Marxism Selling Well

In a move to make any economist's skull well up with blood and burst, the bookselling market shows that books by Karl Marx are selling well during this time of capitalistic collapse. Yes, a book by the communist writer, who advocated ownership of social collateral by the government so its profits can be shared by all, has fallen into the public domain and is being published by a private entity, who is seeing his profits grow due to book sales within a network of privately-run middlemen that ensure the book appears on the bookshelves of private businessowners, whose operations are being muted by the proliferance of big-box booksellers and online bookstores. If this trend continues, and more and more of American income is devoted to the purchase of Karl Marx' revolutionary tales of class inversion, we might just turn this economic downturn around.
