Following the old Jacobin/Leninist/Stalinist/Maoist plan, Dan Agin at the HuffPo proposes writing up a list of enemies of the people and filling it with Republicans, those who have succeeded in business, and other non-Marxists in order to better prosecute the class-war when he and his comrades arise in glorious Marxist revolution.
The people of America do have foreign enemies, but they also have domestic enemies, people elected or appointed to public office to work for the public good but who work instead for some private benefit.
So the question is: Who are the real domestic enemies of the American people? Is it Senator Webb or President Bush? Is it John Murtha or Dick Cheney? Is it the West Virginia miner who has sons getting killed in Iraq or is it the millionaire who says his five sons are doing their share by helping him become president?
Who are the enemies of the people? Maybe it’s time for us to understand that we need to know who they are. Do you have an Enemies of the People list? Maybe it’s time to think about this and talk about it.
We Americans are not peasants! The United States was founded as a noble experiment, a country with no peasants, no royalty, only nobility. We don’t need a bunch of Marxist revolutionaries to protect us from the ownership class. We are the ownership class, all of us are. We are the nobility of this country! We are armed! We can speak freely! We are responsible for our own success or failure! That is how nobility has always worked. Don’t try to steal our nobility away, Mr. Agin! Don’t try to turn us into peasants, Mr. Agin! Don’t steal our freedom so we can be treated like disobedient idiot children! Go to Russia or Cuba or some other country that wants to play the class-warfare game!
Go sell your crazy Marxist/Fascist/Communist horse-feathers somewhere else, Agin, we don’t need your kind of crazy around here!
What America needs is a good post-glasnost de-Marxification project, just like the de-Nazification project that Eisenhower instituted to clean up Germany after WW2.
