  •  I love Marx, for real (3+ / 0-)

    I'm with Jon Elster, that Marx and Darwin are the two surpassing geniuses of 19th century thought.  (This leaves aside the more technical/practical figures, like Faraday or Brunel, who play in a different league.)  But that's totally unrelated to whether or not Marx has any utility in understanding today's world (yes, in my opinion, but somewhat cut down to size vs. his utility in understanding his own world), or whether his prescriptions and predictions have any merit (overwhelmingly, they don't).  

    You know, I sometimes think if I could see, I'd be kicking a lot of ass. -Stevie Wonder at the Glastonbury Festival, 2010
