Marxists Views

Marxists views on Culture and Identity

Karl Marx (another founder of sociology). Focused on the effect of capitalism. He thought that the economic system (infrastructure) of a society determined the beliefs and values of that society (the superstructure).
What do marxists believe? that the most important important force in society is class conflict.
What happens in CAPITALIST SOCIETY? Workers ar employed to produce goods which are sold by their employers at a profit.
Only a bit of this profit ends up in the workers wages, where does the rest go? Most of the profit is kept by the employer.
What did the marxist say about the unfairness in class conflict? that if workers were allowed to notice the unfairness of this, they'd revolt. So, to avoid revolution the capitalist system shapes the superstructure to make sure that the workers accept their lot in life.
What do institutions like the family, education and religion lead individuals into? Accepting the inequalities of capitalism.
Marxist think that people are socialised..... Into a culture based on their social class.
They think that peoples identity depends on.... Their class position in the capitalist system
