Thus Alinsky begins his text by telling readers exactly what a radical is. He is not a reformer of the system but its would-be destroyer. In his own mind the radical is building his own kingdom, which to him is a kingdom of heaven on earth. Since a kingdom of heaven built by human beings is a fantasy - an impossible dream - the radical’s only real world efforts are those which are aimed at subverting the society he lives in. He is a nihilist.
In The 18th Brumaire, Marx himself summed up the radical’s passion by invoking a comment of Goethe’s Mephistopheles: “Everything that exists deserves to perish.” The essence of what it means to be a radical is thus summed up in Alinsky’s praise for Satan: to be willing to destroy the values, structures and institutions that sustain the society in which we live. The many names of Satan are also a model for the way radicals camouflage their agendas by calling themselves at different times Communists, socialists, new leftists, liberals, social justice activists and most consistently progressives. My parents, who were card-carrying Communists, never referred to themselves as Communists but always as “progressives,” as did their friends and political comrades. The “Progressive Party” was created by the Communist Party to challenge Harry Truman in the 1948 election because he opposed the spread of Stalin’s empire.
The whole idea that anybody (except a few marginalized die-hards] is ridiculous.
Except for the Chinese pseudo communists it has always failed. The Chinese will go through a major shift as it grows a middle class. But no one is aspiring to fabricate some communist nation.
Spent the first 30 years of my life fighting the cold war.

i seem to remember obamas own words meh who pays attention to the stock market or he doesnt.
the stock market is over inflated its value is determined by supply and demand of any given stock and its value has no tangible proof its all electronic.
that said the stock market was over 14,000 under bush before the housing crisis and government interference that led to the so called crisis which nothing has been fixed money was funneled in to shore up an already over inflated over manipulted financial sector.
