Faith in Marxism

August 17, 2009

I don’t believe in the absolute truth of Marxism in the way that some people believe in religious dogmas. I only believe it is near enough to the truth to make it worth while betting my life on it as against any rival theories

J.B.S. Haldane, Science in Everyday Life, 1941, p.198

Something you’ll ‘bet your life on’ is religious faith even it is ‘non-religious’ and claims, as Marxism did, to be ‘scientific’.
