Which they won't, if they know your reputation.
Slandering me makes you feel better?

It doesn't add much weight to your arguments.

Marx wrote a lot of totally wrongheaded crap and made it sound like some sort of justice.

His ideas about capital and markets are completely wrong, which is why they produce such horrible results.

You are right that Marx was trying to appeal to working people (the proletariat) who were not highly educated, if educated at all, but they never bought into his nonsense. Over time, Marxism has really ever appealed only to peasants and the intelligentsia... The only two classes ignorant enough to believe his theories could work in practice.


Actually, it appealed to the factory workers who were only able to read Marx because the factory owners had lobbied for public school education for their future workers.

Peasants were not noted for their high rate of literacy.

But it was always the peasants who were led in communist uprisings. How strange, unless you know that professional agitators gave the message to "workers" through speeches and meetings, by word of mouth rather than through the written word, because rational people, reasonably educated, reading Marx, almost always say "What?" Cheesy

Here's a way to "break" a free market and hurt workers and everybody else-

Ignoring the rule of uniformity for Indirect taxes like these has specific bad effects. Cry
