“Marxism is all about the destruction of capitalism. And no entity has contributed more to the destruction of American business than labor unions.” – Jonathan Cousar from FreedomTorch.com

Happy Marxist Indoctrination Day (aka “Labor” Day) – by Jonathan Cousar – freedomtorch.com/blogs/3/5165/

Excerpt:

>>>>>>> Actually, labor day should be called Marxist Indoctrination Day. It’s roots are deeply anchored in Marxist thought.

Karl Marx published his Communist Manifesto in 1848. The first Labor Day in the United States was observed in 1882 – just 34 years later. And guess who promoted and sponsored this first Labor Day? The CENTRAL LABOR UNION of New York!

Just like now, even then the labor unions had already become front organizations for the budding Communist movement. Under the guise of “helping labor”, the labor unions were nothing more than organizations promoting Marxist ideas like the “workers’ struggle”, “worker exploitation”, the “unfairness” of the capitalist system, and the “inequality” of capitalism. These are central tenets of Communist/Marxist thought and the labor unions were the “community organizers” working to gin up hatred towards capitalism. They were the actual muscle fueling and promoting the Communist movement. And they still are…….

………..If you look at the history of the “labor movement” you’ll see it is all about taking the theoretical aspects of Marx and putting them into real-world practice.  That’s why labor unions shed no tears when they put a company or industry completely out of business.  Or when they make business so expensive to conduct that U.S. companies are forced to move to more business-friendly places – like CHINA!  Marxism is all about the destruction of capitalism.  And no entity has contributed more to the destruction of American business than labor unions.  <<<<<<<<<

  1. Yep, you gotta miss the days when when poor children were routinely employed in factories because their hands were small enough to reach quickly between moving metal parts, and when having a few Americans–say, more than 3,200 in a single year–die in mines was no big deal. And when when a person could be fired–or shot or lynched–for protesting dismal work conditions, while each individual had forced to negotiate with his/her own employer–while subject to being being fired at will, if the employer thought the worker was asking for too much, or might be a “problem” in any way. Damn commies, anyway.

    • James McPherson –

      Thank you for your comment. And, thank you for visiting http://www.moralmatters.org

      I will not dispute with you poor working conditions of the past. Nor will I attempt to elevate unions as a be all and end all as you may be suggesting and / or intimating. Nor, will I dispute that because of unions, better working conditions for the employed, more quickly evolved, because of their influence.

      Having stated the above – I thought the commentary by Jonathan Cousar from FreedomTorch.com was, very telling. Unions in our day and age have become a huge problem, for a number of viable reasons. Not so much union workers, though. I’ve never begrudged them. I have been a union worker, myself, in my gainful employement years. That was when I was “forced” to join a union. Now, that’s a separate issue in itself, and the mandatory dues, etc. – the forcefulness of unions which in essence, makes them – and, especially their leaderships, essentially, anti capitalistic [free enterprise].

      Finally, using your line of argumentation, why would there be anymore need for unions today, with all the US government agencies there are, to enforce this and that?

      Perhaps, the author of the excellent commentary which I’ve posted, may want to weigh in, as to your comment…..

  2. I’ll dispute poor working conditions of the past with you. Did you know that when Karl Marx wrote his Communist Manifesto in 1848 – decrying the outrageous working conditions of British industry… that he had to go back to reports of working conditions all the way from 1810 in order to find conditions bad enough that people in 1848 would have been shaken by it. And yet he didn’t tell people he was using reports from nearly 40 years in the past. He presented his data as current.

    Do you know why he had to dig 38 years into the past to make it look like conditions were so bad? Because things were improving so rapidly for British workers, on their own, that if he had used 1848 data, no one would have been persuaded that things were that bad.

    FACT: When industries flourish, they always improve working conditions over time for their employees. (Competition forces them to whether they want to or not). And all without any mandates from unions or government. It’s a fact of the free market system. And it was happening in Britain in the 1800s before unions ever came into existence.

    • Jonathan Cousar –

      Thank you for gracing http://www.moralmatters.org; taking time out of your busy day, managing and monitoring your wonderful website of http://freedomtorch.com/ to respond to James McPherson’s comment.

      I find increasingly that those who are hesitant to give credit to those who start businesses in America’s free enterprise environment; that they are the same who would agree with the false notion of Obama: “You didn’t build that.”

      And, like liberals, Marxists have a difficult time telling the truth. It almost seems that these two ideologies are first cousins. No wonder Obama is so comfortable with the Democratic Party!

    • Amen! Most Americans don’t know how Communist we really are.I have worked and prospered in this great nation with No Union. I was hounded to join the pool service union and fervently declined. I do not need their rules REGULATIONS, “lunch breaks ” and poor work ethic in my life. I’m a free market Capitalist and I’m DAMN proud of it. No man is free in a union. Unions are a pyramid scheme. LIVE BETTER “at the expense of everyone else” – WORK UNION.

      • Jon –

        Excellent comment. You reminded me with your comment that I forgot to post a Labor Day article, this year, 2013! Perhaps, if it does not slip my busy and cluttered mind, I will highlight your quote and post a new article highlighting your substantive comment!

  3. “I’ll dispute poor working conditions of the past with you.”

    You have every right to do so, of course, but I said nothing about Marx or industrial Britain. I was talking about the United States when I made reference to 3,200 mining deaths in a single year. And perhaps you’ve read “The Jungle?” PERHAPS conditions would have improved without unions–but not nearly so quickly.

    “why would there be anymore need for unions today, with all the US government agencies there are, to enforce this and that?”

    Two reasons that come quickly to mind: First, many Republicans would like to do away with those agencies, and many of the agencies have had cuts. Second, collective bargaining rights is the most important function of unions, giving people the power to bargain better for what’s in their own best interest, rather than each individual being forced to negotiate with his/her own employer–while subject to be being fired at will, if the employer things the worker is asking for too much, or might be a “problem” in any way.

    “like liberals, Marxists have a difficult time telling the truth”

    Nice ad hominem, which reflects more on you than on liberals. And though I’m not an Obama supporter, of course like most conservatives you’re taking his “didn’t build that” out of context: http://www.cnn.com/2012/08/31/politics/fact-check-built-this/index.html

    • James –

      I think that Jonathan made an excellent point which you seem to conveniently deflect. Jonathan mentioned that Karl Marx dishonestly charted poor working conditions, documenting some 40 years past history. In other words, he did not address the present reality. So, it is, with those who attempt to radicalize society and culture. They will grab anything and everything to make their point and foist their radical ideology upon the world.

      Secondly, you not only deflect what Jonathan stated; you went on to change the course of discussion. You disavowed the principled argument point which Jonathan was making, by (actually) saying (in so many words) that that principle did not apply in the United States.

      Then, you went on to answer my point that government agencies regulate this and that so that there isn’t the need for unions to do so. You mention that funding is being cut. So? So what? Does the amount of money thrown at enforcement and code always insure proper and safe working conditions? I think with your response, you make it clear that you desire unions and union organization to reign supreme. In your mind they must be in control; even if that means operating against traditional free enterprise capitalism.

      Finally, the big problem with union bosses and their pushy unions, is that they’ve made themselves loathsome in the eyes of normal rank-in-file working Americans. It’s as if they can’t keep up with reality; but, only to cram their own little union worlds down everyones’ throats.

      Jonathan is spot on in his one comment response. Unions are political. They funnel the forced union worker dues to socialist politicians. Hence, unions really aren’t (anymore) about realistic working conditions for the American worker; but of political expediency and proliferation of a socialistic ideology.

      • By the way the reason I brought up Marxism is because unions were founded in Marxism. They were founded for the specific purpose of being the physical arm that would bring the “intellectual” tenets of Marxism to the streets. I know, I know you think that’s ridiculous James… but go read the history of labor unions. You’ll see they were founded just 12 years after the publishing of Marx’s Communist Manifesto. You’ll see that from the very start their purpose was to cause chaos, disorder and upheaval to our economic system. They had no more interest in saving the “worker” than a capitalist has in saving Marxism.

        They’ve ALWAYS been about overthrowing the capitalist system – from their very inception. That’s why they never mind putting a company out of business. Or making it so costly to do business that whole industries have to move offshore. (redistribute the wealth from evil America to third-world China, Brazil and India and eat at America’s foundations in the process).

        Nathan, the only exception I would take to your otherwise spot on comments, is when you said “unions really aren’t (anymore) about realistic working conditions”. I take exception with the word “anymore”. They NEVER were about working conditions! Working conditions are only the guise they use to make their anti-capitalist ideology somewhat more acceptable to the poor uninformed working man and woman. But most working men and women are wide awake to this – which is why when they live in states where they are able to choose – they almost always choose to go NON-UNION! Even the “workers” don’t want anything to do with their so-called protectors.

        WAKE UP JAMES!

        • Jonathan –

          Thank you for the correction. Upon further thought; I agree. It is, as you say:

          “They [unions] NEVER were about working conditions! Working conditions are only the guise they use to make their anti-capitalist ideology somewhat more acceptable to the poor uninformed working man and woman. But most working men and women are wide awake to this – which is why when they live in states where they are able to choose – they almost always choose to go NON-UNION! Even the “workers” don’t want anything to do with their so-called protectors.” – Jonathan Cousar – http://www.freedomtorch.com

  6. “collective bargaining rights is the most important function of unions, giving people the power to bargain better for what’s in their own best interest”

    So if that’s their most important function – WHY ARE THEY SO HEAVILY INVOLVED IN POLITICS!!!??? Why they spend hundreds of millions of dollars to elect socialist democrats to office? Why do they spend so much of their time and money trying to get certain politicians elected instead of representing their membership to the employers???
