Where are the hardy comrades? Well, they just seem to be living in the hiding of Highgate Cemetry
where the poor red soul of Communism's founding father Karl Marx is resting still in fear of- vandalism which is going on from the late 1970s and has occurred on a numerous equation.
The situation has turned out to be so peculiar that his highly coveted grave is under 24X7 video surveillance. It has already been vandalized two times this year with no major trace of the notorious attackers who just seem to be high on the fever of hate, jealousy, and evilness. Why is Karl Marx is hated now even when communism has almost vanished from the entire world and every communist state from the People's Republic Of China to Vietnam who just acts in contrast to what Marxism really stands for.
The Marx Grave Trust seems to be ready to deter the vandalists but the chances seem to be less on the part for them being caught. It is to be noted that most tombs of illustrious people are monitored via webcam feed. If we trace the history then Marx himself complained that he was followed by Prussian spies who had eyes on each of his activities. This was during the time he stayed in London.
Last year's January saw a massive attack on his grave and the marble plaque was smashed which mentioned his name and just two weeks it was seen that the following words were marked on the gravestone-"Architect Of Genocide, Doctrine of HATE".
Why so much hate against a person who lived his life caring and crying for the proletariat class of laborers, farmers and poor people who still barely able to survive their livelihood.
Marx's grave is indeed a pilgrimage site for the communist believers and Marxists throughout the globe. He is seen as a visionary for the society with a prolonged concept of communism at every stage of life for the society, communist party, community state, and people.
The camera might not be watching the dead Karl Marx inside the grave but it will be looking for the attackers who might come to damage Marx's legacy which is disputed and acknowledged by his haters as well his appreciators. For now, the hit out at Marx's grave is very grief centric.
