The following is a paper that I wrote for an intro to political theory college class, and because I’m lazy, it is this week’s edition of THE TRUTH! My T.A. enjoyed it. So will you.

Karl Marx and John Locke are among the world’s greatest philosophers, yet their ideas about the world and how it should work are just about completely opposite from each other. Marx is anti-religion, anti-free market, and pro-beard, while Locke is pro-religion (with exceptions), pro-free market, and anti-beard. Putting the facial hair issue aside, it is clear from the evidence that Locke’s ideas are far superior and more practical.
