American Communism

JUST WANT SOME FEEDBACK.  I WAS DOING SOME SEARCHING ON THE INTERNET AND CAME ACROSS THE 10 PLANKS IN THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO AND WAS SHOCKED. 

 

I ALWAYS KNEW THIS COUNTRY WAS NOT FREE AND THIS CONFIRMS IT EVEN MORE. 

 

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.

Re: American Communism

It seems insidious, but I doubt that all of these things were put together as some nefarious plot.  America has some socialist-like policies, but it has a long way to go before it ends up as the next Soviet Union.  So, take comfort friend but stay vigilant.

We readily acknowledge the existence and persistence of "backroom politics", but when you change that label to "conspiracy", watch what happens. Is it a conspiracy that most have been conditioned to sneer at conspiracy?  I don't run around frothing at the mouth with a tinfoil hat on drinking kool-aid, but sometimes people tell me to stop with the conspiracy theories, yet when I point out their previous statements along the lines of "government snuck that piece of legislation through", or "The Republican bastards are lying!  They have a hidden agenda they want to foist on us!" as technically conspiracy statements, you should see the look of what Chomsky termed "cognitive dissonance" creep across their faces which they try to ignore or get openly hostile towards me.  I then tell them you can call me a conspiracy theorist if I get to call you a coincidence theorist.

Conspiracy or coincidence?  Despite MASSIVE
circumstantial evidence that there is a conspiracy, either way, we are
well on our way on the road to serfdom, as Hayek would point out.   Either way, it's wrong, and it has to stop.   That's why we are here, on this site.

By the way,. the original poster is right.  The United States IS a communist (assuming you are defining Communism by the 10 planks Marx and Engels defined) country, as are most so-called democratic countries.  What's a label?  If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck...

In the Soviet Union, you could vote.  There were two or more people you could vote for, all belonging to the same party.  Notice how in the US, there are only two parties that win?  Democrats or Republicans?  They are Republicrats. The blue and red lipstick you apply to the pig of the State in an election?  After the election, the lipstick fades and the State goes right on fleecing you.  This Left/Right paradigm keeps people busy and divided so they don't see they actually live in a feudal system.  it is a ruse. It is a State established deflection. There is no Left/Right in a feudal system, only top and bottom.

Re: American Communism

JK121 and TheRemnant,

 I understand how you feel, but there is evidence that there is resistance to socialism in your country.

http://hotair.com/archives/2009/02/18/california-republicans-oust-senate...

 California Republicans are standing their ground against tax increases despite a dismal economic situation.  They are fighting to cut spending at a time where it may not be politically expedient (afterall, can you get anymore liberal than California?).  Democrats and Republicans may seem eerily similar on how they govern sometimes, but there are still some fundamental differences.

  That is not to say that there are some scary people in charge of the country.  Watch for Obama in the coming years  to try to eliminate term limits and suppress, through legal means, any criticism of his administration.

Thanks Gadfly,

The fundamental failure of asking the State to limit itself is to ask the State to help with the implementation.  Once a monopoly on violence is imposed, it is, by its very nature, corrupt.  It will eventually scope creep and always nullify a document that is supposed to contain and curtail its powers - a Constitution - for the sake of political expediency.

Agorism is the correct solution.

Re: American Communism

I like Agorism in theory.  However, the "tainted milk" scandals and "Madoff ponzi" schemes of the world have eliminated this as a viable option.

Re: American Communism

Just Doing His Job

The Four Stages of Subversion are,

1. Demoralization

2. Destabalization

3. Crisis

4. Normalization

We are moving into #3 right now, this is the turning point for the US, I'm thinking we'll be moving to a much more severe collectivist form of govt then we already have.

Touche!

Your comments are right on the mark.  The freedom and prosperity of the many has been usurped by the few. 

A viable third party is needed!

Perhaps it is time for me to "eat crow". The Obama Aministration may be a nefarious one

Hi Larry, 

You are falling into the "false opposites" fallacy.

For example, the opposite of being a fan of one hockey team is not being a fan of another team.  The opposite is one who is not a fan of hockey.

The opposite of "Should the Federal Reserve raise interest rates?" is not "Should the Federal Reserve lower interest rates?" It is, "There should be no Federal Reserve."

The opposite of "The Democrats and Republicans control the government!"  is not "A viable third party is needed!".  It is, "There should be no government at all."

False opposites are promoted by those who wish to deflect the true causes and solutions to our problems.

Cheers!

Re: American Communism

TheRemnant - the reality is that the two party system has been a dismal failure as Washington remains perpetually gridlocked in incompetence.  Both parties have been bad stewards of our economy, environment and energy policies.  You may chose to spin it any way you want but the facts speak for themselves.

I am not sure what you mean.  I don't think I cater to spin.
