California and Marx

California government has tried virtually everything to mold itself into a Marxist regime.

The Golden State is what Obama wants America to be.  

The article makes the point that Arnold tried, back in 2005 to get things done, including reducing union power and capping state spending. He got blasted. Now, he just wants to be friends with everyone. His state now lies is shambles, unable to even pay for the paper for tax receipts.

The legislature in Cali spent its way to doom. The government sector grew out of control. Expect more of this for our whole country. The stimulus bill is only the beginning.

In the late 1840s, Karl Marx sat in the dusty library basement working on his manifesto. Charged with the electric writings of another Young Hegelian, Ludwig Andreas von Feuerbach , who like Marx wanted to provide mankind with a framework for existance in a godless universe, Marx saw economy as a zero-sum game. The rich could only be rich if the poor were poor.

Lenin, Stalin,  and Mau would not have come to power without Marx.

Indeed though, Marx was a man of his times. What Charles Dickens said to children, Marx said to revolutionaries, and those acolytes commenced to wage war on capitalism, which is the economic default of freedom. Now, California legistators have taken the mantle of populist revolutionaries.

We’re spending our way to oblivion.

    Karl Marx called children “useful idiots”. Charles Dickens saw children as the bright future whereas Marx saw children as molding clay. Our own educational system claims one but also dabbles with the other.

    I don’t think “socialism” is the cause of California’s plight. However, you do make a correct point about spending.

    Money spent has to come from somewhere and there seems to be little in the way of effective planning regarding where such money is going to come from. Saying that the government will supply the money just pushes the problem back: where will the government get the money?

    Like one person in the linked article says, people keep asking for things and don’t want to pay taxes. I actually do think socialism there is partly to blame. The state is paying too much money for too many things. The government gets money by taxing, then it spends the money. Tax too much–business goes away; there are other states that tax less and that’s where the businesses go. No business= no tax money. The state is spending at catastrophic rates, and a lot of money to the state seems to be a socialist adgenda. In any case, everyone–feds and states have to cut back–and people won’t like it.

    But this is the downfall of Democarcy. When the people figure out they have free access to public coffers–it’s a run on the bank.
