Mao & Marx

Mao must be turning over in his grave what with a new theme park being planned for Tibet.  And then there are the gated subdivisions of the super rich around Beijing with garages filled with Cadillacs.
Likewise Marx and Lenin must be wincing in disbelief at the Russian fasionistas who are the best customers for the high fashion houses of Paris and Milano.  I won't live long enough to see the next revolution, but it will surely come.

At the same time, both Mao and Marx were co-opted by people who managed the workers paradise in ways that gave them outsized benefits. Will any revolution survive the temptations of human greed?
