How is everyone… Continue reading Have you ever wondered just how Marxism is supposed to work?
The reason we are able to categorize the spirit of "the Left" as Hegelian and why this is so important is this. Hegel's view, as described in his Philosophy of History, is that "Spirit" moves humankind progressively through stages toward Spirit's ultimate manifestation as perfect reason. Each stage in the (usually violent) dialectic renders the… Continue reading The Left and Hegel – only Monarchy can counter it
How much of the following Marxist ideology already is present in America? The Communist Confession of Faith was a catechesis written by Frederick Engels one year before the Communist Manifesto.
