Someone mashed up a whole bunch of old cartoons showing the reading of the Communist Manifesto. Awesome.

    Awesome video indeed… I wonder how long it took the person who compiled and synched it to complete this project… and how many different cartoons did he/she have to take clips from? Without a doubt, a labor of love. As a child, in the environment I was raised in (conservative) any references to the Communist Manifesto which I overheard treated it like it was some sort of horrible, satanic, subversive literature. Now that I am older and have read some of it myself…. I find many parts of it to be quite sensible, though a bit impractical considering the current state of human nature. I was just writing in a board post that I once heard a good quote, “Karl Marx had the right idea, but the wrong species.”

    Lovely blog as always and do keep on keeping on 🙂
