It's all about those Lazy Americans, Spoken by a Marxist, kind of Thing

Dear America,

"We’ve been a little bit lazy 
over the last couple of decades.  
We’ve kind of taken for granted — 
‘Well, people would want to come here’ — 
and we aren’t out there hungry, 
selling America 
and trying to attract new businesses 
into America.”  
Obama @APEC, addressing CEO's

let's be clear; he's not calling the workers lazy...au contraire

he is speaking down to the nation's CEO's who create and manage the jobs  (for the workers).

Besides being of the belief that progress, ergo technology, takes away jobs and opportunity for the little worker bees (remember that day...the Proletariat-in-Chief revolting against the ATM's and airport kiosks) -- also known as, buying into Fallacy #12, as laid out in my new favorite read, The Naked Communist; it's the one that "[assumes] that technological developments would make machines more and more efficient and therefore throw so many men out of work that they would compete for jobs until wages would become more and more meager..."

...the president is also fiercely supporting the very same mindset that is being promoted by the latest round of revolutionaries of the Occupy Wall Street movement; clearly misguided by their own ignorance -- of How the Real World Works, and more importantly, how the real world requires everyone to work together -- our president takes a side.  And it isn't the right one.  Matter of fact, it is quite un-American to boot.

With the arrival of the factory -- and the factory worker -- Karl Marx and his partner in crime-inism, Friedrich Engels, came to the realization that the evil capitalists, and all their wares, would eventually, most assuredly, be overthrown.  They figured that there would come a day when the modern world would test this relationship of worker bee and CEO; and even though communism survives merely upon one fallacy built upon another -- when answering the question as to the social responsibility of the simple factory, Marx and Engels truly believed "no private individual should get the profits from something which many people were required to produce."

Again, from The Naked Communist:

"Marx and Engels did not believe that wages were adequate compensation for labor performed unless the workers received all the proceeds from the sale of the commodity.  Since the hands of the workers produced the commodity they believed the workers should receive all the commodity was worth.  They believed that the management and operation of a factory were only 'clerical in nature' and that in the near future the working class should rise up and seize the factories or means of production and operated them as their own."

like that would solve anything.

but details, right; while this incite is only immediately followed up with a question, "without his willingness to risk considerable wealth would there be any factory?"

you know, tomorrow, the Occupy Wall Street revolutionaries plan on taking down Wall Street -- they have every intention to bring it to a screeching halt using whatever means available and possible.

I cannot help but notice how incredibly easy it is for people to pipe up and revolt AFTER the wealth, after the profits, after some people might have made more money than others (in perfect relationship to the degree of effort, responsibility, investment, and level of risk put up in the first place).

But when a president of the United States -- the birthplace of self-reliance and mass purveyor of free enterprise, independent commerce, free trade, with equal protections and opportunity safely held under the Rule of Law for one and all -- continuously speaks of such ill will against those 'who risk', in effect it becomes real cause to sound the alarm. This progression is inevitable within the common sense frame of mind.

Just who is this guy and what are his true beliefs?

There is just one more excerpt from The Naked Communist that I wish to share aloud... before I give it a rest for the day:

"One cannot pore over the almost endless products of his pen -- the weighty, complex books or the reams of sniping, feverish correspondence without feeling that Karl Marx projected into Communism the very essence of his own nature.  His resentment of political authority expressed itself in a ringing cry for universal revolution.  His refusal or inability to compete in a capitalistic economy wrung from him a vitriolic denunciation of that economy and a prophecy that its destruction was inexorably decreed.  His deep sense of insecurity pushed him to create out of his own imagination a device for interpreting history which made progress inescapable and a Communist millennium unavoidable.  His personal attitude toward religion, morals, and competition in everyday  existence led him to long for an age when men would have no religion, morals, or competition in everyday existence.  He wanted to live in a classless, stateless, noncompetitive society where there would be such lavish production of everything that men, by simply producing according to their apparent ability, would automatically receive a superabundance of all material needs."  [about Marx]

scary, isn't it?

"He wanted to live in a classless, stateless, noncompetitive society where there would be such lavish production of everything that men, by simply producing according to their apparent ability, would automatically receive a superabundance of all material needs."  And if I'm not mistaken, sounds to me like we are knee deep in the imaginations of a community organizer [like Marx] who has never held a real job in his life.  If Obama had a drinking problem and left his family to fend for themselves half the time, we might find ourselves spot on.

A real, live, naked, Communist rests his future upon the belief that "each will produce according to his ability and and each will receive according to his need."  And in order for this to succeed, the motivation to turn a profit (large or small) is replaced with working to benefit society as a whole -- replacing a nation built upon a Declaration of Independence and Constitution with a new one; and thereby transforming a nation of self-reliant capitalists with the proletariat's pipe dream... giving rise to a collective authority and priority, as dictated by the state. [and, of course, ending with extinguishing all incentive to progress as individuals at all]

It begins with presidents (kings, dictators...) declaring a class struggle in every possible way.  It progresses, with advancements in technology made to look evil -- with risk takers, and the whole lot  (especially those pesky CEO's) made to look utterly lazy.

Make it a Good Day, G

the capitalist system is not perfect BECAUSE man, the capitalist, is not perfect...
...if only men were angels...
...blah, blah, blah, blah, blahhhhhhhhhg.
