    Why is Marxism so Attractive?

    Jordan Peterson is really talking about neo-Marxism.

    No, he is very much against neo-Marxist identity politics.

    What, are you defending them, or Marx?

    None. I don't defend any of them. I am valorating how biased he is. And that most of what he said comes from the typical capitalist propaganda.

    Already said he despises neo-Marxism. Actually, he's liberal, Canadian, and he says nothing about capitalism. I can only conclude you didn't listen to a word of the video. You simply saw Marxism in the title and went on a tirade.

    Liberals are capitalists.

    I listened him. He repeated the usual thing about Ukraine,... And similar capitalist propaganda.

    Is it propaganda that Communist Russia murdered millions?

    I must've missed Ukraine, what exactly did he say?

    What propaganda?

    Why are you defending something you're against?

    Truth be told, @kilgram, you're doing the same thing you did in the thread on Atheism Irrationality.

    You some have the mistaken notion that in attacking other positions you are somehow defending yours. The topic there was atheism, you attacked theism, but failed to defend atheism. Same here, you attack capitalism (in the vaguest of terms) and leave (neo-)Marxism undefended.
