«His ideas will live as long as capitalism»


the importance of Karl Marx decades and decades later lies in the fact that he was the only thinker of his time who understood what capital was and analyzed it in such riveting detail explaining its laws of motion creating a whole philosophical and economic school based on these thoughts which still exists how long will Marx’s ideas lost I think they will last as long as capitalism does every time there is a crisis as after the 2008 Wall Street Crash Marx was on the front pages of Newsweek on the bestseller lists in Germany being read again who people wanted to understand how capitalism work even capitalists many capitalists and their ideologues had to turn to Marx so we will only give up and when I say we I mean those who are anti-capitalist and those anti-capitalist who will follow us will only give up on marks when capitalism ends and then we can put his books away for the museums and the libraries but one other thing is important to understand about Marx he’s so political economy as political economy and his writings his political writings on Europe in the 19th century his writings on the Paris Commune his writings on the victory of the fake Bonaparte are fantastic pieces of analytical and models for young journalists today understanding what the ruling class is many on the Left ignore the ruling class the ruling class has always to be analyzed in great detail so as to understand how its opponents get march forward together and one last thing if you read Marxist world capital especially but many many of the other texts you see that his mind is suffused with the classical literature’s of ancient Greece and Rome he read literature very closely and very deeply and there are more references in his work to classical literature than in those of most other contemporary thinkers of his time he was a rounded out man and so we remember him for all these qualities and for us he will never go away
