Marx’s ideas not only justified how the specific events came about, but explained that the root of where these events came from. Marx’s ideas explained that the root of these events occurred from the inequality of how the capitalist class abused their wealth and power only to become wealthier and powerful, while the wage-workers become oblivious to it. A limitation of Marx’s ideas is that alienation does not relate to all cases of financial inequality, which are heavily based on culture. Marx’s ideas in regards to alienation is targets more individualistic cultures rather than collectivistic cultures. This is because individualistic cultures value one's own goals, motives, and success.

This is completely unfair in my opinion and really enforces the capitalistic views that many nations are run by. So, because a region has a disadvantage and are in need of help, the hierarchy will come in and help you, but at what cost? The cost of doing things their way, by their terms. In conclusion, I hope that someday there is an international financial institution that is build off of a true democracy and that not only all people have an equal say, but that all regions, no matter what their financial situation, have an equal say as
The Progressive movement sought to end the influence of large corporations, provide more rights and benefits to workers, and end the control possessed by party leaders. The Progressive Era was a period in American history in which improving working conditions, exposing corruption, improving the way of life, expanding democracy, and making reforms were the objectives at hand. Woodrow Wilson was the ideal leader to help bring new reforms that could really help the working class, he believed that leaders should make decisions that is at its best interest for the public and during his time as president he really took the time to
While capitalism is seen as an evil, it must not be seen as an evil but rather the love for capitalism is the thing that must be eliminated for it is the true evil. It is just that capitalism was merely used by the few as an instrument for their own goodness at the expense of the many which is not for the goodness of all. What we see in the movie is the outcome of having an affair with capitalism which led to a worst impact to the people affected.

Stability is considered the highest corporate and capitalistic value and this clearly showed their stance (Linsey 57). The Rockefellers were capitalists and Rivera opposed this type of economy.

In the theory of alienation, Marx gives the answer on how do the ways in which people earn their living affect their bodies, minds and also their daily lives. Workers in capitalist society do not have the machines, raw materials, factories which they use in their work. It is owned by the capitalists to whom the workers must sell their "labor power", or ability to do work, in return for a wage (Bertell Ollman, 2004). This system of labor displays four relations that lie at the core of Marx 's theory of alienation.
This was mainly due to the capitalistic government where the economy was based on private owned industries. Bellamy’s idea of a more socialistic economy was favored more by the lower-class as it would have allowed the government to better allocate wealth which may close the gap between the upper-class and lower-class citizens. In Bellamy’s novel Dr. Leete, explains that everyone gets the same opportunity, same wages, and same education. The government distributes everything so that the citizens all get equal chances. The only difference between citizens is what he or she chooses to do with their resources (Bellamy).

After reading through the book I came to the belief that Locke was more influential concerning 18th century revolts. He believed that government should protect our natural rights, such as: life and property. His opinions impacted political changes in America and France and gave people a reason to break away from the existing government. This was such a popular idea that it still lives to this day. It is now what we strive to base our government on.
Karl Marx condemned the capitalist system for alienating and blocking human creativity. Capitalists have full control over the means of production, and workers do not. Workers are required to fulfill the capitalists needs without being allowed to contribute their own ideas for a product. As a result, people become machines; losing touch with human nature and basing their decisions on money, instead of kindness. Melville's “Bartleby the Scrivener” is a story about rebellion.
