>                   A point-by-point comparison
>    As part of their Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx and Frederick
>Engels in 1847-48 proposed the following ten goals:
>  1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents
>  of land to public purposes.
>  2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
>  3. Abolition of all right of inheritance.
>  4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
>  5. Centralisation of credit in the hands  of  the  State,  by
>  means  of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive
>  monopoly.
>  6. Centralisation of the means of communication and transport
>  in the hands of the State.
>  7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned
>  by  the  State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands,
>  and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance  with
>  a common plan.
>  8.  Equal  liability  of  all  to  labour.  Establishment  of
>  industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
>  9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing  industries;
>  gradual   abolition  of  the  distinction  between  town  and
>  country, by a more equable  distribution  of  the  population
>  over the country.
>  10. Free  education  for  all  children  in  public  schools.
>  Abolition  of  children's factory labour in its present form.
>  Combination of education with industrial production.
>    In 1992 and 1996, the Democrat  Party  of  America  published
>party  platforms  which  included  the  following  goals that are
>compared, point by point, to  the  ten  goals  of  the  Communist
>Manifesto as listed above:
>  1. "We will protect our old growth forests, preserve critical
>  habitats,   provide   a  genuine  'no  net  loss'  policy  on
>  wetlands."
>  2. "We must... make the rich pay their fair share in taxes."
>  3. [An inheritance tax that gives the State its share of  the
>  inheritance, has already been achieved.]
>  4. [Nothing applicable]
>  5. [The Federal Reserve has already been established]
>  6.  "We  will  rebuild   America   by   investing   more   in
>  transportation... and a national information network."
>  7.  "The Democratic  Party  insists  that  corporate  leaders
>  invest  in  the  long-term,  by providing workers with living
>  wages and benefits, education and training, a  safe,  healthy
>  place  to  work, and opportunities for greater involvement in
>  company decision making and ownership.  Employers  must  make
>  sure workers share in the benefits of the good years, as well
>  as  the  burdens  of  the  bad  ones.  Employers  must  offer
>  employees  the  opportunity to share in the profits they help
>  create. Employers must respect the commitment of  workers  to
>  their  families,  and  must work to provide good pensions and
>  health care...  The President and Vice President have created
>  a  brownfields initiative to bring life back to abandoned and
>  contaminated property by reforming outdated  regulations  and
>  providing incentives for cleanup."
>  8. [Nothing Applicable]
>  9. "It is time to reestablish the private/public  partnership
>  to  ensure  that  family  farmers get a fair return for their
>  labor and investment, so  that  consumers  receive  safe  and
>  nutritious  foods,  and  that  needed investments are made in
>  basic research, education, rural business development, market
>  development and infrastructure to sustain rural communities."
>  10. "Strengthening public schools."
>    To put things in the proper perspective, Section 8, Article I
>of  the  U.S.  Constitution specifically enumerates the powers of
>the Congress of the United States:
>  Section 8. The Congress shall have power to lay  and  collect
>  taxes,  duties,  imposts  and  excises,  to pay the debts and
>  provide for the common defense and  general  welfare  of  the
>  United  States;  but all duties, imposts and excises shall be
>  uniform throughout the United States;
>  To borrow money on the credit of the United States;
>  To regulate commerce with  foreign  nations,  and  among  the
>  several states, and with the Indian tribes;
>  To establish a uniform rule of  naturalization,  and  uniform
>  laws  on  the  subject  of bankruptcies throughout the United
>  States;
>  To coin money, regulate the value  thereof,  and  of  foreign
>  coin, and fix the standard of weights and measures;
>  To  provide  for  the  punishment   of   counterfeiting   the
>  securities and current coin of the United States;
>  To establish post offices and post roads;
>  To promote the  progress  of  science  and  useful  arts,  by
>  securing  for  limited  times  to  authors  and inventors the
>  exclusive right to their respective writings and discoveries;
>  To constitute tribunals inferior to the Supreme Court;
>  To define and punish piracies and felonies committed  on  the
>  high seas, and offenses against the law of nations;
>  To declare war, grant letters of  marque  and  reprisal,  and
>  make rules concerning captures on land and water;
>  To raise and support armies, but no appropriation of money to
>  that use shall be for a longer term than two years;
>  To provide and maintain a navy;
>  To make rules for the government and regulation of  the  land
>  and naval forces;
>  To provide for calling forth the militia to execute the  laws
>  of the union, suppress insurrections and repel invasions;
>  To provide for  organizing,  arming,  and  disciplining,  the
>  militia,  and  for  governing  such  part  of  them as may be
>  employed in the service of the United  States,  reserving  to
>  the states respectively, the appointment of the officers, and
>  the authority  of  training  the  militia  according  to  the
>  discipline prescribed by Congress;
>  To exercise exclusive legislation in  all  cases  whatsoever,
>  over  such  District (not exceeding ten miles square) as may,
>  by cession  of  particular  states,  and  the  acceptance  of
>  Congress,  become  the  seat  of the government of the United
>  States, and  to  exercise  like  authority  over  all  places
>  purchased  by  the consent of the legislature of the state in
>  which  the  same  shall  be,  for  the  erection  of   forts,
>  magazines,    arsenals,    dockyards,   and   other   needful
>  buildings;--And
>  To make all laws which shall  be  necessary  and  proper  for
>  carrying  into  execution the foregoing powers, and all other
>  powers vested by this Constitution in the government  of  the
>  United States, or in any department or officer thereof.
>The Constitution has not been  repealed  (at  least  not  by  any
>democratic process) and therefore is still the supreme law of the
>land. Yet with the possible  exception  of  the  fourth  and  the
>eighth  goals  of  the Communist Manifesto, Democrats have either
>achieved or implemented the goals of the Communist  Manifesto  in
>their  own  Party  Platform,  masked  by  NewSpeak  terms such as
>"fairness" and "opportunity."
>One  possible--and  very   troubling--interpretation   of   these
>documents is that we have been asleep at the switch and failed to
>preserve, protect, and defend  the  Constitution  of  the  United
>States against all enemies, foreign and domestic...
