What is Marxism? Marxism is one step down from communism and a form of socialism. Karl Marx, a German social philosopher and revolutionary, collaborated with Friedrich Engels, another German philosopher, on an economic and political theory to produce the Communist Manifesto. Marx believed capitalism oppresses the working class, capitalism creates monopolies, and a classless society should publicly own resources and the production there of.

The foundation in the belief of Marxism is that in theory, history lays out economic crisis through class struggle. The wealthy elites have all the resources paying the workers low a wage to increase their wealth. As their wealth increases, the class inequality grows larger. Marx proclaimed economic crisis will increase poverty leading the working class to revolt against capitalism, seizing power to create a system of economic co-operation and a classless society on an international level.

Our nations Democratic Progressive regime aggressively propagates class division. President Obama campaigned for re-election on the platform of taxing the wealthiest few, economic fairness for the “working class”, and social equality. Sounds like Marxism to me.
