So, is the U.S. a "free country" today? Hardly! Not compared to what it once was. Yet, very few Americans today challenge these Marxist institutions, and there are virtually no politicians calling for their repeal or even gradual phase-out. While the United States of America may still have more freedoms than most other countries, we have nonetheless lost many crucial liberties and have accepted the major Marxist attacks on freedom and private property as normal parts of our way of life. The nation, whose founders included such individualists as Thomas Jefferson, George Mason, James Madison, John Adams and Patrick Henry, has gradually turned away from the principles of individual rights, limited constitutional government, private property, and free markets and instead we increasingly have embraced the failed ideas and nostrums of Marxism. We should hang our heads in shame for having allowed this to happen.
The only way to reverse this trend is first to learn what Marxism really is. I have learned Americans, left or conservative, do not understand what it is. We must then begin to talk about Marxism directly and honestly. A national discussion without the spin and political correctness, that has become such a part of our national discussions, must be averted. Then and only then do we stand a chance of reversing this destructive trend toward a totalitarian state ruled by the dictatorship of the proletariat.
