    Marx would obliterate Socrates (who wasn't even a real philosopher, but a local madman)

    The problem of capital and the inherent human need to accumulate was already solved by Diogenes.

    Socrates would try to trap Marx (PBUH) with baby-tier word games, and Marx (PBUH), a student of Hegel, would obliterate the primitive logician with 19th century dialectics, in much the same way the Native Americans were obliterated by their European settlers through the use of firearms and diseases.

    Marx would ask Socrates to borrow some money and Socrates would ask Marx why he needs it so bad and they would go back and forth until one of them dies of old age

    Socrates would just ask Marx a bunch of questions and expose his constant contradictions along the way. You can find like four in the first two chapters of Das Capital.

    Socrates would unironically tell marx to frick off and get job, probably call him a loser aswell. Afterwards marx most likely would kill himself either that or starve because socrates argument was to good to counter.

        You don't need to understand what they are saying, just watch them perform to see how Chinese today manage to syncretize completely different ideas together. Even more absurd if you consider that during the Maoist era Confucianism was persecuted.

    Marx: Hallo!

    Marx would become a strawman for socrates to beat the shit out of because Plato is the one writing about the debate

    Socrates would probably wrestle Marx and then say ownership belongs to people who have military superiority.

    >Marx: Everyone starves to death and no one is happy.
    >Socrates: I see. And what of others? Has anyone else tried to do it?
    >Marx: A nation called the United States of America made a unique attempt.
    >Socrates: And?
    >Marx: It has been slowly subdued by infiltrators from within.
    >Socrates: Has no one come close?
    >Marx: Well, a nation called Britain has a sort of post-monarchistic democracy which has at least some roots in your ideas.
    >Socrates: That's something at least, but you don't look very cheerful about it.
