In Part One of this video series, Kengor explores the foundations of Marxism, Communism, and Socialism, and he explains how they relate to each other. Investigate the key players of Communism: Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, and Bella Dodd. Learn how Karl Marx’s personal worldview influenced the ideology that whole governments have assumed, despite its diabolical roots. The goal of this series is to teach you about these ideologies so that you can combat them in our present society and teach others to do the same. Dive into Paul Kengor’s series today and take action because we must “take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them” (Ephesians 5:11).

This eight-part series includes:

Episode 1: Marx and the Communist Manifesto

Using quotes from the Communist Manifesto, Paul Kengor outlines the basic ideology of Communism; from its call for the abolition of private property to attacks on the family. In Kengor’s words, Communism “seeks to transform human nature, which is why it seeks to do things like eliminate religion . . . it can't compete with other worldviews that threaten its worldview.”

Episode 2: Marx: World View and Personal—Religious Views

This video covers the perverted world view of Karl Marx, who said, “Communism begins where atheism begins.” Paul Kengor explains Marx’s views on religion and race, which were blatantly hate-filled, and how understanding the ideas behind the man, Karl Marx, helps us to understand the ideology of Communism.

Episode 3: Communism vs Socialism and Marxists on “Democracy”

Paul Kengor explores the distinctions between Communism and Socialism, addressing common questions and misconceptions. He emphasizes that Socialism is the common ownership of the means of production, and that, in Marxist theory, Socialism is the gateway to Communism. The prevalence of Socialism in our own government is also discussed via examples of contemporary figures like Bernie Sanders, and via an explanation of the rise of democratic socialism, particularly through organizations like the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).

Episode 4: Global and American Marxism, Communism: The Death Toll, and How to Win - Teach to Win

Paul Kengor provides an overview of the rise and global expansion of Marxism, particularly focusing on the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia and its aftermath, including the establishment of the Soviet Communist International. He also cites the Black Book of Communism and other reliable sources to shed light on the destructive path of Communism. An estimated 100 million lives were lost at the hands of Communist governments and yet many people in our country blissfully prefer and support Socialist and Communist governments. Kengor invites us to realize the solution to fighting the Communist ideology is education—learning about it and teaching others as well.

Episode 5: The Devil and Karl Marx Part I

What is the history of Communism? What is Karl Marx’s role in the early years of this ideology and its promulgation? In this video, you’ll find the answer to these questions and more.

Episode 6: The Devil and Karl Marx Part II: Marx and Religion

Karl Marx was once a Christian but as an adult, he quickly abandoned all religion and God Himself. Marx’s hatred for religion extended even to the Jewish faith of his forefathers. Paul Kengor explains the connection between Karl Marx’s hatred for religion and the Communist idea that religion must be removed from society.

Episode 7: The Devil and Bella Dodd Part I

In this episode, Paul Kengor gives us a brief look into who Bella Dodd was, her move to America, her Marxist indoctrination via academia, her rise within the Communist party, and her infiltration of the education system. Along the way, Kengor also provides insight into the ideology of Communism and Marxism.

Episode 8: The Devil and Bella Dodd Part II

Paul Kengor continues the biography of Bella Dodd by explaining how she helped the Communists infiltrate the Catholic Church­—a practice that was fairly common for the Communist Party. This episode also covers Bella Dodd’s eventual conversion to Catholicism, thanks to Venerable Fulton Sheen, and how she became a prominent voice against Communism.
