MBTI is a bad example. But why not question them in light of new findings? Isn't that what defines historical periods of 'enlightenment' for example?Its not something which I could really associate with Marx, he didnt speculate about those things, in part because the language or discourse was quite different, it just reads a little like attacking Socrates, Plato and Aristotale for their ignorance of MBTI.
That was why I said it was ambiguous. Unfortunately, due to the nature of an ideological movement, primary sources are generally considered in preference to those who attempt to clarify such issues. Marxists still show a general resistance to new ideas today.I dont really follow this, Bolshevism was quite a long, long time after Marx, there's lots of literature which attacked Bolshevism from the get go as being abberant from Marx's theories.
Sorry, I realise there are different forms of 'capitalism' for different times...I'd need further clarification of what you mean by that but Marx did think that capitalism was revolutionary, most of the communist manifesto is given over to attacks on other socialists who Marx felt didnt fully appreciate what capitalism was achieving and were too nostalgic for earlier times and traditions.
