Arundhati Roy on Kerala Marxism:
--Arundhati Roy, from 'The God of Small Things', 1997
But the feeling I get from this quote is 'oh, see marxism will amount to the same thing as christianity'.
Religion places the reasoning for broad social patterns out of the hands of people. Marxism is a theory that allows for people to be empowered and make social change for an equal and just society. It seems a lot more useful than religious approaches to behaviour change.
