This Day in the History of Evil
Labels: Karl Marx
Is this a fair analysis? However wrongheaded Marx's philosophy may have been, he was not responsible for its implementation nor for the the excesses of those who did try and implement it.
is the prophet Mohammed ( PBUH sarcasm on ) ultimately responsible for the actions of extremist islamists.......in my book....yes.
Also, if you do hold them responsible, you can also reasonably hold Plato responsible for many of the evils of communism. I submit that down that road lies madness.
I'm not seeing the connection right off the bat here, Doug. Aren't lessons of economics timeless and available to perceptive individuals in every age? Didn't Adam Smith's work predate Marx?
