Karl Marx is the enemy

August 28th, 2008

Karl Marx, who was equally dogmatic regarding such questions, said that even raising such questions was a waste of time. They were, he said, “abstract.”

And then he told his inquirer to shut up. “Socialist man,” he famously declared, “does not ask such questions.” That is probably true. Socialist man does not wonder about where it all came from.

The problem, however, is that some people find raising the question, even if they don’t know the answer, a meaningful act. They are going to wonder about such things whether Marx or Christopher Hitchens approves.
