    Why? The most visionary people, in this case, are older. They'll bring youth in with them. Sanders inspired AOC.

    Here's a word-sketch of these old candidates. Cantankerous, minds already made up, fighting battles left over from fifty years ago, preoccupied with win or lose rather than invent. You don't need a committee chairman whose energies ran out decades ago, you need someone in his or her prime. Hence my 42 year age cap suggestion a while back to focus the nation.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    You're just feeling your age. Politicians don't function in a vacuum. Most young ones get pawned by the elders - gate-keepers of the system, evidenced by the pressure on the younger female representatives newly elected within the Democratic party. This "get along" bs they constantly hear.

    Karl Marx is being portrayed as a Capitalist for some reason, possibly in the setting of a game of Monopoly. While that's my best guess I have no idea why he should be in this or any other context.

    Gabbard made a good showing of herself on Bill Maher's show. I was impressed, but she's not getting any coverage at all from the corporate media here. They're propping up Harris and Buttigieg as they reluctantly and slowly write off Biden. They're giving Warren some mention because they have to due to her polling numbers and fundraising. They are doing their ever best to minimize Sanders by talking dollars raised as opposed to popularity in polls.

    Both sides of the corporate media are so corrupt and manipulative. It's sickening.

    I can see your interpretation but that was not what I was after. Reading Ahso! the comment sounded like some Marxist magic. I googled Marx Magician images and went this one.

    I looked into where it came from not that it matters.

    Marxism is solely concerned, from first word to final word, with giving the manual worker political control of his destiny. The working class is traditionally paid a fixed wage while the capitalist takes all the cream off the top of the endeavour while making no contribution to production. It was that creaming of profit which Marx intended to eliminate. He didn't regard his proposals as magic, he called his proposals a fair distribution of the product of labor.

    If you think Marx was anyone else I'd love to hear your description.

    I was correct that you had no idea what you were talking about. I doubt you bothered to read the text of the page you linked to. Perhaps you'll use the links to educate yourself one day?
