Okay, London Times, half a century of idealogical defeat?
Try a century and a half, in fact, when Karl Marx wrote his crap in the 1800s it was all a result of spending time at libraries in London reading Adam Smith looking for a way to defeat Capitalism. So, he essentially began with an axe to grind and ended up enabling others to use his axe.
Lenin, Hitler, Stalin, and all of the various shills like Chavez have tried to make a crappy "theory" a success and each one of them have failed miserably.
Obama and all his goons think they can top all those losers from the past using a completely failed and worn out "theory"?
The "Worker's Paradise" of Karl Marx is really nothing more than hell on earth, as evidenced by the untold millions of people who have died as a result of trying to implement his "theory."
Can we sumise those who are the real "useful idiots"?
I don’t wish Hell on anybody, but I suspect that Hugo is in Eternal Fire with the rest of his predecessors, Marx, Lenin, etc.
So called “intellectuals” like Marx know they’re incapable of producing anything of value in the real world. This is what attracts them to tearing down WHAT DOES WORK, i.e., Capitalism. Capitalism, in it’s turn, has never claimed to distribute money, goods or services equally. By playing on the misery and resentment of the poor and the useless, these leeches gain power. They then set about immiserating all but a select group of cronies. Eventually, the whole country is run down, and all in the name of ‘social justice’.
