Communist Manifesto

I recently read the Communist Manifesto.  It is deeply disturbing.  I felt, as I was reading it, that Satan himself had penned it.  It is extremely well written and very manipulating.  I think that it is an important read to recognize what is going on in our world today.  Here is an online copy of the "devilous scheme" (President Benson).

The stated goals in the Communist Manifesto are:
  1. Destroy our belief in God or "the opiate of religion."
  2. Destroy the family unit and institute "free love."
  3. Destroy the ability for personal property (hence capitalism).
They plan to accomplish these goals through the use of these ten planks:

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 rights of inheritance.

4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.

5. Centralization of credit in the banks 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 obligation of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country.

10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc.

They are accomplishing these goals with great success.  The majority of the my district's legislatures are pushing these agendas. If these are the goals of the evil, than the opposite are Christ's goals.  I think we should copy this list and study it so that we can recognize their deceptions to us on a daily basis.

I have enjoyed your posts lately about Communism. I have never read any of these books, but have felt passionately that we are loosing our freedoms. I appreciate being reminded of that fire I feel inside when I think of what is happening in our country and in the world.

But what can be done? It's one thing to recognize things are happening, but another to feel completely helpless to stop them. :(
