the "opiate of the people"[edit]

Don0t like to quibble, but I seem to recall reading that the phrase should read "an opium of the people".--Bob_M (talk) 06:23, 22 July 2007 (CDT)

If that's correct, should we fix it, or stay with the "popular" version? humanbe in 13:20, 22 July 2007 (CDT)
It's a wiki -- I'm surprised the question even needs to be asked. Once it goes up it's community property, to be fixed or elaborated upon as necessary. EVDebs 13:54, 22 July 2007 (CDT)
Yeah, I know, I'm always saying that, too. We must be a polite wiki :) We discuss before trampling, I guess. Is there a cite for the original quote? humanbe in 14:05, 22 July 2007 (CDT)

What Communism actually is[edit]

I don't know who wrote this section, but it's very good. Thanks!

  • Well thank you. (And I've never actually read the Communist Manifesto -- that's just the 25-cent version that I should have learned in Social Studies...) EVDebs 13:54, 22 July 2007 (CDT)
