I am not a Marxist/Progressive. What then makes me think I am qualified to write this? I have studied Marxism for at least fifteen years. During that time I have read and reread Marx’s writings. They are difficult and I learned I had to read them several times. In fact I am now reading many of them again by another interrupter. In addition, I read very few reviews of Marxism by conservative writers, but many by Marxist leaning writers. I know how I think; I want to know how they think.
Marx taught capitalism and all things related are evil. The capitalist is driven by greed and consequently will oppress the worker to satisfy his greed. The drive for achievement, excellence and self-reliance are a masquerade for the fulfillment of greed according to Marx. The antithesis of evil capitalism is a free and just society that is totally equal in all aspects and all citizens conform to the dictates of the community. The economic rule is to each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs. Community reliance for needs as opposed to self-reliance is the ideal of the Marxist/Progressive. All citizens should have the right to make their own decisions according to Marxism, so long as the decisions are in conformity with the desires of the community.
In their quest to transform a free and capitalistic society to an equal and conforming Marxist society, any action is deemed justified and acceptable. Even the hideous acts, of Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov (Lenin) and Lev Davidovich Bronstein (Trotsky) were deemed appropriate because they were for the greater good. For the same reason, the lies and deceit of BO, David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett, Van Jones, and Cass Sunstein are deemed equally appropriate. They applaud and approve the current lies and deceit of Hillary, Holder, Miller, Lerner and Shulman. These are also deemed appropriate since they are furthering the fundamental transformation from a free capitalistic society to the equal and conforming Marxist society. In this quest, the ends always justify the means.
BO, Axelrod and Jarrett received their Marxist schooling based on the teaching of Frank Davis. BO learned literally at the feet of Frank Davis with Davis’ teaching augmented by BO’s grandfather. Axelrod and Jarrett received their indoctrination from students of Davis, but make no mistake, they are well schooled. They, like Marx, hate all things that encourage and teach individualism, excellence and achievement because it enhances independence, liberty and freedom. This is contrary to their belief system of conformity, equality in all things and adherence to the dictates of the community. This is known as totalitarianism.
