Contemporary Marxism = Breatharianism

It is interesting how, in perhaps the most prosperous of times in America, there seems to be a resurgence of collectivist thought.   Marxism’s origin story begins with poor agrarian (manual labor intensive) societies demanding their “fair” share from the bourgeoisie – the “rich”, the business owners, the merchants.
