Exactly, and the leftists activists will not like the next income level. I prefer to listen to the communists themselves to shape an understanding of their desired outcomes. The Communist Manifesto makes it clear.<quoted text>
Yup , Linda and her ilk will not be happy until they confiscate all of the wealth from the evil super wealth and corporations. They will never accomplish this without disarming the people. After they get all they can there, then it will be on down the ladder to the next income level and so on until everyone in thus country is totally dependent on Government for everything. Finally, with no where else to turn for income, the Government will be bankrupt.
The idea that "subjects" (no longer citizens in a free country) will be "dependent" upon a benevolent government is deception. They will be dependent only upon their own labor as they are assigned "forced work" requirements in government agricultural complexes.
Read for yourselves: This is the prescribed order in enumeration for overthrowing the United States...Pay attention to article (8)
"THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO; SECTION II - PROLETARIANS AND COMMUNISTS"
"Of course, in the beginning, this cannot be effected except by means of despotic inroads on the rights of property, and on the conditions of bourgeois (Private business) production; by means of measures, therefore, which appear economically insufficient and untenable, but which, in the course of the movement, outstrip themselves, necessitate further inroads upon the old social order, and are unavoidable as a means of entirely (revolutionizing) the mode of production.
These measures will, of course, be different in different countries.
Nevertheless, in most advanced countries, the following will be pretty generally applicable.
1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.
2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
5. Centralization of credit in the banks of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.
6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state.
7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
8. Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country.
10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc.
When, in the course of development, class distinctions have disappeared, and all production has been concentrated in the hands of a vast association of the whole nation, the public power will lose its political character. Political power, properly so called, is merely the organized power of one class for oppressing another."
