You beat me to it. Marxism is far from dead. I would submit that it's healthier than ever thanks to Gramsci. I would never have known about Gramsci if it was not for Free Republic. It's amazing how easy things are to figure out once your eyes have been opened. They are defeating us from within like cancer. The powers that are behind the democrats are Communists, pure and simple. While I highly doubt that the typical blue collar union worker who votes the democrat party line is a communist (actually those guys on the assembly line would probably enjoy going commie hunting at lunch) and the ones with their hands out are too stupid to know a communist from a fascist, the fact remains that the communists are 10-20 years max from taking us down. Class warfare, property seizure, confiscatory tax rates, erosion of our constitutional rights, unchecked immigration, etc... are destroying us. All the smart bombs, missile defense systems, carriers, etc... in the world won't help if someone like Clinton (w\out a Republican house) is in charge.

Even as we speak the Chinese, who already have the Panama Canal (thanks to their lackeys Clinton and Carter)are about to go full force into Venezuela and then Brazil. How long until Argentina falls? Chile will then be isolated and this time there may not be a Pinochet to rise up and throw them out. Within 5-10 years South America will go down. Central America is already halfway there. Who'll be left? The Europeans. I doubt it. Their best and brightest were killed before they had a chance to raise a family, the effects of which we are starting to see now. They can't even throw the Muslims out (not that we're doing any better). Paranoid? Maybe. Maybe not.

I try and remain optimistic. The success of conservatism on talk radio,the internet, and book sales seems to have negated the media's influence. And we all how patriotism came to life last September. While we learned lessons from 9-11 so did the Gramscians. It just confirmed that their philosophy of patiently taking us down inch by inch rather than doing something dramatic to wake us all up.

Marxism is still the choice ideology of replacement against freedom and capitalism. What are the biggest parties in vogue? Hardly big business, save maybe once every 4 or 8 years in the US.

A Friedmanian wet dream.... on line stock markets, social safety nets and ecotourism. In other words, nauseating 3rd Way incrementalism...Gramsci would be proud!

,,, forgot to mention, direct taxation here is bracketed and runs as high as 39%. After that, there's GST (like State tax but at 12,5%) on virtually everything. Needless to say, at 100% you're a slave. They're bragging about a $NZ2,5b fiscal surplus but not saying too much about healthcare and education falling in around our ears, while the talent and money paying for the welfare system export themselves out of here.
