Karl Marx foresaw everything about capitalism, says this author, even if his theories didn't work in practice.:D

I had a physics professor who correctly said if a theory doesn't work in practice, it isn't a very good theory.

From a 2016 opinion piece by Louis Menand of the New Yorker, which I think is an excellent article....and the warning of what happens when you choose a group of intellectuals like the Young Hegelians and a career in Philosophy over Law.

Good question, Tink. Think you answered it yourself quite well.

It will take a new Euclid to square the circle.  :)
