@GwenfarsGarden@sunbeam.city @douginamug Frederick Lassalle broke with Marx and Engels over socialism. Marx held that socialism was a stepping stone that must have way to the communist workers utopia, while Lassalle said that socialism was a perfectly fine system on its own, and went back to Germany to preach socialism to von Bismarck. Unfortunately, he got himself killed before he could really sell the Iron Chancellor on the idea.

@WanderingBeekeeper @GwenfarsGarden @douginamug we gonna mention the fact that Marx called Lassale a "Jewish N-word"?

just a... fact...


I'm given to understand via Graeber that Bismarck did give in on some social policy at least.
