    ‘THE ONLY THING WORSE THAN PREDICTING THE FUTURE IS BEING TRAPPED BY THE PAST’

    I love the title! It reflects exactly how I feel about the Western left.

    Have you read this – https://www.marxists.org/subject/left-wing/gik/1930/index.htm

    Their idea of communism is very similar to yours.

    Marx, taking the concept over from Hegel, writes of the immanent laws of capitalism; the immanent critique; the immanent measure; the immanent relation, NOT imminent. Immanent refers to the inherent, intrinsic qualities of the relations under examination. Imminent, impending, events that can be external to the subject under investigation.
