    In case you had any doubts that America’s college campuses are dominated by Godless communists, fresh statistical evidence is at hand.
    More than 25 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the collapse of the Soviet Union and the onset of market economy practices in China, “The Communist Manifesto” still ranks among the top three most frequently assigned texts at American universities.

    By contrast, the Bible doesn’t show up at all

    Nancy Pelosi gave Obama her first edition copy on election night. He loved it.

    Neither does Marx's 1848 Manifesto on Communism. I've read it a few times. More like craziness, but I'd classify it Philosophy (like the Bible) if I had to classify it. Mostly a dry read, a long rant of jealousy.

    Reminds me of those revolutionaries you hear about when they take over they execute & jail all the people with a education.
    Professors, writers, musicians, artist off with there heads!
    No appreciation of education, the sciences or the arts.

    The Communist Manifesto is a great read
    he explains how you are entitled to everyone elses stuff
    Compare it to the current thinking of our govt, not too far off, but I think we are much more in line with Fascism

    China did that ,not sure about Cuba they give free college education to the citizens.
    Ask Ted Cruz's dad he was with Castro.
    My college didn't assign reading those type books, maybe you were in a comparative politics class?

    I read it because of Truckingboards. People like you, pilot,and slave paraphrase quotes from it daily and I check to compare the original translated text. No college in my history.I barely graduated HS...

    Che joined with Castro to overthrow Battista. Che personally reviewed who received the firing squad. The educators were amongst the first. I'll have to ck on Raphael. Supposedly he was scheduled to be shot, obviously he wasn't.

    "America touts itself as the land of the free, but the number one freedom that you and I have is the freedom to enter into a subservient role in the workplace. Once you exercise this freedom you've lost all control over what you do, what is produced, and how it is produced. And in the end, the product doesn't belong to you. The only way you can avoid bosses and jobs is if you don't care about making a living. Which leads to the second freedom: the freedom to starve."

    I like this quote:
    "Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted."

    1. Dyadkin estimated that the USSR suffered 56 to 62 million "unnatural deaths" during that period, with 34 to 49 million directly linked to Stalin. In “Europe A History,” British historian Norman Davies counted 50 million killed between 1924-53, excluding wartime casualties.Mar 5, 2013.http://www.ibtimes.com/how-many-people-did-joseph-stalin-kill-1111789
      Good luck commies.

    I owned my own trucking business at age 20. In America we're supposed to be free to succeed or fail. Now, supposedly, I'm smarter by NOT owning my own.

    With all the public and private resources if kids go to bed hungry it's because they have crummy parent(s) not Americas greed.
