7. Read Marx

 

not about marx. That is typically the problem. The things you're saying reflect that you have read about marx, not read marx. Marxism is not shock and awe ideology and pure marxism is the complete denial of ego, so the phrase "Let go of the ego" is quite strange. Lastly, marx was extremely practical and pragmatic which is way so much of our modern era has communistic and socialistic attributes (compared to previous historical era's naturally). Marx pragmatism comes across most dramatically when you read the letters between marx and engles. BTW-everything you hate about your job (whatever that job is) comes from the capitalistic ideology and everything you love about your job (hope there is something you love about your labor) is either socialistic or communistic. We are likely on the path marx described, just not on his timetable, and entering a global socialistic phase. For others interested in marx and who do not know about red to green theory, it is pretty cool. But, you need a fair about of training in marxism to fully get it. Lots of potential in R/G.
