10 Planks of the Communist Manifesto

1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.
2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
3. Abolition of all right of inheritance.
4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.
6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State.
7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
8. Equal liability of all to labour. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equable distribution of the population over the country.
10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children's factory labour in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, &c., &c.[4]

According to the Communist Manifesto, all these were prior conditions for a transition from capitalism to communism

Marx was an idealist whose plan had no chance of working in the real world.....that is why West Germany prospered vs east Germany .....South Korea prospered over North Korea......Taiwan propered over China (until China reformed) and west Europe prospred over east Europe

Off course it is all total shite to say that he was an idealist blah de blah etc because he was not against the present day capitalist system.

He was against a feudalist class system where the common man no matter how smart or driven had no chance to prosper or compete against the lords and princes of the ruling class.

At the time of the Russian revolution I (& you) would probably have chosen communism over the existing regime in which you were a slave and the serfs were property of the land owners.

Read some Russian literature, peasants lay starving and dying in the streets, women and children too, while the wealthy nipped off to their holiday homes in the south of France. Communism came about through a prosperous class's negligence of a basic human instinct: compassion. The emancipation of the serfs was equivalent to the ending of slavery, too little too late to stop the changes in society that were needed. Greed for money always destroys society and civilization. Nothing changes does it?

oh boy, another round of commie bashing...

"wah, this situation I am in sure sucks! what can I do to change this? I know, I'll ignore any rational scientific proposed solution, because that could never work as the same people that lie to me about everything else and fuck me over constantly told me so... And blame all of my problems on those damn niggers and mexicans, beat my wife, and pray for a better time in the afterlife"

how's that for bashing typical American thinking...

well, I am far from Marx because he never fought with reactionaries on their level

Everything on that list just gives the government that's fucking everyone over on a daily basis even more, you give all of your property over to the government, all of you rights, to the government, anything that you would like to experience, to the government, if you guys want a dick up your asses just ask the Professors that teach (push) this crap, you are easily sold on ideas but you have no real life experience, go back to your mommy's and you will get communism..... total control of you, that you agree with of course, in a nice propagandistic fashion.

Shadez, why don't you go start up a new "NAACP" type of organization, then you can rial up that specific group of people and make them fight against the current system even more, then, over the years you can push laws into place that will pass because of the hardships and outright torture those people have to live with on a daily basis..... it's a good way of scamming in the long term, just look into Zionism and you will see where all of the real hate comes from.... 'Niceness' with a catch, the bringing down of the principles that started this country. Zionism is your principle whether you know it or admit.... or not. You are on a string.... but.... you like it.... so you eat even more.
