While Marx the critical analyst is having another look in ruling-class circles, he's being looked into by the wrong people and in all the wrong places.

"The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways; the point, however, is to change it."

"Against the collective power of the propertied classes the working class cannot act, as a class, except by constituting itself into a political party, distinct from, and opposed to, all old parties formed by the propertied classes."

Belated May Day hello, precariat, whether millennials or otherwise: Marx the social change person has words for you.
