Gavin McCrea: “To celebrate May Day is to remember Marx, who showed us what capitalism is.”

“Every year, on May Day, a spectre comes to haunt us. The spectre of Karl Marx. He’s been coming since 1889, when the Second International first chose 1 May as the date for International Workers’ Day. … His presence makes us uncomfortable. He reminds us of difficult things.  Over the years, we’ve done our best to exorcise him. … It’s time we faced up to the ghost: May Day is Marx Day, whether we like it or not.”
