To understand what is happening in the United States today, actually for the last 100 plus years, is not difficult. Collectivism has been around since the beginning of time. We have discussed collectivism many times. Collectivists believe that the demands of the group, the collective, the state, must always be dominant to the dreams and aspirations of any individual. The collectivist says that all must subordinate any individual dreams to what is defined as the “greater good.” The collectivist ideology is an atheist society. It has little to no regard for human life and insists on total accountability to the state and total conformity to the demands and dictates of the state. Of course, we are told, this is for the “greater good.”
The United States is a special target of the collectivists, which the American left represents, because the United States was founded on the principle of individualism. Individualism stresses the uniqueness of each person as a creation of God. That life is precious, that each individual has gifts and abilities unique to them, and that society is better and freer when government becomes the servant with limited power enabling the individual to live their own lives, make their own choices, and have their own thoughts.
Individualism has proven to inspire greater liberties and greater prosperity. Individualism has proven to reduce poverty, raise the living standard of all, have a not only freer population but a population with a strong core family basis, a society with a much lower crime rate, and a society that is happier and strives to achieve. Individualism has proven to be everything that collectivists abhor, that is a society where people are free to live their own lives, make their own choices, and think for themselves.
Collectivists have targeted the United States as its primary target. They have done so because the United States has exposed the failures and evil of collectivism. Karl Marx said in the Communist Manifesto that the United States must be a primary target. Vladimir Lenin had the United States as a primary target when he established the Communist International.
To understand what and how the American left intends to transform the United States from an individualist nation to a collectivist nation, we can review what Marx and Lenin said must be done to bring about their form of collectivism, the same form the American left desires, and that is communism. Both Marx and Lenin had ten specific points necessary for the transformation. These points of Marx and Lenin coincide with the policies of the American left, and political platform of the Democrat party.
Karl Marx's "10 Planks" to seize power and destroy freedom:
Abolition of Property in Land and Application of all Rents of Land to Public Purpose.
A Heavy Progressive or Graduated Income Tax.
Abolition of All Rights of Inheritance.
Confiscation of the Property of All Emigrants and Rebels.
Centralization of Credit in the Hands of the State, by Means of a National Bank with State Capital and an Exclusive Monopoly.
Centralization of the Means of Communication and Transport in the Hands of the State.
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.
Equal Liability of All to Labor. Establishment of Industrial Armies, Especially for Agriculture.
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.
Free Education for All Children in Public Schools. Abolition of Children's Factory Labor in its Present Form. Combination of Education with Industrial Production.
Lenin’s Decalogue “Manual to Seize Control of a Society” which he used in the 1917 Russian Re-Revolution (The October Surprise) usurping control from the original Russian Revolution which occurred earlier in the spring of that year:
Corrupt the youth and give them absolute sexual freedom.
Infiltrate and take control of the mass communication media.
Divide the population into antagonist groups; encourage arguments between them over social issues.
Destroy the people’s confidence in their leaders.
Talk all the time bout democracy and republic, but when the opportunity arises, seize power as a dictator.
Cooperate with the drainage of public funds; discrediting the image of the country, especially overseas, and create panics within the population through the launching of an inflationary process.
Encourage strikes, even if they are illegal, in the country’s key industries.
Promote riots while conspire to prevent intervention by law enforcement.
Cooperate actively in destroying the moral foundations of society and honesty and trust in the government’s promises. Infiltrate other parties with your own people, forcing them to vote for what is useful to your own party’s interest.
Register everyone who has firearms, in order to confiscate them when the time comes, preventing them from opposing your revolution.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
