A lot of medieval scholars would probably laugh at this understanding of the term (not hard to see why marxism isn't well received in academia), but I digress.


Clearly, Marxism needs a stronger connection to medieval scholarly theory in order to appeal to the masses of today. In relation to the analysis of feudalism I think the biggest problem with Marxists is the transhistoricization of value and the various tomes of bad theories that come from this.

I don't really care much about the 'appeal' of Marxism. that was more of a snide comment not meant to be taken too seriously.
