“Of Freya and Fenrir”
I'm totally new to marxist thought. Sorry if this is a bad question, but is the general consensus among marxists that we can learn from people like Mao, Lenin, Castro, and Trotsky without fully approving of all of their actions? Also, sorry for asking a totally unrelated question and I also hope this isn't a bad one, but are most socialists and marxists essentially comrades because socialism and communism are very similar? I've noticed a lot of marxists seem to be friendly with socialists.
