Marx: Capitalism and Alienation — 1 Comment

  1. You just gave me an education. I didn’t know any of that about Karl Marx. Actually, I didn’t know anything about him except he was a “bad guy.” I just pictured this mean-looking guy up in the sky over Russia, ha-ha. You explained all of that very well. I feel inspired now to make sure our helper feels like his work his meaningful and that he owns it just like we do. But I also feel scared. People are too brainwashed to be open-minded about getting rid of capitalism. People as a collective whole are mentally ill. And even if they were open to it, that’s a major upheaval. How would it be done? I’m feeling hopeless about it all and think about trying to discourage my daughters from having children (I doubt that would work!) because I fear for our future. I think the whole thing is going to implode in on itself. I think I have a good chance of being dead before this happens, but what about my grandchildren? I am reading “A New Earth” by Eckhart Tolle right now. I am understanding more about the ego and how we are all connected and only a quarter of the way through, I hope that he says something that gives me some hope about the mess of this world.
