Marx’s ideas on this exploitation refers to a feudalistic driven society, where the performance of labour is over and above what is needed to produce goods consumed by the labourer. An example to sustain his theory is of when the exploiter ends up with a surplus. The proletariat or working class is therefore not paid the full value of what she or he produces, the rest is the surplus value which is the capitalist’s profits, and according to Marx known as the ‘unpaid labour of the working class’. The bourgeoisie force down wages of the proletariat to increase their own profits and this creates a more direct conflict between the classes and gives rise to the development of class consciousness in the working class. The working class, through trade unions and other struggles becomes conscious of itself as an exploited class.

This is mainly because the first hour or so is a big set up for the main plot. Some of the best moments that follow are echoes of The Great Dictator, in which Chaplin ridiculed fascism. Unfortunately, the worst moments reminded me of a justly forgotten Jerry Lewis comedy from 1972, The Day the Clown Cried, about a clown whose job was to entertain Jewish children on their way to the gas chambers. I can well understand why anyone might be offended by Benigni 's portrait of a concentration camp. The brutality, racism and hopelessness are all underplayed.

Satisfying his customers was one of his key priorities when he was working in the automobile industry.

The Great Depression saw massive power grabs unlike ever seen in the United States and Friedman doesn’t want to pass this platform off as liberal or in conjunction with liberal ideas. Talking about this portrayal of liberalism in his modern government, Friedman says, “enemies of the system of private enterprise have thought it wise to appropriate its [liberalism] label” (5).

During his tenure at Ford, he introduced precedents that would eventually spread to all factories around the world. He set the standard for a respectable and smooth running company. He is credited with mass producing the first widely available and affordable automobile, the Ford Model T. It was a cheap and easy to produce alternative to older automobiles, that were almost exclusively owned by the rich and elite. This allowed for everyday men and women to have the luxury that only the wealthy had before this time in our nation’s history. He is most recognized for is his implementation of the assembly linee, and of the first to create such a time and cost efficient process for making and selling automobiles.

Henry Ford is the reason that the average American had the ability to own a vehicle. Before Ford started making vehicles, cars were a luxury item only owned by doctors and lawyers. Ford began making his Model T using a revolutionary idea, the moving assembly line.
It availed the perfect medium for many people particularly in the United States who did not know the extent of the Jews’ suffering. The use of Chaplin to portray two different individuals (Hitler and a poor Jew) was considered a genius move.
