Heehee, I would've never imagined the thread would've went in this direction. I started it for the sake of seeing how people would react to such a question(and to be silly).

Quote
both Lenin and Marx have been blamed for "starting the communist movements we know today" but that is obviously not true.  All they did was write books.

Uhm, must have read the wrong history books when I was young...We need Dave Jenkins in a hurry.
Anyway, I would never trade Sexy Sadie for Imperialism or She Said She Said for State and Revolution. They are shorter and more meaningful. And Tomorrow Never Knows it is more hypnotic than Materialism and Empiriocriticism.
P.S. But how much She Said was Harrison's work? Listening to the first take with Lennon on the acoustic guitar  one realizes that it must have been the lead guitar player's work turning it inside out and make it the masterpiece we know.

Umm, you must've not understood what i meant.  Understandable.  Allow me to elaborate further...

The main reason why they (Lenin and Marx) have been blamed for STARTING the communist movements of today was because Marx was the first to write a book on the term we use today as communism.  Marx's ideas were not what communism represents today. Perhaps Lenin was the first to misinterpret Marx, but it was not because Marx inspired the grotesque idealism that communism holds today.  I suppose a word that can accurately describe Marx's original idealism is "naive".

I suppose one of the books you read when you were young wasn't The Communist Manifesto...  ;)

Uhm,  I'm afraid you didn't spend your teen years reading Marx and Lenin and been listening too much Lennon. Well, if that is the case you did the right thing. I didn't.

To describe Marx and Lenin (the greatest revolutionary in history, save maybe Mao) simply as "bookworms" is paradoxical (why Marx was spending his time in London instead of Germany? Just to be able to go each morning to exploit the British Museum's library large opportunities?). But naive as applied to Marx is the most extraordinary adjective I heard applied to him: it is like describing George Bush jr as literate. I do not know where you did get that idea (unless you thought it up by yourself) but, really, it is extraordinary.

Coming from you I am left with no choice, I must take your comment as a complemenet.  Yes, it was me who came up with the term "navie" for Marx. If you think about it ti's quite obvious.  He dedicated much of his time on writing ideas with outcomes he assumed could happen, but were actually simply too... unrealistic.
So, instead of just using the word "navie", let's use this to describe him.. "idealistically naive" to be more to the point.

And i seem to recall TB saying "I want to punch Sonny in her woman mouth."

TB has always had strange sexual habits.








I think we will all admit that this post HAS to be deleted.
