Karl Marx On “Fiscally Liberal, But Socially Conservative”

“The Communist revolution is the most radical rupture with traditional property relations; no wonder that its development involves the most radical rupture with traditional ideas.”

-Karl Marx, The Communist Revolution (Penguin, p 243)

In other words, Marx didn’t believe a man could be “fiscally liberal, but socially conservative.” If you’re game for a new way of distributing wealth, you’re game for a new way of doing everything. “Where your money is, there your heart will be also.”
