Van Jones, Bill Ayers and possibly Soros have such dreams for the USA as well.

I have read as much as I could find about the Soviet Terror, including most of the writing mentioned in this article. These people made the Nazis look timid. The most amazing thing is that “Nazi hunters” are still pursuing elderly men who were young recruits with no authority during the Hitler regime, but no Soviet murderer was ever brought to justice, other than the ones who were themselves murdered by their fellow communists. As the leftists love to say, “Where's the outrage?”

Thank you for posting this reminder of the havoc that Marxist values have wreaked on innocent peoples.

But I have one criticism. America was not founded on "ideology." Our acceptance of "ideology," Lockean or other, grew out of experience--the experiences of the particular settlers, here, and their forebears in Europe. (See America--Grounded on Experience & Reason.) This point is vital to an understanding of why we succeeded so well--when we still applied that lesson--and why all the fantasy pursuing ideologies always fail.

This economist sums up our current trajectory quite nicely. Just look at North Korea to see where Obama and his ilk want to take us.

The USSR is now a full generation in the rear-view mirror.
People have forgotten. It will happen again.

“What do you think the Russians talk about in their Councils of State? Karl Marx? They get out their linear programming charts, stoical decision theories, minimax solutions, and compute the price-cost probabilities of their transactions and investments. Just like we do.” - Arthur Jensen (Network)

Communism is just another form of Capitalism, only in this case, the Capital belongs to the State.
