Society promotes the use of politically correct terms and the idea of equality when the mentality of racism is far from extinct. The act of even recognizing race, of recognizing the mental associations with race, is in fact racism. This state of neutrality is a luxury only the privileged can access. This impartiality is the exertion of power by the racially privileged and is increasingly destructive towards the ‘other’. The first effect of racism is a sense of loss.
Conclusion Ultimately, Jaggar’s error theory is unsound due to the fact of a fundamental misinterpretation of capitalism in which Jaggar believes that work is generally awful under the economic system, when in actuality it is not so awful. Work is not so awful under capitalism due to the nature of capitalism that promotes competition to encourage entrepreneurship, which benefits society as a whole in comparison to socialist feminism. Although Jaggar’s error theory is unsound, the rest of her theory remains unaffected.
Weber’s work is superior though because he integrates examples of religion and morals to further support these points: the oppressive systems of capitalism and the persistent class antagonisms. Disproving even Marx’s own identity as an economist, Weber’s argument is marginally superior because it uses morality to elaborate on Marx’s seemingly-economic conclusions regarding the rise of bourgeois capitalism.

This lost potential is evident in the superior argument Weber includes that Marx neglects, but could have easily included. Weber takes these three claims and provides evidence of the adoption, transformation, and removal of morals and ethos through the guise of religion, to achieve deeper political goals.

Machiavelli believes that the governed should have the right to revolt if they are not happy but they ultimately need to be made happy by the monarch. Locke would consider Machiavelli an advocator for absolutism while Marx would consider Locke an advocator for modern capitalism. The three views are quite similar and very different on their own right and are very relevant to their times of that which they try to instill philosophy of the rights for societal needs.

According to Dei & Caliste (2000), this form of modern racism is based, among others, on conditions that are socially created which maintain and reinforce such environment. A critical understanding of the structural patterns, the identity of the dominant group, and their social location necessitates that these practices be identified. Second, being aware of the invisibility of whiteness can dismantle the system of oppression (Yee, 2005, p. 90). Recognition is not enough since social service workers collude with the status quo. Despite recognizing its existence, they have failed to see themselves as implicated in the same structure that oppresses them.
His critiques highlight his concern that capitalism makes economic exclusion inevitable. He believes that under a capitalist system, workers lose their identities as individual agents and instead become slaves to their own labor and to their employer. One may initially claim that working actually contributes to a sense of self, rather than detracts from it. While this makes sense intuitively, Marx contends that “labor is external to the worker, i.e. it does not belong to his intrinsic nature; that in his work, therefore, he does not affirm himself but denies himself” (30).
The demographic tidal wave illusion from the business sectors is merely an exaggeration as they believe that non-white’s will eventually whip out United States white’s population. Chavez gives attention to the fact that ‘judgment should not be based on skin color but by content of one’s character’ (6). Furthermore, she doesn’t only criticize the Multiculturalist techniques but emphasizes through reasoning why the Multiculturalist approach would imposed negative attitude towards the non-whites in the United States. This will not only create negativity but a racial chaos between whites and non-whites living in the United States. For this purpose, Chavez is demonstrating to all non-white Americans that the benefits provide by the Government is only a cover up for the whites to remain in control of their population.
Philosophy in itself is an unidentifiable subject matter because of the lack of specificity in the fields it touches upon. It is “defined” as a way for humans to strive for ourselves in this reality in which we live in. No one person has the answers as to who we are and why we are living. The value of philosophy changes in character as history changes, thus the meaning of philosophy is what we as individuals perceive it to be. Though subjective, there are core ideals that unite the beliefs of all philosophy, such as the idea of the self.
They are not permitted to give input into the products that they create because of their status, instead being told what to do and how to do it by the bourgeoisie who possess a higher status than themselves. In the grand scheme, these proletariats are only a cog in the wheel. This violates the principle of having the ability to pursue one’s goals. If someone is reduced to only a cog in the wheel, then the conditions for human well-being are not being met. Marx says that “the division of labour is a convenient, useful means, a skilful application of human powers for social wealth, but it is a diminution of the capacity of each man taken individually (Early Writings, 373).” This quote enforces that there is a separation of man from his labor, as it is a helpful tool in the process of capitalism, but that it removes the humanness of each person.
Communism could have been the answer to governing a nation but due to the vice of power-hungry leaders, democracy surpasses this institution with evidence from history, revealing why these political powers machines cannot remain mutually exclusive. Communism can be regarded as a social system in which property is owned by the community and each member works for the common benefit. Such an ideal where the community as a whole works for equal benefit may seem to paint the perfect picture at first but this theory becomes tainted. The Communist Manifesto proclaims, “Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labor of others by means of such appropriations” (Marx 12). What communism lacks, due to ignorance by its perfect picture, is the aspect of proper management to further a country’s prestige.
