The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Napoleon

By that bad, bad man, Karl Marx.

Instructive reading, in our post-republican, post-coup polity.

History repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce.

Yep, that's from this hilarious, bitter, and brilliant piece of contemporary history.

I always thought that Marx got the diagnosis right...and the prognosis...it's the treatment that got kind of fuzzy.

When I write "right," I mean it in the broad sense of Darwin getting it basically right (though clearly wrong in many particulars), ditto Freud, ditto Einstein, etc.
