ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Many who rightly condemn the version of slavery that was in effect prior to the ratification of the 13th Amendment wholeheartedly support slavery in its present-day version. Communism, for example, is a virulent form of slavery.

Communism affects people of all races, ages and socio-economic levels. It has been imposed at the cost of the lives of 100 million people who have been worked, starved and tortured to death. Once imposed it is a binding situation with little hope of relief.

Many say communism is dead now. Really? What about the millions under its control in China and elsewhere? The claim that there is no communism in America is equally erroneous. There is an official Communist Party USA.

Karl Marx’s 10 “planks” of the communism include: abolition of private property; a heavy graduated income tax; the abolition of all rights of inheritance; confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels; centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank; centralization in the hands of the state of means of communication and transportation, factories and all means of production owned by the state; equal liability of all to labor; abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equitable distribution of population over the country and free education for all children in public schools.

Does any of this sound familiar?
