Why Marxism (and much of leftism) is retrograde
Marx was the quintessential modernist.
Most leftists still keep thinking in terms of “historical progression” from capitalism to socialism.
. . . keep thinking in terms of the capitalist system being The Problem; a “more advanced” system being The Solution.
Clueless in regard to the critique of hypermodernity.
The critique of hypermodernity goes deeper than the critique of capitalism.
The solution is more alternative than what the left has had in mind.
Re-considerations begun during the Sixties resulted in the start of a transition of thought toward the “greening” idea and its expression in Green politics during the Seventies. The transition is ongoing. What it’s all about is so alternative that the left keeps backsliding toward its old comfort zone.
