Class judgement is based on the fallowing:
For political scientist income is amongst the more sufficient ways to categorize the people.
There are two conceptions of class which is social scientific and
Marx was a revolutionary socialist. who was german born, grew up in Britain, the era in which he wrote his social analysis.
Feudalism - economic organization which ranged from king queens bishops peasants and aristocracy
Aristocracy dominated economics as well as politics
Marx referred to the private enterprise and profit as capitalism in the industrial revolutionary period.
Proletariate ; wage working and industrial working class. Better then the law of the previous practiced class ‘Peasants’
Bourgeoisie ; Business class and ownership class
3 things that changed the class structure in the industrial revolution: industrialization urbanization secularization England was the first to industrialize and change and also was the first to suffer the consequences encountered with this industrial change. Things such as pollution employee exploitation, drop in wages, lack of supply and demand.
Alienation: Was what Jhon Marx realized would happen to the people from industrialization and referred it as alienation. Lack of satisfaction joy and an excess of anxiety, the working environment and the individuals that make it or break it, and at some point even friends and family get taken away. All these things contributed to the alienation of the working class.
Alienation in no doubt was marx’s hypothesis and the outcome was revolution against the bourgeoisie from the working class. He believed their would be an interim called the dictatorship of the proletarians.
Marx said he envisioned a next step for socialism aka communism. This change was called the workers revolt aka the proletarian revolution
Universalization of the social class was needed and re-education was mandatory for both the proletariats and the bourgeoisie. Marx said the government and state would wither away and all citizens would contribute to society and only the distribution of basic need. No inheritance, social status. Income was based on what you needed and what contributions you made for society. This was what socialism was. This was post proletarian after the change in society occurred.
If you own the land you were the definition of aristocracy and if you worked the land then you were deemed the proletariat. This was Marx’s theory.

3. Why was marxism avoided :
4. Economic concessions Union rights
5. The welfare state and interventionist state
6. This caused a middle class and the dispersion of wealth
8. Marx saw religion as the opium of the masses and said if people looked to their religion that they would look at the after life. However if people don’t believe entirely in faith then the number of people who base their choices on faith would decrease. This is why a revolution was formed. This wasn’t possible with a capitalist state aka a semi conscious.
10. Union households : A group of states or nations united into one political body, as that of the american colonies at the time of the revolution. These union households support liberal party vs the new democratic party.
12. Political parties all appeal to middle class people that was the first concept marx introduced to people in his terms. This is a very common practice in Canadian politics.
14. Social class and income standards ; REFER TO CHAPTER 2 , READ AND ANALYZE
16. In Canadian politics it isn’t what class your from but rather…
