I have made it a point to stay away from discussing politics on this website, as it’s something that can become so polarizing and cause a lot of stress.
And as you all know, I’m for things that manage stress and encourage stress relief and keep you far away from High Density Lifestyle mode.
I’m trying to help you live a Low Density Lifestyle, and I know if I start sharing my political beliefs, it’s bound to make some of you quite uptight.
But I’ve decided I can’t hold back anymore. Even though this series is about humor and laughter, I’ve decided to let it all hang out and tell you where I’m coming from.
And no, I’m not telling you this because I’ve been taking too much Despondex.
And so here’s the real deal: yes, I’m an avowed Marxist. And not only do I think the Marxist approach is the best approach, I believe it’s something that should be taught in school right from kindergarten.
And in these recessionary times, what better approach is there to adopt than Marxism?
Let’s delve into this further. What does Marx have to teach us? Such things as:
***Why a Duck?
***There ain’t no Sanity Clause
***Never join a club that would have you as a member
Huh, you say? You don’t remember this from your copy of Das Kapital? Well, if you’ve been reading Das Kapital, then you’ve got the wrong Marx, brother.
I’m talking the real Marx Doctrine: the world according to Groucho, Chico, Harpo, and occasionally Zeppo.
This is the type of Marxism we need!
The Brothers Marx were masters of inspired Zen lunacy, and to this day, the likes of what they did has never been repeated.
They took comedy, humor and laughter to a whole new visionary level. It was enlightened humor, the type that easily puts you into Low Density Lifestyle mode.
And that’s the kind of Marxist approach we need now more than ever, brother (and sister).
Oh, and by the way, if I think about it even more, I’m not just a Marxist, but a Marxist-Leninist. Or more correctly, a Marxist-Lennonist, as in John, the man behind All You Need is Love, Across the Universe and Imagine.
He was a man with vision, and if there’s anything the world needs now, it’s people with vision. These are the true Low Density Lifestylers.
I say: how about starting a movement, the Marxist Zen lunacy humor movement, or the Marxist-Lennonist visionary movement?
Either way, it’s time we all become avowed Marxists.
For your viewing and laughing pleasure, here are three classics of the Marx Brothers in action:
This clip is the Stateroom Scene from “A Night at the Opera”:
This clip is the Contract Scene between Groucho and Chico, also from “A Night at the Opera.” It contains the famous “Sanity Clause”:
This is the Mirror Scene from “Duck Soup”:
Hip Hip hooray for Zen Lunacy! Wooo hooo.
I am also a fan of Sicilian Zen (my creation) and during the election last fall I endorsed Bugs Bunny. Boy, were some people hopping mad about that!
I just updated my Twitter page to let my followers know I am sitting here wearing a bug hat and a clown nose. When I have bills to pay (often a stressful scenario) I dress up in some way. I look splendid in my hat and the nose matched is perfectly.

I’ll bet Elmer Fudd wasn’t too happy to hear about your Bugs Bunny endorsement!
