Gotnews.com has exclusively obtained Senator Kay Hagan’s pro-Marxist, pro-Socialist college thesis.
Hagan, then writing under her unmarried name of Ruthven, approvingly cited left-wing progressive thinkers, including Charles Beard and Thorstein Veblen, in a 1974 college thesis titled, “The Silent Sentinels.”
The thesis pushed the then-controversial Equal Rights Amendment in a thesis ostensibly about the suffragists.
Hagan advocated a progressive view of positive rights and approvingly cited socialist writer, Thorstein Veblen. She also cited economic Marxist Charles Beard who argued that the American founding was from selfish motives rather than philosophical foundations. Hagan downplays the role that natural rights play in the American founding and pushes a left-wing view of rights as evolving overtime.
“Institutions such as capitalism and government had evolved up through economic human history,” Hagan wrote.
“Enfranchisement,” she wrote, “can be linked to an evolutionary process. All process is flow in accord with time, motion, and space. The more we live (in generations) the faster things happen due to an accumulation of experiences.”
Hagan continued. “1848 was just the beginning of the fight with 1917, sixty-nine years later, serving as the catalyst of experiences and happenings to speed up the process. Due to this evolutionary flow, all people, whether man or woman, black or white, heterosexual or homosexual, American or Russian, etc., might be someday considered free and equal.”
