1. "Modern industry has established the world market, for which the discovery of America paved the way. This market has given an immense development to commerce, to navigation, to communication by land. This development has, in its turn, reacted on the extension of industry;.....
2. ...and in proportion as industry, commerce, navigation, railways extended, in the same proportion the bourgeoisie developed, increased its capital and pushed into the background every class handed down from the middle ages.
3. We see, therefore, how the modern bourgeoisie is itself the product of a long course of development, of a series of revolutions in the modes of production and exchange"- Karl Marx.
4. Translation: The founding of America as a Nation based on individual rights( including private property ownership) created a great advancement in all fields and bettered humanity which created a strong, powerful and growing middle class (bourgeoisie)
5. Marx's quote continued: "Each step in the development of the bourgeoisie was accompanied by a corresponding political advance of that class. An oppressed class under the sway of the feudal nobility, an armed and self governing association in the medieval commune: here......
6. .... independent urban republic( as in Italy and Germany); there taxable "third state" of the monarchy (as in France); afterwards, in the period of manufacturing proper, serving either the semi-feudal or absolute monarchy as a counterpoise against the nobility, and, in fact,..
7. .... cornerstone of the great monarchies in general, the bourgeoisie has at last, since the establishment of Modern Industry and the world market, conquered for itself, in the modern representative State, exclusive political sway.
8. The executive of the modern state is but a committee for managing the common affairs of the whole bourgeoisie."- Karl Marx
9. Translation: As Capitalism& individual rights grew(thanks to USA) the middle class grew. As the middle class grew, it's political power grew. This growth has rearranged all former political bonds in the West & now the middle class holds the most political power.(as of 1850)
10. As can be seen by Marx's own manifesto the communists/Marxist have always viewed the founding of America and it's concept of private property as the problem. They basically want a return to feudalism with them as the new nobility.
