" I certainly do not give a toss about outdated Marxist claptrap like that"

Nothing outdated about Richard's views - they are coming back in vogue as people realise that unregulated capitalism is failing as a economic and social system.


Regarding unregulated capitalism, I would most certainly agree with you on that one.
Capitalism certainly needs to be constrained to prevent abuses.

However, just as there are many forms of Socialism, there are also many forms of capitalism. I doubt very much if a Victorian capitalist mill owner, on the lines of Salt perhaps or the Quaker industrialists, would agree with the current business ideals.

However, I fail to see how the claptap ideas of a German Jewish Refugee will improve matters.
