Conjuncturally, something between Keynesian policy and the effort for worldwide political stability through international diplomacy. Structurally, let the chips fall where they fall. When the means of production become obsolete for the current societies, they will break apart. Until now, capitalism has shown that it is a very flexible model for most of its crisis.

i won't discuss my "appreciation" of karl marx, seeing as that is not what this board is for, and this entire thread is a borderline rule violation, I will however discuss the life of Karl marx, as well as the historical significance of his writings.

is it true that Karl Marx himself was never actually a member of the working class? he was born to wealthy parents and lived off an inheritence his entire life, so i'm not sure how he was qualified to talk about the plight of the working class

Historical materialism is absolute trash that takes no account of subjective experience, cultural and intellectual development, national circumstances, military strategy, or anything else. It is among the worst historiographical perspectives ever and Marx was wrong on all fronts. Nothing he said would occur has occurred.

He also gets bonus points for being related to and funded by Rothschild bankers (and funded by other assorted industrialists as well). 0/10, would not theorize with.
>>

>>
>>55975
This is how I feel.

Descriptive Marx (talking about how capitalism works, history of struggles etc.) was always right.

Prescriptive Marx (talking about how future socialism would work, classless society etc.) was always wrong.

Basically, don't try to predict the future. He was a genius though.

Did Marx inadvertently save capitalism?

>Capitalism is horrible to the workers, if they're unemployed they starve, their wages are poor, their hours long and their conditions dangerous.
>Marxist groups spring up to fight this and get to communism.
>Those in power in most countries make small yields (Bismarck's welfare provisions, or similar changes in the UK.) while maintaining a largely capitalist economy. From there the welfare state slowly builds up into modern social democracies.
>Meanwhile Russia refuses to make sufficient changes (and couldn't really because it was so far behind) and goes red. Everyone calls it communist even though it's socialist (but trying to reach communism)
>Later, China also revolts.
>By the ~50s, but with the difference in quality of life growing all the time, it's plain to see that living standards in a social-democracy are higher than those of a communist society.

A lot of the parties that pushed for social democracy have Marxist roots as well, like the British Labour party. [Who still insist they're socialists, kek.]
>>
>>57336
>he was born to wealthy parents and lived off an inheritence his entire life, so i'm not sure how he was qualified to talk about the plight of the working class
The idea that one must be of a certain group to see that groups plight is ludicrous. (But very popular.), at the time Marx was alive it was reasonably common for the rich to start looking into the plight of the poor instead of assuming they were all poor through their own personal failure.

Even now, poor people who've made it into positions of power aren't the best to talk about poverty. They often ascribe some of their own luck to hard work and so make the very assumption that other poor people are lazy.

He did a lot to advance the historical field in itself. Reading about kings and military commanders misses the big picture, which in many ways we have Marx to thank for having today.

The way I used objective was to say it was a site not run by politically imitative, it's basically a archive of marxist economics.

>This is wrong. Only a minority of the writers within marxists.org are economists.
Explain further, I'd like to know what you mean.

>just open up your mind man
Dude, I'm a supporter of proudhon.
I'm not exactly saying this from subjectivity either.

>"The West" isn't the only anti-Communist force.

You've spent most of your time criticizing me for sending people to the same site I posted in a simple matter, spend more then a few hundred words making angry replies that I'm wrong.

Okay.

I'll admit, I was wrong that it was just marxist theory, but what I''m trying to say is that (Using the actual etymology of the word) is that the archive is filled with different subjects of varying leftist ideals with some exceptions (Because apparently, this is crucial in a description since saying it in ANY OTHER WAY is apparently wrong in the case of highly functional autism) which makes a good source for matieral, because it isn't shadowed by a political motive and only storage of literature.

Take a look at /v/ or /k/ and a lot of the more popular boards, and the majority of the low population boards.

For High Population.
They're over saturated with user moderation with odd exceptions in rules, which literal porn threads can stay up for a period long enough to have a nap, and unrelated topics and /b/ tier content is posted throughout, with a lot of new people and new fads coming in completely fading away the site's culture almost making it on pararell with tumblr and reddit, as examples.

For Low Population
Literal forum-like moderation, seems much more dedicated in purging, dissent is remove and a lot of the political statements are throughout socially progressive, mostly undereducated as well, large circle jerking and tripfagging isn't even shunned anymore.

Its become the complete antithesis of what this site originally stood for.
Legitimately, there is little to no difference as of now between forums and 4chan and I'll bet it'll get worse in the future.

I think we still haven't figured out a form of communism that will properly work, no. But of course 20th century communism was dominated by leaders and revolutionaries that were too present.

That's why his work has inspired only regimes that profit, oppress and exploit the woking class. In no way shape or form does his work fix anything.
Look at politics, and you'd know this to be true if you have lived in south america, that socialism and communism are simply empty promises that give them votes to rule another term.

Yes, this will be ironic, but let's stop making posts that just bemoan the influence of this or that board. If somebody's trying to shit up a thread, it's better to ignore them or refute them than to shit up the thread even more with whines.

Also, I'm no Marxist, but I think a philosophy and history board is pretty obviously where a thread about Karl Marx goes. He was a philosopher, and his ideas had a huge influence on the course of history. He's also, whether you like it or not, an integral part of the humanities in its current form.

Through history economic transitions have been based on social emancipation and increasing economic representation. The lower class will overtake the upper class.

Marx theorized that this system would mean the collective ownership of the means of production. This merely means the people who work get the benefits. It's not that difficult

Its true though. Take a business class, they'll make it clear - you make a very low profit margin on each product. The idea is to sell so much product you end up raking in millions.

(Also, the comic - both the original and the edited - ignore the difference in ownership, which usually has tons of wealth, and management, which is usually wealthy but not shareholder level wealthy)

Source: history hasn't proven him right.
No revolution was successful at implementing even the most basic form of socialism
Workers in the 21st century know about value added, but understand that it isn't exploitation: it is a compensation for the risk of investing and a motivation to produce.
Command economies have been proven to be more innefecient than those based on markets
People living in socialist societies didn't change their profit-minded culture, a necessary step for the achievement of true communism
There is probably a lot more.

There has to be a compensation, or else there would be no motivation to produce, since businesses have a risk of failing.

This anon is correct.

Marxism is a revenge fantasy whereby the communist imagines himself the victim of a plot created by wealthy people to keep him down, just as Nazism is a revenge fantasy whereby the Nazi imagines himself the victim of a plot created by Jews to keep him down. Both have the end results, with Nazis measuring your skull and Marxists measuring the proletarian content of your soul to decide if they're going to allow you to exist in their utopia or not.

Ultimately, Marx is a retard for being a utopian theorist, because utopias are, by their very definition, impossible, because humans will always be imperfect beings. But keep on believing human beings are like clay you can mold to your will, you lovable fascists, because it's right when you do it!

You really think money wins elections? Trump right now has spent the least of all Republican candidates, and he's in the lead.

You Marxists are all the same. You can never be disproved, because your theory says if it's disproved then it's someone else's fault. Your threshold for falsifying other theories is so goddamn low as to be laughable, but your threshold for falsifying Marxism is literally IMPOSSIBLE to reach. You know what we call things that can't be disproved in social science, such as psychoanalysis? A load of shit. You're all a bunch of retards, smug retards at that.

It's never a guarantee. Jeb has spent the most out of the Republicans and his campaign's shit.

you ought to read him. in all but a few very brief hypotheses on the distant future, his work is incredibly dry economic treatise. those hypotheses are not essential to his work because he eventually rejected his earlier belief in the inexorable arrival of communism. communism is merely a potential system and one which he believes would be optimal. he predicted the collapse of capitalism, yes, but what he could not see was that government intervention would aid in prolonging its lifespan: see the recent bailouts. this is in stark contrast to the utopian socialists that marx distanced himself from, who believed they could create a perfect system or believed in its inevitable arrival. it's fairly ironic to post an image of an american founding father when decrying marx's "utopianism", given that the majority of american founding fathers believed themselves to be acting in accordance with divine providence.

Project Cybersyn, anon.

>Project Cybersyn was a Chilean project from 1971–1973 during the presidency of Salvador Allende aimed at constructing a distributed decision support system to aid in the management of the national economy. The project consisted of four modules: an economic simulator, custom software to check factory performance, an operations room, and a national network of telex machines that were linked to one mainframe computer.
>The system was most useful in October 1972, when about 50,000[citation needed] striking truck drivers blocked the access streets that converged towards Santiago. According to Gustavo Silva (executive secretary of energy in CORFO), using the system's telex machines, the government was able to guarantee the transport of food into the city with only about 200 trucks driven by strike-breakers, recouping the shortages caused by 40,000 striking truck drivers.

The Allende government’s budget deficit was 15%, 25%, and 30% of GDP in the years 1971-73. That's an economic collapse in a unprecented scale. Greece at its worst in 2009 hit 15% of GDP. If the United States had budget deficits equal to 30% of GDP, that would amount to $5 trillion — more than three times the actual US budget deficit at its nominal peak in 2009.
