    READ BEFORE YOU POST!
    I have read a great deal of Karl Marx's work over the years. It is largely nonsense. A snippet here or there is irrelevant to that larger point.

    Was Karl Marx right about capitalism?
    He was so wrong about many things.

    He wasn't a Scientist or a Scholar or a even a exceptionally intelligent human.

    He didn't use data or objective analysis to pove his theories.

    Just a crazy old man with more beard thsn brain

    You quoted someone talking about what Karl Marx said, and totally ignored the actual Karl Marx quote, InFact you ignored the entire argument of what Karl Marx was right about and threw a Red Herring, i.e. arguing about something totally unrelated.

    I have no idea - I have never read 'Marx'.

    I don't 'read' people...I read facts/data/events and make my own conclusions.

    Re: Was Karl Marx Right About Capitalism?

    Marx's observation that the worker under capitalism is a mere commodity was on mark. The object of labor do not exist for the sake of the worker, but the worker exists for the sake of the objects of labor. Thus the worker's labor becomes an alien object which confronts him and over which he has little or no control. Thus, the worker wanders from place to place, like a pitiful puppy looking for a home, seeking employment. Frequently, he must take whatever is offered to him, regardless of whether it is something he likes or not. If he does not like what he is given, he must endure regardless, as there is no sympathy. If he complains, he is labeled a cry baby. And even if he may take some satisfaction in his work, he is confronted constantly with the fear of unemployment, because the capitalist cares little about him as a person, but rather how much surplus value can be extracted from his labor.

    Nonsense. Marx lived before democracy and human, civil, labor and environmental rights. These developments were unforeseen by him and they invalidate his monarch-era rants.

    Yep, they get everything ass backwards. Then they "dap" each other as if they have really accomplished something. Amazing!

    Reduced to no more than an ignorant fool who will eat the feces from another human's anus for money, the pathetic worker will defend this brutal system that has reduced him to such a pitiful state.
