Latest Karl Marx Items
Chief Political Correctness High Priestess Diane Rehm, with one of her often-biased radio panel discussions, recently carried this ancient back to the late 1930s' Great Debate, framed as "isolationism" vs. "interventionism" in foreign policy. (Full disclosure: I was a teen-age member of William Allen White's Committee for Defending America by Aiding the Allies. Contrary to rumor, on Dec. 8, 1941, I was not refunded my $3.50 contribution taken from my weekly 25-cent "allowance.")
President Hugo Chavez has spent much of his career praising the socialist ideas of famed atheists such as Karl Marx and Fidel Castro.
"Environmentalist activists are dogmatic, ideological radicals hell-bent on transforming society into a colossal, highly regulated, redistributive commune void of inalienable rights. Their lack of integrity enables them to look you straight in the eye and lie about the facts." Brian Sussman, veteran meteorologist-turned-KSFO-talk-radio-host in San Francisco, pulls no punches in his new expose, "Eco-Tyranny: How the Left's Green Agenda Will Dismantle America."
The only thing "new" in North Korea's new year is that their hell is under new management. "The great leader," Kim Jong-il, has been replaced by Kim Jong-un, "the great successor," but the state that causes incomprehensible misery for its unfortunate inhabitants continues tyrannically along.
In his State of the Union address Tuesday night, President Obama stressed "economic fairness" ("Obama calls for taxes, investments," Web, Tuesday). Sounds really humane, right?
With each passing day, it becomes more obvious that the Occupy Wall Street gatherings so beloved by the liberal mainstream media are a phenomenon Karl Marx might have describe as a natural byproduct of "decadent" capitalist societies under economic stress.
With the Tea Party, the issues were clear. Government was too big, taxed too much and needed to rein in its out-of-control spending. Its message was a clarion call for limited government coupled with fiscal responsibility.
Imagine what life would be like if you did not have a bank account and a credit or debit card. It would be much harder to pay your bills, take trips on airlines, which normally require a credit or debit card, and receive payments, just to start. The shocking thing is that more than one-quarter of all American households are unbanked or underbanked and that this number is rising, not falling, largely because of ill-thought-out financial regulation and policies.
President Obama's shock troops are marching in the streets. Occupy Wall Street - a movement composed of communists, anarchists, socialists and anti-globalization student radicals - is spreading. Protests have swelled in cities including New York, Washington, Los Angeles, Chicago, Denver and Philadelphia. The protesters are gaining influence and numbers. A ragtag group of hippie students has turned into a potent political force.
