MORE MARX!!

Here it is, Lecture 2 in my series on the thought of Karl Marx.  Be the first among your friends to watch it.  Guaranteed to give you pangs of nostalgia for the good old days.

I laughed, I cried, it was better than Cats.

Thank you very much.

Watching your two videos on Marx has crystallized a decision to undertake a serious study of Marxism for the next few years. I generally read in a fairly planned and organized way and among the contenders for my next project was Proust's In Search of Lost Time, but Marxism
has a social value, puts me in fruitful contact with others that Proust definitively does not and it's a wise idea, I believe, to do something socially useful in my old age.

I hope to "feel at home" (to use Marx's eloquent phrase) with Marxism. That will take some time.

Thanks- I listened to it late last night but fell asleep half way through it. Great night's sleep but I woke up feeling somehow alienated. I will try it again tonight and let you know if the effect persists.

Thank you, sir. I really have enjoyed the first two lectures. I am trying to grasp the Frankfurt school also and I think it could be informative to hear your take on it. Alt-right and other liberal critics like Jordan B Peterson take aim at Cultural Marxism, identity politics and are not going to Marx himself. What are the difference between Cultural Marxism and Marx? Is there a fruitful way for the left by going back to Marx and going around the Frankfurt school?
