Karl Marx wouldn’t have loved you, you materialistic, property-owning, class-conscious capitalist roader!( How ya like THAT commie lingo?)
To be fair ... maybe it was Groucho, or Heppo, or one of the other ‘luvable’ Marxes... And not the doofus Karl (although to be fair to Karl - he wasn’t one of the insane bastards who actually tried to implement his theories. For all I know he was just a satirist and he never dreamed anyone would take his ‘jokes’ seriously)...
didn’t he once say “I am not a Marxist”, or is that not a true quote?
That’s why he’s in fat city driving a Honda.
(not that their bad autos, they’re not, but hey, I’ll bet his next door neighbor drives a Hummer. you know, the capitalist pig neighbor.)
I had to type that question into the Scroogle search engine, and it seems like old Karl did say something like that in a letter to Engels...
Again, I don't know exactly what he meant -- but it seems like Marx was just promoting a theory for debate, and he was appalled by the folks who were invoking his name while justifying their insurrections (e.g., the period of the Paris communes in 1871)...
When I was a kid, I had a Marx model train set. Marx was the name of the manufacturer. Perhaps the vanity plate owner is a model train enthusiast?
However, I like your Marx brothers theory better!
I have always had a thing for Marx, though I was only a child when Groucho died. He’s been a long time secret crush.
Maybe the 10th of March is someone’s birtday.
