Karl Marx at 200: His Lethal Legacy Lingers

Edward Hudgins, American Thinker, May 5, 2018

In his name, over 100 million people were murdered.  May 5, 2018 marks Karl Marx’s 200th birthday, and his profound errors still smolder and threaten new conflagrations.

Marx was born into a Europe transforming into a modern, industrial society.  Individuals were leaving ancestral villages and farms for growing cities and their seemingly dehumanizing factories.  Incredible wealth was being created, but would the factory workers benefit from their labors?  What did the future of this emerging new world hold?

History as class conflict

Marx posed as a “scientific socialist,” explaining the past and prophesying the future.

Marx was a radical materialist.  He asserted that history is a class conflict based on economic forces.  People’s ideas, what Marx called “phantoms of their brains,” are not the drivers of our destinies.  We are simply the pawns of the factors of production and distribution of wealth.  We don’t make our tools so much as our tools make us.

California school district says parents can’t pull kids from new LGBT sex-ed

LifeSiteNews, April 19, 2018

ORANGE COUNTY, California, April 19, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – California is about to implement new abortion- and homosexualty-promoting sex education lessons, and one school district has told parents they have no choice but to expose their children to them.

California enacted the California Healthy Youth Act in 2015, but only now are its controversial provisions starting to take effect in classrooms. Under the auspices of health, the law says it will equip students to develop “healthy attitudes” on “gender [and] sexual orientation,” among other things. It also says it will inform students about the “effectiveness and safety of all FDA-approved contraceptive methods,” and facilitate “objective discussion” about “parenting, adoption, and abortion.”

RedState contributor Kira Davis, a resident of Orange County, California, warns that among the teaching materials approved for use under this law are a study guide for the transgender children’s book I Am Jazz, as well as a “sexual health toolkit.” Continue reading

Goodbye, ‘Boy Scouts’; hello, ‘Scouts BSA’

By Rick Moran, American Thinker, May 2, 2018

Were you ever a Boy Scout?  Why, you misogynistic creep!  The very name drips of anti-women venom.

Never mind.  The Boy Scouts of America have changed all that.  From now on, the iconic name “Boy Scouts” will be replaced with the more gender-neutral “Scouts BSA.”

Associated Press:

Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh said many possibilities were considered during lengthy and “incredibly fun” deliberations before the new name was chosen.

“We wanted to land on something that evokes the past but also conveys the inclusive nature of the program going forward,” he said.  “We’re trying to find the right way to say we’re here for both young men and young women.”

I’m sure it was a lot of fun destroying an institution set up to help boys become men – sort of like pulling the wings off flies, only not as messy. Continue reading
