A World Without Jews - Karl_Ma
rx -1959-95pgs-REL-PHI-POL.sml.pdf

Karl Marx was not only born a Jew, he came from a rabbinical family. His father Heschel Marx accepted Christianity in 1816 in order to practice law in Prussian territory. Like many converts, Marx found it necessary all his life to justify the mass conversion of his family by attacks against his blood brothers. Anti-Semitic expressions of his are to be found mainly in the present essay, in his Class Struggles in France, In the Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte, and in his Letters to Engels, censored by Bebel and Bernstein. Some of the editors of his writings attempted to modify the vindictiveness of Marx's aggression. Others, like Mehring, even intensified them.

This series of lessons has been given in substance in half a dozen cities in the United States and Canada, and in parts elsewhere. The talks were all extemporaneous, but those delivered to a private class in Washington were taken in shorthand and many of the chapters put into shape from these notes . The corrections and writing of other chapters were done in Florida, where there were no books available, so that citations to references had subsequently to be made in footnotes. Philosophy is rather difficult for the average reader, for which reason the simple and conversational style of the talks has been retained so far as possible. Metaphysics is a closed book to most, and I have long felt that the subject should be stated more plainly and made accessible to more people. This work may seem to lack finish and polish for that reason, yet it is hoped that it may at least contain suggestions not entirely devoid of value or interest to trained philosophers as well as to other seekers after truth .

This book seeks, as a major aim, to bridge the interval between the founding of the religions and their present state. It is hoped, incidentally, that the frequent quotations from the original source materials—or from authoritative accounts—will make the highly human quality of each religion evident, and thus excite the reader to further reading in a vast field.

IF ANY reader of this book wonders why a teacher of philosophy should desert the traditional themes to write a work on Fascism, the answer is contained in a statement made by one of the distinguished philosophical journals of Europe, the Philosophische Hefte published in former Czechoslovakia: "Today the issue is not between this or that school of philosophy, but the possibility of the survival of any philosophy at all. The foundations of culture are tottering." Everything depends upon repairing the material and the spiritual basis of life. Under these circumstances, philosophy dare not abstract itself from the political and economic struggles of the present day. No struggle is more crucial than that between Democracy and Fascism.

Today the problem of securing individual freedom, democracy, peace and prosperity is a problem in organizing world government, and to that problem this book brings a fresh solution backed by fresh analysis. Six months after this book was first published, the war it sought to avert began. The present, shorter version of Union Now appears in answer to a rapidly rising demand, and after publication of 15 editions of the unabridged version in less than a year. It shows how the war has been convincing people, even more than did the threat of war, that the book's proposal of Inter-democracy Federal Union is timely to a high degree.
