Marxism is alive and well and living in Britain!

The BBC today announced the result of its poll to find the greatest philosopher and Marx came no. 1 by more than double his nearest rival. Out of 34,000 votes. This despite a last-minute effort by economists to get their hero David Hume to the top.

I liked what Eric Hobsbawm said... The end of Communism has let people rediscover the range and force of his ideas without being engangled with Moscow.

Time to dust off your old copies of the Communist Manifesto...
