We were critical of historical materialism, here and in many other posts. But keep in mind that the analysis of history via capitalism is equally flawed: societies will not evolve to a higher level via capitalism. The issue is complicated by the question of technological evolution, but basically the eonic effect shows that the fundamental macro sequence is something quite different from technological innovation.
