Whenever your mouse passes over or pauses on the sarcastic-editorial abbreviation MPAV16 , anywhere in the Catholic American Thinker website, the words Marxist Principles And Values should appear in a little pop-up text window, so you don't need to actually click on it every time just to see what it means. Just put your mouse on it without clicking, and look at your little text box. (Use your browser's Back button to return.)
Real Marxists are devoid of Principles, as all the world recognizes the term Principles. Still, until perfect worldly utopia is achieved, Marxists must appear to be men of principle for purely political reasons. Perfect worldly utopia is, of course, a politically convenient straw target; the real goal of Marxism is and always was absolute dictatorship. Believe it or not, most Marxist ideologues still don’t even know that. The whole, sole aim of Marxism is the seizure of all economic and political power by any means necessary.
The first Marxist principle is, of course, The Ends Justify The Means. In the effort of achieving the ultimate End, Marxists adopt the second Marxist principle, which says that You Can’t Make An Omelet Without Breaking Some Eggs. Achieving ultimate economic, political and social power is not necessarily a pretty process, and if people must die in the process, then so be it. When all else fails, and trickery and treachery alone do not provide the ultimate End, then all good Marxists need to be ready to say Shut Up And Get On The Cattle Car to the last hold-outs and resistors of the process. Like I said, achieving societal perfection is not a pretty process, and real Marxists need to be fully prepared to do whatever nasty things are deemed necessary to achieve that final End.
The ends justify the means.
You can’t make an omelet without breaking some eggs.
Shut up and get on the cattle car.
Another Marxist “principle” involves the deconstruction and perversion of real history under the title of Historical Materialism, and the notion that all of history is the story of class struggle with the “natural” inevitable end of the perfect utopian world state of Communism. (It’s just that nature needs to be helped along a little.) So, theoretically, every war in history has had some aspect of class warfare and the need for workers to overthrow the exploiters. See? So, Attila the Hun was really looking for better wages, or to own the means of production or something.
Here are some quotes regarding the history of Marxism, so far, to consider when trying to determine the “principles” and “values” behind the words of any Marxist.
The crimes we shall expose are to be judged not by the standards of
Communist regimes, but by the unwritten code of the natural laws of
[Stéphane Courtois [The Black Book of Communism, Crimes, Terror, Repression, with Nicolas Werth, Jean-Jouis Panné, Andrzej Paczkowski, Karel Bartoshek, and Jean-Louis Margolin, translated by Jonathan Murphy and Mark Kramer, Harvard University Press, 1999, p.3]
It is better to kill one hundred innocents than to let one guilty person go.
[Dolores Ibarruri ("La Pasionaria"), Spanish Communist [ibid., p. 343]]
We didn't kill enough people.... Revolutions succeed only when rivers
run red with blood, and blood has to be spilled if what you are aiming
for is the perfectibility of the human race.
[Ares Velouchiotes, Greek Communist, [ibid., p. 329]]
Communism is not a reaction against the failure of the nineteenth
century to organize optimal economic output. It is a reaction against
its comparative success. It is a protest against the emptiness of
economic welfare, an appeal to the ascetic in us all... The idealistic
youth play with Communism because it is the only spiritual appeal which
feels to them contemporary.
[John Maynard Keynes, 1934]
Germany today is, next to Russia, the greatest exemplar of Marxian socialism in the world.
[W.E.B. Du Bois, 1936]
It is no defence whatever for an intellectual to say that he was
duped [by Communism], since that is what, as an intellectual, he should
never allow to happen to him.
Oddly enough, it is the intellectual snobbery and elitism of many of
the literati that politically correct egalitarianism appeals to; their
partiality to literary Marxism is based not on its economic theory but
on its hostility to business and the middle class. The character of this
anti-bourgeois sentiment therefore has more in common with its origin
in aristocratic disdain for the lower orders than with egalitarianism.
[John M. Ellis, Literature Lost [Yale University Press, 1997], p. 214]
The almost universal disdain toward the middle class -- the
bourgeoisie -- by those with cosmic visions can be more readily
understood in light of the role of such visions as personal
gratification and personal license. The middle classes have been
classically people of rules, traditions, and self-discipline, to a far
greater extent than the underclass below them or the wealthy and
aristocratic classes above them. While the underclass pay the price of
not having the self-discipline of the bourgeoisie -- in many ways,
ranging from poverty to imprisonment -- the truly wealthy and powerful
can often disregard the rules, including laws, without paying the
consequences. Those with cosmic visions that seek escape from social
constraints regarded as arbitrary, rather than inherent, tend to
romanticize the unruliness of the underclass and the sense of being
above the rules found among the elite.
[Thomas Sowell, The Quest for Cosmic Justice [The Free Press, 1999], pp. 139-140]
Many whose allegiance went to the Soviet Union may well be seen as
traitors to their countries, and to the democratic culture. But their
profounder fault was more basic still. Seeing themselves as independent
brains, making their choices as thinking beings, they ignored their own
criteria. They did not examine the multifarious evidence, already
available in the 1930s, on the realities of the Communist regimes. That
is to say, they were traitors to the human mind, to thought itself.
[Robert Conquest, Reflections on a Ravaged Century [W.W. Norton & Compnay, 2000], p.118]
As an intellectual construct, Capital was a masterpiece. but, like some other intellectual masterpieces, it was an elaborately sophisticated structure erected on the foundation of a primitive misconception.
...In the realm of ideas in general, the Marxian vision -- including his theory of history -- has not only dominated various fields at various times, it has survived both the continuing prosperity of capitalism and the economic debacles of socialism. It has become axiomatic among sections of the intelligentsia, impervious to the corrosive effects of evidence or logic.
But what did Marx contribute to economics? Contributions depend not
only on what was offered but also on what was accepted, and there is no
major premise, doctrine, or tool of analysis in economics today that
derived from the writings of Karl Marx. There is no need to deny that
Marx was in many ways a major historic figure of the nineteenth century,
whose long shadow still falls across the world of the twenty-first
century. Yet, jarring as the phrase may be, from the standpoint of the
economics profession Marx was, as Professor Paul Samuelson called him,
"a minor post-Ricardian."
[Thomas Sowell, On Classical Economics [Yale, 2006] p.184-186]
Were we directed from Washington when to sow, and when to reap, we should soon want bread.
[Thomas Jefferson, Autobiography]
LASCIATE OGNE SPERANZA, VOI CH'INTRATE
[Dante Allighieri, The Divine Comedy, Inferno, III:9 ["Abandon every hope, you who enter"]]

I only have one slight beef with this article - after all, putting Marxists and "principles and values" with them is an error, for Marxists are utterly incompatible and opposite with the very definitions of "principles and values" ("principles and values" imply that the earnest adherents to those would voluntarily sacrifice even their own life for them - a notion that is, of course, alien to any "good" Marxist). The "pithy sayings" of the Marxists - your observation of them being entirely correct and agreed with - are better described not as "principles and values", but as... What was the term? Ah. "Default policies" - in regards to human lives...

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
