Marx is just Ok!

Published 01/04/2008

Realist's obvious concern with 'Marxists' intrigues me (Write Back, March 29).

With Marx long dead, it is only possible to ascertain his political and economic philosophy from his writings.

I have an interest in these latter items and would be most appreciative to learn where in Marx's body of work your contributor finds justification for associating Marx's name with nationalist movements or acts of political violence here or elsewhere throughout the world.
