We are all Marxists



I just finished reading David McLellan’s monumental biography of Karl Marx. It’s a fascinating account of Marx’s life and work set against the volatile political and economic backdrop of 19th Century Europe. It’s incredible how he (and his family) endured through years of poverty, privation, and ill health to produce a monumental philosophy that attempts to explain the fundamental economic workings of society. Marx’s weaving of history, philosophy, sociololgy, science and of course economics has profoundly affected the way we all see the world; so that in a sense we are all now Marxists.
