Mike and Tones discuss Marx’s Communist Manifesto. Are his views “good on paper, bad in practice,” a blueprint for tyranny, or a noble system? Were the events in Cambodia the bastardization of Marxist ideals or the logical path set out by his Manifesto? What role does philosophy have in judging political theory?
Please note that Mike and Tones both give rather strong judgements on Marx and his political theory, which may drift a bit from our Prime Directive/Mission Statement. As always, we do invite you to read the discussed work for yourself, think critically, and to make your own judgements. As always, we also invite you to add to the discussion via email or the “comments” portion of this page.
