    I wonder how happy he'd be to see capitalism in action, as it costs #8.00 to visit his grave.

    Did he predict the 100 million that died at the hands of the psychopaths that attempted to implemented his theories?

    I always find it funny that folks have to fecklessly attempt to link Marx to Stalin, etc., but that's to be expected when one cannot defend american style capitalism on the merits of that system itself.

    Not just Stalin though, don't forget Mao Zedong, Pol Pot, Ho Chi Minh, The Kims (North Korea), Eastern Europe, Laos, Cambodia, Mozambique, Angola, Cuba, Venezuela and much of Africa. Marx himself predicted violent revolution, here are the final words of the Communist Manifesto.

    "The Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communistic revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win"

    On Saturday, after inspiring untold numbers of revolutions Karl Marx came home. In bronze. By way of China. And, oh, hes now 18 feet tall.

    The unveiling of a two-ton Chinese-funded sculpture to honor the German philosopher on the 200th anniversary of his birth brought scads of tourists to Trier, where his life began.

    Titan of Terror: The left-wing acolytes who say Karl Marx can't be blamed for the millions slaughtered in his name are deluded - bloodshed was at the heart of his philosophy

    Why should we when were beneficiaries? Sure capitalism has it’s problem with boom and bust cycles and highly compensated corporate psychopaths who should probably be locked up in mental institutions or prisons and it does foster a “what’s good for me is what’s good for everyone” self serving philosophy but unlike the command economy that Marx envisioned market economies actually work.

    The main reason they work is that in God’s eyes all men are equal to others but in reality Marxist like Watermark are proof positive that some people are more equal than others.

    The cemetery has a lot of famous people buried there, so they charge to visit. Not Marx's desire.
