Hope for the Marxist Scholars: Defending Marxism against the Contention That It is Dead
Most of the icons of twentieth century like Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, Che Guevara and Fidel Catsro have been seen as possessors of Marx’s legacy i.e. his heirs. Within one hundred years of his death half the world’s population was ruled by governments that considered Marxism to be their guiding faith. After the end of the cold war and the disintegration of the Soviet Union in 1991, many declared that we had reached what Francis Fukuyama smugly called the “End of History”. This paper seeks to explore the scope of Marxism in the present times and whether the theory is still alive despite dim hopes and all criticism against it.
