Marx - 19 th century England Marx said that capitalism and democracy are completely incompatible Private property – is individual property ownership. The owners of private property were the bourgeoisie. Proletariats did not own property Labor power – our means to survival – you are forced to sell your labor power for wages in order for sustenance and survival Proletariats – felt they lived low, like animals. Marx felt very sorry for them – they had an animal level of existence. Only in capitalism can an individual buy and sell Where as feudalism – the land was passed down in families The workers got poorer, they more they produced – the externalization of workers They were pushed down to animal existence. Even animals have a better life – they have fresh air, they can fly away. Workers do not control the product of their labor, therefore they get poorer - they have no access – it is taken away from them. The worker is making the capitalist rich, expanding the capitalists’ lives and capitalism but their own life is not enriching Exploitation – only source of profit value under capitalism – Marx said it is stealing value from the worker, underpaying. The worker only gets a fraction of the value in the form of a salary.

    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.
