This year is the 150th anniversary of Karl Marx=s The Communist Manifesto - and the effort to rehabilitate the discredited
prophet is in full swing. Never mind the dismal track record of Marxism as a gove
ing ideology; article after article proclaims
that today=s turbulent world economy is just what the great man predicted. One writer in The New Yorker even proclaimed
Marx Athe thinker of the future@.
