Discussion: Henry Flynt “Autopsy of the Left”

The classic promise of communism appeared in texts by Marx and Engels. Henry Flynt says that promise was as crackpot as flying to the moon by flapping your arms like a bird. The twentieth century saw the creation of a world system styling itself as Communist. Two centuries have passed, and by now the world Communist system has basically disavowed itself. What happened? We are heirs to two centuries of profound historical experience; a decisive appraisal of the outcome is overdue. Join Flynt, author of “Blueprint for a Higher Civilization,” in posing some questions and making some answers.
