Ideas in history?

December 31st, 2017 · No Comments

https://71republic.com/2017/12/24/critiquing-marxism-the-role-of-ideas-in-history/ This is a stale critique of stale marxism but the essential point has been made many times, and isn’t anything new at this (evidently) libertarian website.

https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/dec/30/psychopolitics-neolberalism-new-technologies-byung-chul-han-review At least in Nineteen Eighty-Four, nobody felt free. In 2017, for Han, everybody feels free, which is the problem. “Of our own free will, we put any and all conceivable information about ourselves on the internet, without having the slightest idea who knows what, when or in what occasion.

Developing (post-)Marxist theory today

December 30th, 2017 · No Comments

https://rdln.wordpress.com/2015/12/22/developing-marxist-theory-today/ This defense of marxism shows the difficulty suffered by Marx fans.
