    1. It sounds familiar. Ergo it's from the Manfesto I assume. I haven't read enough other stuff by Marx, with my eyes open at least, to recognize it otherwise.

    3. Wow. I have no memory of that at all. Of course that could be said for most stuff I read. And yet try as I might I simply cannot forget Dune.
