“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Blasted Thumbs

Yet again I accidentally deleted a response, this time from John:

Thanks, Tim. I'd say it's pretty obvious (to me at least) Marxism wouldn't be hurt by a little adjusting ...

And I'm guessing that if Marx were alive today and writing he wouldn't be some Pierre Menard, rewriting Capital ... he'd be writing a pretty different book.
