Excellent essay. Over and over Marxism has failed, but it has been revived by leftists who want use government to have power over the rest of us.

Arguably Communism was invented by Marx and Engels as Socialism 2.0 when it became obvious in the 1840s that the workers in Europe were never really going to embrace real egalitarian socialism. Communism was violent revolution to install totalitarianism that communists falsely promised would lead eventually to socialist utopia. It was a total lie from the start.

Thank you for your encouragement and historical information. I just finished reading The Communist Manifesto," which I think confirms exactly what you are saying.

Instead of thinking yourself a victim, ponder the victim-hood of the sinless God-Man who deigned to come down to earth in the form of a man and suffer and die on a cross to wipe away our sins that we could attain salvation. That is how much he loves humanity. Now, THAT is a victim!

Marxists aim to abolish all religion. In most western nations, including the U.S., Marxists are doing that by infiltrating churches and destroying them from within. I recommend the new documentary film "Letter to the American Church" based on the book by the same name by Eric Metaxas.

Yes, since Marxism came to exist its targets have been Liberty and Christianity.
