Marx: a darker side...

Here's an interesting blog with original German and English translations of some items that show us another side of Marx.


Here's a sample:

Marx to Engels, December 17, 1858:

"The industriousness of these little Baden fleas, bred from democratic piss-sewage, is touching.”

The German:
Marx an Engels, 17. Dezember 1858
"Die Betriebsamkeit dieser kleinen aus der demokratischen Pißjauche ausgebrüteten badensischen Flöhe ist rührend."MEW a.a.O. 29, 376., Rotbuch S. 119
