The state of nature is the state in which man first existed. The right to property consists of whether individuals have a defensible right to a certain form of property, whether it be wealth, objects, or land. Social inequality consists of inequality between citizens in political society resulting from differences in property. All references to inequality herein are to social inequality, not to any other type. Finally, for the purpose of brevity, all references to governments are references to governments formed by the consent of the governed unless separately denoted.
Karl Marx and Max Weber both agreed that capitalism generates alienation in modern societies, but the cause for it were both different. For Marx it is due to economic inequality in where the capitalist thinks that the workers worth nothing more than a source of labour, that can be employed and dismissed at will. This causes the workers to be dehumanised by their jobs (in the past, routine factory work and in the present-day, managing demands on a computer), which leads to the workers finding slight satisfaction and feeling incapable of improving their situation. It was noted by Marx four methods on how capitalism alienates workers. The first, is alienation from the function of working.
Karl Marx’s key tenet as to inequality is capitalism in his eyes defines one’s social class having a direct influence on one’s life experiences and life chances. The problem with capitalism is that is distorts the structure and meaning of the work process, with negative consequences for society as a whole and especially for workers. The distortion comes from several characteristics basic to the capitalist mode of economic organization: private property, surplus expropriation, the division of labor, and the alienation of work. Private property is a social activity, requiring groups of people working together to create things. Private property is the byproduct of division of labor.
Without private property, workers or laborers would not also exist. What does alienation means? Alienation is a condition of workers in a capitalist economy, resulting from a lack of identity with the products of their labor and a sense of being controlled or exploited or simply being estranged of oneself. According to Fall (2007), to be alienated from something is to lack wholehearted identification with it and instead to regard it as strange or alien and perhaps as an obstacle in one 's way or as menacing to oneself. Private property ownership arises and as it arises owners seek workers to grow and earn profit.
The previous consensus of elitist figures' exclusivity in the political arena was no longer the only option and the engagement of the working class in politics directly impacted the role of citizenship in the nation state. Other social institutions such as the courts of justice were also developed for the everyday man. However, Turner also states that capitalism and citizenship provides a contradictory relationship as citizenship is a status position that mitigates the negative effects of social class position with capitalist society. He notes that status entitlement can become a cause of status inequality and this is in particular an area which Marshall did not address in his theory of citizenship. As a framework, the three elements of Marshall's theory appear to be a utopian like structure but it must be noted that Marshall centered his citizenship theory around the majority of society and failed to include minorities and women in his thinking.
Alienation is the separation of an individual from others and the feeling of lack of involvement and pointlessness (Marsh, 1996). According to Marsh (1996), Marx saw alienation as a central feature of capitalism. Workers are alienated from their work because their activity is competitive rather than cooperative and above all, it is controlled by someone else (Marsh, 1996). Human alienation’s increase reaches its height in a capitalistic society when the gain of capital and the demand for profit dominate all other requirements (Haralambos and Holborn, 2008). This is where we see that capitalism is based on the exploitation of the proletariat workers by the bourgeoisie (Mandel, 1976).
Introduction Sociology Bryan Turner Bryan Turner contributed a lot of time familiarising himself with Durkheim, Weber and Marx’s view on rights. In Turner’s opinion Durkheim’s view did not satisfy the rights of individuals and was based more on social cohesion, Weber’s view allowed one to see passed the rights of just the state and Marx’s view was based off of the economic system. Turner found that Marx’s views were too influenced; this is because Turner believed that human rights should not be viewed exclusively from an individualist. The criticism, from Turner, on Weber’s view was partial based on Strauss’ criticism that Weber attacked the idea of natural rights. The two concepts that Strauss’ believed were attacked were the “conventionalism”
He was born in Leith beside Owen Sound, where his great-grandfather, Samuel, had landed from England in 1838.

Once Charles became of working age, in his early teens, he took advantage of his bilingualism to search for a farm work 30 km south of Farnham to the township of St. Armand East by the border between Quebec and Vermont. By leaving the Guillet 's traditional family area, one of the first to do so since this Guillet branch arrived in 1718, Charles would have to deal with the lack of family contact by learning to be independent. His first job on his way to manhood was with Alpheus Deming on his well established farm and saw mill, the first mill in the area. Alpheus, the second generation of Demings born in Quebec, had improved his loyalist father 's initial homestead, of 200 acres of mostly virgin forest, into 100 acres of pastures and crops and a 2 acre apple orchard. This area of Quebec was soon became well known for its apples.
