OK not to be a Marxist?


In the odd chance de Boer read my critiques of Marxism at redfortyeight.com and tried to agree with me let me clarify ‘why it is ok not to be a Marxist’: the point was to stress the need for a neo-marxism at a time when the issues of the proto-socialists of the Marx era are as relevant as ever but frozen now in corrupted terminology.
The problem is the drift of terminology into forms of semantic confusion and cognitive dissonance to the point where new terminology is required. As our previous post about the Chinese corruption of terms makes obvious, the whole legacy of Marxism is so confused by the Bolshevik era that we have to redefine what we mean.
