Marxism in a Single Sentence

The whole gospel of Karl Marx can be summed up in a single sentence: Hate the man who is better off than you are. Never under any circumstances admit that his success may be due to his own efforts, to the productive contribution he has made to the whole community. Always attribute his success to the exploitation, the cheating, the more or less open robbery of others.

[MP: Or according to our Marxist-in-Chief: “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”]


—Journalist Henry Hazlitt (1894-1993) in a 1966 article titled  “Marxism in One Minute,” as quoted (and brought up to date in the above brackets) by Mark J. Perry of the American Enterprise Institute.
