    “That brought us to our essential difference, the difference of the Evolutionary Collectivist and Marxist, the question whether the social revolution is, in its extremity, necessary, whether it is necessary to over throw one economic system completely before the new one can begin. I believe that through a vast sustained educational campaign the existing Capitalist system can be civilised into a Collectivist world system;” - H.G. Wells, Russia in the Shadows

    Will socialism destroy the America we have all known? We have heard much about the rise of socialism in our nation. Does socialism affect you? Will it affect your life, family, children, work or future? What is socialism? Is socialism an evil thing? Does socialism affect the Church? Should Christians be concerned? The short definition of socialism is this: Socialism is a political theory that advocates government ownership of industry or, said another way, government ownership in the means of production. In the last six months we have experienced an unprecedented shift from a free market economy (private ownership in...

    American Thinker ^ | 3/16/2009 | Steven Plaut
    Marxists claim that Marxism is a science. It is not. It is a sort of pagan religious cult. It is a theology. It is a form of superstition. Marxists claim that Karl Marx understood capitalism and economics. He did not. They also claim that the entire validity of Marx's set of theories on all subjects rests ultimately on how valid Marxist economic thought is. Marxist economic thought was completely wrong. Marx claimed that all products contain value that is directly proportional to the amount of labor embodied within them. He was wrong. All the rest of Marxism is based entirely...

    The name “City Year” reflects the idea that just as young people enroll in a freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior year at school, so too should they be challenged to dedicate themselves to a “city year” of full-time service, idealism, civic engagement, and leadership development. (SNIP> Twenty years ago, City Year was founded by Michael Brown and Alan Khazei, then-roommates at Harvard Law School, who felt strongly that young people in service could be a powerful resource for addressing our nation's most pressing issues. Since 1988, City Year has been built on the belief that one person can make a...
  • For new ideas, Obama reaches to Karl Marx. In academics it might be considered plagerism!

    Marx - "satisfaction of his own selfish need." Obama - "virtue out of selfishness." ------------------------------------------------- Under private property ... Each tries to establish over the other an alien power, so as thereby to find satisfaction of his own selfish need. The increase in the quantity of objects is therefore accompanied by an extension of the realm of the alien powers to which man is subjected, and every new product represents a new potentiality of mutual swindling and mutual plundering.

Elective Decisions has learned—through an anonymous spokesperson at the Heritage Foundation—that Bill Ayers would be tapped to head up the Department of Education, thereby changing American schools from within.

    As the financial crisis continues, the Bush administration, led by Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, is moving ahead to enact the unconstitutional and socialistic measures contained in the recently passed and misleadingly nicknamed "bailout bill" — misleading not because it's not a bailout, but because it's much more than that. This bill — officially the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 — is, along with the Treasury Department's "Blueprint for a Modernized Financial Regulatory Structure," about nationalizing the entire United States financial system, a truly radical act that will hasten the United States of America along the road to total socialism....

    Few fights are nastier than theological quarrels. This axiom has been amply confirmed by the on-going spat that has erupted between two brothers who were crucial figures in the rise of liberation theology -- the Brazilians Leonardo and Clodovis Boff.Largely unreported outside theological circles, this dispute's importance is more than academic. It suggests that liberation theology, once so prominent in Latin America, is imploding under the weight of its own ambiguities and the force of decades of powerful critiques.Of the two Boffs, Leonardo is the more famous. His book, Church, Charism and Power: Liberation Theology and the Institutional Church (1985),...

Language is a key battleground in culture wars, and as soon as you step into your opponent’s frame of reference and start identifying bad weather as climate change, illiteracy as public education, and freedom as desperate need of care and supervision, you may lose not just the debate but the war, the culture, and your very way of life.

    WASHINGTON – In a move that has already angered some of his most ardent supporters, President Bush has asked the Democratic leadership in the U.S. Senate to revive a proposal for ratification of the United Nation's Law of the Sea Treaty, an international agreement defeated two years ago by Republican leadership in the upper house. Critics say ratification would compromise U.S. sovereignty and place 70 percent of the Earth's surface under the control of the U.N. – even providing for a "tax" that would be paid directly to the international body by companies mining in the world's oceans. The battle...

    What do Karl Marx, Leon Trotsky, Noam Chomsky and George Soros have in common? They were/are all radicals, born to Jewish parents, had no Jewish identity and hurt Jews (not to mention non-Jews). The term "non-Jewish Jew" is generally attributed to the Jewish historian Isaac Deutscher, who wrote an essay by that name in 1954. The term describes the individual who, though born a Jew (Judaism consists of a national/peoplehood identity, not only a religious one), identifies solely as a citizen of the world and not as a Jew, either nationally or religiously. Once the walls of Jewish ghettos broke...

    Elton John - make that Sir Elton John - recently declared in a magazine interview that "religion should be banned completely." At least he didn't say it should be banned selectively; that might smack of favoritism and discrimination. It seems his animus toward religion is driven largely by his status as a homosexual. He resents religiously based disapproval of his lifestyle and says that religion directs "hatred towards gay people." His ironic remedy is that religious intolerance, as he sees it, shouldn't be tolerated. He's also critical of religious leaders for not coming together to end war. Now, Elton John...

Before a standing-room-only audience in a ballroom of the Sheraton hotel in midtown Manhattan, Mrs. Clinton gave opening remarks at the conference session “Women and the Power of Economic Opportunity” then moderated a panel that included President Bush’s former secretary of agriculture and three leaders in the development and anti-poverty fields. “Far too many women are...

In The Falling Paycheck, the Times editorial board complains that real wages aren't keeping up with the economy's continued expansion.

    Karl Marx is the hero of some labor union leaders and civil-rights organizations, including those who organized the recent protest against proposed immigration legislation. It's easy to be a Marxist if you haven't read his writings. Most people agree that Marx's predictions about capitalism turned out to be dead wrong. What most people don't know is that Marx was an out and out racist and anti-Semite. He didn't think much of Mexicans. Concerning the annexation of California after the Mexican-American War, Marx wrote: "Without violence, nothing is ever accomplished in history." Then he asks, "Is it a misfortune that magnificent...

For much of the twentieth century,the Left appeared to be winning all the battles. The Left was joyous and triumphant.

Movement or not, there are compelling reasons to oppose home teaching both for the sake of the children involved and for society. Home schooling is an extension of the misguided notion that "anyone can teach." That notion is simply wrong. Recently, some of our best and brightest college graduates, responding to the altruistic...

    You would have never heard of Karl Marx had it not been for V.I. Lenin.

    What Is Left of Socialism Leszek Kolakowski Copyright (c) 2002 First Things 126 (October 2002): 42-46.Karl Marx—-a powerful mind, a very learned man, and a good German writer—died 119 years ago. He lived in the age of steam; never in his life did he see a car, a telephone, or an electric light, to say nothing of later technological devices.

Before the Berlin Wall was chiseled into bric-a-brac, May 1 brought forth red flags, goose-stepping soldiers and ballistic missiles strapped to mobile launchers.
