Class -Capitalism is made up of two groups: the proletariat and the bourgeoisie. -The proletariat is the working class and the bourgeoisie are the owners of the means of productions. ----The means of productions are the machines, the things that you use to make things. -The bourgeoisie exploits the proletariat. -Pro wants to find work, they have to go to boug -pro need work in order to survive, cap has this -pro is labor and have time, boug have work and money for wages -both can’t live without the other -just enough to survive -Marx believed that value came from labor. Pro has value and boug doesn’t -even though the pro do all the work, the bou gets everything -victims of exploitation -not conscious of this, both victims of false consciousness (believe hegemony to your own detriment) -pro can achieve class consciousness aware of false consciousness and reject elite in favor of coalition -capitalist become competitive and drive them over to pro side. The pro out number the boug so it’s easy to brush aside and overthrow capitalism. Alienation
