The most popular criticisms, misjudgments and misunderstandings
200 years of Karl Marx, 150 years of Capital, 100 years of the Russian Revolution - on the occasion of the anniversaries, assessments and commentaries on the work of the great thinker appear almost daily. As a rule, Marx is criticized and rejected. And when he is appreciated then only with a certain patronizing indulgence.
After all, almost everyone agrees: Marx was mostly wrong. He prophesied the downfall of capitalism, they say. His work describes only a certain historical phase and is based on an outdated theory of labour values. Marx wanted to nationalize everything, he ignored the oppression and exploitation of women as well as the ecological question and instead glorified industrial progress.
Some of these judgments are at least questionable, some simply wrong, some criticisms hit a sore spot. As familiar as the name Marx is to many, his work is often unknown. The aim of this volume is to provide information in a concise and easy-to-understand form and to encourage people to engage with Marx´ theory. Did he really prophesy the progressive impoverishment of Arbeiter∗innen?
Are there no classes and no more exploitation today? Does a direct path lead from his theory to the Gulag? Whether and to what extent Marx was right is not only of historical interest. For the attitude to his analyses still divides the political camps all over the world today. And on the basis of Marx´ Werk the question is still being discussed: Is another world possible?
