Was Marx a politician disguised as philosophier?

I know that there is a deep foot print of the his feet, under a desk in the British Library, but this could only suggest that he was working hard. My question: for what exactly? When you consider the man’s background, there is a real motivation to say that “philosophy should be used to change the world”. A motivated enough motivation to spend 40 years writting a book that uses philosophy to “change the world”. Half of the world did change, and what a blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaady disaster!

except that wasn’t Marx that happened. as far as I’ve ever been able to tell public ownership of property has Never really happened. What occurred miserably throughout the world was state ownership of Property.

Also, the great thing about Marx is that he shows us how Price hides so much information, probably more information than it reveals.

So what is he?
