Karl Marx wrote that the essential condition for the existence and for the sway of the bourgeois class is the formation and augmentation of capital. Marx taught that capital is not a personal but a social power. The distinguishing feature of Karl Marx’s plan for takeover was not just the abolition of property generally, but the abolition of bourgeois property (i.e. “You didn’t build that”).
Marx specifically highlighted hard-won, self-acquired, self-earned property. Marx called for the conquest of political power by the proletariat. To deprive the bourgeois of capital Marx proposed a ten-point plan featuring abolition of private property, concentration of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank (i.e. the Fed) with State capital and a heavy progressive or graduated income tax. Any of this seem relevant to you given events of recent days in Washington. Read Return of the Real Obama by Charles Krauthammer in the spirit of Karl Marx.
