Marxists mad at having to pay to visit Marx’s tomb



You can’t see the body inside his tomb, so there’s no way to know whether Karl Marx is spinning in it, but his millennial followers are incensed that they’re having to pay to worship at the shrine of modern communism’s founder.

Marx, interred at London’s Highgate Cemetery, gets plenty of reverential visitors — if, that is, they are willing to cough up the £4 fee.

Many aren’t, for obvious reasons. At the very least, though, charging visitors has opened up a ridiculously pedantic debate among Marxists as to whether the fee is acceptable within the framework of their overarching economic philosophy.

Here’s one Marxist visitor, Ben Gliniecki, speaking to The Wall Street Journal:

“Personally, I think it is disgusting,” the 24-year-old political activist said. “There are no depths of irony, or bad taste, to which capitalists won’t sink if they think they can make money out of it.”

But then here’s another Marxist, Alex Gordon, on why the fee isn’t hypocritical:

“Marx believed that labor should be rewarded, he didn’t believe that you could achieve a classless society simply by refusing to pay for things,” he said.

“He wasn’t a hippie, let’s put it like that.”

Marx bought his cemetery plot and was buried there following his death in 1883. His grave is adorned by an iconic bronze bust, along with the inscription “workers of all lands unite.”

“It’s such a bourgeois monument,” one American visitor told The Journal.

“I turned around [and saw it] and I was like ‘Oh, come on.’”

The Club

Posted By: Vickyon: October 24, 2015In: Economic Development, FeaturedNo Comments

In an article titled, “Boss Tweed” and the Tammany Hall Machine, the author wrote:

Tammany represented a form of organization that wedded the Democratic Party and the Society of St. Tammany ( started in 1789 for patriotic and fraternal purposes) into an interchangeable exchange. The weave of city politics was the triangulation of the Mayor’s office, the Democratic Party and the social club organization.

In the modern edition of Tammany Hall for All, the Democrats under the Lyndon B. Johnson Administration set up the framework that provides the pathway to federal money (tax dollars) for “The Club”. That path to the money provides the draw for local public officials and business – including non-profit businesses. The structure is essentially a cell with the nucleus being the District Economic Development Corporation recognized by the Economic Development Administration.


The organization of the machine is that there are multiple counties in a district and the districts are organized into a regional association called the Idaho Association of Counties (IAC).

For purposes of regional representation, IAC groups Idaho’s 44 counties into six geographic regions called IAC districts.” IAC website

The Idaho Association of Counties is where the real power in the state resides. As you can see from the cell structure of “The Club”, elected officials are only one side of the triangle and their representation in “The Club” is distributed as you will see farther down. The other sides of the triangle include member businesses and member non-profits. The following is a quote from the Idaho Region IV Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) plan for 2014-2019. [Side note: if you look at their data graphs, also note the fact that the source of their data is the American Community Survey data. It’s not mandatory even though they tell you that it is. It’s self-reporting to the government so the data is automatically suspect.]

“As a member-driven, private, not-for-profit 501(c) 3 organization, RIVDA is governed by a 25-member Board of Directors comprised of local elected officials and representatives from private industry, labor, agriculture, higher education, commerce, finance, minority businesses and community organizations.”

It doesn’t matter that the quote came from the Region IV CEDS. It applies to the other five districts as well. The organizational structures are virtually the same.

Idaho Association of Counties – Organizational Structure


Notice on the chart above in the box on the right hand side, one of the Board Members is the Chairman of the Risk Management Program ICRMP. The ICRMP is the Idaho Counties Risk Management Program. The associated members of the counties established their own casualty and risk pool. In other words, they established their own insurance company. Membership is not limited to the counties, cities and ‘special districts’ can join as well.


Associations of Associations of Associations


National Associations are lobbyists for laws, regulatory authorities, programs and federal funding.

The entire structure beginning with the collectivization of public officials across jurisdictional boundaries is a political machine that exists to serve themselves and their constituents that are the member businesses and the associated non-profits. Non-profits may have clients who have needs but first and foremost, the non-profit is a business in the services industry and the status of non-profit just relates to the accounting rules for their income. That’s it.


The voters are irrelevant to this political machine because the power of the machine does not derive from the voters in any direct way. The distribution of elected officials on the Board of Directors ensures that they can operate in the interest of their members without regard for citizen/taxpayer interests.

Their spendable cash comes from membership dues (paid for by the constituents of the counties) and from federal grant writing and from contributions that include Foundations. It also comes from planning projects that include federal programs such as “sustainable development” which is Agenda 21. Local elected officials may disagree with the programs but are really powerless to stop them once the political machine moves in a particular direction and they have moved in the wrong direction on too many fronts to count. They are the tail that is wagging the dog and we need to bob it.

One Bay Area Plan

Rosa Koire of The Post Sustainability Institute and Democrats Against U.N. Agenda 21 and Michael Shaw of Freedom Advocates and the Globalization of California filed a lawsuit in the California state court to stop a plan of the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) to institute district level, consolidated planning and zoning for a nine county region in the Bay Area. The One Bay Area Plan is a purely fascist attempt to take unelected governing power over the lives and property of people living in the region. Below is a map of the region covered by the ABAG plan.


Notice that one of the counties is Santa Clara County. Santa Clara County is the home of Silicon Valley. You probably don’t need to be told that Silicon Valley is – the tech center of the universe – at least in the United States. The significance of pointing that out is to highlight the cell of power within the district organizational structure. It includes businesses and public officials as described above. In Idaho, the businesses don’t have much national power except for the INL, Simplot (Micron), and Hewlett-Packard but the collective economic and political power of the Associated Governments of the Bay Area (ABAG) is, comparatively speaking, like the sun to a flashlight and with the voters in Idaho and California collectively being mere fireflys.

The One Bay Area Plan put forth by ABAG does not affect Idaho directly. But the organization of ABAG as a multi-county jurisdictional region within the collective of California counties within the Western Interstate Region (WIR) within the National Association of Counties (NACO) does effect us because the lobbying they do for their counties become programs for our counties in Idaho.

The best example would be the plans for public transportation. It’s a ridiculous waste of money to even talk about it for Idaho because we don’t have the population density to even warrant consideration but that fact is irrelevant when the programming and the money coming from the federal government is one-size fits all collectivism and the economic development districts exist to the federal money to implement them.

The Technocratic Tyranny

It’s pretty safe to say that the collective power of ABAG is the source of the Technocratic Tyranny. It was the Silicon Valley tech firms along with IBM and GE that were behind the “reinvention of government” which was the corporatization of government to utilize the capabilities of technology at a national level with the participation of “public-private partners”. For the technology corporations the incentives were the obvious – profit. The fact that collectivism imposed by computer systems changes our form of government was irrelevant to the tech firms because the profits in collectivization were so great and the efficiency message was an easy sell to a mostly technically ignorant Congress.

1993 Technology for America’s Economic Growth, A New Direction…

The organizational structure of collectivization of counties into districts and districts into state-wide collectives partnered with business is the source structure of our national security vulnerability because under the World Trade Organization, foreigners could buy businesses and import their foreign workers to our shores. Effectively they were buying into our governing structure while We the People were unaware.


The following video is from forum put together by Michael Shaw and Rosa Koire bringing together some of the best minds and most dedicated activists who are working against the globalization of governing power through regionalization. While they are talking about California, everything they are saying applies to Idaho on a smaller scale. The multi-county economic development districts are regional organizations and the Idaho Association of Counties is the regional organization that encompasses our entire state.

This Man Took One Look At Hillary’s Post-Benghazi ‘Pose’, Immediately Realizes Something…

Before It’s News)

Among the chief complaints regarding Hillary Clinton’s performance in front of the House Select Committee on Benghazi last week was a perception that she treated the serious matter of four murdered Americans far too flippantly. After laughing several times and making what some interpreted as inappropriate jokes during her testimony, the Democrat presidential candidate capped off the marathon hearing with a celebratory pose that received significant social media feedback.


Numerous critics of her behavior, including MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, believed Clinton showed too much cheerfulness considering the somber events explored during the hearing.

The image included in the above tweet has since gone on to receive even more attention after being compared to a similar pose from a former president, then caught in his own scandal. While a young Hillary Clinton worked to impeach Richard Nixon over his involvement in the Watergate affair, at least a few Twitter users noticed that she now seems to be mirroring him.


While a few comments questioned the validity of such a comparison, plenty of others felt it was warranted. After all, this incident is hardly the first time the two divisive politicians have been compared.

Do you believe Hillary Clinton should be president? Share your thoughts in the comments section.

A happy Hillary at hearing. I’m not sure I’d be so ebullient at a hearing involving a U.S. Ambassador’s death.

School Starts Islamic Indoctrination, Gets Nasty Surprise When HUNDREDS of Parents Do This


When a county in Georgia started indoctrinating their students in the Islamic faith, they figured that parents would just let it slide under the banner of multiculturalism. They figured wrong.

Now, hundreds of Walton County parents are set to address the school board’s Oct. 10 meeting, looking to get equal time for Christianity and Judaism and to fix some of the misleading information in the curriculum.

the misleading information in the curriculum.

Especially controversial is a worksheet given to students where Allah is referred to as the “same god worshipped by Jews & Christians.” According to WSB-TV, this is one of the worksheets given to Walton County students:


“My daughter had to learn the Shiad, and the five pillars of Islam, which is what you learn to convert, but they never once learned anything about the Ten Commandments or anything about God,” said Michelle King, a Walton County parent.

“Allah is not the same god in my opinion because I don’t worship Allah on Sunday mornings; Allah is just the Arabic word for god,” resident Steven Alsup told WSB-FM.

And for parent Bill Greene, the issue was one of the county usurping one of the traditional functions of the family — the passing on of faith.

“I believe my children are my responsibility and I believe I need to be the one teaching them what we believe instead of the school,” Greene said.

If parents opt their children out of the course, they’ll receive a lower grade. That’s what happened to Ryan Breece’s child.

“We need to see the assignments and we need to be able to opt out without any grade negativity on our children,” Breece said. He started a Facebook group dedicated to criticism of the Islam curriculum, which has over 1,500 members.

Speaking to reporters, Georgia Department of Education spokesman Matt Cardoza seemed to intimate that Walton County’s Islam curriculum was not what the state had intended for the course.

“This element is not an evaluation of any religion, nor is it a course in the belief system of any religion,” Cardoza said. “It is important that students understand the differences between each of these religions to help them understand the tensions that exist in the region.”

However, he added that “when teachers teach ‘beyond’ the recommended paragraph above, this is a teacher or local decision, and not one that is encouraged by the Department of Education or required by the Georgia Performance Standards.”

And, by the turnout the county is likely to see at the October board meeting, it’s not one that’s encouraged by parents, either.
