KARL MARX WAS A LOSER WHO NEVER WORKED
KARL MARX WAS A LOSER
WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU CALL A MAN WHO DIDN'T SUPPORT HIS FAMILY?
His wife bore 7 children. Only 3 of those children lived to be adults. The other 4 died young from the effects of living in poverty.
Karl Marx was a 'thinker'. He sat in a chair and thought about what it must be like to be a working man.
Rather than experiencing the world as it was, Marx thought about how he wished it would be.
Though he had never worked, Marx concluded that a working man was selling his soul to his boss.
In particular, Marx thought about the new process of making cotton thread by machine, in a factory. What he concluded is that the owners of the factories became wealthy while the workers made wages barely enough to live on. He did not consider that men were leaving the farms to work in the factories because the pay was steady and there was one day off a week, much better conditions than on the farm.
Marx decided the workers should own the factories. He wrote loftily of the toil of the workers, without seeming to have any understanding of investment in order to construct the factory. Nor did he bother his mind to consider all that goes into managing a factory. He just saw men working and found it so repulsive he decided they should at the least own the factory so as to save their souls.
The fact that Marx never worked in itself makes his 'thinking' suspect, but much worse is how Marx provided for his family.
For most of his adult life, and in particular while his children were young, Karl Marx's main source of income came from his friend, Engels, who periodically sent money to support the family.
Engels, in turn, received his money from - cotton mills! His family were owners of a mill in Manchester, England. Engels himself lived off the workers, and the money he sent to his friend Karl Marx was from the profits of the factory.
Karl Marx lived off the toil of factory workers while bemoaning their fate and 'thinking' of how it ought to be.
Karl Marx was a parasite. What sort of man can watch his children go hungry and bury four of them but refuse to work in order to provide for them? The money he received from Engels was never enough to raise the Marx family out of poverty. Certainly their circumstances were worse than those of the factory workers. And Marx was an educated man. He certainly could have found work had he wanted to.
Marx's philosophy of a worker selling his soul seems to be his own excuse for his negligence toward his wife and children.
Did he think it was better for his children to die than for him to get a job and provide for them?
What's astonishing is that a loser such as Karl Marx is taken seriously, his philosophy touted as the working man's utopia.
Of course, wherever Marxism has been instituted, be it in Cuba, in North Korea, in China, in Russia, the workers have never found themselves better off. In fact, Marxism brings with it famine, starvation, and death.
Marx had no experience in the world, no experience working. His experience seems confined to sitting in a chair 'thinking'. And as he thought he contrived a theory which was no more than his own excuse for not working.
Those people who espouse Marxism as the way the world ought to be are no better than Marx himself. Chances are they too are parasites. They're certainly not people who truly care about others. They just want to do like Marx, live off someone else's toil.
IF YOU SCROLL DOWN JUST A BIT, YOU'LL FIND A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN LEAVE A COMMENT. AS YOU'LL SEE, THE TWO COMMENTS LEFT FOR ME ARE NOT GOOD ONES, BUT I APPROVE EVERY COMMENT AS LONG AS IT'S NOT OBSCENE. I'D LIKE TO KNOW WHAT YOU THINK.
