- “The last capitalist we hang shall be the one who sold us the rope.”
This quote from Marx is about the fall of Capitalism and the true rise of Communism. This site was created as a stand against the current tide of anti-capitalist ideals that is crashing against us in the United States.
I think this quote is an excellent representation of the true Communist movement. Basically, it only works when someone is using violence to enforce it. Whereas Capitalism is based on peaceable, voluntary exchange, Communism is the opposite. It only succeeds through forced, regimented orders that eliminates the individual. Everyone is just a cog in the machine.
This movement sounds good when propaganda is spewed about by politicians. The intellectuals (a certain type of intellectual, not just smart people) seem to go the direction of Socialism in society, so they push these beliefs on the younger generation. (The reasoning behind this can be found in an excellent article here) It is my belief, however, that we can overcome this and it will not stand forever. Freedom, individualism, and Capitalism, I pray, will live on. If not, I will be the guy selling the rope…
