One may well participate in the Capitalist system, while working to introduce a Socialist system - just as the first Capitalists worked within a Feudal system while working to introduce Capitalism.

Perhaps the more pertinent question is:

Is it possible to be a Christian while owning a house and over 1 million in the bank?


I would say yes, since the sum mentioned is not huge. But the Catholic Church might do well to meditate on it.

You certainly couldn't have joined the Early Christian Church while keeping so much wealth for yourself. Of course, owning a home worth a million might not be such a big deal these days. It could be a small little kip.

......And Marx sponged off him all his life.....:sneaky:

Not at all. Engels understood the magnificent value of Marx's work and he was delighted to be able to allow that world historic work to continue. Of course, Engels had a fine mind himself, and contributed not only money but his own labour.
