Despite its obvious intention to challenge the corporate-dominated 
status quo, some Marxists fault Naomi Klein’s “This Changes Everything” 
for supposedly straddling two opposing and mutually exclusive systems: 
capitalism and socialism. For every criticism, there has been a defense 
of “This Changes Everything” from other Marxists, including those who 
have had long-standing affinities with the critics–thus demonstrating 
that deep divisions do not have to stand in the way of a unified 
movement. As such, the debate is a reminder that as long as our primary 
focus is on challenging capitalist rule, there is no reason why we 
cannot air out our differences in the public arena without the schisms 
that have harmed out movement in the past.
