: You're seriously telling me that Marx used teh word "masturbation"? I thought he was a Victorian for God's sake! WOW!
**I remember perusing a book of quotations years ago (May have been the Oxford Book of Quotations; or similiar) and finding Marx listed in the index. That was the quote attributed to him. You have to admit, it has that Marxian ring to it, IMO. I found it amusing that out of all the thousands of quotable quotes made by Marx, the editors of the book would select that one.
"Throwing the baby out with the bathwater" and "Voting with their feet" are two fairly common expressions coined by Lenin.
