Alan Megill on Marx

This is an example of the kind of attack on marx that has befuddled the left not because it is counterpropaganda but because of the cogency of its thinking. In fact, megill goes too far and beyond a set of devastating critiques of marx’s thinking ends up himself in a set of devastating mistakes. He fails to see what is clearer now than ever that capitalism is entering crisis and failure mode. So we might need this critiques to revamp the subject of marxism.
This book sets the record straight on many issues and its dangerous for marxists to hold positions so challenged because one’s enemies have more accurate information than you do. A good example is the question of marx’s later actual views on markets: he assumes positions that even most marxists would no longer defend…
I hold no brief for this book, which one might well skip at this point, save to note that the core of marxism is dated now…and to remember that the enemies of marx usually understand some issues better than the diehard faithful.
