no man has been responsible for more suffering or loss of liberty in the history of the human race. Ever.

You criticize Jews and yet you honor their Semitic religion? Why have you abandoned the spirituality of your ancestors?

Agreed. Islam is certainly numero uno in body count, abuse, and human enslavement. Death toll is incalculable but in the hundreds of millions. Still Marxism has rocketed to number two on the list of most murderous and destructive ideologies in a comparably short period of time.

Marx's grave should be a urinal, so everyone who got fucked over by his bullshit can take a nice long piss into his decomposing corpse.

you could argue that sure. consider this though when ghengis was done he was done. The suffering marx created started with him and has negatively touched the life of every person who came after in one way or another. The numbers climb exponentially with each new generation.

It won't be easy because you have to pay to go in to Highgate Cemetery and it's locked out of business hours. Plus there are always large crowds of Chinese tourists posing for photos by the grave, which is not in the most secluded part of the cemetery.

It's the central attraction in the cemetery and always busy. If my own experience there is anything to go by, I would say that the grave stone piece which was attacked is held together mainly with spit. I make a point of covering the fucking thing when I go there.

To be Devils Advocate; would the grave not serve a higher purpose intact, to show the futility of his ideas and philosophy?

Destroying the grave doesnt destroy the idea.

Yeah, I don't want to be in the crowd destroying Confederate statues and trying to erase other history so this shouldn't be ok. But, we can make one exception..

You are correct that the notion that Marx's grave is maintained by capitalism is a conflicting ideal. And destroying historical art and sites is book burning for the sake of ignorance and goes against the notion of free speech. And while free speech is limited by obscenity, Marx is not obscene. Even if his ideas are the height of folly, it's the ideas of a teenager that never had to work in his life. And we can't outlaw childish thoughts as obscenity.

Im betting it was abused by someone who has recently been insulted by someone calling them a Marxist. Normal people don't destroy history. They cherish it and remember it so it doesn't happen again.

In Marx theory the grave would belong to everyone. And there nothing wrong with breaking your own shit.

Marx was a rambling self-important intellectual. Its an interesting read because it puts you in the political climate of the mid 1800’s but he completely missed out on factoring in human nature. He thought his high-minded ideals would lead to a global revolution, the only problem is his teachings go contrary to millions of years of psychological evolution and scale very poorly.

There were a lot of high minded idiots in the mid 1800s. A lot of them were connected to the spiritualism movement... I need to look into any connections Marx might have had.

That is a double irony. Charge people to see the grave. Run it as a charity so you don't have to give any of the money to the government. Classic!
