Karl Marx was a student of G.F.W. Hegel. The modern day Marxist/Progressives, including the Obamas, Jarrett and Axelrod are proponents of Marxism. The totalitarianism belief for total conformity, as opposed to individualism, comes directly from Hegel. Hegel said in order for individual satisfaction to be unified with individual freedom, the individual must conform totally to the social mores and beliefs of the community. Marx went on to express that this would be reclaimed when all productive property was again in the control or ownership of the community. When that occurs, society would again be classless and we would all conform socially, politically and economically.
The Declaration of Independence says, directly contradicting Hegel, Marx, Wilson, Roosevelt and Obama, the rights of man are granted by the creator and include the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This is not the happiness of the state, but of the individual. This is why the current administration has such difficulty in being transparent. Instead, they must be secretive and deceptive because their beliefs are in direct contrast to the American Experiment.
