    WE DEMAND THAT THE GOVERNMENT UNDERTAKE THE OBLIGATION ABOVE ALL OF PROVIDING CITIZENS WITH ADEQUATE OPPORTUNITIES FOR EMPLOYMENT AND EARNING A LIVING.

    THE ACTIVITIES OF THE INDIVIDUAL MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO CLASH WITH THE INTERESTS OF THE COMMUNITY, BUT MUST TAKE PLACE WITHIN ITS CONFINES AND BE FOR THE GOOD OF ALL ...

    WE DEMAND THE NATIONALIZATION OF ALL BUSINESSES WHICH HAVE BEEN AMALGAMATED (INTO TRUSTS).

    WE DEMAND THAT THE STATE SHALL SHARE IN THE PROFITS OF LARGE INDUSTRIES.

    WE DEMAND THAT PROVISION FOR THE AGED SHALL BE MADE ON A VERY GREATLY INCREASED SCALE.

    WE DEMAND A LAND-REFORM SUITABLE TO OUR NATIONAL REQUIREMENTS, THE PASSING OF A LAW FOR THE CONFISCATION OF LAND FOR COMMUNAL PURPOSES; THE ABOLITION OF INTEREST ON MORTGAGES, AND PROHIBITION OF ALL SPECULATION IN LAND.

    WE DEMAND AN AGRARIAN REFORM SUITABLE TO OUR NATIONAL REQUIREMENTS; THE ENACTMENT OF A LAW TO EXPROPRIATE WITHOUT COMPENSATION THE OWNERS OF ANY LAND THAT MAY BE NEEDED FOR NATIONAL PURPOSES; THE ABOLITION OF GROUND RENTS; AND THE PROHIBITION OF ALL SPECULATION IN LAND.

    ...THE STATE SHALL ORGANIZE THOROUGHLY THE WHOLE CULTURAL SYSTEM OF THE NATION . . . THE CONCEPTION OF THE STATE IDEA (THE SCIENCE OF CITIZENSHIP) SHALL BE TAUGHT IN THE SCHOOLS FROM THE VERY BEGINNING. WE DEMAND THAT SPECIALLY TALENTED CHILDREN OF POOR PARENTS, NO MATTER WHAT THEIR STATION OR OCCUPATION, SHALL BE EDUCATED AT THE COST OF THE STATE.

    IT IS THE DUTY OF THE STATE TO HELP RAISE THE STANDARD OF THE NATION'S HEALTH BY PROVIDING MATERNITY WELFARE CENTRES, BY PROHIBITING JUVENILE LABOUR, BY INCREASING PHYSICAL FITNESS THROUGH THE INTRODUCTION OF COMPULSORY GAMES AND GYMNASTICS. . . .

    (WE) COMBAT THE MATERIALISTIC SPIRIT WITHIN AND OUTSIDE US, AND ARE CONVINCED THAT A PERMANENT RECOVERY OF OUR PEOPLE CAN ONLY PROCEED WITHIN ON THE FOUNDATION OF "THE COMMON GOOD BEFORE THE INDIVIDUAL GOOD."

    -- From the "Twenty-Five Point" Programme of the German National Socialist Workers Party, authored by Adolf Hitler and others on February 24, 1920. (Konrad Heiden's translation in A History of National Socialism)

    Didn't the US Military "snuff out" these demands in 1945 before they reached the "blissful" shores of our "fair" country?????

    Yep, that head was "wounded as onto death" but it seems to be healing itself.

    Open your mouths and pray that it does not happen and voice loudly your objection to your representatives. Once fully arrived the road back would be extremely painful.

    Too many and more than enough to be greatly concerned.

    When the Pope visited in January of 2007 he preached against capitalism. I find it very interesting that we now have a President and Congress (plus some among us here on the BB) that is promoting blatant, naked communism.

    Like I said, more scare tactics and fear mongering from the right... It didn't work in the last election, what makes you guys think this will be any more effective today?

    No, it's more discernment of actions today from the observations of the past.

    Our last President supported socialism by nationalizing major industries. How can you not see this?

    So, where is the precious change then?! I never suggested that Mr Bush was anything different. Nor have I ever been blind to any of that.

    True to form you and LeBuick seek to derail a thread that is pointing to the President's hypocrisy by making me the issue. The issue is our national leadership taking us toward a socialist state, not any supposed blindness of mine.

    It would be interesting to compare these to the Communist Manifesto. Or to the democrat party platform.

    The precious change is we now have a competent president who is going to get us out of Bush's DEPRESSION.

    There is no issue, just fear mongering and scare tactics from the right. Obama won't make us no more socialist then any of our previous presidents.

    No doubt we've been headed that way for a while but Obama is taking to it a new maximized level. We'd better pay attention to what's happening around us. The "fear mongering and scare tactics" are being used successfully by him to get a lot of legislation crammed through Congress. To be concerned about is indeed right!
