1/If you want to know the essential difference bt capitalism & Marxism, capitalism is equality of opportunity. Marxism is equality of outcome, & views any economic hierarchy as ~automatic exploitation. Marxism is built on pretty significant economic & psychological fallacies.
2/Marx attempted to describe social evolution (evolution of social organization), but w vast misunderstandings of actual human psychology. He slightly predated Freud. For reference, Freud brought self-reflection to mass attention but was wrong on almost all the details.
3/Using Marx as a framework for societal evolution is like using Freud for psychology, as though oral fixations were the primary way to understand yourself. It's just primitive. It was an early, & largely problematic, attempt to understand what was corrected & developed later.
4/As in, Marx was right that society in its organization develops thru history. He was wrong in how it does, & thus advocated overthrows based on severe misconclusions. Freud was right that psychology requires self-interpretation, but most of his interpretation was proven wrong.

1/You should follow others who unthinkingly draw conclusions from numbers. You'd love the left, where they have incredible statistical takes, like that male-female wage differences automatically mean OPPRESSION (but nothing to do w maternity, choice of job, hours worked, etc).
2/The left is mired in trivializing statistics (& science!) into anything that suits its ideals, most often on race & culture. They live in a fantasy world in which all differences by default mean OPPRESSION is at work, so much so as to deny realities & cherry-pick stats. Idiocy.
3/An ex w race is bank loans. Statistics show whites get more loans approved than blacks. Many screamed white RACISM. But Asians got more loans approved than whites. As in, it wasn't racism but CREDIT SCORES. Also, the banks who denied the most black loans were BLACK-OWNED BANKS.
