thinking about that guy on Reddit that said that when Karl Marx said "a spectre is haunting Europe" he meant an actual ghost, who is giant

@wintgenstein @ghostwife Um I actually want to see the version of marxism that this person is talking about

@wintgenstein @ghostwife i think my favourite part of this is the translation of 'geist' as 'ghost'

@ghostwife the best part is that he was linked on r/badphilosophy and someone found an article on slatestarcodex that probably gave him the idea of the spectre of communism being an actual planet-sized ghost

@ghostwife yeah i found it, this is probably the article he got the idea from. scooter's since edited it to say "i didn't LITERALLY mean that marx thought communism would be created by a ghost, just that its like the invisible hand of the market".

@ghostwife we can get Stirner in there too if we say the ghost is named Society
