The Communist Manifesto More Applicable in U.S. than the Constitution

Upon completion of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, one of the founding fathers of the United States of America, Dr. Benjamin Franklin was asked by an interested citizen, “Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?.” His reply has become famous in the annals of American history: “A Republic, if you can keep it.”

He said this because he knew all too well that a constitutional republic was a historically unique and treasured form of self-rule, and he also knew that the nature of government is to swiftly advance toward tyranny, no matter what rule set originally defined it.

Since inception, America had for many generations operated as a functional democracy, not a republic, which is notably different in that the ‘will of the majority’ supersedes the inalienable rights of the minority. This is a significant philosophical shift, albeit acceptable enough to Americans who still take pride in the ownership of a democracy, holding onto the belief that through the power of local, state and federal elections, the will of the people can be asserted over the will of a would be oligarchy of rich and powerful individuals.

So much energy is invested in maintaining the appearance of democracy in America today. This is especially true during an election cycle, and along with the media parade and firestorm of opinion slinging, there is little room for debate on the philosophical underpinnings of law, and of the survival of the U.S. Constitution. As we were sleeping through a great sea change in America over the last century, we have moved far away from even true democratic rule, and now our form of government is a far cry away from the original intentions laid out by the founding fathers.

Resentment towards communism and socialism is as American as apple pie, yet with little understanding of how our government actually operates, and little appreciation of how law has been slowly transformed throughout the years to favor the interests of the oligarchy, Americans really have no idea how close we’ve already come to resemble a Marxist state, governed by the ideaology set forth by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in their 1848 pamphlet outlining the 10 planks of the communist manifesto.
