Friedrich Engels with Karl Marx and Marx’s his three daughters (L-R) Jenny, Eleanor & Laura
Upon his death in 1883 and burial in the Highgate cemetery, Engels delivered the funeral address, saying in part:
“The greatest living thinker, has ceased to think. . . An immeasurable loss has been sustained both by the militant proletariat in Europe and America, and by historical science . . .Just as Darwin has discovered the law of the development of organic nature, so Marx discovered the law of the development of history. . . For Marx was before all else a revolutionist. His real mission in life was the overthrow of Capitalist society and the state institutions which had brought it into being. . . His name shall endure all through the ages, as will his work.”

Probably unknown to today’s revolutionary thugs, protesting and rioting in the streets of American cities, they are the practical applicators and intellectual progeny, along with their sponsors, of the bearded German utopian who saw them in his fevered imagination of the future, destroying the Christian civilization that produced them. What he did not see, was the Creator and Ruler of all the world using them for His own purposes, and to their own ultimate destruction.
