"Karl Marx is 'back in fashion'"

"The hard-left finance spokesman for Britain's opposition Labour Party said on Monday that Karl Marx, co-author of "The Communist Manifesto", is back in fashion because his ideas offer a definitive way to analyse the capitalist foundations of the modern Western economy."
"If you look at most of the institutions that are teaching economics today, Marx has come back in to fashion because people have gone back to his analysis of just the basics of how the system works," McDonnell told BBC radio.
"If you look at our capitalist system, one of the definitive analysts of how it works - not whether it is condemned, or whether it is right or wrong, just the mechanics of how it works, when it was first formed and how it would be developed - actually was Marx," he said.
If we don't prop up what we have, American exceptionalism, we are going to gravitate towards that crap.

The enslavement of the masses for the common good. Sounds delightful.

"The history of society is the inexorable history of class struggle," said sixth-year undergraduate Kirk Dorff, 23, resting his feet on a coffee table cluttered with unpaid bills, crusted cereal bowls, and bongwater-stained socialist pamphlets.

You know something is wrong when so relatively briefly after the Soviet nightmare, they themselves rejected, people are flirting with Bernie Sanders.

Part of the problem is vow Barack telling people we are no different than Juan de los palotes.

Lem said...

LOL.

I looked up Juan de los palotes and to my surprise it exists.

Juan de los palotes in the Dominican Republic is the equivalent of the furthest remote land you can name. like saying Timbactoo

I thought it was mythical, made up. LOL.

The Dem field is as pathetic as ever.

You've got a crook liar money-grubbing criminal.
A Marxist
and Joe Biden.

You know what would be a good idea?

Schools should send students to Russia and Venezuela.

Let them learn about "paradise on earth".

Hillary is also a crony-capitalist-Marxist. She is above the law and she must win power over us so she can escape accountability.

I'm still waiting for GOP front-runner to promise to indict her.

Can Of Cheese for Hunter said...

That is a good idea, except the students would be given a tour of the Potemkin village instead.

Poor Joe Biden.

All that angst about his son is a mechanism to cover up the confusion between Barack's America and the America he used to know.

He 'literally' doesn't know if he is coming or going.

Timbuktu is a real place as well. Middle of Saharan Africa if I recall correctly.

It's a psychosis -- the passionate desire to murder the economic system that has lifted almost all of us out of abysmal poverty.

What more argument can be made to effectively kill these people where they sleep. They will have zero issue doing it to you physically or financially and if you don't believe me, then you would be a fool. I told you all this was going to happen and here it is. It's happening before our eyes. We aren't pushing back leftism, it's growing and it will consume us if more drastic measures aren't employed.

Yeah. Exclamation point.
Now hand over your profits and savings.
For the greater good. And karl the fashionable.
This sad excuse for an ideology has resurrected so many times it could be one of those CPR dummies they make you practice on, smelling like 10 million bad breaths plus rubbing alcohol and plastic and failure.
