Socialism is neither historically necessary nor inevitable; what Marx/Engels/Luxemburg failed to consider is the means by which barbarism can, by virtue of its barbarity, replicate itself unto a more ultimate demise.

This potential for self-replication can also be construed as a weakness; our foresight of this 'more ultimate demise' makes possible a return to the anti-barbaric. That is, the very inevitability of capital's encroachments is the thing which makes it evitable.
