  •  Yeah, there will definitely be a dose of Marx (3+ / 0-)

    At least when it comes to overproduction.  But I think that concerns about climate change, ecology and sustainability give some of his concerns a fresh new take.  And Marx has some real philosophical problems that I won't go into here very much, the chief among them being that if material conditions determine everything and consciousness is just a byproduct, it makes no sense for Marxists trying to go out and educate people for change--the material conditions will eventually create a revolution (by the Marxist line of thinking) whether there are any Marxists or not.
