Communism is imposed when rulers outlaw private property and the freedom to be self-supporting. The government owns everything and the serfs are frozen in a permanent economic depression. Communism has been tried in various forms for centuries, but it always fails.
The current Communist movement began in Europe in the 1800s as an objection to the early, risky beginnings of the Industrial Revolution. The perpetrators were academic revolutionaries armed with the errors promoted by a gaggle of philosophers. The founders of modern Communism were Karl Marx and his benefactor Friedrich Engels.
Karl Marx was born in 1818 and died in 1883. He grew up in Tier Germany, the son of a Rabbi. He became a Lawyer and converted to Protestantism to keep his job. He was an outspoken critic of Prussian government and lost his job.
He became a liberal journalist in 1842 and moved to Paris in 1843 where he met his primary collaborator, Friedrich Engels. They were expelled from Paris in 1844 for being radicals and moved to Brussels where Marx developed his theory that capitalism would be replaced by communism.
Marx moved back to Paris in 1848 for a socialist revolution and published his pamphlet, The Communist Manifesto in 1848.
By 1850, Marx was broke and moved his family to London where he continued as a revolutionary dedicated to the defeat of capitalism and its replacement with socialism until his death in 1883.
Marx had published Das Kapital in 1867 and liberals began to read it along with the Communist Manifesto. By 1900, his writings were becoming popular with liberals in Europe and the US.
In 1917, the devastation of Russia after World War I created the conditions that enabled Vladimir Lenin to depose the Czar, abolish private property and establish a Communist government that became the Soviet Union
In the rest of Europe, socialist policies were adopted by nervous politicians to placate the masses. Europeans established government pensions, public transit, welfare and healthcare.
In the 1930s, the Great Depression in the US created conditions for liberal Franklin Roosevelt to create Social Security, the government pension plan.
In the 1960s, corporations, insurance companies and other special interests convinced liberal Lyndon Johnson to create Medicare, Medicaid and Welfare to advance socialist policies in the US. The US government also began its War on Christianity.
The Soviet Union dissolved in 1989 in sovereign bankruptcy and stopped supporting its “satellite countries”. Socialism failed.
Now, many European countries are in financial trouble due to the costs associated with the growth of their socialist policies.
The European Union was created in 1993 and established as a trade group, but became central government headquartered in Brussels. Politicians in member countries joined the EU voluntarily.
The UN enlisted the EU to allow millions of Muslim refugees from the Arab destabilization to seek asylum in member countries. Multiculturalism failed. The refugees are expensive welfare recipients, don’t behave, won’t assimilate, act like invaders and create terrorist attacks.
The devastation of the Second Muslim Invasion of Europe caused the vote in the UK to quit the EU. Other European countries are refusing refugees and may end up leaving the EU.
This latest attempt to advance Communism is failing. UN Agenda 21, based on the global warming hoax, was the roadmap to global governance and the disruption in the Middle East and Europe and the US were the result of UN Agenda 21 implementation.
Most of the countries on the globe have debilitating socialist policies and half of these countries are Communist dictatorships.
The Democrat Party is the primary support group advancing socialist policies and Communist Goals. Obama spent $1 trillion a year since 2008 and doubled the US Debt from $10 trillion to $20 trillion. Democrats have multiple financial landmines planted to create civil unrest, so they can further advance their socialist agenda.
Donald Trump became US President in 2017 and is reversing UN influence in US policy and is making spending cuts to reduce the size and scope of government to prevent the US from becoming a bankrupt socialist state.
