A hip-hop song titled “Marx Is a Post-90s,” which was originally written for a television show, has gone viral across Chinese social media. The song was written and produced by post-80s and post-90s youngsters—China's millennial generation. Released in March, the song has introduced the late, great icon to a new generation of young people.
A number of netizens have commented that this phenomenon does not seem to fit the stereotype that post-80s and post-90s generations are ideologically pluralistic. Nevertheless, young people tend to have a great spirit for criticism and skepticism, just like Marx in his youth. Young people's sense of justice and responsibility, as well as their desire for freedom, is reflected in many of Marx's beliefs.
Some people believe Marxist doctrine is outdated, while others label it as "brainwashing." However, the song proves that Marx continues to appeal to youth, and will never completely go out of style.
