I'm having a very difficult time reading even Marx's "easier" works. I find the language he uses is far too dense and it seems to fly right over my head. Is there anything I can do to fix this? Am I just retarded?
https://www.marxists.org/reference/archive/stalin/works/1938/09.htm Try reading this the reading level was targeted at people who learnt to read in adulthood so it's pretty simple and meant to be a step along the way to reading more complex works Tell us how you go
>>2106 Read three sources of marxism by lenin its rather short and build up from that. I find Lenin very pleasant to read. But you can also try Engels Stalin or Mao
>>2107 >>2108 Thanks for the quick responses, anons, I'll keep you updated if I have any questions so long as you are willing to supply me answers.
>>2110 Of course
Read this fam, it was written for illiterate proles and was approved by Marx himself: https://www.marxists.org/archive/cafiero/1879/summary-of-capital.htm
>>2115 This is so much easier to read and understand than Capital, thanks a lot anon.
>>2116 I recommend Critique of the Gotha Program as a kinda easy read. It's a point by point take down so is more friendly for our twitter/10-minute-youtube-video brains. You're not retarded if you've got this far friend
>>2120 Where's the text it is taking down point-by-point? There's not much sense in reading something like this without being familiar with the thing it attacks.

>>2125 It's the first few pages of the PDF in the "Letter to Bracke". The Gotha Programme is that short Another source https://history.hanover.edu/courses/excerpts/111gotha.html
