don’t corrupt ecological socialism with marx’s errors and monopoly of bad theory…has noone heard of the Romantic movement?…//What Karl Marx has to say about today’s environmental problems

This quote shows directly that Marx’s thinking had a near-ecological aspect. But in the end marxism has no real ecological perspective. And conclusion is not to try and integrate ecology into marxism. The result will backfire because ecologial thinking integrated with the fallacies of marx’s theories will be a hopeless mess.
The left needs to leave hopeless case marxists behind, take a few good quotes from his works and start over from scratch….

Has noone heard of the Romantic movement? An immense resource in counterpoint to/with the Enlightenment is a part of modernity. We don’t need the dead hand of marxists to monopolize ecological thinking…

…all progress in capitalistic agriculture is a progress in the art, not only of robbing the labourer, but of robbing the soil; all progress in increasing the fertility of the soil for a given time, is a progress towards ruining the lasting sources of that fertility.– Karl Marx, Capital vol 1
