Obama,Marx and Mason

Classical Marxism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In doing my research about Obama and his history, values and resume, I have had to revisit Karl Marx. He is often misunderstood and misquoted and I don't want to do that. Marxisms fundamental tenets are the equalization of the classes and using class envy to manipulate the people to revolt. Economists and other Marxist scholars obfuscate Marxism trying to explain the economic dynamics and legitimize the slavery that Marxism is, but it doesn't change the fundamentals of that philosophy: "we are being exploited by those outside my class and race, so we will give everything to my leaders to help them make those exploiters pay". So we pay for envy with slavery!

Interesting that race and class battles are the extent of Obama's understanding of human progress, much like Marx. He cleans up his rhetoric by calling Socialism, "opportunity" to confuse the issue and minimize concern over his Marxist roots, but it's undeniable nonetheless.

The fundamental misunderstanding by Marx and Obama is that "class struggle" lens distorts their understanding of economics, history and humanity. They don't recognize the human traits that create those exploiters apply to them, and combined with centralized power makes them particularly tragic and effective exploiters. History has shown this without exception. Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Castro, Chavez. They sterilized their economies, created epidemic poverty and dependence and murdered millions of their own. They completely disregard Lord Acton's famous proclamation,"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

Because it is messy, redistributors are unable to understand the "hidden hand" effects of economic feedback by those free to choose transactions based on their own personal preferences. Rather than eliminating the effects of race and class unfairness, both Marx and Obama exploit race and class to further the power of the elite. Rather than having a fair and equitable distribution of rewards and success based on merit among the strata of human capabilities and competence, all the people are poorly rewarded for mediocrity by arbitrary policies set forth by the ruling elite class. It's why free markets work so well, power is not centralized and bad people and products tend to eventually go away because coercion cannot be employed in the consumers decision making process.

The results are in! Centralized control, confiscation of wealth and redistribution of that wealth do not work regardless of the leaders' charm, eloquence, intelligence or intentions.

As the great "Ronaldus Magnus" once said, "Communism works in only 2 places: in heaven, where they don't need it, and in hell where they already have it".

It won't work here either, where it's unconstitutional and we don't want it!
