File Under: Serendipity

REAL ART (and politics and culture)

Fellow traveller Ron does a pretty damn good job elucidating my point below that Marx got more right than he did wrong...

What really turned me on, however, were the Marxist and feminist essays. It’s not that I’m particularly into Marx or feminism, although I am to some extent; it’s that the way these writers approached their subjects opened up an entirely new strain of thought to me—it is important to note that many feminist writers, especially those writing in the 1970s, were strongly influenced by Marxist critical principles. So really, it all comes down to Karl Marx.

There's some great stuff in this essay, and a link to a very nice summation of Marxist critical assumptions...

go read it...
