7. Yeah
Edited on Thu Mar-18-10 11:17 PM by miscsoc
MarxISM is terrible, especially the soviet-influenced quasi-religious version most self-declared marxist groups promulgate nowadays. For all that I'd still say he's REALLY worth reading, (his own words, not the words of his professed disciples) as long as you read him as a nineteenth century genius trying to understand the world in his own flawed way, and not as some sort of infallible god. Even in his lifetime he was guilty of playing to his own "guru" status, but that doesn't detract from the fact that "Capital" is just an amazing work, that can help you towards a better understanding of society.
