An anti-Marxist commenter notes:
If you want to pat yourself on the back for your moral superiority, than Marxism is the way to go.
I don’t agree. The Marxists are really the ultimate humanists. They are correct -capitalism is evil, irrational and self-destructing.
Think about it. Think about the poorest of the poor on this Earth in any country. Who loves them, cares about them, and promotes their interests better than anyone else? The Marxists! Isn’t that correct? Which project helps the poor the most? Marxism.
Social democracy? I don’t think so. Besides, do you think social democrats really love the poor, especially the poorest of the poor? This latest crop of social democrats? I’m not so sure about that. Social democracy appears to be a middle class movement that above all else promotes and has the most affection for the middle classes?
Now, it is an open question about who serves the interests of working people better. The social democrats? Or the Marxists? This is hard to say. The Marxists really do love the workers. They are the party of the working class, and they love and support the workers more than any other group of people.
However, social democrats are also pro-worker (except this latest batch). So this is sort of a toss up. Further, the most pro-worker group on Earth, the Marxists, have created a system that causes a lot of problems for the working people. This is not because the Marxists are out to screw them, but because the Marxist model simply does not work that well.
The capitalists do not promote the interests of the poor, especially the poorest of the poor, or the workers. Under capitalism, workers are seen as an enemy class to be attacked at all costs. Nevertheless, due to high wealth creation, many workers have done fairly well economically under capitalism, a system that hates them and attacks them constantly. However, this model is not stable, and at the moment it is failing not only the workers, but the capitalist model in the West is actually failing period, exactly how Marx predicted it would fail.
