Criticism of Marxism has come from various political ideologies and academic disciplines. This includes general criticism about a lack of internal consistency , criticism related to historical materialism , that it is a type of historical determinism , the necessity of suppression of individual rights , issues with the implementation of communism and economic issues such as the distortion or absence of price signals and reduced incentives. In addition, empirical and epistemological problems are frequently identified. Some democratic socialists and social democrats reject the idea that societies can achieve socialism only through class conflict and a proletarian revolution. Many anarchists reject the need for a transitory state phase.
As a commentator on the sinful acts of an American bureaucracy chasing an idea called "The Great Society" Thomas Sowell rarely misses his mark. Two revisions to the common or common-sense reading of Marx are meant to be revealed by the more sophisticated reading offered up by Sowell, and they may be generally stated as follows: Marx should be read as a not atypical albeit out-dated and wrong-headed economic scientist, and he should be understood, when all is said and done, to have been an American-style democrat. Probably the most instructive thing that can be said about it is that Marx left it unfinished. According to Sowell, Marx is a liberal in the original sense-a man for whom "religious freedom was.

It is a freedom from all that is external to man, with man understood as a social or "species being" without individuality.
Here Marx's philosophy is dissected from the angle of bourgeois capitalism which he, Marx, sought to overcome. His social, political and economic ideas are criticised. Although it is noted that Marx wanted to ameliorate human suffering, the result turned out to be Utopian, contrary to his own intentions. Contrary to Marx, it is individualism that makes the best sense and capitalism that holds out the best hope for coping with most of the problems he sought to solve. Capitalism, while by no means out to guarantee a perfect society, is the best setting for the realisation of the diverse but often equally noble human goals of its membership. Machan, T.

Sowell's book is the antidote to this problem. He writes in a fluid and easy-to-follow manner, leading the listener through the Marxian scheme of ideas.
Remember Graham's Hierarchy of Disagreement as a tool and aid for better discussion. Thomas Sowell's Marxism - Philosophy and Economics self. Marxists around here don't seem to give the book much respect, I assume because they don't like the author much, but other than mattsah, I'm not aware of anyone else who has actually read it. Do any of the Marxists here have any specific complaints about the book?
