Another Perspective on Social Justice

The tomb of Karl Marx at London’s Highgate cemetery has been vandalised in a targeted attack that means the Grade I-listed monument will “never be the same again”. . . . Ian Dungavell, the chief executive of the Friends of Highgate Cemetery Trust, condemned the attack as “an appalling thing to do” and a “particularly inarticulate form of political comment”, warning that the tomb would be permanently scarred.
'Tis the spirit of the age, no? Reaping the whirlwind

Based on what some historians have suggested, and since Marx's ideology is arguably responsible for the deaths and suffering of millions, then this act of vandalism is justified. Of course, I don't believe that, but it's only logical and reasonable, assuming one is governed by logic and reason. But, these days, that's a huge assumption.
