If you are not sure of your identity, you will keep changing how you describe yourself: Meet “Marxism”. Karl Marx himself went through several stages to figure out his thinking. All of this culminated in him sitting in the London public library for decades while living on handouts from Mr. Engels. Eventually, he got around to a vision of the world which was wholly critical and hate-filled. He had a “grand plan”.
“The Grundrisse is very wide-ranging in subject matter and covers all six sections of Marx’s critique of political economy (of which only one, the first volume of Das Kapital, ever reached a final form). It is often described as the rough draft of Das Kapital, although there is considerable disagreement about the exact relationship between the two texts, particularly around the issue of methodology.[3”]”
While Marx never really finished his work, as the Grundrisse shows, it is what came after that lays bare the internal failings. There were predictions that never came true. There were sets of ideas that fell away after some time. What was left was the rotten core many call “Marxism”. Even then, it took yet another figure to apply these ideas to the real world – that would be Vladmir Lenin. Even he had to spend many years refining his idea of Communism.
“Communism includes a variety of schools of thought, which broadly include Marxism, Leninism, and libertarian communism, as well as the political ideologies grouped around those.”
As a point of history, it should be noted that the Bolsheviks advertised themselves as Social Democrats. They changed to “Communism” once in power. Sneaky, eh? They went from believing in the democratic process to completely rejecting it and instead having the state own everything, and you own nothing.
However, it took some time, and someone of Stalin’s caliber to create the kind of terror and violence to finally create the irrational state of tyrannical control we know and love as communism.
On To Connecticut
The Communist Party USA (CPUSA) was founded September 1, 1919. The Connecticut Communist Party was founded in December 1919. That was quick. Why? Control of Connecticut politics was considered a high priority from the very beginning by the CPUSA. The argument can be made that a disproportionate level of resources were committed to Connecticut. It took a long time, but they have been remarkably successful in infiltrating people who are connected to the Connecticut Communist Party but making it not appear so.
The veil was dropped with a loud thud in December 2021, when U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal was found attending the Amistad award dinner, an annual event for the Connecticut Communists. He tried to walk it back by playing stupid.
OK, that was a federal official found to be friendly with communists. Overlooked was the Connecticut state senator who was also there. She made the same lame excuses to the same effect. We are not fooled. But not enough people are paying attention, hence the need to write this article.
Connecticut communists are all in on the gradualist approach to eliminating traditional American values, the U.S. Constitution and individual rights. No better cover than to rage against low wages for unskilled workers.
If anyone is practicing Marxism for the masses, it is the State of Connecticut. That statement is not made lightly. Considerable research shows there is a remarkable number of government officials and others in government who are linked by various means to the Connecticut Communist party.
