5 Things Marx Wanted to Abolish (Besides Private Property)
All 5 of these are under assault, to say the least. This is not a coincidence. Marxism is alive and prospering inside of America, hiding behind the guise of "Progressivism".

“National differences and antagonism between peoples are daily more and more vanishing, owing to the development of the bourgeoisie, to freedom of commerce, to the world market, to uniformity in the mode of production and in the conditions of life corresponding thereto.”
