Just a coincidence?

So in the past two days we have had a flurry of Marxists entering the Republic of Blogs, first Building the Socialist Republic of Heaven and then Socialism In An Age of Waiting.

Within 24 hours of these revolutionary developments, Blogshares, the fantasy stock market for weblogs, collapsed and announced it was closing down.

What next? Blogger taken under democratic workers control? Instapundit arrested and charged with being an enemy of the people?

Meanwhile back in the real world – there really is an attempt to end American hegemony of the means of production, distribution and exchange on the Internet.
