Committee of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism

©2009 drkate

This article was originally intended to take a look at the “Sons of Liberty“, those who helped our Rise to Rebellion in 1775. Historically, the ‘Sons of Liberty’ had their origin in ‘Committees of Correspondence’, which helped organize resistance to the policies of the British Empire in America through information sharing, correspondence, and activities.  Many of these early Sons of Liberty were publishers of local newspapers, and used them to educate the public.

However, when I began to research the Committees of Correspondence, I ran across the “Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism“:

We are people of all races and national backgrounds who are committed to the struggle for democracy and socialism. Our name is taken from the history of the U.S. revolutionary war against British colonialism. In the 1770s, Committees of Correspondence were formed in all 13 colonies and became the catalyst for united action against British oppression. We, too, seek united action among all who feel the brunt of oppression in the U.S. And we believe that our Committees of Correspondence will, as before, be a catalyst for change.

Appropriate usurp the name of our historic founders in order to fundamentally destroy their principles…

The Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS) struggles toward a vision of unity and solidarity among all people…..

Who would disagree with the vision of unity, solidarity, and peace?  Certainly not Americans, nor our Constitution.  But how to achieve this vision is where the betrayal is illustrated:

Our vision is one in which everyone is entitled to work at a living wage, and has full access to education, health care, and housing. We believe that economic resources should be used for the benefit of the many rather than for the profit of the few. To achieve this vision the means of producing wealth — the factories, the land, and the banks — must be controlled by the people, through a broad democracy in political and cultural life.

Here is the attack on wealth, the system of capitalism, as if all wealth was stolen from or at the expense of the poor.  It is also an attack on our Constitutional Republic, which protects a system of individual liberties. It is an attack on capitalism with the middle class ultimately as targets.  By saying this I am not denying that there is ‘capitalism on steroids’ and excessive corporate abuse.

Obama’s Old Friends Appear Again

If I’m not mistaken, Carl Davidson organized one of Obama’s first rallies, and specifically organized the event where Obama supposedly came out against the war in Iraq.  Here is Carl reporting on the recent grand event entitled:

Symposium: ‘Capitalism in Crisis: Socialism for the 21st Century’

A day long symposium around the theme “Capitalism in Crisis: Socialism for the 21st Century,” sponsored by the Committees of Correspondence Education Fund opened the 4 days of programs on July 23rd.

Gus Newport, former mayor of Berkeley, CA opened the panel on “Building the Progressive Majority in the Age of Obama” by introducing Jack O’Dell’s Democracy Charter. The Democracy Charter was the result of a decade-long project spearheaded by O’Dell, an advisor to both Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rev. Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Coalition. It is modeled on both the 1955 Declaration of the Bandung Conference against colonialism and the Freedom Charter proclaimed by the anti-apartheid forces in South Africa the same year. It outlines thirteen points for a “Second Reconstruction” in the U.S. of far-reaching and all-sided democratic reform – politically, socially, economically, and culturally.

The full report is a must read to seek the thinking of the ‘progressive’ left in ‘mangling’ the entire concept of America.  Hmm…no good crisis is worth wasting now, is it?

Finally, in Eleven Talking Points on 21st Century Socialism, Davidson starts out with this:

1. Socialism’s fundamental building blocks are already present in US society. The means of production, for the most part, are fully developed and in fact are stagnating under the political domination of finance capital. The US labor force, again for the most part, is highly skilled at all levels of production, management, marketing, and finance. The kernels of socialist organization are also scattered across the landscape in cooperatives, socially organized human services, and centralized and widespread mass means of many-to-many communication and supply/demand data management. Many earlier attempts at socialism did not have these advantages.

This is the “Socialist Education Project” underway, now more openly than before.

Discussion

As Hannity’s series the “History of Radicalism” shows, everywhere one looks there are radical elements surrounding Obama and making up his administration, particularly the Czars.  These also happen to be the unions, ACORN, other community organizers, Moveon.org, and probably other groups.

I insist that the American left does not know how to defend its policies and will resort to other tactics to push its agenda.  Carl Davidson’s report proves it.

What do you think?

    I think what frightens me the most is that the people who follow folks like Davidson are ignorant to the 5000 year human history of tyranny and oppression by Kings, Rulers, Despots, Tyrannts and Dictators. Is was not until the gift of the Constitution that the power was finally given to the individuals of a civil society, and we have seen the beautiful blossom bloom from that event. Anyone who is not actively supporting the founding fathers’ implementation of a limited government through a Constitutional Republic should understand that they have already succumbed and relinquished their liberties and freedoms to the dictates of tyrants.

    For what government has ever healed the sick, relinquished the poor from their bondage, educated a man in his own individualty but for the American People under their free and individual rights through a limited a government. Maybe Thoreau said it best in his essay “On the Duty of Civil Disobedience” when he stated:

    “…government never of itself furthered any enterprise, but by the alacrity with which it got out of its way. It does not keep the country free. It does not settle the West. It does not educate. The character inherent in the American People has done all that has been accomplished…”

    Do you believe the Constitution is the rule of law?
    Do you believe in the original intent of our founding fathers?
    Do you want to reform Congress? If your answer is yes, we have
    to work together to make this happen.

    “Our vision is one in which everyone is entitled to work at a living wage, and has full access to education, health care, and housing.”

    Aside from the physiclly and mentlly disabled, the only American citizens who didn’t have the above–before obama started dismantling our economy and social structure–for the most part lacked these things because of their own choices. There are as many free public schools in Watts, Harlem, and South Side Chicago as there are in the suburbs. Medicare is in place. Welfare is in place. A minimum wage is in place.

    The Liberal Fascists use noble rhetoric to cloak the toxic waste of their putrid minds. An old fashioned way to say this is, The devil weareth a pleasing aspect.

    the transfer of wealth has begun in earnest.

    keep a close eye in where the money is flowing to.

    just a few eeks ago NACA dod a city by city tour where they wrote down, rearranged, and refinanced on the order of 200,000 mortgaes, with interest rates as low as 2%. The loans were underwritten by B of A in collaboration with the White House. OBama has allotted billions to restructure subprime NINJA loans.

    The unions were given 10 billion as part of the stimulus

    This is a giveaway.
