Communism existed before Marx. It came right from the Greeks through Scotus. Jews have been in paradox of socialism for thousands of years. Marx was a Jew, but he was pulling at the hearts of Catholic Universalism when he wrote his manifesto. Many thought it a rupture in philosophy when the pope met with Castro, but actually Castro is from the same school so to speak. It is the tyranny of absolutists, universalists and internationalists that are a huge danger. Those that just don’t understand the limitations of logic. Right now George Soros is a new force to be reckoned with intellectually. His claim that ideas influence the economy outside of it’s general cyclical nature is somewhat correct, but could become dangerously religious and dogmatic in it’s belief. All things are relative, including relativity.
