Writing for The Blaze, Tiffany Gabbay recently produced a thoughtful exposé entitled "Are We Headed Toward the Constitution or the Communist Manifesto?" that breaks down the 10 tenets of Marx and Engels’ infamous 1848 publication and describes how those 10 steps or "planks" to establish communism are slowly being woven into American society.
abolition of private property
"fair and just" is often arbitrary
progressive income tax
wealth redistributed to establish so-called "social equality."
abolishing the rights of inheritance, such as the estate tax, more commonly known as the "death tax."
the Federal Reserve, the impact central bankers have had on the
economy has been
"equality of labor," which often take the form of labor unions and their intimate relations with government.
Affirmative Action, which forces private businesses to adhere to a staff-quota consisting of minorities, women, and people with disabilities.
education system, despotic bureaucrats have largely seized the parents’ rights to choose their school districts, they have imposed certain religious teachings on children, and have decided what can and cannot be consumed during lunch break.
Some balk at the use of the word "Communism," dismissing its invocation as hyperbole. Yet when dissecting actual policies, laws, regulations and bureaucratic government approaches which Americans are increasingly subjected to, and weighing them against the 10 progressive "rules to live by," the facts scream loudly and clearly in the face of those who deny the ever-creeping onset of Socialism. Marx’s Communist "utopia" is only one evolutionary stage away from reality.
