Ludwig von Mises: Many (without knowing it) are under the sway of the Communist Manifesto

To my readers:  Have you read the Communist Manifesto?  If not, then you cannot understand how so many government programs come STRAIGHT FROM THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO. SEE:

The Ten Planks of the Communist Manifesto

Dialectical materialism is the opposite of subjective valuation and the Bible (what is seen is not real and what is not seen is real).  Kingdom of God believers (Christ in you—breath) know Jesus not as an object but subjectively (internally). Keynesian econommics, born out of there is no design, order or purpose (teleology) in the universe (Darwin—and Karl Marx), value objects and use mathematics in economics resulting in treating the non-elite as cattle to be engineered, directed and controlled. Keynesians give value to objects and ignore the internal and subjective valuations by man and woman.”  SEE:

From below:

“Even many of those who passionately attack Marxism on account of its materialism and atheism are under the sway of the ideas developed in the Communist Manifesto and in the program of the Communist International. They explain depressions, mass unemployment, inflation, war and poverty as evils necessarily inherent in capitalism and intimate that these phenomena can disappear only with the passing of capitalism.”  Mises

———————————

But there are many young men who see through the fallacies of interventionism. They accept their teachers’ rejection of the unhampered market economy. But they do not believe that the isolated measures of interventionism could succeed in attaining the ends sought. They consistently carry their preceptors’ thoughts to their ultimate logical consequences. They turn toward socialism. They hail the Soviet system as the dawn of a new and better civilization. However, what has made many of the present-day universities by and large nurseries of socialism is not so much the conditions prevailing in the departments of economics as the teachings handed down in other departments. In the departments of economics there can still be found eminent economists, and even the other teachers are familiar with some of the objections raised against the practicability of socialism. The case is different with many of the teachers of philosophy, history, literature, sociology, and political science. They interpret history on the ground of a garbled vulgarization of dialectical materialism [see below]. Even many of those who passionately attack Marxism on account of its materialism and atheism are under the sway of the ideas developed in the Communist Manifesto and in the program of the Communist International. They explain depressions, mass unemployment, inflation, war and poverty as evils necessarily inherent in capitalism and intimate that these phenomena can disappear only with the passing of capitalism.”

Dialectical materialism defined:

Dialectical materialism is a Marxian concept developed out of a combination of Hegelian dialectics and the materialist philosophy of Ludwig von Feuerbach. It holds that the inherent logic of the “Material productive forces” propel society via the class struggle toward socialism “with the inexorability of a law of nature.

The Marxian interpretation of reality that views matter as the sole subject of change and all change as the product of a constant conflict between opposites arising from the internal contradictions inherent in all events, ideas, and movements.
