I have been writing last minute posts a lot lately. I want to say that the problem is lack of inspiration is behind the problem, but the truth of the matter is that I want to present a decent set of proposals to go along with the problems that I outline. It appears that the problems that I am seeing do not really lend themselves to a palatable solution.
So right now I am just writing a way to take a break in place. Sometimes a short bit of writing clears out the pipes. Solutions can come out of framing the problem properly and then thinking about it for a while. I think that if Marx would have done this and waited around to come up with a better solution set than his written plan, we might have had a better chance at coming up with a mature solution
The superlative framing of the problems proffered by capitalism is Marx and Engles brilliant contribution to human culture. The precise and cogent description of capitalisms failings and end points are the long-lasting draw of this political philosophy. It is just such a pity that their solutions are so damn lame.
