Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Marx was wrong about the solution, because he was an idealist and utopian and not a social realist. He also didn't understand how easy it is for leaders to subvert a Grand Narrative for personal ends.

But he was luminously right in his description of the problem. From a distance of a century and a half, that's not a bad achievement.
