Michael Totten has posted part two of his interview with Christopher Hitchens. Excerpt:

Hitchens: Karl Marx’s best writing in [sic] on America. He said it was the great new country for worker’s equality. There was free land for the peasants. It was republican, not monarchical, and it was anti-imperialist. If you look at Henry Adams’ memoirs, when his father was at the embassy in London, the Times of London was in favor of the Confederacy. Gladstone helped the Confederacy build a navy. Karl Marx, meanwhile, said Lincoln is our man. The United States is our future. That’s not what they teach you in school about Marx.

MJT: That’s not what the communists taught their kids, either.

Hitchens: Well, that’s true to an extent.

MJT: I mean the schools in the Soviet Union.

Hitchens: For Marxists, Russia was the heart of darkness.
