Dead Italian Marxist Intellectual Comments on US Politics

Until today the City of Denver planned to supply the Democratic National Committee with tax free gas in support of their convention to be held later this year. That has changed when it was pointed that not only it was unfair, but illegal. See this story for more on that. Of interest most of the comments on the article are against this. The person most vocal in support of the DNC is a gentleman called Antonio Gramsci. He is a famous Italian Marxist scholar of the early Twentieth Century. He is quite dead thanks to the Il Duce. It is not just a coincidence of names as the photo the commentator uses is of Signore Gramsci. It is a weird world. For more on Gramsci see this.
