Then you should use the phrase and not the English as it can cause confusion as we're not mind-readers but readers.Bill Wiltrack wrote:.

I was reminiscing of 'Castio Dispersionio.'
No, get it straight, some of us have read large chunks of Das Kapital but I doubt anyone has read it all as its vast, others are starting to read some of it and many have read The Communist Manifesto. You have read none. I've never read the wiki entry as whilst useful by and large wiki is not that a reliable a source compared to actually reading what ever is being discussed and making ones mind up for themselves.So, lemmie get this straight; No one here has read Marx's "Das Kapital."
ALL of us here has read the wiki:Marx's "Das Kapital"
Get off your little ego pole. Its not about being "better" its about being on a philosophy forum and making statements about things one hasn't read.And that makes you better than me how?
Its a shallow educational tool.I hope you get something out of wiki on this.
And yet for a long time Liberal Democracy opposed unionism. But I agree with your sentiments as both unions and capital need to be constrained in a civil society.For me, Organized Labor and the evidence of democracy are my yardsticks.
I did, its called Historical Materialism and an analysis of Industrial Capitalism at the time, even tho his economics appears in error. Maybe if you tried reading it you'd understand your cultural box a little better.Seriously, hope you do well. Try reading Marx again - perhaps you will find something positive about it.
The usual refrain of the Yank. What? One of the best health care and education systems for its poor out of all the Latin countries. Despite being under embargo for fifty years by Yanks with the same opinions as you, i.e. holding opinions about things they've not read.Try going to Cuba. Immerse yourself in Marx. And good luck to you.[/size]
Since you know nothing about Marx I'll tell you that he claimed he wasn't one. Given his idea of Historical Materialism the failed experiments were obvious and the communism you talk about is that of Lenin's with Stalins obscenities. Mao's still appears to be going strong but if Marx was right then not for long. Still, I guess you've not read either of them as well but will have an opinion nevertheless.
How would you know?
I'm sooooooo fucking tired of people quoting & misquoting Marx.
Its nothing like the Bible but then you'd not know and I doubt you've read this either. Although i am surprised here as you claim your position as a religion so you could learn from both of them in this respect.It's become like the Bible - The lord uses the good ones & the bad ones use the lord.
Only to those who don't read. He may have been in error but meaningless if hardly the word as evidenced by the millions who have been influenced by his words.
Marx is meaningless.
Says the numbnuts who quotes wiki all day long. You are on a PHILOSOPHY forum bill, the very least we could expect is for a person to have read about the thing they are commenting upon. Your 'exercise' of philosophy is just an exercise in massaging Bill Wiltracks ego and needs and has little relationship to the practice of philosophising.Why any member would attempt to use ANY written word as a symbol of status over ANY other member here defies the exercise of philosophy and reflectively, is quite shallow.
But we read and as such are more likely to have to change our lofty views due to encountering the actual thoughts of others. Try it some time.Having said that I hope you cling to the view from your imposed tower. Don't change...[/size]
