I'm sorry--when have I commented on anyone's spare time? I know I've commented on the total lack of academic documentation for #OccupyResoluteDesk, and remarked that he seems to be a decent father with a stable family life.
But I guess that would offend your Holy Narrative, so don't let facts trigger fretting.

Marx wanted to see the people who actually do things receive a better part of the pie and a better chance at their own destiny.

tl;dr: capitalism.

Marx's opposition in regards to private property lied in its runaway accumulation and how it aided in the oppression of workers, but he did not oppose private property on its own.
To ask such a binary question is absurd, really.

We're dancing around who owns the definition of "runaway accumulation". And it's not an absurd question. As this country has drifted in the collectivist direction, the system has been increasingly set against traditional private property notions. It would be silly to call the SCOTUS "Marxist", but I'd say that the overlap in the thinking between the two is slowly increasing. The idea that there is any federal basis for screwing around with individual education, housing, health care, retirement, &c is totally due to the Progressives.

If money can't buy happiness, I guess you'll just have to rent it.
