I think Marx maybe failed to consider individuals EGO which comes into play where self interest leads to corruption and self interest which makes communal structures for fairness fall apart. Eg Russia,s oligarchs is all about individual Ego destroying interest of communal systems working
It is a good time to reevaluate our economic structures in history.Alienation , massive population growth, resources, climate change and major inequality are all big issues which need to be addressed for human survival
I like how she pronounces the “h” in what and who.😂 A great clear voice though.
This is one intellectually gifted teacher!
Can you make a playlist with this series please?
Philosophy is, and always was, mental masturbation. The rational is real and the real is rational. Is green really green?
Original and spell bound professor actually she is major in American pragmatism and with great erudition and scholarship
lacking elbow grease, Marx and Engels are the original social parasites: tuneyadstvo. Lenin invented the CHEKA and the red terror and Stalin elevated it to a work of Marxist-Leninist art..... "ARS GRATIA ARTIS"..... Lenin was a cannibal as all marxists are, he succinctly picked the best cannibal after himself to carry on the cannibalization of USSR, uncle Joe, our gallant ally. in the name of the workers' paradise, all other marxists cannibalized their countries, clearly, into Nazi slave camps.....
Modern Communists have nothing to do with Marx.
My God, Thelma L’aviné is a mesmerizing unique educator,
A fem Sugrue!
She did pretty good up until the end when she claimed capitalism was able to reform itself which as we've all seen it has only gotten worse since this was filmed lol communism is our only way forward now.
Karl Marx’s ideas are antithetical to a free society.
The false values contained in the power of money have destroyed any real truth of equality contained in democracy as we know it today. True success in not in ones worth measured by ones wealth but in the development in a system where all is benefited equally where all that one needs is available to all without question and any negativeness is only the result of the natural developments in age as well as in any diseases and accidents should be the only reason where ones life is ended.

iKqWAWKnVjs&t=4m39s 4:39 - French Revolution didn’t bring about freedom, but jealousy & blind lust for power that the others had and they didn’t.
It was America’s Revolution, that kept God center, that Freedoms & Rights come from the Christian understanding, a freewill which comes w/ responsibility & accountability..
Spot on about Marx/ Hegelians that reasoned their way into believing they are each gods
