Senator Tim Kaine gave a speech on the Senate floor on June 16. He said “The United States didn’t inherit slavery from anybody. We created it.” Read the transcript here. Tim Kaine Speech Transcript: Says US Created Slavery, Didn’t Inherit It, June 16, 2020
I watch his speech and when I heard those words, my jaw dropped. I have followed this man for several years and found him radically anti-American. Since American’s haven’t been taught American History for decades, he could say ridiculous bromides like that and get away with it. I didn’t like him then and I don’t like him now! I am a former Soviet attorney and in addition to Soviet Law, I studied history and Marxism for four years at Law School and know that slavery is a global phenomenon of our world—no country escaped slavery. Unfortunately, in America, the issue of slavery provided Socialist Charlatans with a narrative to exploit the division between whites and blacks—ignorance has become a radical force fighting the political system designed and left to us by our Founding Father…
My Response to Senator Tim Kaine
Studying in Leningrad Law School at the time of Iron Curtain, I loved Marxism—it was the only information from the West. Any literature, books, magazines and newspapers from the West were forbidden under the Soviet Socialist regime. Marxism was a mandatory subject and we studied it for all four years of Law School. I knew Marxism pretty well. Yet, I didn’t like Marx for his militancy, though all his words had become axioms for me. Coming to the West, I found out a different assessment of his personality and his legacy. Of course, as the historical figure Marx was very controversial. Judge for yourself:
Karl Heinrich Marx was a German philosopher, economist, historian, sociologist, political theorist, journalist and socialist revolutionary. Born in Trier, Germany, Marx studied law and philosophy at university. Wikipedia .
Karl Marx (1818–1883) is best known not as a philosopher but as a revolutionary, whose works inspired the foundation of many communist regimes in the twentieth century. It is hard to think of many who have had as much influence in the creation of the modern world. Karl Marx (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
The Communist Manifesto, originally titled Manifesto of the Communist Party (German: Manifest der Kommunistischen Partei) is a short 1848 book written by the German Marxist political theorists Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. It has since been recognized as one of the world’s most influential political manuscripts. The Communist Manifesto: Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels … www.amazon.com ›
Marx’s theory of history is centered on the idea that forms of society rise and fall as they cause progress and later impede the development of human productive power. Historical materialism, also known as the materialist conception of history, is a methodology used by some communist and Marxist historiographers that focuses on human societies and their development through history, arguing that history is the result of material conditions rather than ideals. Wikipedia, Historical Materialism.
The last quotation from Wikipedia is exactly correct: history is the result of material conditions rather than the theory of such ideas as Socialism and Communism. As a historian and economist Marx had produced a very valuable study of history and the economy of capitalism. My first acquaintance with capitalism came from his Das Capital, we had to read and discuss it at Law School. The book was written in a very dry language was quite difficult to read, but I got an elementary knowledge of capitalism from it: capital, labor and money. The historical part of his theory and four stages of development civilization were also logical, understandable and clear to me then. Today, I see something discussible in his presentation if not wrong and dishonest.
Slavery has no Color
I never read this document in Law School —Modules on Stages of Economic Development. Soviet professors had taught me and Marx’s four stages of economic development were an authority for me. Now living in America, and having the document in front of me gave me the opportunity to discuss it. I agree with the quote from Wikipedia—human productive power is the force that develops civilization rather than fallacy, a fraud with utopian concept of Socialism/Communism. Here is the document:
Introduction to Karl Marx, Modules on Stages of Development. ACCORDING TO MARX, human civilization has manifested itself in a series of organizational structures, each determined by its primary mode of production, particularly the division of labor that dominates in each stage. 1) The tribal form…
The document lists four stages of socio-economic development of civilization: 1) The tribe form, 2) “primitive communism, 3) Feudal or estate property, and 4) Capitalism.
The tribe form… “…During this stage, it is also possible to see a slave culture established, particularly as the population increases, leading to “the growth of wants” and the growth of relations with outside civilizations (through war or barter). With slave culture, we see the beginning of class society.” The given part of the first tribe stage clearly presents the ties of the tribal form to slave culture, indicating the beginning of economic development of civilization. Considering Marx’s design to show the changes in the human productive power of the stages, doing that, in fact, Marx verifies slavery as a beginning of socio-economic development of civilization and in this he was right.
Slavery has no color—there is no country in the world that has escaped slavery as economic development of civilization. Slavery is a global phenomenon. For your information, slavery was abolished in Russia at the same time that it was abolished in America. Republican President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation and payed a dear price for that—he was assassinated. Yet, the Republican Party has been fighting for freedom and liberty of the black community since.
Race and Policing in America
Policing in America is a hot topic all over the country. The conversation is even considering completely defunding the police. Yet, nobody talks about the history of black race. This is the reason I deliberately started a conversation about development of our civilization in the preceding paragraphs. In this part of his study, Marx was right—civilization was developed in four stages. It took five hundred years to develop Western civilization in Europe. America is a part of European civilization consisted of a homogeneous population. African-American migrations—both forced and voluntary—forever changed the course of American history. It is not a matter of color it is a matter of civic literacy brought to us by four stages of civilization for centuries. These developments were not experienced by the black community in America and as a result both sides are suffer.
There were both white and black slave owners and the black slaves were brought from the first stage of civilization to the third or fourth stage into American society. As a result, they missed the centuries of civic literacy teaching and economic development. I am surprised by some talented black individuals who did succeed, but the vast majority of blacks had not, they had missed the centuries to learn and experience the socio-economic development of our civilization…
Moreover, the black community had been attacked by Socialist Charlatans since the 1960-1970s. It was another obstacle to prevent them from succeeding—the ideological inculcation “to divide and conquer” by the Russian Security operatives-agitators. Writing about them, I use the term KGB. Don’t be surprised by “Black Lives Matter,” using propaganda, full fledge force and intimidation, the major methods of Socialist Charlatans. Please, read here my two preceding columns with documents to understand the dangerous predicament in America today.
Under these circumstances to hear the Democrat Sen. Kaine’s statement: “The United States didn’t inherit slavery from anybody. We created it” made me sick. It is a sign of deep ignorance if not treachery. To expose some Stalinist Socialist Charlatans in America, I need a separate column, there are hundreds of them confronting our political system to implement what we know as fraudulent Socialism. I’d rather continue Marx’s presentation as I found dishonesty and some wrongs in it. For your information Karl Marx was a correspondent on the New York Tribune. Marx’s principal earnings came from his work as European correspondent, from 1852 to 1862, for the New-York Daily Tribune.
The man who is writing for an American newspaper is supposed to know American history. If you go to his second stage “primitive communism” you wouldn’t find even an elementary knowledge of history. For me “primitive communism” was established by the Plymouth Colony and William Bradford (1590-1657) a founder and longtime governor of the Plymouth Colony. “For many years, the story of the first failed commune of Plymouth Bay was part of the collective memory of American students. But Progressive Education found that story unhelpful and it has fallen into obscurity.” Jerry Bowyer, Forbs, Occupy Plymouth Colony: How A Failed Commune Led To Thanksgiving.
Jerry Bowyer is right, we are dealing with Dems-Progressives—an army of Stalinist Socialist Charlatans who infiltrated our Universities and created one-party campuses. Unfortunately, nobody is doing anything to stop it. They are using Marx’s name with no knowledge of the utopian theory itself. They have been inculcated since the 1960-70s and are not interested in truth, but instead fight for power– they are the leaders of Antifa and Black Lives Matter-terrorist organizations. They can be exposed only with knowledge of the fallacy of fraudulent Marxism, Socialism and Communism. We must do it, otherwise the American Constitutional Republic is doomed…
I have no a direct answer to why Marx did not use the Plymouth Colony. There are two explanations why he didn’t use the failed communism of Plymouth Colony in his Modules. He didn’t know America’s history, or he invented a fraudulent theory for his personal agenda, to become famous and get married to the rich girl he was in love, Jenny von Westphalen. As the theorist of the utopian future Socialism and Communism, Marx has waged a war against mankind, which is going on today in America and across the world…
Maybe Karl Marx was the first Socialist Charlatan?
