On Marxism 

From the New York Sun:

Marxism is the opium of the intellectuals.
Edmund Wilson (1895-1972)

Marxism has not only failed to promote human freedom, it has failed to produce food.
John Dos Passos (1896-1970)

Marxists are people whose insides are torn up day after day because they want to rule the world and no one will even publish their letter to the editor.
Mark Helprin (b. 1947)

Most people who read 'The Communist Manifesto' probably have no idea that it was written by a couple of young men who had never worked a day in their lives, and who nevertheless spoke bodly in the name of 'the workers.'
Thomas Sowell (b. 1930)
