British Culture>Whatever pleb culture you have
Any of you like vegetables like corn and beans on non-savory sweet foods like ice cream.
I think the best description I’ve heard of Marx, was that he was wrong about communism, but right about capitalism.As far my controversial opinions the only things that stick out to me that aren't just standered liberal talking points like M4A or a 15$ minimum. Are the following.
>Don't infringe upon my gun rights.
>Nationalize the Oil Companies.
>Abolish the Stock Market.
It's honestly pretty difficult to find someone to the left of me who isn't a Marxist, and while I do think Marx made some very valid and definitely at the time eye opening criticisms of capitalism in a very well written book that I think more people should read, he doesn't present a path forward that satisfies me.
Also while it may not seem like it, my philosophy has a lot of post modern roots that preclude me from beliving in any sort of predestined historical narrative. Even if at times I may come across as more philosophically conservative.
That’s a method, rather than the end product. You can actually have dielectical materialism be completely valid, but have Marx be incorrect in the conclusions he reached using it if you assume that he plugged incorrect information into the equation due to unforseen externalities.Dialectical materialism is the best theory for describing the world, fite me in real life
That's actually super contentious since it only vaguely approaches necessary in really big cities where sane wages for most of the developed world are priced out. Realistically, the majority of the US population would work perfectly fine, at current living costs, on $12 an hour. Of course, a flat minimum wage is firmly nonsensical in the long run, pushing inflation because it's constantly set by the needs of the big cities, which tend to have inflated living costs.or a 15$ minimum
And the reason it gets in place is because the elites shit the bed, big time. UK/Europe with Austerity Doctrines, Brazil with corruption, USA with rampant inequality and unresolved structural flaws. Populism is a symptom of much more entrenched problems.Populism is bad because its normaly not grounded in evidence or fact based policies.
