    Not only that, but the workers in the factories won't possibly be the voice of revolution.

    Factory workers are usually the first to support measures that keep their jobs secure, and their bosses in power.

    it was accurate for his day, but people, commies and others alike, need to stop treating the manifesto and the like as a leftist bible, it was written almost 200 years ago and is now barely relevant.

    Negative. Even the factory workers in Marx's time were too displaced from their pre-Capitalist roots, for it to actually be effective.

    How is asking people to be polite instead of rude or insulting a New Marxist Cancer?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Political Correctness is the cancer. Being nice has existed long before "Political Correctness".

    what would you define "political correctness" as, as a blanket term?
