Karl Marx was wrong about more stuff than he got right, I never liked him he looked smelly and dirty and he was a lazy malcontent.Do you know who I did like his successor Eduard Bernstein who saw a peaceful evolutionary democratic path through gradual reform . But Socialism is inevitable for reasons they ignored , we simply cant survive unless we heavily regulate our conduct, greed and inequality are killing the planet. And if we have to slow economic growth to the pace of a snail , so what? all the better, rapid growth is reckless
