162 years of the Communist Manifesto

On this day in 1848 The Communist Manifesto was published by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.

I wonder what Marx would think of the world a century and a half later?

    1. And the big state! Especially with respect to the federalists you cite.

      I think he’d be surprised that capitalism hasn’t spread ever further, large parts of Africa and India and much of the rural world are still not fully integrated into the world economy and I think he might expect it to have been by now, given how dynamic and expansionist he saw capitalism.

      I’d love to bring Marx back, although he’d probably be too busy watching Planet Earth in HD to discuss dialectics.
