Which of these goals do you disagree with?
1. Abolition of private property in land and application of all rents of land to public purpose. 2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax. 3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance. 4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels. 5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly. 6. Centralization of the means of communication and transportation in the hands of the state. 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. 8. Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of Industrial armies, especially for agriculture. 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. 10. Free education for all children in government schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc. etc. I hate to plagiarize. They're easy to look up. I give my full permission for you to copy my work. Never hurts to educated people. Just curious which of the Ten Planks of Communism you have already bought into to overturn our great nation of ours. Oh, I know. A little won't hurt. I'm sure that many nations would agree, along with the people they left alive. And some of them are worthy of consideration ALONGSIDE competition, like public school. But when Public School gains the power to shut down private school, to refuse home schooling, to end private education... . Are we there, yet? No. Do you think I think we are? I love that argument that since we aren't there yet, how DARE you argue against it. Kind of silly, that one. Or the argument that "You don't know what communism is". All I'm doing is quoting Karl Marx. HE doesn't know what Communism is? I've read his book. I've read Mao's. Have you? You should. You really should be aware of what we are facing. It's time to choose what you really support, folks. You can't hide from it any longer. Some have already chosen, and just haven't come to terms with the fact. The one's that have? Those I respect, on either side. They're the ones who rarely call names, or close their eyes, or otherwise play playground games over the issue. They're too busy REALLY paying attention to what the other side does. Are you? Correction, the work on this page only. My other work you'll have to ask about. Two fun notes: KGB documents released during the latter part of the Twentieth Century not only confirm all that McCarthy feared, but more. And we turned a blind eye on it for fear of being called names. Oh, it's true, we have many such institutions (someone didn't read my post well), and in fact, I can name FAR more. Karl Marx had some good ideas. I still utterly oppose socialism and communism (yes, don't be silly, of course they are different things). It still makes me smile to realize how many socialists and communists get upset for my daring to post the words of their leaders and idols. How DARE I show the world what we are facing!? Funny. Folks, educated yourselves. Read their works. You'll learn what you are really supporting and THEN you can explore these ideas and tread the line between social justice, and socialism, safely. That's all I'm doing. Amazing that upsets some. Telling.

Ya radicals are every were now of days when it comes to politics. But do you really think this is the worse America has gotten to when it comes to paranoia? Remember the red scare of communism.

Great question and information. I commend you for posting this. People just don't realize how close we are to slipping into this dark whole. I'm amazed at how many so called Americans agree with this form of government today. I'm old, so I remember when we were told in the 60's by a communist leader that America... More
