Karl Marx and the American Dream
by Jeremy Meister
 sub-topic» Socialism/Communism

The true genius of the modern Marxists is that they have managed to convince a majority of middle-classers that Marx's ideas really can help the bourgeoisie. And it's hard to distinguish between those who actually believe that Socialism is a viable system and those opportunists who are simply planning to use such a system to their own ends.

Billionaires: Who are the real parasites?
by Garry Reed
 sub-topic» Socialism/Communism

Marx was right when he decried the parasitic relationship between government bosses and industrial bosses but he was wrong when he declared class war of worker against boss.

The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism - Newly Revised!
by Kevin Carson
 sub-topic» Socialism/Communism

All that was true — Pareto’s rotation of elites, Michels’ Iron Law of Oligarchy — so long as hierarchical institutions were universally accepted as the sole means of organizing large-scale cooperative effort. So long as that was true — because large institutions are simply not amenable to direct control by the many — every new revolution was a case of “Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.”

But now that hierarchies are becoming superfluous to organizing cooperative effort, and their attempts at doing so are nothing but an embarrassment, we can throw that 5000-year-old rule book in the garbage where it belongs. This is a revolution that can’t be coopted by the old hierarchies, because the material basis of their power is being destroyed.

Socialism Violates Christian Principles
by Jacob G. Hornberger
 sub-topic» Socialism/Communism

The issues that Americans should be discussing and debating are: What is the role of government in a free society? Should it be the role of government to forcibly take money from a person to whom it belongs in order to give it to another person? Is that role consistent with Christian principles? Is it consistent with moral principles? Is it consistent with freedom principles?

Once people arrive at the right answers to those questions, the direction our society should take becomes clear.
