Jessica Gimbel 2/18/11 History 120 Thesis In an era of revolutions, Marx and Maupassant tackle the question of class conflict by either advocating communism over socialism or by exemplifying the difficulties of the lower class both in order to synthesize class-consciousness and eliminate class distinctions as a means of power. In this sense Marx established a following more effectively than Maupassant because his “Communist Manifesto” reached out to more Europeans and became the groundwork for communism to survive in Europe in the 19 th and early 20 th century. Marx: - Bourgeoisie came out of feudal system collapsing and proletariat was a product of capitalism and modern economics - Problems with capitalism: poor are going to stay poor and the rich will continue to exploit the poor to stay rich -Need a similar lifestyle between the two so revolution wont continue in a circle - Writing in period of time where class struggle taking over society and revolutions continue to overtake lifestyle – class rank damaging to society
