Karl Marx (1818)

Though largely ignored during his lifetime, Marx was perhaps one of the most influential figures in history. His ideas, particularly those he expounded in his two most notable works, The Communist Manifesto and Das Kapital, have become the core intellectual tradition for communism and socialism, and many scholars consider him the founder of economic history and sociology. His philosophy significantly influenced communist thinking for the next century. What anarchist was his enemy? More...

Applause Happy birthday, Karl Marx!
You just forgot to take into account extremely addictive and erratic human nature that first has to be dealt with... Greed in economy is the root of all evil on this planet, and you have dissected it so well that many fear and hate your honesty... they like the greed in themselves... If you have seen how the communists have distorted your honest analysis in good faith, you would definitely respond back, and prohibit them from marring and misusing the term "communism"... served the equally corrupt, exploiting capitalists to beat their chest...

I don't like him either his ideas proved to be wrong but some of his quotes are interesting like this one



Society does not consist of individuals but expresses the sum of interrelations, the relations within which these individuals stand.

It is a common fault to read philosophers out of their historical context: we tend to try to make them address our needs without understanding theirs.

When Marx speaks of ‘revolution’ we tend anachronistically to think of the Russian Revolution, which was carried out in his name, although Marx was no longer around to see it. But the model of revolutionary practice that he advocated was based on an event that happened before he was born: the French Revolution of 1789. It is that historic event we need to consider when trying to understand Marx’s own perspective: he should be seen less as the prophet of 1917 than as the heir of 1789.

Roger Caldwell rediscovers the bookish revolutionist.
