Anyone else have qualms about teaching Marxism as part of the A Level English Lit. spec? Consider that Marxism, implemented in full, led to the deaths of hundreds of millions (under Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot etc.). I know that we apply a Marxist lens to literary texts and, as such, aren't explicitly advocating Marxism as a political theory but we are still filling young minds with these ideas. A cursory internet search of 'Marxism deaths of millions' throws up the expected chilling results. TLDR: Made uneasy by the Marxist framework used for analysing texts at A Level (English Lit). Would welcome people's thoughts. Thanks.
