    Was Karl Marx the most evil man ever?

    If not, he'll take some beating imo.

    I'm kind of curious though, how many people here have actually read any Marx?

    Probably not the most evil himself, but can't think of many indirectly responsible for more deaths

    I've read a bit. Communist Manifesto, bit of Capital and some of his other essays. I think he's overrated, although probably not by sledger.

    No, not really, saved millions too, as well as the despots that used his views for evil, social care, health, housing has elevated millions, oddly some of the people that now call him evil.

    Always going to be the way, but I'm someone old enough to remember when people could separate the totalitarianism of communism with socialism, social care. Like the totalitatarinism of slave-trades, forced colonionisation, sweatshops, countless millions of deaths through hideous working conditions, can seem to be easily seperated from capitalism.

    It's a simplistic world the Rand loving people can talk in, which exists because of socialistic and capitalistic ideas, in my honest opinion. Both needed.

    Obviously not.

    Not that I am in the least be qualified to judge his ideas especially economics. His theory of history is obviously rubbish though, well the very fact he has a theory of history makes that the case.

    I was in Liverpool Waterstones at Xmas and perusing the Politics section. Not sure why I bothered, Liverpool is so far left it makes this forum appear centrist by comparison. Anyhow, the highlight was a paperback entitled 'Why Marx Was Right'

    Spoiler alert: he wasn't (other than predicting Uber)
