The 200th anniversary of Karl Marx’ s birthday will be upon us soon and you can expect a plethora of articles and news segments about him, most of which will be praising him as a great genius whose great vision was, unfortunately, misinterpreted or misapplied by his followers. No doubt The New York Times will be foremost in so far as it ran a series of articles last year about how wonderful the totalitarian system of the Soviet Union had been. (The citizens even allegedly had better sex. No, really.) Yet, no other intellectual has been the cause of so much devastation in lives and material wealth.
This catastrophe is no secret. It is thoroughly documented by both historians and those who have (and are) living through the implementation of Marxism.
