Karl Marx- Wage, Labor, and Capital

Karl Marx

Drawing from two (or more) of the following readings from Marx (Wage, Labor, and Capital; The Manifesto of the Communist Party. The Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts) elaborate and explicate Marx’s assessment an analysis of industrial capitalism. What are some of the unique/primary/defining characteristics of the capitalist system. Characteristics that fuel it and that ensure its continued growth?. Explore Marx’s assertion of the necessary relationship between these characteristics. And a growing inequality and rigidity of classes, specifically the increasing, and multiple layers/realities of exploitation, alienation. And de-humanization of the proletariat (the wage worker).

 Further Description
