  The Ishmael Community: Questions and Answers

The Question (ID Number 427)...

    Has Marxism influenced your thinking in any way, and what is your opinion of it?

    ...and the response:

    Karl Marx was as much a captive of the Great Forgetting as, say, Freud or Ayn Rand. All of them "knew" that we are not humanity, but none of them let this interfere with creating systems based on the assumption that we are in fact humanity. Why would I study Marx's theory of what works in human society when I can study what in fact worked in human society for three million years?
