From the University of Michigan in the United States to Tokyo, symposiums and conferences are being held around the world this month to not just commemorate but celebrate Karl Marx’s 200th birthday.
As the last communist superpower, China has been particularly active. It hosted the World Congress on Marxism advocating for Marx’s “relevance” to the 21st century and donated a 14-bronze statue of the philosopher which was unveiled in his hometown of Trier, Germany on May 5.
One thing was missing from the celebrations – a full appreciation that more than one hundred million human beings have been murdered in the name of Marxism and communism. This monstrous genocide is the real legacy of the man whose 200th birthday is being observed this month, Karl Marx.
The youngest generations in the west, lacking in basic historical and philosophic knowledge have, at best, vague, yet often positive views of Marx and Marxism.
There have been a number of pieces written on the occasion of his 200th birthday, but most fail to capture the enormity of his impact. If someone had been able to take a geo-political snapshot of the earth in the second half of the 20th century, it would have appeared that most of the globe was Marxist or going that way. The USSR, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, North Korea, Mongolia, Afghanistan, Benin, Congo, Somalia, Benin, Ethiopia, Angola, Mozambique, Nicaragua, Cuba, South Yemen, and all of Eastern Europe. This does not even count those that were mixed Marxist states.
In addition, Marxism and neo-Marxism took over a large swath of western academia, media, and entertainment, and dominates 21st-century ideologies under the broad umbrella of neo-Marxism. Allleft-wing political ideologies, regardless of the label, must willingly or not bend the knee to Karl Marx’s basic ideas. In fact, one can argue that aside from Abraham, Jesus, and Mohammed, few have come close to the impact of Marx.
How has such a murderous ideology and failed economic system persisted? One popular idea among western “elites,” especially American left of center “elites” is that all actual Marxist experiments went awry, and by deviating from pure Marxist theory, the outcome became polluted. It is the ultimate self-delusion, allowing the advocate to avoid the brutal realities caused by Marxism. In classrooms and dinner parties the declaration always starts out the same, “If only Marxism were allowed to work as Marx wanted…..” This chant is often followed by unholy oaths among the confederates about how they would desire to be in a classless, equalitarian society without the shackles of corporations, government, or God. And depending on the personality of the speaker, it is probably a universal truth that the very people stating this would either be the first victims of the death camps set up by the Marxists or, rise to become Marxist administrators.
The truth, as anti-Marxists understand, is that the “experiments that went awry” were the organic outcome of Marx and his philosophy, not aberrations, especially the fate of genocide. The natural outgrowth of Marxism was always violence, chaos, destruction, and death. That is inevitable whenever an ideology admits a single truth to which all must submit.
Marx attacked every foundation of western civilization that advanced humankind from barbarism. He unleashed forces for evil that are unparalleled.
Marx corrupted human outlook by not only arguing that all of history was a class struggle, but that the struggle was always violent and impossible to avoid. He raised the consciousness of countless generations to believe that the way you should understand class is not based on your behavior, manners, speech, and education, but on your economic condition. This would have been bad enough as this is now what most people on the planet believe how class is measured. But, Marx took these two steps farther. He argued that this economic disparity led to violence and that all human actions were designed to enhance one’s material condition. He reduced human beings from one made in the image of God to an economic unit, and a biological commodity.
Marx’s most insidious and devastating influence was in the area of morality and religion. Marx’s rabid atheism and his virulent attack against the Church ensured “total liberation.” Once humankind was “liberated” by any standard of God’s judgment or God’s laws, he was free to do anything to anyone at any time. According to The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression by Stéphane Courtois,Andrzej Paczkowski, and Karel Bartosek, Marxism led to the deaths of almost 100 million people to genocide in every place that tried it. There has never been a greater number of people killed because of political ideology, including Hitler’s National Socialists, which was heavily indebted to Marx.
This is what relativism reaps. Marx envisioned a communist utopia free from God, class, and need. And if in order to get utopia, people needed to die, it is a small price to pay.
Marxism dictated the struggle of the 20th century would not only be bloody, but ideological. The differences the United States has had with Russia and China were made manifold by the ideological expansion and militaristic drive that both nations embarked on to create Marx’s utopia. It was well that they spent almost as much time attacking each other’s Marxist purity, as they did the United States.
Marxism’s impact on Western Europe and America was more subtle. It was and is the devastation of tradition and manners in pop culture, the faith in relativism, anti-Americanism, and victimization in higher education, and the creation of distrust over property and wealth. Marxism sowed discord among the American family by radicalizing the youth to rebel against parents and convention, though never as bad as awarding medals to children for informing on their parents who could be sent to the death camps as in the USSR. Marx and his neo-Marxist contemporaries have attempted to subvert orco-opt almost every American institution.
Currently, Marxism itself is getting a new lease on life in the same country that donated the statue. China’s dictator, Xi Jinping told a Politburo session in April that they need to “grasp the power of the truth of Marxism.”
We must give the devil his due; Marx was a genius if by that we mean an original thinker whose ideas shook the world. It was a kind of genius from which we have never made a full recovery. Marxism also ensured that multiple generations of anti-communists would hone their skills and polish their swords knowing that the abyss could take real form. Civilized people owe it to the victims of this most sinister philosophy, a philosophy that has caused more pain and suffering than any other, to ensure that Marx’s birthday, does not go unnoticed or untold.

celebrates communist Sputnik
But consistently ignores patriotic commemorations such as Memorial Day
October 4, 2007© 2007 WorldNetDaily.com
Google consistently has ignored patriotic American holidays such as Memorial Day and Veteran's Day, but today it acknowledged an accomplishment of the communist Soviet Union, which launched the Sputnik space.
The giant, known for its widely used search engine, regularly modifies its logo to commemorate holidays, historical events and figures.
But as WND reported, for the ninth year in a row, Google declined to mark Memorial Day – something the company has done for the Chinese New Year, Valentine's Day, Halloween and other observances.
With the surprise launch of Sputnik 1 in 1957, the Soviet Union leaped ahead in the race for space between the U.S. and the communist empire. Sputnik's success followed the failure of the first two Project Vanguard launch attempts by the U.S.
Google also has given special honors for astronomer Percival Lowell, artist Edvard Munch and Louis Braille, inventor of the writing system for the blind.
Other days commemorated included National Teachers Day, Women's Day, Ray Charles' birthday, World Water Day and St. George's Day. Besides overlooking Veterans Day and Memorial Day since the company's inception in 1999, it also has ignored Christmas. Google has been criticized for its one-sided political contributions and content policies:
Rejecting an ad for a book critical of Bill and Hillary Clinton while continuing to accept anti-Bush themes. Rejecting ads critical of Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., while continuing to run attack ads against former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas.
Allowing the communist Chinese government to have the search engine block "objectionable" search terms such as "democracy." In addition, the company came under fire for an editorial decision giving preferential placement to large, elite media outlets such as CNN and the BBC over independent news sources, such as WND, even if they are more recent, pertinent and exhaustive in their coverage.
As WND reported, 98 percent of all political donations by Google employees went to support Democrats, and as a matter of fact, Al Gore is now a senior adviser to Google. Google CEO Eric Schmidt gave the maximum legal limit of donations to Democratic presidential nominee Sen. John Kerry and to primary candidate Howard Dean. Schmidt also contributed the maximum amount to Sen. Clinton.

China's cyberwar plan to cripple Pentagon, battle fleet

Could it happen again?
America's key allies in the Pacific – Japan and Taiwan – could be left virtually defenseless in a deadly cyberwar attack China has secretly prepared.
Codenamed "Pearl Harbor II" by the Pentagon, the plan calls for a simultaneous attack on the U.S. aircraft carrier fleet in the Pacific and the disabling of communications at its headquarters at Pearl Harbor and with the Pentagon.
The plan has been uncovered by signals intelligence specialists at Britain's Government Communications Headquarters and at the equally ultra-secret National Security Agency base at Menwith Hill near Harrogate in the north of the country.
Using a state-of-the-art software program called Moonpenny, the specialists have tracked the activities of the Chinese People's Liberation Army scientists based at their underground headquarters in the Western Hills outside Beijing. The scientists have been briefed to achieve "electronic dominance" not only in the Pacific but over all China's global military rivals in the U.S., Britain, Russia and South Korea.
So serious is the threat to the U.S. battle fleet that President Bush raised it with the Chinese President Hu Jintao when they met in Sydney at the Apec summit.
Remembering communism’s victims
June 12, 2007 | By DeEtte Chatterton
Memorials across Washington, D.C. celebrate the freedoms we enjoy here in the United States. Now a new monument in the nation’s capital serves as a permanent reminder of the horrors that arise when these freedoms are lost.
This morning, President George W. Bush joined Heritage scholar Lee Edwards to dedicate the new Victims of Communism Memorial, located just blocks from the Capitol.
President Bush used his remarks today—exactly 20 years after President Reagan challenged Soviet leader Mikhail Gobachev to “tear down this wall”—to highlight the importance of remembering those killed in the name of Karl Marx’s murderous ideology. And he took the opportunity to thank Lee Edwards for his contributions to making the memorial possible.
“Building this memorial took more than a decade of effort,” the President said, “and its presence in our capital is a testament to the passion and determination of two distinguished Americans: Lev Dobriansky...and Dr. Lee Edwards. They faced setbacks and challenges along the way, yet they never gave up, because in their hearts, they heard the voices of the fallen crying out: ‘Remember us.’”
For Edwards, founder and chairman of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, this memorial to the over 100 million victims of communism is long overdue.
Writing yesterday in The Washington Examiner, Edwards makes clear the necessity of acknowledging and remembering the victims of communist tyranny. “We must remember and memorialize the more than 100 million victims of communism,” he writes, “so that never again will nations and peoples allow so evil a tyranny to terrorize the world.”
Edwards notes that the deadly grip of Communism has not ended with the collapse of the Soviet Union. It persists today in China, Cuba, Vietnam and elsewhere.
Worse, he observes that the public is largely unaware of communism’s extensive brutality. “The widespread ignorance about the staggering cost of communism must be corrected, and the Victims of Communism Memorial is a major step.”
The memorial features a 10-foot high bronze replica of the Goddess of Democracy statue originally raised by students in Tiananmen Square. It is Edwards’ hope—and that of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation that this monument will serve to remind the world of the dangers of totalitarianism. And they hope to ensure the protection of future generations from the tragic loss of life and liberty endured by so many.
