This society has established new classes, new oppression and new forms of class struggles among the proletarians. This in turn has split the society into two ranks of social struggles the bourgeoisie and the proletarians. “It is high time that communists should openly punish their arms Capitalism was the sole element involved in the make of the bourgeoisie society. This was a profit driven system that was binding to expand. This was manifested by the global market of labour, evidently expanding by new means of technology.
Capitalism is an oppressive economical and social system. It serves as a tool used by the rich minority to oppress, divide and control our society, our relationships and our governments. These divisions created by the capitalistic economic and social system have been blamed for many of the disparities in our society by conflict theory philosophers such as Karl Marx. These philosophers state that since groups are in a power struggle, the needs of all will not be met and will result in the exploitation and oppression of disadvantaged individuals . Capitalism is a system based on exploitation.
In the Communist Manifesto, written by Karl Marx, and Friedrich Engels. The authors make sure that it’s very well known that proletarians (the working class), are being oppressed by the Bourgeois, and they also make sure every one knows that it is not the first time in history when there is a minority that rules over the majority, and that this ends up in class conflict, that leads to a revolution where the powerful are overthrown. The way that the Marx, and Engels demonstrate that the Bourgeois are inherently oppressive is by talking about the way their private land is giving them increase of power over the proletarians, and that the proletarians are being in a way enslaved by their labor (job). Instead of feeling enslaved by their job they should (in a ideal society) happy about their labor, but are instead, in the contrary, being exploited to mass produce, and not being paid enough for their labor; demonstrating that Bourgeois are benefiting from the
There has always been a continuous conflict between the different classes; the end result of these conflicts is always, either the total suppression of the oppressed classes, or a revolution, which leads to an overhaul of society. He blames the cause for the separation of modern society into only two groups, on the fall of feudalism. These new class antagonisms are between the proletariat, and the bourgeoisie. Marx views the rise of the bourgeoisie in Europe as the result of a couple of factors; firstly, he believes that, the initial elements of the bourgeoisie, were developed by the chartered burghers who evolved from the serfs of the medieval ages. Next, following the great colonization of the 16th and 17th centuries the market expanded, leading to a great need for increased production.
He says that through mass industry they have sacrificed everything from the old way of religion, employment, to a man’s self worth and replaced it with monetary value. He is mad that the people of ole that use to be upper class such as skills man, trades people, & shopkeepers, are now slipping into the proletarians or working class. He talks of the bourgeoisie getting to be so greedy that they are forced to nest all over the world to hock their goods. This is talking about the new import and export system that has formed. He says the working class has to deal with the flux of the market and is disposed of more easily than the machines used in the market.
When it comes to belief systems, there are many ideas which, if challenged, tend to provoke violent defensive reactions on the part of their believers. “The Communist Manifesto”, written by Karl Marx, has become one of the world’s most influential and significant pieces of political propaganda ever written. Karl Marx wrote this work in the middle of the 19th century, which was a heady time in human history. “The Communist Manifesto”, begins with a theory of world history based on class struggles, and provides an explanation of the abuse of the working class by the bourgeoisie. The evils perpetrated upon the working class, the proletariat are enumerated and the injustice of the capitalist economic system, whereby a few get rich off the labor of many, is outlined.
(Reich, p.1) In “The Communist Manifesto” Marx claimed that conditions of existence and prosperity of bourgeoisie ultimately will be directed toward destruction of bourgeoisie as a class. (Marx, p.34-35) These essential conditions create set of destructive consequences for bourgeoisie. Marx highlighted that property relations, expansion of production and trade induced by constant revolutionizing of production which is essential characteristics of bourgeois society leads to unfavorable outcome for bourgeoisie. (Marx, p.33) In contrast, Reich asserts that symbolic analysts are in a great demand in a world and it is quite possible that this tendency will continue or rich will continue getting richer.

Everyday, the class division within the economy infused with race and gender inequality becomes more apparent as a dominating global threat to the international society’s stability. Marxism maintains its presence today by addressing this problem at its roots, acting as a “living set of ideas that helps to better understand the world”, according to Alan Maass, an editor of the Socialist Worker Newspaper. Marx’s parting words etched on his grace is, “The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways. The point, however, is to change it”.
In terms of economics, Karl Marx explains that the proletarians are constantly being exploited by the Bourgeoisies. The proletarians are used for production means; working to produce something that they themselves can’t manage to purchase for themselves. Furthermore, the bourgeois, profit off of the proletarians hard work and manage to maintain this relationship in order to continue to profit economically. Economics flows directly into the formation of class struggles. Because of capitalism there will forever be a class with a majority of the wealth and a less prominent class that struggles and can 't afford the products they produce.
The bourgeois exploited the proletarian, working class, for cheap labour and capitalistic approach for the production of material goods. Marx witnessed children being exploited and realizes that this class was being exploited for the bourgeois gains in wealth. “these workers, who must sell themselves piecemeal, are a commodity like any other article of commerce and equally exposed to all the vicissitudes of competition…”(7) This quote expresses how the working class are selling their lives in
