It’s so God damn simple. Just seize private property and guarantee incomes. I’ve been a fool.—

It does seem so simple now. Writing in Rolling Stone Friday, Jesse A. Myerson breaks down the “Five Economic Reforms Millennials Should Be Fighting For.” Just five?
Well, along with guaranteed work for everybody, Myerson argues that millennials should “take back the land” from landlords (“landlords blow”) and “make everything owned by everybody” (because “hoarders blow”). For the record, unemployment and Wall Street also blow.
Many are wondering: is Myerson simply paraphrasing Karl Marx, or is the piece an elaborate parody of Karl Marx?
Myerson popped up on Twitter to defend his piece, suggesting it’s not a parody at all.
