Happy Day

It's time for a Fifth of May fête once more:
Does it require deep intuition to comprehend that man's ideas, views and conceptions, in one word, man's consciousness, changes with every change in the conditions of his material existence, in his social relations and in his social life?

What else does the history of ideas prove, than that intellectual production changes its character in proportion as material production is changed? The ruling ideas of each age have ever been the ideas of the ruling class.
I'm pouring out a cervesa for you, friend, on my memories of the street in front of that little house in Trier.
