If this isn't the lousiest piece of crap journalism, I don't know what is:

"Marx's erupting skin may have influenced writings

LONDON (Reuters) - Karl Marx, who complained of excruciating boils, actually suffered from a chronic skin disease with known psychological effects that may well have influenced his writings, a British expert said on Tuesday.

Sam Shuster, professor of dermatology at the University of East Anglia, believes the revolutionary thinker had hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) in which the apocrine sweat glands -- found mainly in the armpits and groin -- become blocked and inflamed.

"In addition to reducing his ability to work, which contributed to his depressing poverty, hidradenitis greatly reduced his self-esteem," said Shuster, who published his findings in the British Journal of Dermatology.

"This explains his self-loathing and alienation, a response reflected by the alienation Marx developed in his writing."

While HS is linked to boil-like lumps, the painful condition also causes more widespread infection, swelling, skin thickening and scarring.

It could also explain a number of Marx's other complaints, not previously linked, such as joint pain and a painful eye condition which often stopped him working.

Shuster based his diagnosis on an analysis of Marx's extensive correspondence, in which he wrote to friends about his health and described his skin lesions as "curs" and "swine."

"The bourgeoisie will remember my carbuncles until their dying day," Marx told Friedrich Engels in a letter from 1867.

Marx, who died in 1883, was one of the most influential philosophers of the 19th century and his radical writings formed the basis of modern communism."

Bottom line: The man who exposed CAPITALISM for what it is and wrote "Das Kapital"/"The CAPITAL" - suffered of boils on his balls when he wrote his books, therefore nothing he wrote is true, and we shall all live happily ever after.
Especially after US/UK created communism and subsidized it and experimented with "population control".

That's right. Blame it on the dead, UK. Wash your hands as you did with India and oh, so many other so called "Commonwealth" countries.

The proof is in the pudding, again.

This sounds like the work of one of those nutcases who thinks that the government destroyed one of their own crown jewels of corruption by somehow persuading Saudi nationals to kill themselves in exchange for money by crashing commercial aircraft in to the twin towers.
Blessed is he who shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is his brother's keeper. And I will strike down those who attempt to destroy my brothers and you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.
