The problem Marxists have is that they can’t cope with anything that doesn’t fit neatly into their intellectual plan of the universe; that accounts for their difficulty dealing with reality. The problem with most politicians is that they are pretty stupid but think they aren’t – that and the fact that they’re inveterate meddlers who can’t leave anything alone. We’d all be better off if both groups were subject to frequent bouts of creative destruction. Or just destruction in the case of the former.
