Modes of change

How many angry ideologues still have not learned this simple lesson!

“Historic observation shows that there are many modes of change, other than dialectical opposition: Maturation, mimesis, mutual aid are all as effective as the struggle between opposing classes. In failing to take in the diverse modes of change, Marx compelled himself to overlook a good part of human history.”
Lewis Mumford, Interpretations and Forecasts, 201
