In retrospect, we might discover that 1883 was a most significant year. We’re familiar with 1848 giving us The Com-
munist Manifesto and 1859 giving us The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of Favoured
Races in the Struggle for Life. But 1883 gave us three portentous happenings. These seemingly unrelated happenings
turned history toward socialism.
1. Karl Marx died on March 14, 1883, and was buried in Highgate Cemetery in London, England. The assumption
that Communism died with him was logical since only six people attended his funeral. But the truth is that it had not yet
begun its murderous journey through the 20th century.
2. John Maynard Keynes was born on June 5, 1883, in Cambridge, England. His political, economic, and moral
influence continues to affect every American.
3. The Fabian Socialist Society was an offshoot of The Fellowship of the New Life, which was born in October 1883
in London, England. FULL REPORT.
