Why Karl Marx is hated and reviled by capitalist the world over. His political and economic theories were but a response to an unjust world fashioned by the very wealthy, kings, and eventually capatilists in Europe and America.

It is not the political and economic theories of Marx that need be feared by the people, for they were but a rational attempt to formulate a fairer and more just society. Rather it is those who would keep the masses, under their control by spewing false propaganda, manipulation, and even physical force when neccessary to maintain control.

It is not the theories of Karl Marx's that are a threat to equality and a just society. It is the self interests of those in power who resort to authoritarian and or totalitarian tactics that we should fear.

Capitalism in America has become a leviathan force empolyed by the wealthty and the government to insure there control

Which is why capitalists and the very wealthy hate and revile Karl Marx the world over.

It is not the political and economic theories of Karl Marx that the people need fear. For they were, and remain, simply an attempt to create a fairer and more just society. A potential society that kings and capitalists have always feared.

It is the powerful and very wealthy who control the power that the people must fight to overturn. Which is what Karl Marx realized over 150 years ago. It is what fueled his social, political, and economic theories.

Communism in the spirit of Karl Marx is not an unjust system. But, as we know, true Marxism (communism) has never been implemented in any society to date. Because the powerful in communist countries have used brutal totalitarian and authoritarian practices to maintain their power, wealth, and control.

Capitalist America is, and has been for ages, allowing this democratic republic to slip into the very reality that drove Karl Marx to his revolutionary theories.

There is so much more that can and need be said. Unfortunately America at present has no one able to carry the fight forward as it need be carried.

OT & Breaking... Hunter Biden pleads guilty, strikes a plea deal.

Trouble ahead for the Biden campain?...

Shaw Kenawe said...

No. His misdemeanor was not filing his taxes on time. As I understand it, Hunter Biden had no previous criminal or misdemeanor charges, so he was able to get a plea deal.

This was a big nothing burger.

Leslie, the saint biden campaign will not be affected by this and that is why they did it. Garland can now say he punished hunter and he doesn't have to investigate the family for corruption. Smart move and that is called deflection which both parties are good at and the taxpayer pays the price.

skud: "Garland can now say he punished hunter and he doesn't have to investigate the family for corruption."

As is often usual, your comment is wrong. Garland had nothing to do with the investigation. Perhaps you should have looked at the facts before commenting?

The investigation was turned over to David C. Weiss. David C. Weiss, the U.S. attorney who led the years long investigation into Hunter Biden, was appointed by President Donald J. Trump in 2017 and was retained by the Biden administration to continue the inquiry, a step aimed at shielding the Justice Department from accusations of political meddling.

It was a Republican appointed US attorney -- appointed by Trump to investigate Hunter Biden -- who completed the investigation and delivered the findings.

So blame Trump and his appointed US attorney for the outcome if you think it is unfair.

It wasn't unfair, of course. It was what the US attorney determined after all the facts were in. What people who know nothing about the case are angry about is that it didn't find Hunter Biden guilty of massive corruption, as the Trumpers were promising. So naturally, they believe the fix was in or some such nonsense.

"Officials at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives who were responsible for reviewing Mr. Biden’s file were initially skeptical of bringing charges against him, especially considering that he had sought treatment and had no prior criminal history, according to another person with knowledge of the situation."

skud's optics may be the optics the trumper cult of America will view the decision. They are going to play it as the two tier justice system. It isn't of course. But that fact escapes their cultish minds.
