did marx predict a point at which the working class is irreversibily defeated? i know that irreversibly defeat is not the same concept as "decay", but what comes after captial's decay?
i assume that that's not the idea behind the concept of "socialism and barbarism": that irrersible defeat or communism are the only two ways that capitalism can now shift?
do you wonder if capital wasn't *decaying* until about the time of the financial crisis? if not, then what has changed, because it really seems that something has!
thanks for any replies :-)
edit i have edited this into being readable: sorry for any confusion!!
