: Amen, bruthu. I just don't think this is Hegelian and it definitely isn't Marxist.

Erm, it is actually.

: Nope. Regardless of other various quotes Marx was, at heart, a economic determinist.

Who made the economy- the humans, its not the mechanical version that if interest rates fall a half percent, I go home and hit my partner, it is rather, taht the social relations must co-incide with the productive relations, and when they don't, we have social strife. What Marx wanted to see was an end to economic man, which is socialism, people freed from production to ehert their will and individuality.

: And each of us in the same manner defines what we conceive of as freedom.
