Marxism on Trial: A Declaration
On this May Day on the 150th Anniversary year of the
publication of Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto we charge Marxism
to be a failed philosophy whose creed is ignorance and whose
gospel is envy.
We use the same words used by Winston Churchill over 50 years
ago when he saw the Iron Curtain descending over Eastern Europe.
In the late 1980's the curtain was raised and the people of
Eastern Europe and Russia were freed of Communism. Unfortunately,
nearly a decade after the collapse of the Iron Curtain Marxism
still dominates in America's Academia. We believe that ideas have
consequences. Furthermore we believe that to not call Marxism to
account for the crimes done in its name is to welcome a
repetition of history.
Therefore, we are announcing a Trial of Marxism. We are
calling on all those who have suffered under the jack boot of
communism to stand up and be accounted for. We are tired of
hearing the old cliche "that its a good idea too bad it
hasn't worked in practice." Marxism has been responsible in
the past century for 85 -100 million deaths and the wholesale
destruction of societies and cultures.
Today on May 1, 1998 we put Marxism on Trial for its crimes
against humanity. Visit our Marxism on Trial site at
