When you objectively study the collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat- all virtually the same) mentality of the national and international leaders of this evil and often perverse ideology, it becomes abundantly clear that they believe strongly in the idea that, “this is good for everybody else but not for me.” We saw this in the life of Karl Marx. Marx advocated for the proletariat, but yet he deemed himself and his family to be above the proletariat as both he and Jenny, his wife, were cruel and condescending to the companion of Engels, Mary Burns, an Irish lady he met when she was a worker in his factory.
Marx was also notorious for his condescending attitude toward any member of the proletariat. Both Karl Marx and Jenny Marx were raised in the upper economic class of their hometown Trier. They never forsook their bourgeois upbringing and strove to raise their children in that manner despite Marx’s refusal to provide for his family.
Marx stated that there should be a 100% tax on all estates because the assets held by any individual were rightfully the assets of the people and the 100% tax would simply return the assets to their rightful owner. Yet when Jenny received her inheritance and when Marx received his inheritance, they spent every penny on themselves, giving nothing away. Marx was a typical collectivist in that he practiced the collectivist idiom, "do what I say and not what I do."
This has been the standard for all leaders of collectivist nations. We saw it in the Soviet Union, the members of the Soviet bloc, Mao’s China, Castro’s Cuba, and Venezuela. We are now seeing this same practice being employed by the collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats, - all virtually the same) advocating this ideal in the United States.
Marx said the absolute rule is, “From each according to their ability to each according to their need.” Marx explained that this meant all would strive to produce at their optimal level because they knew all they produced would be shared with all according to the needs of all. So when Bernie Sanders explained his unequal status by saying, "I didn't know that it was a crime to write a good book, which turned out to be a best-seller," he was following both the rules of the individualist and the collectivist, produce at your optimum.
He went on to explain further by stating, "I don’t apologize for writing a book that was No. 3 on The New York Times best-seller," he added but reiterated his belief in a "progressive tax system which demands that the wealthiest people in this country finally start paying their fair share in taxes.”
Sanders followed the same distorted thinking exhibited by Marx and all collectivists. That is that they agree that it is fine to produce at the optimum, but the “to each according to their needs,” must be modified when applied to themselves. If Sanders was a true and dedicated Socialist, and not a good for everybody else socialist, he would have given all of his book proceeds away. In fact, he would give away all of his income and wealth and retain and receive only what is necessary for his immediate needs.
Sanders is the same as all the others. That is this philosophy is great for others and they should strictly adhere, but it is just fine for me to modify my beliefs to allow me to live way above my needs. Marx practiced this same ideal as did Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Castro, Chavez, Obama, Holder, Jarrett, and all other comrades who were in a position of authority and power.
Thank you Bernie Sanders for once again exposing the hypocrisy of the collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same.)
