I respect your work on politics but this is mostly under-examined cultural prejudice. Your quoting from Marx is, in my view, miasmatic considering the millions of wage-earning self-help readers whose experience is regarded at a distant remove if not snobbishly in this article. We all engage in a bit of headline-baiting, but this is the equivalent of someone writing: “Why Socialism is (Mostly) Destructive B.S.” You’d never write something so shallow. Which is why I read you. On politics. https://medium.com/s/real-magic/in-defense-of-new-age-4e55f8dadcc2
