Marxism as an Instrument of Bourgeois Ideology: A Reply to Ellerman

Has Marxism contributed to the perpetuation of capitalism?

Saviors of the Bourgeoisie?

My latest paper is a response to David Ellerman’s 2010 “Marxism as a Capitalist Tool,” The Journal of Socio-Economics, Vol. 39, pp. 696-700. I invite those interested in reading it to download the paper either here or on my academia.edu profile.

ABSTRACT:
Has Marxism inadvertently contributed to the perpetuation of the capitalist mode of production? David Ellerman answers in the affirmative. In this paper I endeavor to demonstrate that Ellerman’s position stems from a fundamental misunderstanding of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels’s critique of capital.
