    I find it rich that you give Marx credit for “exposing the exploitative system of capitalism.” Don’t you think “argued” or “claimed” or some other modifier might have been warranted? You seem to anoint him for what many consider erroneous opinions, while ignoring the FACT that these opinions eventually were used to kill millions.

    Rodin’s Thinker is posed on the gates of Hell contemplating what got him there. Hopefully the year wasn’t that bad.
