The Communist Manifesto is the antithesis to the United States (U.S.) Constitution. The Constitution is a prescription for building an advanced country, while the Communist Manifesto is one for bringing it down. Those who wrote the U.S. Constitution believed in the existence of a power greater than them, while the two socialists turned communists who wrote the Communist Manifesto did not.
Those authors, Karl Marx and Friedrich or Frederick Engels, neither yet 30 years old, hated the Industrial Revolution's newly forming "bourgeoisie" or middle class of white collar workers, a class that professed a belief in "their Creator" in the U.S. Declaration of Independence. These bourgeois people were acquiring the property of and independence from the upper class. In their manifesto, Marx and Engels portrayed them as slave owners who were oppressing a working class with the attributes of slaves.
According to the manifesto, communists aim to motivate the working class or "proletariat" to destroy the middle class or "bourgeoisie." Through their unions the working class are to be urged to revolt against governments everywhere, to eliminate all property and classes, and thus end all means of oppression. A utopia would naturally materialize then, requiring no government at all. What actually results, a "Dictatorship of the Proletariat," is described by W. Cleon Skousen in The Naked Communist (1958), a history of Communism that every American should read.
Communists from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) predicted in the 20th century that the United States of America (USA) would fall without a shot being fired. The USA now stands on a precipice of debt. The purposeful destruction of our money or "capital," which as the manifesto says is "essential" to a capitalist country, has been carefully orchestrated over time by believers in the Communist Manifesto.
As an American soldier, I was exposed to the communist environment when I visited East Berlin in 1977. As a nurse, I work to anticipate and head off bad outcomes for my patients. Those two came together when I listened to President Obama campaign before he became president. He sounded like my East German tour guide. It could have been the same speech writer.
I asked myself why the Democratic Party would put forward a communist as a candidate. That question motivated me to read the Communist Manifesto for the first time. It motivated me to run for congress in 2010. It motivated me to put the manifesto with its major points highlighted and explained for the noncommunist on this website and then in my book, Undermining the U.S. Constitution: How the Communist Manifesto of 1848 Blueprints the Actions of the Democratic Party and President Obama Today, along with examples.
I learned that the Democratic Party has always embraced the "twins"-- socialists and communists. Some other names the twins go by include: liberals, progressives, leftists, environmentalists, and feminists. Now the Democratic Party's progressives are "in bed" with the Muslim Brotherhood, and it's probably a marriage of convenience, since both believe their "like" means of lying, cheating, and stealing are justified by their "different" ends of one world government.
Obama's reelection was a major blow. Elected Republicans who want congress to adhere to the Constitution are now calling for our help (and not just in dollars and cents). As I wrote in my book, Undermining the U.S. Constitution:
Rise Up Patriots! Let the Silent Majority be Heard. . . . The Democratic Party embraced Socialists and Communists long ago. Because of "bipartanship" many Republicans in the Grand Old Party (GOP) have been corrupted. But the Republican Party, started by people like Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln to prevent the spread of slavery, is still our natural home. (p. 79)
My answer is to become a candidate for congress again. What is yours?
