Marx's "XI"th Thesis on Feuerbach is Not Explicit Enough.

Marx's "XI"th Thesis on Feuerbach is Not Explicit Enough.

" XI
Philosophers have only interpreted the world in different ways. What is crucial, however, is to change it."

(Theses on Feuerbach by Karl Marx, translated by Carl Manchester: en.wikisource.org/wiki/Theses_on_Feuerbach )

The world should be changed; but to what should it be changed? If we, collectively, don't know what the world should be changed to, we'll continue to change it in the same way we have been doing since times immemorial, and the world will continue to be changed according to the short-sighted visions of those who happen to be at the helm at the whichever time.

I think that Marx's "XI"th thesis on Feuerbach is not explicit enough--Marx should have explained what he thought the world should be changed to. We try to change the world to our liking with most of our actions, but so far the results have been the transformation of the world from bad to worse, on the whole.

A meaningful change is being desired; Any odd change will not do! A meaningful change will be desired by all, not only a majority of us. We all have to decide what we want to change to!
