"In bourgeois society, therefore, the past dominates the present; in Communist society, the present dominates the past. In bourgeois society capital is independent and has individuality, while the living person is dependent and has no individuality." (Marx, 1848).

"In place of the old bourgeois society, with its classes and class antagonisms, we shall have an association in which the free development of each is the condition for the free development of all." (Marx, 1848).

"The Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions.

Let the ruling classes tremble at a communist revolution.

The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win.

Working Men of All Countries, Unite!" (Marx, 1848).

"The need of a constantly expanding market for its products chases the bourgeoisie over the entire surface of the globe. It must nestle everywhere, settle everywhere, establish connexions everywhere. " (Marx, 1848).

And? Marx is a great go-to-guy for snippets of philosophy. But as a man of his time, some of the context is only applicable then. So we're compelled to reinterpret it for the present, and in light of current events.

But calling him a capitalist?

Vladmir Lenin, yeah; that was either satirical, very wry, or very ignorant. Without a wider context we can't sry which, though I would lean towards satire.

Vladmir Lenin, the standard comments about 'true communism never existed', everyone's an anarchist and so on. Well-meaning but possibly underinformed.
