3  1. The Struggle Between Social Classes. - Marx believed that all the problems throughout history were caused by a struggle between social classes. 2. The Critique of Capitalism - In a capitalist society there is an economic minority that dominates and exploits the working class majority. 3. Promotion of a Proletarian Revolution - The working class must seize political power through a social revolution, depriving the capitalist classes of material wealth and place society into collective ownership.

4  Marx was living during the industrial revolution. He was angered by the treatment of workers in Europe.  Conditions in European factories were very harsh and unsafe. Most often workers were exploited and had no real rights and received pennies payment.  This caused Marx to believe that factories and farms should be controlled by workers, rather than landlords.

5  Marx was a journalist by trade and put his radical ideas into news articles and magazines  Journalism can be seen as an activist trade. This is why it was instinctive for Marx to speak out against what he thought was wrong, and demand revolution.  These radical ideas often got Marx in trouble with the law. He was deported from France and Belgium because of his works.

6  Friedrich Engels- Worked alongside Marx creating the communist manifesto, sharing his radical ideas.  Hegel- very prominent German philosopher. His views were widely taught and his students were highly regarded. Marx was one of his students and fell into the left-winged group of the class.
