Why is a marxist paper "borrowing" from Marx?

The Mount road Marxist has always stood for Marx. What an irony that N.Ram now has to "borrow" from Marx. Is it because Marx has ditched marxism to turn capitalist, and started charging copyright fees for all his quotes?

The Hindu : Opinion / Editorials : Vicious parochialism
To borrow from Marx’s ironic observation, drawing from Hegel, history repeats itself, “the first time as tragedy, the second as farce.”

By quoting Marx and Hegel, the Chief perhaps wants to impress folks that he is not only a Mount Road Marxist, but also a mighty left intellectual. Of course, he knows and folks know only too well that Marx, Hegel et al are now museum show pieces. Still, old habits die hard.

Hey all ,
i had been to maraimalainagar near chennai last week and happened to see the mamoth facility Chindu has built.It seems they have shifted the entire press from mount road.

Any idea whether they are going to convert the Mount road office to a Chinese embassy!!

My source within Chindu has gone silent these days. So I am not getting much information. It would be interesting to know the grapevine.

You guys must do your homework. My sources in Chindu tell me that Ram didntsponsor that quote
