    Who are we to think we are fit to guide the young 'uns ??

    since we have made such an incredible hash out of what formerly was a glorious beautiful orb.

    But I do recommend DSA to her . . .

    Marxism-Leninism is a thing.

    Marxism-Leninism-Mao Zhedong Thought is a thing.

    They are schools within the broad church of Marxism.

    I wasn't talking about Marx:

    The problem with Marxists is that they think greed is confined to the capitalists.
    I bet I have more Marxist friends than you. Remember, we have actual Communist parties in Brazil (yes, plural). They all believe in collective endeavors of the kind that are incompatible with individual selfishness and greed.
