In his third State of the Union address last night, President Obama channeled the mantra of U.S. progressive groups by repeatedly calling for so-called economic fairness in America.
Some progressives point to revolutionary socialist Karl Marx as divining economic theory that stresses economic fairness.
Also, late Harvard professor John Rawls, one of the most important philosophers of liberalism in the twentieth century, named his own theory justice as fairness. Some have previously pointed to Rawls possible influence over Obama. Rawls calls for ensuring distributive justice of resources.
The headlines in scores of U.S. newspapers and news websites today stress the centrality of economic fairness in Obamas speech last night.

“Did Obama Channel Marx During State Of The Union?”
Why not? He seems to all the rest of the time.
So, we must ensure that 80-IQ gangbangers attend college and become civic leaders, in the name of justice. Nice./sarcasm
He was channeling Alinsky who was channeling Marx
From Rules For Radicals:
“In this book we are concerned with how to create mass organizations to seize power and give it to the people; to realize the democratic dream of equality, justice, peace....”
Obama channels Marx 24/7.
Michele Obama channels Harpo Marxs, 24/8, and in all 57 states.
I do not get that channel.
Stated Obama: We can either settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well, while a growing number of Americans barely get by. Or we can restore an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules.
I didn’t watch the speech but they played this clip on FNS this morning. The first thing that came to mind was, “From each according to his ability; to each according to his need.”
Yeah, equality from equal misery. Justice from oppression. Peace from compliance.
I suspect that his ultimate channeling is of jihad.
A godless philosophy as Marxism will never ultimately prevail against a god driven one, in this case Islam.
Now, will Judeo-Christianity rise to Islam´s challenge for world dominance? Or will our descendants be the dhimi?
Sounded like he was channeling himself —a recycled talk if ever their was one.
