When will this economist be cancelled?

We all know that many on the love cancelling historical figures because views of 200 years ago are different today. George Washington, Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson have all been targets, let alone Cecil Rhodes.

But here’s one that they have not yet targeted. Here is his record:

  • “The Jewish nigger Lassalle who, I’m glad to say, is leaving at the end of this week, has happily lost another 5,000 talers in an ill-judged speculation”
  • “his mother or paternal grandmother interbred with a nigger”
  • “The bill of exchange is the real of the Jew”
  • “The misfortune to be inhabited by a conglomerate of different races and nationalities, of which it is hard to say which is the least fit for progress and civilization”
  • “Is it a misfortune that magnificent California was seized from the lazy Mexicans did not know what to do with it?”

said all this? One Karl Marx.
