Charles Brown wrote, "Once they [Marx and Engels] were were atheists,
then 'naturally' they looked for natural explanations of human affairs.
They looked for necessity in human events. They reasoned they in biology
is the root necessity in human society."

The genius of Marx, Engels (and all the earlier socialists, as well, if
the truth be told) was the recognition that there is absolutely nothing
"natural" about the capitalist system.  Nothing in humanity or nature to
make what we see around us a "necessity."

The search for "natural" rationalizations of human affair has
historically been a preoccupation of the ideologues of capitalism.
