Karl Marx's theory has been proven to be right and it is accepted by many. He also predicted how the industrial revolution will result in a society of inequality and the how the greed of the capitalist will destroy the society. He also correctly predicted how the rise of machines will replace man labour and create lesser employments.

there is no doubt that he is a genius, but the west, notably america thinks his theory is a plague and poison and often demonize it. why?

If there is no karl marx, where do you think your NHS and Obamacare comes from?

Let me remind you which party is ruling now in france.

I doubt many have a problem with socialism as a concept in the West. It seems to mainly be USA that hates it with a passion, likely due their government demonising the system along with the USSR over the last couple of centuries.

Let me remind you how many french people (Especially wealthy Parisians) are moving to London because of the new French Government, great for our capitalist economy!

Why are they moving away if the idea is so damn good?

Because the government put the taxes so high, did Marx want high taxes?

i dare not answer this question with the risk of being a fool as marx's theory is too complicated for me to answer with a single word

marx wants the value of an economic service or product to be determined by the costs of its production and not manipulated by market makers.

Does that not already happen in a competitive market though?

There's also the idea of individuality in the west. People strive to be the lone wolf who rises above others, there's a certain greed involved that helps feed capitalism; the desire to constantly want better, to "one up" our neighbours. Not to mention the greedy and wealthy corporate CEO's clinging on to their massive wealth for dear life.

humans are social beings. without social interaction we cannot grow and develop and certainly not survive.

Cost-free services, like a health service arent really a product of Marxism, more a product of morality.

Could you list all Marxist theories at works in the West?

I dont really know it well enough i am afraid and i dont want to simply point out things only to be refuted and look like a fool.

I just went to a seminar about marxism and am deeply attracted to it so i open a thread about.

You're completely right, however I meant to highlight the desire to stand out from the crowd many people have.

Humans have survived for thousands of years. We have also developed for thousands of years.

Communism is just a little blip that occurred in the 20th century and will be consigned to the history books completely in the future.

If you're a communist, be a communist, give all your wealth away, and see where it leaves you.
