Odd fact, Marx had it in for Capitalists because  a Capitalist by nature was someone who would rather save their money than spend it.  And that was a bad thing, because a person who would rather save their money than spend it obviously had no conception of all the wonderful things that money could buy -- i.e. only an idiot would choose saving money over expending it and thereby living their life to the fullest.
