"Nobody Takes Marxism Seriously Anymore" - Hate Mail

Oh, really.  Check this out in the current issue of The Nation:

Marx’s Revenge

He may have lived a 19th-century life, but his ideas keep coming back with a vengeance.

For pity sake, don't you guys read? I mean AT ALL?

Update:  I'm way past the point where I want to waste time reading younger Marxists like Kunkel or Richard Seymour - who, like so many of the great Marxist scribblers in the English Speaking and other people never seem to have elected to live under it.   Well, really, it would be hard for them to do so as even the people who run countries under the name "Marxist" pretty much gave up on Marxism and don't elect to live under it, either.  Marxism was given and failed the test of time, the young Marxists of today are bird-brains, posturing romantics for a vicious past that they can't state the truth about.   They have all the credibility of academic Nazis c. 2017.  Once the crap like the cinema glorification of Dalton Trumbo and those jerks is over, they'll have the non-respectability of Nazis, as well.   The sooner the better.
