"To the Finland Station": Origins of Socialism

Part II finds Wilson backtracking to explain the Origins of Socialism.

I'll shorten this part (no page per person) to the breadcrumb trail of a list: Babeuf, Saint-Simon, Fourier, Owen, Enfantin, Marx.

I've just started on Marx and, as you can guess, he's going to get a lot of ink. If Lenin is the hero of this story, Marx is the scaffold.

Who or what is the rope and noose?

Marx quote from Finland:
The philosophers hitherto have only interpreted the world in various ways: the thing is, however, to change it.
