Boy, do I hate to feed that stereotype, since there’s not much economically in which I agree with Marx. Plus, I hate giving fundamentalists who have no appreciation for nuance more fuel for their atheists-are-all-communist-socialist-Marx-Nazi-evil-people” fire. But Michaelyn is having to read his work for a Western Civ course and reminded me of this quote, which is spot on the money.
“To abolish religion as the illusory happiness of the people is to demand their real happiness.”
Damn, Marx. Get it.
