What is Socialism? Socialism is the dictatorial ownership of all resources. Governments of a Socialistic society are democratically ruled. Citizens of a Socialistic nation receive goods and services according to their needs. There is no need for money. Individuals have no ability or need for wealth. Everyone works to contribute to society for the common good of all. North Koreans do not have electricity in their homes and know no different. Many countries today are Democratic Socialist societies. The choice of the majority will determine the needs of all. These governments subsidize or partially control services and industries. Examples of industries are energy, manufacturing, education, healthcare and public transportation. Workers of these industries are paid by the government with taxpayer money. Democratic Socialistic societies need the populace to operate businesses, as long as it does not infringe upon the government, to provide the taxes. Socialism does have class divide, the ruling class and everyone else.

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.

What is Labor Day?


 

New York City celebrated the first Labor Day on September 5, 1882.

Labor Day is a United States Federal holiday. Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. http://www.dol.gov/opa/aboutdol/laborday.htm

Labor Day takes on a different understanding today. Families are the center of our economy and our economy is broken. Of 303 million Americans, over 12 million Americans are unemployed. 10 million “working poor” families struggle to put food on their tables. 46 million people live in poverty.  A staggering 16 million children are growing up poor. And we, as nation, pay homage to a labor movement.
