    Default how stupid is this guy?!

    not a rhetorical question, I genuinely don't know if what he's saying is valid or not. it seems wrong, and he seems stupid. then again he does know quite a bit about Marxist economic philosophy

    tell me if this link doesn't work:

    it's in reference to the Duke of Cambridge and Kate Middleton's wedding...

    Is what he's saying wrong though? Has he just misinterpreted every sociological oeuvre he's supposedly read? I really don't get it... it's so strange

    Well for one how does he think a Muslim extremist group would be the path to a new...

    It's not wrong, it's from another dimension.

    Lord no, the guy is an idiot. First off he studied sociology, which means ALL his view points are TERRIBLY biased in his field of study. People who study sociology are all the same horrible human beings. My view has been stated before:

What a loser.

    That's an excellent point, why didn't I think of that at the time...

    The problem is that he 'understands' sociology and he therefore has ridiculous solutions to political 'problems' that are based on his own pathetic frustration and aren't political. And he somehow has this friend who thinks he's an absolute genius.

    When you argue with people like that you really shouldn't get too long winded in the argument. Just fine one fallacy in their argument and keep repeating it. If a person doesn't recognize that a government under muslim extremists is just as oppressive as an absolute monarchy, let alone a constitutional monarchy, then they REALLY don't know what they are talking about. He's just a stupid social outcast, who studied sociology mind you, that read a few pieces of Marx and thinks he's some kind of expert. God, people like him should OD already and stop wasting the world's time.

    and i dont mean it was 'hard to understand' because of the old style intellectual diction, just that the writing was bad.

    Yeah, Das Kapital was really boring, and the writing is bland and it doesn't flow at all well, but it basically summarises all of Marx's arguments so I guess it's worth having read

    So everyone is Karl Marx is purgatory?

    "The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed."

    most of the stuff that Marx said was fine apart from that socialism will naturally replace capitalism

    well capitalism was an upgrade of feudalism, whereas socialism is a complete replacement of all the tenants of both capitalism and feudalism. how is this transition natural?

    maybe if everywhere in the world suddenly has all of their financial institutions and governments overthrown and a communist economy is installed then maybe, but otherwise the capitalist consensus is going to have a comparative advantage in world trade surely?

    marx was mainly 'wrong' due to the rise of the bismarckian welfare state. without that you wouldnt have had the social democrats dedicated to working within the system and perhaps germany's revolution would have been much more successful.

    no, I'm expanding on a previous point whilst basically agreeing you and waiting for God to come and tell me why I'm wrong

    You can draw parallels between fuedalism -> capitalism, and capitalism -> socialism. But socialism -> communism is quite a jump.
