"Marxism, after all, is POLITICAL ECONOMY. Most post-Marxism, Western
Marxism, whatever you want to call it, is rooted in PHILOSOPHY."

Marx's political economy *was* rooted in his PHILOSOPHY. This is _very
clear_ from Marx's life and writings. It is inconceivable for Marx's
works on political economy to have been written without the *PRIOR*
development is his own philosophy and his prior critique of the philosophers.

Marxism is *NOT* political economy. Marxism is a world outlook. Political
economy without that world outlook would not _in any sense of the term_
be Marxist.
