There, I hope that sounds better.
They are still failed policies from stale dis-proven ideologies.
As far a Obama being a Marxist, there is nothing in his speech(or any other speech that he has made) that suggests that we should not maintain a strong capitalist/market system in this country. In a Marxist system there is no room for capitalism, and Obama has always been clear that he is a big proponent of capitalism.
I would agree with you, however, if you suggested that his comments hinted at the value and power of social collectivism. Certainly Obama believes, more so than many of the conservative business interests in this country, that government can and should provide a climate(infrastructure, schools, regulatory agencies, military, judicial system etc.) which will ultimately lay down soils upon which individual initiative(he actually mentions that very word in this speech) can have fertile ground in which to be sprout into successful businesses.
It's really not that radical of a concept: There are things that the free market is best left to, and things that the government is best left to and they both need one another to be successful. And, for the reasons that collective government has aided them in this regard, business leaders have a moral obligation to operate in the best interests of the society at large-not merely their own short-term economic interests. That's not Marxism, that's just common sense.
2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.
You seem irrelevant to this debate.
