I went to sleep an hour ago, but I could not sleep becuase of all this thougts in my head.
They where toughts of something that has bothered me for a long time, but I havent be able to see
it clearly before now. The thing that have been bothering me is my own ideology. After being at
university for over 2years, arguing on this forum alot the last year and taking political philosophy
this semester it strikes me how many flawes there are in all political ideologys. And marxism are no
exception. It hits the nail on somethings, but it is not able to explain the entire society.
The catalyst for this was the "pete eyre" tread where I could not find any counterargument based on my ideology in the end.
Therefor I would not base my entire understanding on society and political issues on a ideology that comes short in the end. Therefor I am no longer a selfproclaimed marxist for now. I will use this next year to digg into all sorts of political theory and I will try to keep an open mind.
ps. This does not meen I have changed my opinion on many subjects. I am still against aggressiv warfare and occupation. I am still concerned that there are huge difference between poor and rich. I am still for a welfare state in a capitalist context. I am still sceptic to any talk about anti-immigration, nationalism aka everything that smells of fascism, nazism and racism and I am still for equality between the sexes.
I wish to thank PWI for this revelation, because throwing my arguments in here helped to reach it.
Respect to all of you guys from Florelius.
