Karl Marx's main ideas are labour theory of value, class struggle, alienation, and communism. He is the co-founder of Marxism and has published many books, the two most famous being "Das Kapital" and "The Communist Manifesto."
The Communist Manifesto is very good reading. ... I am not being sarcastic. It is a really interesting book.
Honestly, from that to Ayn Rand... I suppose the thinking patterns make sense. My ideals tend to root for the underdog. I would prefer that everyone has an equal playing field but, that is definitely not the case.
Your turn and real conversation ... please
