" Jews have been prominently identified with the modern Socialist movement from its very inception"..."The Jewish exodus from Russia drafted to the United States large numbers of Socialists, mostly college and university students, who must be reckoned among the pioneers of the Socialist parties in America. Their main field of activity was the ghetto. But the masses of Jewish workmen and tradesmen who were educated by this propaganda scattered throughout the country in pursuit of employment or business opportunities and became "the pedlers of socialism" among their shopmates and neighbors" Jewish Encyclopedia
Scrolling down just a little we see that they have several paragraphs on their very own Karl Marx and his socialist ideas...
Indeed, even Jesus was fighting Socialism, though it had not yet been given that name. In 264BC the nation of Judah declared tithing to be mandatory by law. These tithes were then taxes, as a tithe is not mandatory but a free will offering. Jesus said that this socialism made the word of God to no effect.
"Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death: 11 But ye say , If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free. 12 And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother; 13 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered : and many such like things do ye" Mark 7:10-13
Judah had long before Jesus set up a system of socialism to rival any of our modern day. Korban was a system of Social Security whereby your grown children could dedicate their property to the Temple (government) at a future time, but maintain usage of it in the mean time. And then to their parents, "so, I can't take care of you in your old age, THIS belongs to the Temple", so their parents became dependents of the Temple. THIS socialism made the word of God to no effect, the Children no longer "Honored" their parents, and the Temple approved of it. Of course with the Temples "approval" they were obviously not at risk of disapproval from God. Certainly the Temple (government) had become their God...
For well over 2000 years the people of Judah have been socialist, though it was not called socialism. It only stands to reason that they would be at the front of the modern socialist movement.
