A book review on the Communist Manifesto
The best way to refute Marxism is to read what Karl Marx said. Not rely on what others say he said. After reading this extreme left-wing polemic most can rely on common sense to realise the evil that has been perpetuated in the name of equality. Karl Marx only ever had one employee and she was never paid a penny. She was the housekeeper. That is exploitation for you. Like the poor, hypocrites will always be with us. Nevertheless, Karl Marx took hypocrisy to another level as do many of his adherents. The writing of Marx is nonsensical. Here is a random example:
“But if selling and buying disappears, free selling and buying disappears also. This talk about free selling and buying, and all the other ‘brave words’ of our bourgeoisie about freedom in general, have a meaning, if any, only in contrast with restricted selling and buying, with the fettered traders of the Middle Ages, but have no meaning when opposed to the Communistic abolition of buying and selling, of the bourgeois conditions of production, and of the bourgeois itself.”
Just throw a few thousand words in the air and add the words ‘bourgeoisie’ and ‘bourgeois’ within the context of class hatred and hatred of Christianity and tradition and you can write your very own Communist Manifesto.
Alexandr Solzhenitsyn knew a thing or two about Marxism. He was sentenced to eight years in a Soviet Gulag by people who were brainwashed or intimidated into being part of a corrupt system that was anti-humanity. How any otherwise intelligent person can take any value from these words is a mystery. Yet this appears to have happened in the West who have for all intents and purposes created a UK that is not only culturally Marxist – in the form of political correctness – but an economic system that fulfils half of the ten planks espoused by Karl Marx. For example, in 1888 Karl Marx argued for “a heavy progressive or graduated income tax”. In the England of 1888 this was about 1%. Today taxes in the UK are so ‘heavy’ that many people must work for six months each year before working for themselves – that is gaining the fruits of their labour for themselves rather than paying the state in taxation.
Marxism has enslaved the very people it once promised freedom.
Marx also said that the working Man has no country. In England we are losing our country to supranational interests. Meanwhile, heard on news channels in America and now throughout the world, is a well-worn left liberal platitude : “A world without borders.” More Marxism. And it goes on and on.
“It’s a system without an independent press; a system without an independent judiciary; where the people have no influence either on external or internal policy; where any thought which is different from what the state thinks is crushed.”
