Early American Marxism
Early American Marxism ^ | 5/25/2006 | Tim Davenport

I found this site interesting and informative, it traces communism/socialism well back into the 1800's in America, as well as the international organizations in the U.K., Russia, etc., back that far.

It's quick reading, not heavy, but a broad scope. Great introduction to communist organizing, IMHO.


TOPICS: Conspiracy; Education
KEYWORDS: marxism

The quest for a utopian society here goes back to the very beginning.

In 1978, we took the RV and the kids up to Plymouth to see my wife’s sister who lived there at the time. We visited Plymouth Plantation. During the tour, I was struck by the presence of fortified guard shacks in the town square and asked the guide if they were a last line of defense for the citizens there if trouble with the natives spilled into the compound. He told us that they were for the control of the FOOD RIOTS which broke out those first few winters — BEFORE they wisely abandoned their clearly failed experiment with collectivism — before Marx was even born.

Seems each generation or so we must relearn the hard lessons of history.

OBOWMA will teach us the next round of such lessons. I suspect they will be BITTER ones indeed.
Have a wonderful day.

Marxism b4 lincoln...Karl Marx himself about 1851, and for about 10 years, was submitting weekly articles to Harace Greeley for inclusion in Greeley’s NYT.

Actually, not the NYT, as in the New York Times, but the NYDT, as in the New York Daily Tribune.

If you are so interested in earlier American Marxism you have to learn about Rob Owen.
He actually built that we know today as communism in Indiana as early as 1820s before Marx ever went to elementary school.
Yep, America pioneered in communism too.
BTW, it has failed the way it did elsewhere later, too.
Too bad more recent leftists learnt nothing from Owen at the time (or simply had no idea about him and his experience).
