Vive la Commune

In order to affirm the rights
We should overcome the kings
And all clicks to them.
More good God, of Jesus!
Priests.... One should not any any more!
Live the Commune!
Live the Commune!

Vive la Commune (1928) Posted by Hello
"The Marxist theory fails to anticipate the inevitable rise of an oligarchy in a news society, partly because it has utopian ideas of idiyllic relations in such a society, which obviate the necessity of the use of any form of coercive power; and partly because it identifies economic power too absolutely with the power of private ownership." (Reinhold Neibuhr, The Children of Light and the Children of Darkness: a vindication of democracy and a critique of it traditional defense (1944).)
