Marxism Failed in the World, but Conquered Western Academia

One of the great lessons of the 20th century, paid for with the suffering and blood of hundreds of millions, is that communism was a failure in both economy and governance. This was demonstrated repeatedly with the fall of the Soviet Union, the switch in China from communes and central planning to capitalism, the vast slaughter of the Khmer Rouge, the breakdown of the Cuban economy, and the starving prison house that is North Korea.

The one place that Marxism has succeeded is in conquering academia in Europe and North America.

    Hell , I know a fucking Maoist who ran the European Union.

    The problem is an uninformed indolent proletariat of 2 dollar whores and an amoral 4th estate.

    Yet not a single one of them is willing to move to and live in a communist country. It is this not willing to walk the talk that disgusts me the most. It is the same with the eco-fascists and a whole lot more.

    Tenure has vaccinated the professorial class against the consequences of their advocacy.
