“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.

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.”
