Yeah, there are a lot more foods that are truly German and not Austrian. It's Weiner schnitzel, for pete's sake, not Munchen schnitzel. Go with currywurst or something.

Of course, this is my point of view. I've read a couple of his books and, as a socialist, I think he has very good ideas for a better society and producing means to look after everyone in a fairer way. Unfortunately, capitalism has a stranglehold on the majority of civilisation and Marx's views and ideas have been vilified in the press/media/school education for decades. I remember as a teenager Karl Marx being mentioned and my initial thought was 'he was a bad man'. I then thought to myself, why was he bad? What did he do? I recall not knowing much about him, which made me think that my school had painted him out to be evil and/or press/media had portrayed him as evil i.e. brainwashing me from young. Fortunately, I had enough sense to look into things for myself and form my own opinion. Capitalism is powered by greed and selfishness (two traits I don't particularly hold in much esteem) and this is the problem with humanity, in my opinion. Apologies for the "deep" comment :)

Nothing wrong with Marx's ideas except he is dealing with human beings. The same way 'Danny Wozza' that you don't sell everything you have and distribute it to the poor people in your city. It is OK for everyone else but not for you. Even Marx did not walk around in a sheet like Gandhi and why Union Officials and top Socialists drive around in big cars. You only have to see the life style of so called 'communist leaders' to realise it's not in the human nature.

Malbaby - it sounds as if you heard a few clichés and now you base your image of Marx upon them. What he said amounts to a tiny little bit more than, "Duh, rich people are evil" (and he wouldn't even have said that). His works are valuable at least as a critique of capitalism. "Pure" socialism may not work but modern Western societies incorporate socialist ideas. We don't have "pure" capitalism either.

It's very sad that people are so poorly educated as to think Karl Marx's ideas are anywhere near good, let alone "brilliant."

I agree with Malbaby on this one. People won't accept a socialist/communist system for long. Call it greed, envy, ambition, or whatever. Very few people are satisfied with having just what they need. They want what they want whether it's a car, house, swimming pool, or a Rolex. The desire for the extra things in life is what motivates many people to have those things even when others around them are just surviving. If there is a "pure" form of any system, I'm not aware of it.

Marx was a notorious philosopher, economist, sociologist...I would not call him an "Agitator", even if I am not a big fan of his ideas...It's disrespectful for his work !

Okay, this is for you Schnitzel people: You will find Schnitzel on every German restaurants menu so wherever it originated from you could say it's typical German cuisine. Maybe choosing a picture of a Wiener Schnitzel was unwise but the answer itself is just Schnitzel so I don't see anything wrong with that. There are many different types of Schnitzel with very different origins.
