NYU Hosting Two-Week Long Celebration of Karl Marx’s Birthday

NYU Hosting Two-Week Long Celebration of Karl Marx’s Birthday

“will feature a number of performances and events”

So many college students are embracing the idea of socialism. The cause is a total mystery. By the way, NYU isn’t even doing this in the right month.

Campus Reform reports:

NYU hosts Marx birthday bash…during the wrong month

New York University is hosting a two-week celebration of Karl Marx’s May 5 birthday Oct. 17-28.

NYU Skirball, formally known as the Jack H. Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, will host a two-week celebration of the communist philosopher in commemoration of his 200th birthday.

The birthday bash, titled “On Your Marx,” will feature a number of performances and events, including a “dance party,” a professor-led lecture on “racial capitalism,” and a performance highlighting socialism.

Admission to these events will be free, and students will be instructed to “pay-what-you-think-it’s-worth,” according to the NYU Skirball. Attendees will receive a note featuring the cost of every facet of production and can then decide upon the production’s value, representing its demand, a process that the event description suggests will help artists learn how to earn money.

This structure is based on Marx’s philosophy encompassed in a quote featured on the event website: “The writer must earn money in order to be able to live and write, but he must by no means live and write for the purpose of making money.”

College kids go to free events, particularly if there is free food. I’ll bet they don’t collect a penny.

When will they be celebrating the murders of 125M to 150M people by their own Marx inspired governments in the 20th century?

The college is providing the “free” beer.

If I attend and think they owe me $5000 for wasted time, emotional suffering, and insulted intelligence, will they pay me?

Seriously, a truly socialistic event would be handing out money at the door. These are posers, pure and simple.

I guess Hollywood hasn’t gotten the true Marxist message.

“Yay, let’s celebrate a man who came up with and promoted Socialism! Oh, what….Huh? Marx never actually lived under the system of government he invented and promoted? He actually lived most of his life in luxury in London, England? He never actually go to see the oppression that his ideas wrought?

Well…in that case enjoy the eats!”

Can you go in and ask for a refund of your tuition and fees that were used to produce this event without your consent?

In many ways, this is shocking that this isn’t shocking.
