    Karl Marx is often erroneously described as a communist, but enlightened readers of my book know that he was really a proto-Dhimmicrat.

  4. Karl Marx of course developed a Darwinian-style economic theory based on observed abuses of labor during the industrial revolution. he didn't count on Liberalism to moderate conditions......

    interestingly Communists, Fascists, Islamists and American Republicans hate Liberalism, pretty much because that political philosophy does not accommodate extremist political philosophies very well.

    "When he came to office in 1933, laissez-faire had undermined the temples of capitalism, thrown a quarter of the labor force out of work, cut the gross national product almost in half and provoked mutterings of revolution. No one knew why things had gone wrong or how to set them right. Only communists were happy, seeing in the Great Depression decisive proof of Karl Marx's prophecy that capitalism would be destroyed by its own contradictions......."

  7. Goldberg linked to one of my posts a while back. I have never had such ignorant commenters! Frickin' fascism was a liberal political phenomenon?!? They must be desperate beyond words.

    P.S. Did you mean moi aussi? I guess in PDA typing-with-two-thumbs lingo it could be moi OC, n'est-ce pas?
