His Majesty: “It takes one to know one.”
Karl Marx summed up Communism as “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.” … … [T]he saying implies but does not name the effective agency of its supposed utopia.

I understand why Big Crime and their fat-cat publicists would push this sort of thing, but I have to think their advertisement will backfire with the public, who are, after all, a bunch of racists. They should have used a white criminal.
