S Cat:

And you can't find similar for Marx ? It's not just in North Korea that leaders have been elevated to 'supreme being' status in the name of politics......just look at the way Lenin was embalmed and given his own mausoleum as if he were some pharaoh.

What the hell has Marx to do with North Korea? Or did you mean that Marx's ideas have been distorted and misrepresented by Lenin and others, and then glorified? I suspect the latter.

The Dali Lama can speak for himself. Marx died in 1883.
