Good find, WB. Anyone who thinks Marxism is dead, simply has his or her head in the sand. But the steam roller rolls on. Ignore the rumbling sound at one’s own risk. And as I’ve said many times here and elsewhere, this isn’t Soviet communism, Chinese communism, Cuban communism. Marxism is an entirely different animal, and far more dangerous – and serious. The Manifesto was published 170 years ago, and is clearly still the centerpiece of their ideology. Anyone questioning the claims by those who know, concerning the violence and totalitarian nature of this best, need only read this one paragraph from the article:
There is no better occasion than the centenary of the Russian Revolution to redouble our efforts for the cause of socialism. Far from being ashamed of our revolutionary credentials, we are proud to stand on the shoulders of Marx, Engels, Lenin, Trotsky, and the countless other revolutionary heroes of our class from around the world. … We embrace the legacy of Bolshevism and reject those who caricature its accomplishments and organizational forms.
Another useful thing these folks did was remind anyone who’s reading of what the fake news media is NOT telling the public. The MSM are equating the (note upper case) Democratic Socialists of America with a simple blending of democracy and socialist thought, and “explaining” to their stupid viewers that Ocasio-Cortez is merely a Democrat who’s further left than some others in the Party, never explaining that the Democratic Socialists of America is a formal, very real organization, and not too many years ago their web site actually published a list of which members of Congress were ALSO members of the DSA. I used to have that on my hard drive, but had a major crash a couple of years ago, and didn’t recover everything. This list was full of very recognizable names, some of whom are still in Congress today.
Note that Socialism and Marxism both exist in the title of this article. When the leftists say “socialism” you can’t hear the upper case “S” – but it’s there. It’s interchangeable with “Marxism.” In a related article on the web site, they make it clear – a takeover of the Democratic Party and the defeat of capitalism are the stated goals. They reject the party of Clinton, Pelosi and Obama by specific names:
“Anyone but Trump” is lesser evilism by another name. A break from the failed policies of the past is long overdue. In Dante’s Inferno, the words “Abandon All Hope, Ye Who Enter Here” are engraved above the Gates of Hell. The same can be said of the Democratic Party. “For or against” a decisive break from the party of the Clintons, Obamas, and Pelosis is a litmus test and line in the sand for the left. Neither capitalism nor the two-party system can be reformed—they must be rendered obsolete by the working class fighting for revolution through a mass socialist party. … [T]he party of the Clintons, Obamas, and Pelosis is a litmus test and line in the sand for the left.

Strong recommendation: If you’re interested in NOT being tracked by these folks, use startpage.com as your search engine and copy and paste WB’s link into the search bar. Then on the SECOND line of the link to that article, click the word “Proxy.” You will be taken to the site with zero tracking. That web site uses tracking cookies, as well as other tracking devices (as you will notice when you use the anonymous proxy connection, as evidenced by the little missing pieces of information on the site). You can then anonymously click through any of the links on the site and see what else is there if you choose. Your evidence of that is what shows up in the URL bar when you click on a link. It will go to a page that looks something like this:
That’s Startpage’s own link to the page without passing along any identifying information of any sort – including your IP address, which is otherwise immediately available to the Marxist website if you just click the first line of the search engine link, or if you use Google.

SMH, as the modern shortcut goes! The Capitalist says (in effect) “If you’ll do business with me, I can improve your life with more and better products and services than you currently have, and by working and trading with each other, we’ll all become wealthier than we currently are..
“Evil, evil!” says the Marxist. “Some of you will do very well, but you won’t be able to keep everyone equal. Some of you will become wealthier than others, and that’s just wrong!. The only fair way to do it is to make everyone a slave to the State. You might not become as prosperous, but at least, you’ll all be equal!”
The undertaker turns to the gravedigger and says, “True equality is only found in the graveyard.” The gravedigger nods, and smiles knowingly.

Hard to determine whether that matters to the dead.
