You’re judging the actions of someone in a different manner due to their gender, yet you’re the one to complain about sexism?
What?

This book is nothing but communist propaganda !!

1 Star, The Communist Manifesto (via itwasgarbage)

no seriously, follow this blog

Took some time to read 1-Star Reviews of the Communist Manifesto tonight and here are some of the highlights:

"Communism would be dead within a few decades without a capitolistic nation to support it."

"Why work if you can never improve your lot in life?" (unintentionally ironic?)

"Now see this book talks about the utopian society. And since the last time I checked. We were not living in a Utopian society."

"Really. if Karl Marx had any guts, he woiuld have advocated the working man’s form of economics, Capitalism."

"not awesome"

"all that marx succeeded in doing is producing an ideology for the DEMOCRATS"

"It is cheaper than a sleeping pill."

"Communism is a great way to make people get caught up in paperwork"

"You want to respect someone, respect Milton Friedman or F. Hayek. These guys don’t claim to solve all of society’s ills."

"His philosophy was that the poor should rise up and rebel against the oppressive rich. At least that’s what I understood, though I sped through this book on x2 audio, so I may have missed some things."

"For all the hype that I’ve heard over the years, this book is not an impressive read. It does reveal communist views and ideals, but not in what I thought was a well developed way. Others (communists, no doubt) may see it differently."

"This book sucks camel genitalia."

"I bought this book because I am interested in something like ‘The Wealth of Nations’. Turned out, this book is even thin than the book I read in kindergarden. Thinner than an iPhone. about 5-6 of this book together will get the thick of an iPhone, I believe."

"Class warfare seems to be the main point of the book."

"badly wrirren manifesto"

"bunch of crap. crap that not true. if we did this we would a 3rd world natinon, or worse!!!!!!!!!!!111 crap"

and last but not least:

"This book is nothing but communist propaganda !!"

Y'all feel me on being a woman in academia, am I right?

Yeah, I'm a Marxist historian and social theorist and I'm sick as fuck of cis-dudes thinking their penis gives them insight into Das Kapital. Working to build a left where Marxist-Feminist is redundant.
