There are more Marxists teaching in Sociology Departments in America than living in the former Soviet Union. These sociologists hold themselves out as scientists despite the fact that they fail consistently in their efforts to predict the future. In fact, most of them lack the competence to accurately predict the past. Among the least competent and most intellectually dishonest is Gary L. Faulkner, Professor Emeritus from the University of North Carolina.
Faulkner recently claimed that Marx predicted the events we are seeing in the Occupy Wall Street movement. He also claimed that events from the 20th Century bolster the credibility of Marx as both an economist and political prophet. He further castigates Republicans for their refusal to embrace Marxism. Faulkner states, There is something really ironic about Republicans hatred of Marxism. Years ago Marx predicted capitalism would collapse. The reason - workers would rebel.
And they did. They rebelled in China, Russia, North Korea, Cambodia, Afghanistan, and Vietnam. Their rebellion produced Marxist governments. And the governments killed millions. The numbers of murders are striking:
Marxist China 65 million
Marxist USSR 20 million
Marxist North Korea 2 million
Marxist Cambodia 2 million
Marxist Afghanistan 1.5 million
Marxist Vietnam 1 million
Marx predicated all of this, right? Wrong. But we could have seen it coming. Marx was a violent man who unleashed racist and anti-Semitic assaults on anyone who dared to oppose the use of violence as a means of creating change.

Marxists murdered multiplied millions and made BILLIONS miserable..
You must be quite dumb to be a Marxist.. even silly..
Marx? Which one, Karl or Groucho?
I agree. Check out my tag-line.
He’s right about Marx predicting Occupy, but only in the same sense that Christ predicted some of the people who started churches would worship him. The occupy folks are practitioners of Marxist ideology.
