Death to Capitalism? Visitors to Marx’s Grave Balk at Fee London cemetery charges fee to see late communist’s memorial

The Wall Street Journal – October 25, 2015

HIGHGATE CEMETERY, LONDON—On a summer visit to the grave of Karl Marx, Ben Gliniecki found that he would have to pay £4, or about $6, to pay respects to the man who sounded the death knell for private property.Mr. Gliniecki, a Marxist, said no. “Personally, I think it is disgusting,” the 24-year-old political activist said. “There are no depths of irony, or bad taste, to which capitalists won’t sink if they think they can make money”

Walk the talk; heed the creed,
“From each according to his need.”
