Your smug intellectualism is disgusting and offensive!
The difference is context. They are exact opposites.
In the Thatcher quote she alerting the citizenry the even in a capitalist economy, the STATE is stealing what they earned through their collective labor. In the Marx quote, Marx is attempting to divide and manipulate the citizenry by defining capitalism as some sort of evil existence where the RICH are exploiting the poor so that he may confiscate the wealth under the ruse the state as the solution to all of their problems.
Thatcher is warning about the perils of a state run economy and Marx is warning about the perils of a free market capitalist economy.
AND YOU are creating moral relativism between Marxism/Communism and Capitalism. And by reference you are attacking the fabric of our society, and belittling the purpose of the lives of hundreds of thousands of Americans that sacrificed on battlefields all over the world since WWII fighting against the ideology that the left promotes today.
Go peddle your --censor-- somewhere else.
And you SP, quit picking on Norton. We don't (or at least we didn't) attack people on their religious beliefs in America. There is a reason why it's covered in the FIRST amendment. They are not arbitrarily arranged! The were arranged in order of priority. Talk about bigotry, you just railed on Norton (and other Christians) with hate and generalizations like some sort of KKK/Nazi.
Let me help you see the errors in your ways:
Beware of Norton and [black], people. They pretend to be [normal], all the while spewing hatred and racism. They're not [normal]. They're just evil people. They claim they want [xyz], but they want [abc]. They want the government to give preference to [them]. They want the government to promote only their [cause]. They want the government to [xyz]. There's nothing [good] about their government. They represent everything bad and disgusting in America.
This is bigotry defined. I certainly hope that was sarcasm.
