Why the Constitution is Better Than Marx

The United States Constitution enshrines a far greater political philosophy than anything Karl Marx ever dreamed of in his totalitarian ideology.

By James Lewis at American Thinker


n 1787, the Constitution proclaimed a political philosophy that has led to greater well-being and happiness for more people over more centuries than anything Europe’s totalitarians ever did. But precisely because the Constitution limits the greed of the power-hungry, it is always under assault. Every generation needs to understand that because human nature has not changed since 1800.

The Constitution is best defended by reading, by evidence and logic. It needs no other defense. The United States Constitution invites you to argue against it. It guarantees your right to do so without fear of retaliation. So go for it. Argue with it, and see what your thinking leads to.

In the last century, 100 million people died in concentration camps and basement executions because of the totalitarian ideology peddled by one Karl Marx.

The American Revolution spread freedom. Around the same time, the French Revolution brought Napoleon to dictatorial power. British thinkers like Edmund Burke were frightened by the tyranny, chaos, and suffering they saw across the Channel, and they conducted a long war against Napoleon. Napoleon proclaimed himself l’Empereur, and his bloody armies conquered nearly all of Europe. Over here, President and General George Washington just went home and was happy to leave politics behind. That’s the difference.

You don’t spread love, peace, and happiness by having the President of the United States bowing ostentatiously to all the tyrants of the Old World. You spread peace and happiness by explaining the Constitution and its philosophy to all who care to hear. If half the Marxist professors in our colleges bothered to read the Constitution, we could spread enlightenment around the world. Then all the people who live in tyranny could take care of their own power parasites.

This is what Karl Marx meant by his First Commandment: “First, Conquer the Organs of Propaganda.”  The schools and the media are the Organs of Propaganda.  Electronics make them ever more powerful.

Marxism is a foreign import into the United States, an infectious plague bacillus, but it has grown on our academic soil, which loves everything European and sneers at America. Our professors are supremely ignorant of history, maybe because their need to feel better than others makes it impossible for them to see the world as it is.
