the Communist Manifesto and some of their American counterparts are…
1. Abolition of private property and the application of all rents of land to public purposes.
Americans do these with actions such as the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution (1868), and various zoning, school & property taxes. Also the Bureau of Land Management (Zoning laws are the first step to government property ownership)
2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
Americans know this as misapplication of the 16th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, 1913, The Social Security Act of 1936.; Joint House Resolution 192 of 1933; and various State “income” taxes. We call it “paying your fair share”.
3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
Americans call it Federal & State estate Tax (1916); or reformed Probate Laws, and limited inheritance via arbitrary inheritance tax statutes.
4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
Americans call it government seizures, tax liens, Public “law” 99-570 (1986); Executive order 11490, sections 1205, 2002 which gives private land to the Department of Urban Development; the imprisonment of “terrorists” and those who speak out or write against the “government” (1997 Crime/Terrorist Bill); or the IRS confiscation of property without due process. Asset forfeiture laws are used by DEA, IRS, ATF etc…).
5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.
Americans call it the Federal Reserve which is a privately-owned credit/debt system allowed by the Federal Reserve act of 1913. All local banks are members of the Fed system, and are regulated by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) another privately-owned corporation. The Federal Reserve Banks issue Fiat Paper Money and practice economically destructive fractional reserve banking.
6. Centralization of the means of communications and transportation in the hands of the State.
Americans call it the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Department of Transportation (DOT) mandated through the ICC act of 1887, the Commissions Act of 1934, The Interstate Commerce Commission established in 1938, The Federal Aviation Administration, Federal Communications Commission, and Executive orders 11490, 10999, as well as State mandated driver’s licenses and Department of Transportation regulations.
7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state, the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
Americans call it corporate capacity, The Desert Entry Act and The Department of Agriculture… Thus read “controlled or subsidized” rather than “owned”… This is easily seen in these as well as the Department of Commerce and Labor, Department of Interior, the Environmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, Bureau of Mines, National Park Service, and the IRS control of business through corporate regulations.
8. Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
Americans call it Minimum Wage and slave labor like dealing with our Most Favored Nation trade partner; i.e. Communist China. We see it in practice via the Social Security Administration and The Department of Labor. The National debt and inflation caused by the communal bank has caused the need for a two “income” family. Woman in the workplace since the 1920’s, the 19th amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, assorted Socialist Unions, affirmative action, the Federal Public Works Program and of course Executive order 11000.
9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries, gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equitable distribution of population over the country.
Americans call it the Planning Reorganization act of 1949 , zoning (Title 17 1910-1990) and Super Corporate Farms, as well as Executive orders 11647, 11731 (ten regions) and Public “law” 89-136. These provide for forced relocations and forced sterilization programs, like in China.
10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production.
Americans are being taxed to support what we call ‘public’ schools, but are actually “government force-tax-funded schools ” Even private schools are government regulated. The purpose is to train the young to work for the communal debt system. We also call it the Department of Education, the NEA and Outcome Based “Education” . These are used so that all children can be indoctrinated and inculcated with the government propaganda, like “majority rules”, and “pay your fair share”. WHERE are the words “fair share” in the Constitution, Bill of Rights or the Internal Revenue Code (Title 26)?? NO WHERE is “fair share” even suggested !! The philosophical concept of “fair share” comes from the Communist maxim, “From each according to their ability, to each according to their need! This concept is pure socialism. … America was made the greatest society by its private initiative WORK ETHIC … Teaching ourselves and others how to “fish” to be self sufficient and produce plenty of EXTRA commodities to if so desired could be shared with others who might be “needy”… Americans have always voluntarily been the MOST generous and charitable society on the planet.
Do changing words, change the end result? … By using different words, is it all of a sudden OK to ignore or violate the provisions or intent of the Constitution of the united States of America?????
The people (politicians) who believe in the SOCIALISTIC and COMMUNISTIC concepts, especially those who pass more and more laws implementing these slavery ideas, are traitors to their oath of office and to the Constitution of the united States of America… KNOW YOUR ENEMY …Remove the enemy from within and from among us.
It is not difficult to envision what is listed above because we see it being implemented at every turn. This is happening because the people of this country have become too lazy and complacent and have turned a blind eye and deaf ear to the extremely small but well funded and very loud minority of the left which has eagerly and aggressively usurped power at every turn. Statistics show that people who identify as liberal are at a record 24% but conservatives still outnumber them by a whopping 38%. Personally, my belief is that many of the undecided and even some of those who do identify as liberal are changing to conservative daily as we watch the left in complete nuclear meltdown over the fact that Hillary Clinton lost her coronation and Donal Trump is now the 45th President of the United States. As a result, the media has given President Trump a 95% negative coverage while completely ignoring what really matters to Americans.
Why have we seen the ranks of those who identify as liberal increase to today’s level? If you think about it and consider that the far left has been in iron fisted, jack booted, totalitarian control of the public education system of this country from the time they had prayer removed in the early 1960’s through today and that the education agenda has been transformed from teaching pure science and mathmatics to the more enlightened “common core” and social justice agenda driven platforms which produce those who unquestioningly and eagerly accept their marching orders from their handlers in Academia, the Press, and the democrat party. This has also given rise to Antifa, Social Justice Warriors, and Snowflakes that we see so much of in the media today.
Let’s put that into perspective just a bit and see how things line up. The left’s leaders who succeeded in having prayer and the Bible removed from classrooms and the public education systems gave rise to what we saw that later became the culture of free love and drugs during the 70’s. These people quickly set about being elected to public office and became the career politicians on the left that we still enjoy today who have been living on the public trough for the past thirty to forty years. The Harry Reids, Nancy Pelosi’s, John Kerry, Hillary and Bill Clinton’s, and so forth ad nauseam. All the while, we have had decade after decade of mind numbed little lemmings, educated on the pablum of far left thinking, force fed to them in the bastions of higher learning on the campuses of American Colleges and Universities. No longer exposed to critical thinking, free thought, accurate history, civic pride, American Patriotism has rapidly given way to tolerance and fairness as described and dictated by the left. Devoid of rigid worldview’s like Christian worldview with absolute right and wrong, these enlightened and highly educated purveyors of feel good emotionalism can easily move on to subjective and relative definitions of right and wrong. No longer are individuals guilty of wrong doing, no, we can now blame society, and other vacuous entities as being to blame for the rampant evil and chaos of secularism run amok. The amount of energy and resources that is devoted to keeping any and all references to God out of the public venue is staggering and largely successful over the past few decades as little to no push back has been evidenced or opposition at large. We sat by in our silence for the most part as our history has been rewritten into some whitewashed, secularized, lie that is completely devoid of fact but that accurately portrays some wishful portrayal of what the left wishes had actually happened with regard to Islam, American History, etc.
A society that embraces such lunacy barely deserves to exist, much less to survive. After all, it was decadence and insanity that led to the burning and destruction of Rome which had been the greatest nation and success in the world before its downfall. A fiery destruction befell what was said to have been the greatest achievement of human enlightenment ever witnessed before in the world. The conquests and growth of the Roman Empire were staggering in shear growth and size of conquests of populations and land alone. It was the internal power struggles and decay of thinking that brought down the Behemoth of Civilization like the world had never seen before. Primarily, corrupt politics and men with evil intent.
The assaults of today, rather than being on the battlefields are more from within and intellectual. Ideology and worldview are on trial. The pendulum of power has swung very far left today and we are witness to the tail wagging the dog scenarios of a very vocal minority on the left, dictating “Life” to the majority of us who live in what the elites consider to be flyover country between the power bases of the two coasts of the United States. California and New York have the heaviest concentration of leftist thinkers and therefore feel entitled to dictate how the rest of us are to live our lives. Therefore the small liberal minority believe that by virtue of their far leftist ideology that they are therefore entitled to lord over us because they are better able to run and control our lives than we ourselves are capable of. What would correctly have been identified as lunacy and insanity has miraculously achieved levels of credibility that are astounding in light of fact and reason, truth and empirical evidence, and logic over emotion but are today, completely accepted without question. As evidenced with the Gay Agenda, the more that is attained, the more they want. Every success achieved by the left in the furthermost of their agendas has led to an ever growing list of grievances that must by settled. Now we have moved on to transgenderism and its acceptance as evidenced by bathroom policy and debate for trans people. The left is never satisfied with its successes and achievements and never stops demanding more and more as it continues to find things to be offended by and fairness to settle.
So, with unbelievable patience, ideologies like communism have been slowly and methodically introduced into American politics. Much like a frog in a pot who doesn’t realize that the temperature is rising to the boiling point. Like the frog in the pot, the political temperature is rising in this country and will soon reach the boiling point. My belief is that the next confrontation will be ideological in this country coming down to a war between the left and the right. It is coming and I pray that we wake up and take stock of all that is truly taking place before our very eyes. Wake up and react now. Take part in finding men and women of integrity who are willing to go to D.C. and truly represent the people who elect them, not the “Good Ole Boy & Girl” club. Find and support those who truly represent your worldview and belief system and if that is for a Christian Worldview, amen and God Bless them.
