Pure Evil - How Far Are they Willing To Go?

This sociology went beyond the critical theory of society concived by Marx in order to reflect reality more adequately. One point is very important. For Marx had the ideal of a society of free human beings. He believed that this capitalist society would necessarily have to be overcome by the solidarity spelled by the increasing immiseration of the working class. This idea is wrong. This society in which we live does not immiserate the workers but helps them to build a better life. And apart from that. Marx did not see that freedom and justice are dialectical concepts. The more freedom, the less justice and the more justice, the less freedom. The critical theory which I concieved later is based on the idea that one cannot determine, what is good, what a good, a free society would look like from within the society which we live in. We lack the means. But in our work we can bring up the negative aspects of this society, which we want to change.”

Emphasis mine. By “this sociology” he is referring to Critical Theory.

Want to see another example? Look at how ANTIFA defines “fascism”. It’s not Mussolinin’s definition.

Neo-Marxists are trying to form a new proletariat based on identity.

“Immiserate” means to make miserable.

I can’t think of much worse evil than to purposefully convince a happy child that they are really miserable.

i can surely agree with this

i think the left has run out of things to be “liberal” about so they are resurrecting the things they succeeded in progressing beyond. like racism

He being Marx. Do you see it?

i think so. the left needs the dissension, and division to be relevant.

they have “white guilt”

the modern left will always be odds with society. when society progresses (actual progress, not just rainbow flags), they lurch harder left

this results in insanities like questioning gender, over-sensitivity and over-reaction to anything they perceive as “racist”

the justification of outright violence against society - antifa thugs

The admission that capitalism “helps them to build a better life.”

In other words, the “oppression” is phony.

How could it be otherwise? The story must continue.

the oppression is phony. life is too good in a successful capitalist society, so they (re)invent phony ills. like “systemic racism”

this doesn’t exist now. that they have to re-invent it takes some pretty massive distortion of reality, and convincing others that it’s there.

that much departure from reality is pathological. you could say “evil”

There needs to be a little care taken there. There are some “socialist” left and right limits and backstops that need to be in place.

Monopolies for example.

laissez-faire anything probably isn’t going to work, there has to be balance.

Unfettered socialism certainly isn’t the answer.

Immiseration. “That kid you think is your friend? He wants to put chains on you because you’re black and he’s white.”

Evil.

no capitalism is not perfect. no system is so some management is needed. people do get greedy. any system needs guide rails.

“socialism” is not the right system to keep capitalism in check though. esp since it suffers from the same ills, and is exploited by the “ruling” class.

What is?

no “system” is needed. just vigilance.

yes, regulation. to some degree.

it’d be nice if the justice system weren’t tiered like it is. but i dont want to complicate the topic. Most hard workers running an honest business get crucified if they aren’t in perfect compliance while gross corruption goes on in other circles.

remember “sorbanes-oxley?”. the quintessential congressional knee jerk reaction to high level corruption. all it did was punish all the smaller corps who follow the rules

The latter is the former. So I’m going to have to disagree. Look at tech, banking and the media right now.

I agree with the rest of your post.

Which of course hadn’t been created yet. Lol.

ok. well i think things can be regulated without it being socialism.

but too much regulation tends toward it so you have a point

How?

You don’t know what you are prattling about. Go troll somewhere else.

On second thought, stop trolling.
