Kerodin Nails It

Kerodin had this on his blog recently. Quote from him:

Communism: Ground Gained
We too often fail to cut through the PC misdirection offered by our enemies within, so let us remind everyone right now: Liberalism is Communism in a cloak.
Below are the 10 points laid out by Marx.
Consider them and consider where the nation is today in reference to each.
Then, consider for each of the points which of our political parties advocate for policies and programs to achieve the stated goals.

1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of  land to public purposes.

2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.

5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.

6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State.

7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

8. Equal liability of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country.

10. Free education for all children in public schools.

Alright then, do you note how much of this agenda is aimed at the destruction of the right to private property? It even aims to destroy the idea of the right to property. 

The right to property is rooted in one concept; In relation to God Almighty, I submit to the authority of my creator. In relation the rest of mankind, I own myself. I am responsible for me. Parents are wardens of their children but NOT owners. A husband is the warden of his family, he has the authority of command within his household , but he is not his family's owner. All human beings have intrinsic value and the same standing before God. God is the author of all law. Therefore, all human beings stand equally before the law. All human beings have the right to acquire and dispose of personal property and real property (meaning Land).

Recognizing this concept, in the year 1215 A.D. the Barons of England (the land owners) gave Good King john an ultimatum: Recognize that YOU are NOT above the law, or you will NOT be King. Recognize the Natural rights of all Englishmen, and anyone under your realm... or you will be removed from your throne. Free men are governed by consent, slaves are ruled by force of arms or the fear thereof. Simple enough, right? Much has been said of the enlightenment period of legal/political thought, etc., but the root of all legitimate government is the in the Magna Carta. The Founding generation of these United States looked to that precedent in writing the Declaration of Independence.

Socialism/Communism, as I have written before is NOT an economic system. If it were, its proponents would have abandoned it long ago. Collectivism fails economically every where it is tried, every time it is tried. 
Why then do they keep pursuing it? Because they're stupid? 
NO! It is because they are evil. 
The useful-idiot true believers never get beyond the theoretical. Their thoughts never see the concrete results of the illogic they espouse. When faced the the results of their pipe dream, they either will go mad, refuse to see it, or have an epiphany. 
The true movers and shakers in the collectivist world seek only power. They seek raw, naked, boot-stamping-on-a-human-face-forever, power! They use to force to acquire and to maintain power. They are sociopaths who cannot conceive of their own wrong. You will notice how socialists/communists call people, who fight back against their property being taken, Reactionaries. Why do they use that term? It is so obvious it is painful. You leave me alone, I don't have a problem with you. You attempt to steal from me and I will "react". Reactionaries are seen as non-submissives. To the socialist/communist, they must be eliminated!
Neal Knox, writing the Hard Corps Report, long ago, told of how he confronted a power mongering leftist in Congress and said something to the effect of , "But the people have a right...", to which the collectivist sociopath shouted, "Oh! You and your Goddamned rights!"
To the collectivist/socialist/communist/control freak, there is nothing higher than having control over any one and every one within reach. Power is it's own reward. Once they have power they will inevitably do evil, because, they can think of nothing else to do with it.

Did you ever deal with a control freak in the work place or class room? When ever a majority finally points out to him that he is wrong, he will declare something like, "Everyone here is an asshole except for me!" Now place that same control freak into a national setting, and give him control over populations of people and apparatuses of production. He will bring the nation to ruin, all the while declaring that everyone over which he rules is an asshole, a subversive, a reactionary... and only he, alone on the earth, is normal. 
Back to the above, Marx's point one, two, and four are immediate attacks on property. Points two, five, six, and ten are all means to the desired end. 
As to point two, does anyone recall when the income tax (sixteenth amendment) and the Federal Reserve Act came into being? Was it just about simultaneously in 1913? Was that a coincidence? An accident of history?
As to point eight, does anyone remember President Franklin Roosevelt's labor battalions under the WPA? Has anyone ever wondered where FDR got his model for the national Farm Program? Take a look at the Soviet farm collective sometime. You'll see soft tyranny in the making.

As to point ten, wouldn't you give your dog free obedience training? Your dog IS your property, is it not?
And lastly, the point I want to make in the entire discussion, is about "the means of production". Socialists/communists always demand the collectivization or nationalization of "the means of production". Do factories grow them selves out of the forest? Does steel forge itself out of the clay? Do works of art, tools and dies, automobiles and airplanes miracle themselves out of thin air? They must be conceived first. That conception takes place in the mind of a man. His thoughts, then his energy exerted as labor, his productive effort, and ultimately his life goes into making things, building things, creating stuff out of raw materials from THOUGHT to finished product. Distilled down, then, it is a man's mind which socialists/communists seek to own. 
Socialism/Communism/Collectivism is THEFT and ultimately, SLAVERY. Do you get it? Now, what kind of person pursues inevitably this same objective? A sane and rational one?

Those who seek to control us are not "Nice guys who mean well..." 
They are not "Well meaning but misguided..." 
They have no respect for the Constitution, because it is the recognition of a law superior their whim. To them, "What I want" is the highest law in the land. Therefor, they cannot be bargained with, unless free men are willing to compromise, in which case, they win some, free men lose some. On it goes until those who would be free are reduced to mud.
