1848 political publication
1848 was the Year of Revolutions in Europe. It was also the year that Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels published The Communist Manifesto, proposing a new, classless society. As revolutions erupted across the globe, many turned to the ideals of Communism to replace old and fast-crumbling feudal systems. But Communism didn't take off everywhere. Harvard professor Louis Menand explains the successes and failures of Marx & Engels' vision since the publication of the manifesto. Louis Menand is the Lee Simpkins Family Professor or Arts and Sciences and the Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor of English at Harvard, where he also holds the title Harvard College Professor, in recognition of his teaching. He is the author of books such as The Marketplace of Ideas: Reform and Resistance in the American University and The Metaphysical Club, which won the Pulitzer Prize for History.

In the mid 1800's, members of the Communist League gave Karl Marx the task of writing The Communist Manifesto. It was published in London in 1848. That was over 170 years ago! So why do we still hear about Marxism when we turn on the news today, and what does the topic have to do with Christian home education?

Spencer offers advice for everyone -- while taking a shot at his co-host.
This program covers the origins, evolution, and current significance of "communism." After a brief history of communism as a utopian ideal of community, we treat Marx's presentation in the Communist Manifesto, and then communism's subordination to "socialism" to World War 1. That War changed everything. It split socialists everywhere into a Socialist Party and a Communist Party with key differences but also commonalities. When most European communist parties collapsed, socialism once again became the only major systemic left position. Yet the utopian longings expressed by communism left many on the left dissatisfied with modern socialisms. They searched for a possible solution, a new kind of communism located in workplaces organized as democratic, worker-coop.
The Communist Manifesto that was read on the House Floor THE 45 COMMUNIST GOALS AS READ INTO THE CONGRESSIONAL RECORD, 1963 Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963 Current Communist Goals EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES Thursday, January 10, 1963 Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America. At Mrs. Nordman's request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen: [From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen] CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS 1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war. 2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war. 3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength. 4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war. 5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites. 6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination. 7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N. 8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N. 9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress. 10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N. 11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.) 12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party. 13. Do away with all loyalty oaths. 14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office. 15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States. 16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights. 17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks. 18. Gain control of all student newspapers. 19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack. 20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions. 21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures. 22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.” 23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.” 24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press. 25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV. 26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.” 27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.” 28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.” 29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis. 30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.” 31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over. 32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc. 33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus. 34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities. 35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI. 36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions. 37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business. 38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat]. 39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals. 40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce. 41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents. 42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems. 43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government. 44. Internationalize the Panama Canal. 45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court. AMERICA HAS ALREADY FULFILLED 90% OF THEM… .
ORN David Weiss show notes 8/29/22 Flat Earth Dave Fotoforensics.com will tell you if a photo was made in Photoshop. Why do they tell us about their fakery? Is it because of the laws of karma? Hubble, James Webb telescope photos are all CGI – they're rubbish. NASA admits they don't have pictures of earth. We don't see stars at infinite distances. Comparisons of the size of Polaris to the sun and their distances from the earth. According to laws of physics, Polaris should not be visible. Heliocentrism is a prison for your mind. It's the reason for NASA. They create FEAR – false evidence appearing real. The space shuttle is a helium balloon. The external tank is a rocket-assisted blimp. Elon Musk's Starlink is proceeding one state at a time. It's connecting to ground towers, not satellites as purported. GoFast Rocket hits the firmament dome. We're at the last step of the Communist Manifesto. Listener asks what causes moon phases? In heliocentric system explanation, moonlight is reflected light from the sun. Moon phases are caused by the angle of the sun to the moon. Dave believes the moon is its own light, which comes from an electrical system. Electricity comes from the sun. Everything is electric. They can't have self-sufficient people knowing stuff, so they keep us as slaves. Whatever is beyond the shoreline of Antarctica is speculation. Military prevents anyone going below 60 degrees south latitude. Antarctica ice walls are real. The land is way higher than the water. What if we had multiple ponds, that are pieces of the plane? Closest star is 25 trillion miles away. Listener says theory of relativity is an accurate predictor and questions the assertion there is no gravity. Dave explains experiment involving electrostatic forces which disproves gravity. The “missing” far end in the photo of the bridge over Lake Pontchartrain is an example of convergence. Stars are entirely within our system. Are pulsing orbs of energy. Dave thinks they are sentient. Astrologers who woke up to flat earth get it. Georgia Guidestones had a hole which lined up with Polaris. But after 40 years, precession meant Polaris should have moved ½ a degree and not be visible through the hole. What about NASA employees? Are they all in on the deal? They're all compartmentalized and have well-practiced simulations. Where is earth? We are at the center of creation. We're all sparks of the Creator so it can magnify its experience. Look at FlatEarthDave.com. Get the Flat Earth Sun, Moon, & Zodiac Clock app. See friend finder to find like-minded believers.

Today we talk about how to write your personal manifesto and why it's worth doing. A personal manifesto is a declaration - even if simply a declaration to yourself - about what your core values and beliefs are and how you want to live your life. It's usually a combo of what you want to create in this life (intentions), a statement of your values, and also, because y'all here have a little - or a lot - of rebel in you, a somewhat rebel list of the way you want to live this life, what you want to do and how you want to do it. And I say rebel because it will ideally, call you to challenge the status quo and assumptions about how things “should” or “need” to be. A proper manifesto is also provocative. It gives you the ziji to make changes that you need to make so that you're aligned: your internal values are consistent with your external reality. When you take the time to sort this all out, you have a lot more clarity, and your manifesto can act as a sort of North Star, giving your life not just meaning, but direction. In Buddhism, we talk about taking refuge in the Buddha, dharma, sangha - it reminds us where we want to be, what our priorities are, and how we can come back home. A participant at a silent retreat I was on - a personal retreat - they said, “in Mandarin, the translation for “refuge” was coming home, and not just coming home, but coming home after a long journey.” That's a different energy, right? What if this manifesto is what guided you and could hold space for you, even after a long journey where you felt you had nothing left? A manifesto is a bit different from a business mission and vision, which are meant to unite people under a common vision or mission, whereas a personal manifesto is meant to ignite action. Light a fire under your ass (like Carl Marx's Communist Manifesto, right?). So it's not just a statement of what you believe in, but also a call to action, and a way of being you are devoted to. A manifesto helps you take action when you don't have motivation, because you have devotion. It helps you act in alignment even when the defection is hitting the oscillation. When you read it, it inspires you to live your purpose - full out. It can also help you teach people how to treat you What are the possible components of your own manifesto? You can start by asking yourself: What do you believe in?What do you want to do in this life?What are life's truths and wisdom that you want to share and that guide you in your own life? Notice that in the Rebel Buddhist manifesto (check it out here), there is no “As freedom seekers, we try to…” “Do or do not. There is no try.” (Yoda). It's, “As freedom seekers we…do x,y,z.” Not try to do x,y,z. So no try, ok? After writing it, what matters most is that we are living it. And when we're not, to use that moment of awareness not to shame ourselves, but to just get back on track. We get curious instead of judgmental, and then we get back on track. It's a compass, not a straight jacket. It's a way for you to drop conformist bullshit - or even the concept that there is a “normal” or an “average” to begin with - so you can get clear about who you are and what you stand for and live it. A way to ziji up! Socrates said, ”The unexamined life, for a human, is not worth living.” Writing your own personal manifesto has you examining your life until now as part of the process, and it's worth doing. So, rebels, What do you believe in? What do you want to accomplish in this life? What do you know to be true? Today get started with one line. What do you take refuge in that could hold space for you, even after a long journey, where you felt you had nothing left? What would help ignite aligned action for you? Start with just one line for now. You've got this!

The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx audiobook. Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels wrote their Manifesto in December 1847, as a guide to the fundamental principles and practices of Communists. The Manifesto also predicted the ultimate downfall of the capitalist system.
The Communist Manifesto was published in 1848 and has served as a guide for those who want to centralize and control others for years. But it's time to change the script on this old and destructive ideology. Mark Moss and Aleks Svetski are doing just that with their new book, The UnCommunist Manifesto: A Message of Hope, Responsibility and Liberty for All. On this episode of The Wiggin Sessions, Mark and Aleks join me to discuss their inspiration for writing The UnCommunist Manifesto, describing how Marxism justifies entropy and entitlement and what may have influenced Marx's worldview. Mark and Aleks explain why capitalism must be stripped from politics entirely and offer insight around money as a communication of value. Listen in to understand why Bitcoin is such an important, world-changing innovation (despite its volatility) and learn how we can promote a system of dynamic inequality that holds people accountable for the decisions they make. Key Takeaways What inspired Mark & Aleks to write The UnCommunist Manifesto How Marx defined communism and the 10 principles of Marxism Stasis vs. dynamism and what makes capitalism a dynamist process Why capitalism must be stripped from politics How Marx and Adam Smith drew opposite conclusions (despite having a similar training) How Marxism offers an academic justification for entropy and entitlement The disconnect between Marx's ideas of political freedom and economic control How politics is a way to determine how to operate economically The idea of dynamic inequality and why it's essential for people to move both up and down through the classes based on their decisions (not just up) How Mark and Aleks define money as a communication of value What makes Bitcoin such an important, world-changing innovation Alek's insight on the volatility of Bitcoin and its pricing in dollars Connect with Mark Moss & Aleks Svetski UnCommunist Charts from The UnCommunist Manifesto The UnCommunist Manifesto: A Message of Hope, Responsibility and Liberty for All by Mark Moss and Aleksander Svetski Mark on YouTube Aleks on Medium Connect with Addison Wiggin Consilience Financial Be sure to follow The Wiggin Sessions on your socials.

The Theology of Marxism, Session 3 Marxism is a theology, and its religion is Communism. That we have failed to understand this fact over the 175 years since Marx wrote the early drafts of what he originally called the Communist Confession of Faith and published in by the title The Communist Manifesto is indisputably one of the most damaging analytical errors in human history, if not the single worst. It's time to set the record straight. Marx laid out an evil theology, and the practice of his religion is a liturgy of death and destruction. To understand the Marxist theology, we have to understand its theological antecedent, which was laid down by the German systematic theologian, speculative idealist, and Hermetic alchemist Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel. His theology is a dialectical one, the father of what Marx turned into dialectical materialism, and it is the combination of two mystery religions. Hegel, building on Jean-Jacques Rousseau (Father of Leftism), Immanuel Kant, and others dialectically synthesized Hermetic alchemy and Gnosticism, hammered it into a Christianity-based metaphysical framework, and mislabeled it a "system of science." Thus we arrive at what has been variously called "Scientific Gnosticism," "Gnosticism in the Modern Era," and "Dialectical Leftism," which outlines a broad system of faith in man's necessary role as a transformer of reality into its utopian idealized state at the End of History. In this deep-diving presentation from The Theology of Marxism Conference, New Discourses (https://newdiscourses.com/) Founder James Lindsay (https://linktr.ee/conceptualjames) explains for the first time in decades and in unprecedented clarity how Rousseau and Hegel architected the seeds of a broad Dialectical Faith of Leftism that Marx codified into his own anti-human theology. http://sovereignnations.com Support Sovereign Nations: paypal.me/sovnations patreon.com/sovnations Follow Sovereign Nations: sovereignnations.com/subscribe facebook.com/SovereignNations twitter.com/SovNations youtube.com/SovereignNations rumble.com/c/sovnations instagram.com/sovnations/ minds.com/sovnations?referrer=sovnations parler.com/profile/sovnations © 2022 Sovereign Nations.

In February 1848 the Communist Manifesto declared, “The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win.” Only days later, the workers of Paris overthrew their king and ignited a revolutionary inferno that scorched the whole of Europe. In just a couple of months, the old absolutist powers of Europe […]
A Patron of Economic Update asks: "I recall having heard you say that Karl Marx never really talked much about the State because he wasn't all that interested in the State. People tell me their beef with Karl Marx is that he advocated for use of the State to enforce communism or socialism. When asked where in Marx's writings that he advocated for use of the State, they never cite to Das Kapital (because they've never read it) but always reference the 10 Planks of the Communist Manifesto. How would you respond to those people?"

Kenny and Andy dive into part 2 of the 1st Chapter of the Communist Manifesto: “Bourgeois and Proletarians”. In this section, Marx and Engels write about the working class and its potentially revolutionary role and ‘gravediggers' of Capitalism. But one question lingers over the entire episode, as Capitalism descends deeper and deeper into crisis, is the prospect of revolution becoming more likely or less?

In 1936, a pedophile homosexual named John Maynard Keynes published his General Theory, which attempted to attach a capitalist veneer to the fifth plank of the Communist Manifesto. Governments around the world have been printing money like it's going out of style ever since. The practical application of this pedophile's ideology is about to produce economic collapse on a scale never before seen, and we have the privilege of bearing witness to it. ...and yet some people believe that this is just an organic collapse of market capitalism. Nothing could be further from the truth. This is EPISODE 896 of So to Speak w/ Jared Howe!

Hello Interactors,Where, how, and when people work continues to shift. Meanwhile, scores of people are moving to urban regions in search of opportunities. Some of which are more accessible than others. It’s putting stresses on how cities plan, how we move, and what kinds of freedoms are afforded and to whom. But hidden in the complexities of societies are patterns of hope. As interactors, you’re special individuals self-selected to be a part of an evolutionary journey. You’re also members of an attentive community so I welcome your participation.Please leave your comments below or email me directly.Now let’s go…REMOTE CONTROLThe workplace will never be the same again. What it becomes won’t either. But don’t tell Elon Musk. He threw a temper tantrum last week accusing employees at Tesla of slacking off working from home. In a company-wide email he became the over-controlling parent and grounded everyone. He wrote, “Everyone at Tesla is required to spend a minimum of 40 hours in the office per week” and that they “must be where your actual colleagues are located, not some remote pseudo office.” He claimed had he not been on the factory floor “working alongside” his employees that Tesla would have “long ago gone bankrupt.” I’m sure every factory floor worker he has replaced by a robot might have something to say about that.Some work does require a physical presence. Teeth cleaning comes to mind. But there is something to coming together physically that is hard to replicate online. There are also many kinds of service jobs that require a physical presence, though some of those are getting replaced by robots. Last year, a Dallas restaurant turned to a Robot called Bella when they had trouble filling waiter jobs. The owner said, “They don’t complain and they’re happy to do it!” It even happily sings Happy Birthday.But even white-collar jobs require some together time. I heard one academic say he worked two years during COVID on a joint research project over Zoom. When the team finally came together physically, they accomplished more in a single day than they did in those two years. Every company from Tesla to Target are feeling the reverberations of pandemic induced workplace alterations. Even Microsoft, a company that has long envisioned the promise of hybrid-work, is struggling through a new rhythm and workplace model. Mandatory in-office strategies like Musk tried aren’t practical. Even senior leaders are choosing to move to remote locations. Meanwhile, some high-tech teams were already distributed around the world. Despite these trends, companies continue to build new office space. Cranes loom on the horizon all around Seattle. While some of these high-rises will be housing, much of it is office space. What will they do with all this space?I met a new friend last week who is trying to figure that out. She works as a product designer for a company headquartered in Rotterdam called MapIQ. They build software and services that allow companies to optimize the space they have. She’s been busy conducting research. She talks to employees, facility managers, IT departments, human resources, and corporate realtors who are struggling with a new workplace reality. She told me one of the most acute issues for facility managers is space utilization. These companies pay a lot of money to have attractive and effective workplaces. Seeing them empty is troubling financially but also psychologically. She said, “Employees are struggling to know when it is best to come to the office. They don't want to be the only one at home in a hybrid meeting and they don't want to be in an empty office either.”Facility managers are scrambling to find ways to make the most of what they have. She said one popular outcome is subletting workspace. But even subletters will only use it occasionally and sporadically. They use software and sensors to better manage who is using it, when, and for how long. This was not how these buildings were designed and not how these companies were envisioned to be run. MapIQ has identified five trends emerging in the workplace:The office as standard. Most all employees work four or five days a week in the office.Local hybrid. Most people work two or three days a week in the office.Remote friendly. Most employees are in the office only once or twice a week.Remote first. Working in the office is completely optional with no geographic requirement.Fully distributed. There is no office at all and everyone works wherever they want.The nature of work in the foreseeable future is decidedly different than the past. It will take some time for optimizations to emerge. Meanwhile, how will this affect our built environment and how cities plan? Our roads, rails, wires, and spires, boulevards, buildings, drains and ditches were all planned and produced with a certain permanency and predictability that surrounds our economies, societies, and psychologies. These features of the physical and social landscape were assumed to be towering rocks anchored and resolute. But it turns out it was a mirage. They are made of sand and the winds of the pandemic has created a sandstorm. What shape these forms of fortune take is unknown and possibly unknowable.The landscape of living amidst this storm is hard to predict and control. The best way to know what direction we’re headed is to look where we came from. Only then can we understand how we got here. A lot has changed in how and where we live. Since the end of WWII, the world’s population has more than tripled. Over half alive right now live in urban areas and nearly three-quarters will by 2050. North America is one of the most urbanized regions in the world. In 2018 82% of the population lived in urban areas. And it’s growing every day. Europe is 74% urbanized and their cities are also growing. Half of the world’s population lives in Asia and half of those live in urban areas.Not all regions grow at the same rate. The fastest growing areas are projected to continue to be in low-income and middle-income nations. Thirty-three of the fastest growing countries between 2000 and 2020 were in Africa. Twelve were in Asia. But urbanization is both a blessing and a curse. Access to better public health, nutrition, and education improves the lives of those who suffer most, but puts increased strains on housing, transportation, energy, and other infrastructure systems. This is having widespread, varying, and compounding impacts on all who live in urban areas. But these growing pains are not equally felt by all. Understanding these sensitivities will be necessary if we’re going to find ways to solve them.SUPER SIZING THE SUPER RICH WITH SUPERLINEAR WEALTHUrban scientists have found naturally occurring mathematical patterns in growing cities. They mimic power-laws found across a diverse array of cities just as they do across plants and animals. For example, as cities grow in population their GDP, number of patents, and productivity grow at a predictable scale. However, congestion, crime, and contagious diseases also predictably grow. Doubling the size of a city will increase wages, wealth, and innovation (as measured by number of patents) by roughly 15 percent. But so will garbage and theft. Population growth has a predictable superlinear positive and negative effect on urban areas. It’s the great paradox of urbanity.There are big advantages to scale. With each doubling of population there’s also a 15 percent savings in total length of rail lines, electrical lines, water lines, and roads. This sublinear effect predictably leads to a city of 10 million people needing 15 percent less infrastructure than a city half its size. It pays to grow.But these numbers, as predictable as they are, can also be misleading. Whenever population datasets get crunched and averaged the analysis ends up crunching the realities of the average person. Hidden in the convenient clustering of ‘low-income‘, ‘middle-income’, and ‘high-income’ are varying degrees, durations, and directions as diverse as those lived experiences of the people behind the numbers. This realization has led some of those same urban scaling researchers to scrutinize their own findings. Increased wealth disparities, for example, got them wondering. If wage growth is so predictable compared to urban growth, and more people are predictably moving to urban areas, why aren’t all wages predictably growing?They wondered if there are similar scaling laws that predict income inequality based on city size. How are incomes different among the rich and the poor compared to the size of the city? After adjusting for cost-of-living differences, are poor people in a big city better off than poor people in a small city? Are rich people richer the bigger the city?To answer their questions, they broke down income brackets into percentiles. Traditional economic inequality research looks at dispersed distributions across income or wealth. Meaningful individual differences are hidden in these distributions. What they found is the wealth of the poorest 10% scales almost linearly with population size. In contrast, the top 10% shows superlinear growth. This means poor folks moving closer to the city in hopes of becoming wealthier may find themselves to be continually poor compared to those in higher income brackets. The rich get richer, and the poor stay poor.They conclude that “much has been written about the apparent increasing gains of large cities, such as greater GDP, higher wages, and more patents per capita.” But in the end, “the increasing benefits of city size are not evenly distributed to people within those cities.” For example, they found the ratio of housing costs to income is a function of city population size. The poorer the income brackets, the greater the proportion of income is spent on housing. This results in sharp increases in costs with city size. Meanwhile, in the wealthiest brackets the proportion of income spent on housing stays level.So whatever superlinear growth in GDP, innovation, and wage growth that comes with increased city size is highly concentrated in the upper income brackets. Existing research in urban scaling and innovation points to empirical evidence that these gains are due in large part to the increase in social interactions and sharing of ideas. Larger and more diverse pools of people co-located in urban areas results in an explosion of creativity, opportunity, and resources. The accumulation of shared knowledge and passion only increases the potential for innovation.This theory is found in the work of economist Karl Polanyi. In his landmark 1944 book, The Great Transformation, Polanyi gives this concept a name: embeddedness – those who share a common social context have an embedded relationship that drives a desire to provide for one another. Stanford economic sociologist, Mark Granovetter, reaffirmed the idea in his oft referenced 1973 paper, “The Strength of Weak Ties.”And one of the most influential economists in the 20th century, Austrian turned American, Joseph Shumpeter, described these acts of economic invention and innovation as ‘creative destruction’. For every new innovation that brings increased wealth another must be destroyed or devalued. Capitalists celebrate it as the unfortunate inevitability of social and economic progress while Socialists deride it as the inevitable annihilating force of capitalism.Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels wrote in their 1848 Communist Manifesto that, “Modern bourgeois society, with its relations of production, of exchange and of property, a society that has conjured up such gigantic means of production and of exchange, is like the sorcerer who is no longer able to control the powers of the nether world whom he has called up by his spells… In these crises, there breaks out an epidemic that, in all earlier epochs, would have seemed an absurdity – the epidemic of over-production. Society suddenly finds itself put back into a state of momentary barbarism; it appears as if a famine, a universal war of devastation, had cut off the supply of every means of subsistence; industry and commerce seem to be destroyed; and why? Because there is too much civilisation, too much means of subsistence, too much industry, too much commerce.”This grim prognosis from one of Capitalisms only inciteful critics is, sadly, all too relatable these days. Marx would not at all be surprised to hear there’s now empirical evidence to back his 174-year-old theory. But he would probably also be shocked to see China rising as a global superpower by combining elements of Capitalism with Socialism. Markets seem to have a way of formalizing Polanyi’s notion of embeddedness. He believed we all have the desire and creative ability to contribute to each others success and well being as part of our livelihoods. It’s not just goods and services that need exchanged but also values, moral concerns, and relationships. But to do that we must remain connected.CONNECTING THE DOTS TO FREEDOMThose urban scaling researchers hypothesize that one of the reasons income inequalities are so pronounce and unfairly propagated in our wealthiest cities is because the various income brackets have become increasingly geographically and socially segregated. Like ecosystems, the less diversity there is the greater the propensity to collapse. These researchers warn that urban regions that “inhibit mixing between diverse populations, will underperform with respect to income scaling.” If lessening income inequality is a goal, the research suggests “cities that are better mixed, allowing diverse parts of the population to be exposed to one another, should be overperforming with respect to urban scaling.”Connecting diverse sets of people across urban regions seems a more productive, and fun, way to tackle income inequality than redistribution of wealth through a government program. Ricardo Hausmann is the founder and Director of Harvard University’s Growth Lab. They uncover international growth diagnostics and develop economic complexity research methodologies. In a recent interview he said,“In my mind, the real solution to inequality is not so much redistribution as inclusion – as incorporating people into the possibility of mixing what they are…that leads to a very different agenda for inequality reduction. Do you send people a check or do you connect them to the urban transport network?...Do you connect it to the labor market? Do you connect to the schooling system?”He was joined in this interview by J. Doyne Farmer. He is the Director of Complexity Economics at the Oxford Institute of New Economic Thinking. Farmer points out that when economists look at the distribution of productivity, they commonly use a statistical technique that lops off a chunk of a giant tail of the distribution curve that is seemingly inconsequential to their analysis. This gives them a distorted point of view of productivity. And to underline Hausmann’s point about the importance of diversity needed to be connected, he said, “that there's a huge diversity out there” hidden in the fat tails those distribution curves. He adds, “And we really have to cope with that because it's inherent to the economy.” The question is, how connected physically do people have to be, how often, and for how long to achieve optimal productivity gains? These are questions being asked by companies around the world and firms like MapIQ are there to help answer them. But how many of these companies are already segregating themselves from the socio-economic diversity of their headquarters, satellite offices, or shared urban and suburban workspaces?Arjun Ramani, a Stanford economist and journalist for The Economist, said last year in an interview by Leesman, a leader in workplace research, that “people are now willing to live an hour away in exchange for a bigger house, because they don’t have to commute in every day.” He believes it’s leading to the ‘donuting’ of cities which I mentioned may be occurring in Des Moines, Iowa. Ramani also reminds us that in the 1800s 40% of workers were working from home. He said, “working from home was quite common. Workers would go into a city or to a market to get raw materials and goods and return home to work – for example in the manufacture of clothes.”Today that just may be a 3D printer in a suburban garage or a rural toolshed, but the materials would probably be delivered to their door or flown in on a drone. But there’s no question some segment of jobs will require a more centralized physical presence. I’m not yet ready to have my teeth cleaned by a robot, though it looks like that also may be around the corner too. Even farming is moving toward robots.Regardless of what kind of job is available or desired or how much physical presence needed, there is little question getting more people connected – regardless of where they live – increases the odds of diverse interactions. My own experience tells me, and mounds of research supports, diverse collections of people and ideas yield unexpectedly miraculous outcomes. It’s not always easy or pleasant working with people of differing backgrounds, beliefs, and inclinations, but out of contention come good ideas.It's also hard to imagine how we become more connected amidst increasing geographic segregation, political polarization, religious ideology, and economic disparities. This may be today’s most perplexing social dilemma. It seems each opportunity to come together is met with an excuse to move apart. Meanwhile, there are powerful forces alive today bent on suppressing individual freedoms. And yet we live in a time when personal freedoms to choose where to live and where work are reignited. But those freedoms are not afforded to all which is an unjust outcome of an unjust history. And so the struggle continues.It’s sometimes hard to remain optimistic as the sand dunes of our institutions are shaped by the unpredictable storms of change. But hidden in the complexities of distribution curves, growing populations, and the shifting sands of urbanity are predictable patterns that offer us clues – kernels of clarity and certainty; pathways to pursue, and lessons to learn. It’s the certainty we need if we want to uphold our freedoms.When Polanyi wrote about the great transformation occurring in 1944 it was during a dark time. He started the book during the depression in the 1930s and had lived through political and economic upheaval in England. A world war preceded his writing, and the book was published during a second. He recognized the complexity of society and spoke of the freedoms that come with it.In the final chapter titled, Freedom in a Complex Society, he writes,“Uncomplaining acceptance of the reality of society gives man indomitable courage and strength to remove all removable injustice and unfreedom. As long as he is true to his task of creating more abundant freedom for all, he need not fear that either power or planning will turn against him and destroy the freedom he is building by their instrumentality. This is the meaning of freedom in a complex society; it gives us all the certainty that we need.” This is a public episode.

In this week's Book Club podcast, I'm joined by the writer China Miéville to talk about his new book A Spectre, Haunting: On The Communist Manifesto. China makes the case for why this 1848 document deserves our attention in the 21st century, why even its critics would benefit from reading it more closely and sympathetically, and why - in his view - the gamble of a revolutionary abolition of capitalism is not only possible, but well worth taking.

In this short series on the ideologies of communism, Dry Toast started with a review of the bible of Communism, the Communist Manifesto and then started an enquiry into the quotations of Mao Tsetung, Mao's Little Red Book. It is a collection of Mao's quotations over about a twenty year period some 70 years after the Communist Manifesto and should provide some clues as to the development of the movement over this time period. This is part 2 of 2 on the Little Red Book.We will next enquire into democracy and capitalism and end off with a bang as we dare to compare the two. Support the show
Shadi has been curious about whether he has diverged from the left since Bernie Sanders' campaign, so he invited the socialist thinker Daniel Bessner onto the podcast this week for a spirited discussion of first principles. Bessner is one of the most influential and important leftist intellectuals writing on foreign policy today. He is the Joff Hanauer Honors Professor in Western Civilization at the University of Washington and the author of Democracy in Exile. What followed was perhaps the most contentious episode in Wisdom of Crowds history. Of course, here at the podcast, we see deep difference as a feature and not a bug, so we hope you'll see this as an example of what spirited but civil disagreement might look like in practice. The fundamental question we wanted to ask was whether American hegemony has, on balance, been "good" or "bad" for the world. This is a question about a world that seems to have been lost. The unipolar moment is quickly coming to an end—that is, if it isn't already gone. Daniel argues that the decline in American power is both an inescapable reality and a net positive for the world. Shadi and Damir both disagree, but for quite different reasons. In Part 2 of our conversation, available here for subscribers, the guys dive even deeper into their disagreements over America's role in the world. If the status quo is anything but ideal, what exactly are the alternatives—and are those alternatives plausible? Damir, looking to press Daniel, suggests that the socialist vision for how the world will improve with an inward-facing Socialist America leaves too many questions unanswered. Shadi bristled at the suggestion of decreasing America's military footprint at the exact time when Russia and China are becoming increasingly aggressive. All the while, Daniel rejects the premise that it's in our interest to militarily aid Ukraine and would prefer that the U.S. take care of its own people and address its own moral disasters instead of pushing its pretend values on the world.

Last week, Governor Ron DeSantis and the Florida Department of Education announced that they had rejected 41% of textbooks from publishers for containing Critical Race Theory. I go over the examples disclosed by the state showing proof of the content. I also discuss how Critical Race Theory (CRT) derives from communism and the Communist Manifesto written by Karl Marx and Frederick Engles. Critical Race Theory is not being pushed because of racism, but rather the idea of a communist agenda and a push to eliminate the capitalist society of the western world. #RonDeSantis #CRT #CriticalRaceTheory #Communism #KarlMarx #FrederickEngles #CommunistManifesto While Communism had already been around, Karl Marx and Frederick Engle's claimed and defined the theory in 1848 with the Communist Manifesto. This ideology was a response to the growing industrial revolution which Max claims was a threat to the livelihood of the lower working class, due to advancing technology. Communism seeks to abolish private property, religion, family, and territories (towns, cities, countries etc…) The largest concern would be the abolition of the family. Marx believed the family structure was a result of capitalism and those family members were exploited as means of production. He believed that women were only viewed for production purposes and thought that families were formed to maintain capitalist ideology and to pass down wealth through inheritance. Inheritance is one of the primary enemies of a communist society. Furthermore, communism is threatened by the education provided by a parent to their children. Communism would make education for all children completely free and would indoctrinate them. -Similarly, we are seeing this play out at the moment with parents fighting the government about what is being taught to their children in school. CRT derives from communism and focuses on one class oppressing another. The state of Florida just released examples from the new math textbooks, showing CRT being used and illustrating how one group of people is racially oppressive over another, and trying to make children “aware” of their oppressive nature. This is a classic example of how to implement communist ideology on a young and unmolded population. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/-racist-florida-releases-examples-prohibited-topics-rejected-math-book-rcna25625 The Communist Manifesto https://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1848/communist-manifesto/ Essay written on the communist idea of family and abolition thereof https://www.csustan.edu/sites/default/files/History/Faculty/Weikart/Marx-Engels-and-the-Abolition-of-the-Family.pdf
On the heels of the outbreak of the tumultuous student movement in 1967, workers' uprisings erupted throughout Italy, bringing the struggle from the factories into the streets in a revolutionary movement that culminated in the "Hot Autumn" of 1969. This is the story of the rise of the New Left in Italy and the wave of reaction to it that set the stage for the Years of Lead. Includes interviews with Alberto Pantaloni, PhD in Historical Sciences and Documents, co-editor of Historia Magistra, and author of La dissoluzione di Lotta continua e il movimento del '77 and 1969: L'assemblea operai studenti: Una storia dell'autunno caldo, both recently published through Derive Approdi. Emanuela Scarpellini, Professor of Modern History at the University of Milan, Italy. She is the author of several books, including Material Nation: A Consumer's History of Modern Italy (2011) and Food and Foodways in Italy from 1861 to the Present (Palgrave, 2016). Michael Hardt, a political philosopher and literary theorist, best known for three books he co-authored with Antonio Negri: Empire (2000), Multitude: War and Democracy in the Age of Empire (2004), and Commonwealth (2009). The trilogy, in particular its first volume—Empire—has often been hailed as the “Communist Manifesto of the 21st Century.” Michael Hardt is a professor of literature at Duke University and a professor of philosophy at The European Graduate School / EGS.

The UnCommunist Manifesto by Aleks Svetski and Mark Moss: "Our goal was to change the axis of the “struggle." We wrote this book in the hopes it will be used as a central text in the struggle between Individual sovereignty and collective coercion we're seeing so evidently around us today. We emulated the format and length of the Communist Manifesto but re-wrote it to remind people to reach upward and become better versions of themselves, as opposed to classifying them into static groups and validating their desire to bring others down to their level. Our longer-term hope is that this text can be a beacon of hope, sanity, and sense in a world being swallowed up by the envy inherently justified by Marxist doctrine."

On this episode of the “Dr. Duke Show” we start with a Wisconsin teacher running for school board, who despite publicly admitting he loves the Communist Manifesto, has a deep respect for sex workers, and believes vaginal fluids are rich nutrients.
The Communist Manifesto is the most assigned economics book on US college campuses! In 1984, a Russian KGB officer, Yuri Bezmenov, author of Love Letter to America, in a one-hour presentation, reveals the KGB strategy to use our education system to replace the ideas of free enterprise and capitalism to teach ideas of social justice, equality and redistribution of wealth! Without knowing their true American history, students are easily brainwashed to hate our nation and bring it down! Trump's 1776 Commission to teach our true history and patriotism has been abolished by Biden.
