Karl Marx considered in a very serious way, issues surrounding society at his time, and even offered a prediction about the possible trends in the future, with regard to the system of governance as well as the economic trends. He considered that capitalist system of government was one that was comprised of several unsatisfied individuals and would certainly end up in failure.
The political system at the time of Marx was considered to have been filled with injustices. The major injustice was found in the protection of private property by the political system. This was for Marx the greatest source of all societal evils. For him, real power resides in the people. Marx believed that when this power is exercised, a revolution would be inevitable.
This study is concerned with Marxian understanding of the issues of capitalism, politics and power. In order to effectively achieve this, issues related with the proletariat, bourgeoisie, superstructure, material goods, access to resources, economic structure, oppression, as well as inequalities as understood in Marx will be discussed.
