was necessary change he wanted to conduct a social analysis what was both
empirical and theorically sound. What he did was what anthropologists
would do today he took empirical data and made a theory out of it. He came
up with social classes. He divides them into three classes Bourgeoisies,
Proletariat, and the others which includes the: petite bourgeoisies
lumpenproletariat and peasantry farmers. His solution was the elimination
of private property.
11)Bourgeoisies: derived their power and status from owning the means to
produce wealth. Basically they used their money to exploit labour and gain
more money. In the case of the factory the owner would be the bourgeoisies,
he would want to maximize their profits but the workers want to maximize
their salary there is an inherent tension between the two.
12)Proletariat: owners of `labour power` labour power being the physical
ability to do work but they don’t own property. Therefore, they have to work
for the bourgeoisies that have money. That have to enter into wage labour in
the case of the factory it would be the workers who would be the proletariat.
The wages are two low to save up to gain property they do not get sufficient
income therefore, they are exploited this is what Marx means when he
mentions ``exploitation is inevitable`. Class conflict is inherent to the
capitalist system say Marx it is a system that one cannot escape. Factory
workers want more money; factory owners want more money to eat more.
13)Petite Bourgeoisies: these are the small business owners the artisans. They
own some property but they do some do the work themselves.
14)Lumpenproletariat: these are disgarded ppl beggars fro example prisoners,
15)Historical Materialism: a way of conceptualizing history based on material
economic forces is a Marxist view. What he wanted to do was write history
of workers lives, unlike other history books that were based only on the
elites and which war happened when he focused on the material conditions
of ppl`s lives. The basic idea is that throughout history ppls ideological
practices and experience are linked to their material environment. Marxist
also saw that conditions change over time they are not static. Marxist wanted
to change the Western states he also said ppl can only realize their potential
in a free society he means in a society where there is not poverty, misery and
political oppression. Their emancipation required a change in the material
conditions. He did not want to operate it in pamphlets or articles.
