“The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles.” — Karl Marx, The Communist Manifesto, 1848

“Marx was keenly aware of capitalism’s ability to innovate and adapt. But he also knew that capitalist expansion was not eternally sustainable. And as we witness the denouement of capitalism and the disintegration of globalism, Karl Marx is vindicated as capitalism’s most prescient and important critic.” — Chris Hedges, Left Forum, May 30, 2015
