These are the same buzz words used by Karl Marx. It is very safe to assume that Obama took them from his studies of Marx. I can imagine Obama heard them many times while he was listening to his Grandfather and Frank Davis discussing the ways of Marx; or when Obama was discussing Marxism with professors at the different schools he is purported to have attended; or in his many discussions with Bill Ayers and his many discussions with Axelrod, Jarrett and Stern.
Unlike Marx, these Marxists use the terms, but do not define what they mean when using them. Income inequality is of course a relative term. The modern day Marxist uses the term and proclaims how horrible it is. Unfortunately for these Marxists, Marx did define the term when he made the statement, “from each according to his ability to each according to his needs.” Marx understood people would produce based on their abilities and desires, but he said as Obama and his fellow Marxists are saying, they should not be rewarded for superior performance or effort but should receive as the under producer does, based on his needs.
Marx also defined how wealth sharing should take place. His description of wealth sharing is what Obama and the other Marxists are trying to establish, but are afraid to say. What Marx said to do, and what Obama is attempting is to have all proceeds of labor or the Gross National Product go to a central source. The GNP would then be divided according to the dictates based on what the Marxists determine to be fair. Marx has described this in the “Critique of the Gotha Program” and I have explained it in my book. All the social programs are funded and people working are compensated based again on needs and not production.
What Obama and the Marxists never tell us, is they are not striving for a higher GNP number. They believe growth that expands with the growth of population is ideal because then nobody accumulates more than another. This is their goal, income equality with all wealth shared on a fair basis as determined by them.
