Marxism Karl Marx (1818-1883) established the widely known ideology , Communism. It was pre- dominant during the World War I to the early 1990’s. Till date there are governments that term themselves as Communist like China, Cuba and Vietnam. Communism was born from a line of intellectual and political development from Marx and Engels through V. I. Lenin and others who stressed on the authoritarian and centralise aspects of Marx’s ideologies. Marxism is a proper tool for understanding social relations and change. Many thinkers still approve the Marxist critique of capitalism to contain truth in it. Alienation : The Young Marx Alienation refers to the relationship between two or more people, or parts of oneself, in which one is cut off from a stranger to ,or alien to,the other. He argues that in Capitalism,individuals become cut off from themselves(families and friends) and products of their labour thus,indidviduals cannot be fully developed in a capitalist society.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
