It's a shame Marx never lived under Stalin.
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Some people equate Marx with creating communism. When I read the Communist Manifesto I thought he was predicting communism rather than advocating it.
Was I using too much imagination?
Although I find it funny that Bill Clinton and Joe Biden both quoted the Communist Manifesto during the 2012 election.
