    Karl Marx made the same analogy between the usurping executive and the aggressive seducer in one of his finest works, his history of the destruction of the French Second Republic, The XVIIIth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte.

      I have never read anything by Karl Marx.  I think it's about time.  I found The XVIIIth Brumaire on marxists.org.  Time for me to go be dangerously unAmerican by, you know, reading.
