Marxism again!

Alienation, exploitation, bourgeoisie, proletariat revolution…

Anybody who is or has studied sociology (or economics, history and many other subjects) will know who I am talking about when I mention the words above. Good ol’ Karl Marx. But as mentioned in a previous blog (https://studentblogs.le.ac.uk/sociology/2014/10/09/an-overview-of-marxs-theory/), his work can be tricky to understand. Although I tried to outline his ideas in this blog it was perhaps a bit too vague and simplistic. So I suggest watching this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qOP2V_np2c0) which explains brilliantly what capitalism and Marxism is all about. It has humour and sketches which I find very useful when trying to learn something. But I will say this: it is a lot of information all in one go so it will probably take several viewings to fully understand it!

I hope this helps!
