“Educate yourself !” has been yelled a lot lately in the many demonstrations of the peace movement, black lives matter movement, climate change movement, etc, etc. So I started doing what I had planned for much longer … I started to read Marx’s “das Kapital” and now I’m busy with Piketty’s “Capital and Ideology”.
