Conservatives often fault Marx for making predictions (which he
actually never made) that did not prove true.  Nonetheless, in writing
about the nature of capitalism, he almost inadvertently, he clearly
laid out the logic, which made Citizens United inevitable.

"In bourgeois society capital is independent and has individuality,
while the living person is dependent and has no individuality."
