Valerie and I went for a walk in the park today, and who should we see but Marx and Engels facing each other (and Lenin was not far away on his pedestal). It’s still remarkable to me that these men are honored in Russia.

And yet, today I saw a Bentley and a Rolls Royce at our building; Marx and Engels would be quite sad that Russia hasn’t progressed through the dialectic of class struggle and arrived at stateless society. I, however, am not surprised.
