Karl Marx Quote
Prominent because of the flatness of the surrounding countryside.
This aspersion is to be found cast against John Stuart Mill, the English philosopher and social reformer, in Das Kapital, Vol. 1, Chap. 16 (1867). After having demolished one of Mill's arguments, Marx says: 'On a level plain, simple mounds look like hills; and the insipid flatness of our present bourgeoisie is to be measured by the altitude of its great intellects.'
