Because if you don’t have any particular plans, we have an idea for you: Take part in a national day of activism to educate your campus and raise awareness about alignment of some American policies with the ten planks of the Communist Manifesto.
The twenty years since the wall fell have seen formal communism decline dramatically around the world. Today only the People’s Republic of China, North Korea, Laos, Vietnam, and Cuba remain self-described communist regimes. However, a government doesn’t need to call itself “communist” to have strong communist, socialist, or statist leanings.
Charges that the federal government is inching ever closer to communism are far from new – this 1955 academic editorial contends that arresting all card-carrying members of the communist party would have little effect on our march toward communism: Our own politicians will get us there quite handily on their own.
In fact, the American government began to nail into place each of the ten planks of communism long before the Berlin Wall fell. Can you suggest a policy of our government which fits with each plank? Check out these sites here, here, here, and here for modern assessments on which you might base your own list of comparisons.
On November 9, Young Americans for Liberty and CampusReform.org are cosponsoring a national day of activism to protest this country’s socialistic tendencies and rebuilding of the Berlin Wall…on our own soil. Click here to learn how.Published in
