Some of my friends have accused me of being a socialist, which is of course completely accurate and perceptive. And they wonder how I could possibly be one after the fall of Communism, to which I reply that Communism didn't fall. In the Soviet Union then and in China now, a wealthy class of party-members exploits the workers. Uh, that's not what Karl Marx proposed. I bet my friends never read the Communist Manifesto. If they ever do, they should read the new annotated version by Phil Gasper, especially pages 93-117 "Is the Manifesto Still Relevant?"
