If You’re an Egalitarian, How Come You’re So Rich?, by G.A. Cohen-Book Review by David Gordon

Before progressives; Humanity was exalted above human institutions, man was held superior to the State, and universal brotherhood supplanted the ideals of national power and glory. These eighteenth-century ideas were the soil in which modern Liberalism (before its meaning was changed) flourished

David Gordon describes Marxism, below. This sounds like the progressives in America today. Richard Duke

Marx’s appeal was not to morality, but to selfinterest. Capitalism would inevitably develop into a system in which almost everyone was a member of the proletariat. Since workers under capitalism surrender more and more of what they produce to capitalist exploiters, they do not look with favor on the existing economic order. Happily for them, salvation lies at hand. A socialist economic system, in which workers replaced capitalist entrepreneurs, would not only end exploitation. It would also lead to economic abundance. In a socialist economy, “the free development of each would be the condition for the free development of all.” This paradisiacal state would ensue not because people had changed their nature and become totally altruistic. Quite the contrary, so much would be produced that no occasion for major conflicts would arise.”   MARXISM– PURE LIES!  Richard Duke
