Personal Thoughts

Editor's Say:

Carl Marx and Friedrich Engles'
10-Point Plan

The following 10-point plan was originally conceived in or about 1848 by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engles. The book in which it appears is that of The Communist Manifesto. At the time this book was written, Communism did not yet exist, so, in a real sense, Marx and Engles are the fathers of modern day Communism. This document has since become a powerful source book to most good Socialists.

Why is this important to those of us who live in the United States? If you look at the objectives set down within this document and you take the time to carefully correlate them to what is happening today in this and other free countries, it should become apparent to you that the majority of what is happening in domestic and international matters closely follow the road map set down within Marx and Engles 10-point plan.

What are the road signs to look for, you may be asking? Federal control of transportation; communications; agriculture; manufacturing; our public schools, teachers, the students--our children; not to mention excessive taxes, a major move to eliminate weapons in the hands of honest, law-abiding citizens, control of the press, and a leap toward total control over local and state police agencies.

I'm sure I left out more than I've included--but take the time to assemble the puzzle before you and stop listening to those who say that such a grand plan could never take place in the United States. Anything is possible when you have lots and lots of money. Isn't that, for the most part, how the federal government operates? If you'll do this, that, and the other thing OUR way, we'll give you more of your own money. But, if you fail to do as we TELL you, then we'll take your money away!!

    The Communist Manifesto, 10-Point Plan
  1. Eliiminate private land ownership and rent as applied to public property.

  2. Institute a heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

  4. Confiscate all properties owned by emigrants and rebels.

  5. Establish a national bank where all money and loans are owned by the federal government and constitute a monopoly.

  6. Nationally centralize the control of communication and transportation by the federal government.

  7. Place ownership of factories and "instruments of production" in the hands of the federal government, cultivate the wastelands, improve the soil thereof according to a formed plan.

  8. Everyone will be liable to work and labor. Industrial and agricultural armies will be formed, especially in agriculture.

  9. Combine agriculture and manufacturing, eliminate the soverienty of town/state and federal government by distributing the population more evenly over the face of the country.

  10. Free public education for all children, the elimination of children performing factory work, and combine education and manufacturing.
