Disputed [ edit ] Democracy is the road to socialism. Attributed to Marx in recent years, including in Communism by Tom Lansford, p. Misattributed [ edit ] The oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which particular representatives of the oppressing class shall represent and repress them in parliament. The rich will do anything for the poor but get off their backs. Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time. Owners of capital will stimulate working class to buy more and more of expensive goods, houses and technology, pushing them to take more and more expensive credits, until their debt becomes unbearable.
The unpaid debt will lead to bankruptcy of banks which will have to be nationalized and State will have to take the road which will eventually lead to communism. Said to be a quote from Das Kapital in an anonymous email, this attribution has been debunked at Snopes. Often attributed to Lenin or Stalin , less often to Marx. According to the book, "They Never Said It", p.
Experts on the Soviet Union reject the rope quote as spurious. If we were to hang the last capitalist, another would appear to sell us the rope. A variant of the above misquote, sometimes also attributed to Lenin. This gained popularity during the glasnost era when black market activity was at its most visible in the USSR; meant to show the profit motive was human nature and cannot be eradicated.
Surround yourself with people who make you happy. People who genuinely care. In Professor Siegel's thesis, what lay behind this punishing sacrifice of his health may have been guilt about self-involvement and egoism, originally induced in Karl Marx by his father. In , a retrodiagnosis of Marx's skin disease was made by dermatologist Sam Shuster of Newcastle University and for Shuster the most probable explanation was that Marx suffered not from liver problems, but from hidradenitis suppurativa , a recurring infective condition arising from blockage of apocrine ducts opening into hair follicles.
This condition, which was not described in the English medical literature until hence would not have been known to Marx's physicians , can produce joint pain which could be misdiagnosed as rheumatic disorder and painful eye conditions. There, "although the skin lesions were called 'furuncules', 'boils' and 'carbuncles' by Marx, his wife and his physicians, they were too persistent, recurrent, destructive and site-specific for that diagnosis".
The sites of the persistent 'carbuncles' were noted repeatedly in the armpits, groins, perianal , genital penis and scrotum and suprapubic regions and inner thighs, "favoured sites of hidradenitis suppurativa". Professor Shuster claimed the diagnosis "can now be made definitively". Shuster went on to consider the potential psychosocial effects of the disease, noting that the skin is an organ of communication and that hidradenitis suppurativa produces much psychological distress, including loathing and disgust and depression of self-image, mood and well-being, feelings for which Shuster found "much evidence" in the Marx correspondence.
Professor Shuster went on to ask himself whether the mental effects of the disease affected Marx's work and even helped him to develop his theory of alienation. Following the death of his wife Jenny in December , Marx developed a catarrh that kept him in ill health for the last 15 months of his life. It eventually brought on the bronchitis and pleurisy that killed him in London on 14 March age 64 , dying a stateless person. There were between nine and eleven mourners at his funeral. Several of his closest friends spoke at his funeral, including Wilhelm Liebknecht and Friedrich Engels.
Engels' speech included the passage:. Marx's surviving daughters Eleanor and Laura , as well as Charles Longuet and Paul Lafargue , Marx's two French socialist sons-in-law, were also in attendance. Liebknecht, a founder and leader of the German Social Democratic Party, gave a speech in German and Longuet, a prominent figure in the French working-class movement, made a short statement in French. Lochner, whom Engels described as "an old member of the Communist League"; and Carl Schorlemmer , a professor of chemistry in Manchester, a member of the Royal Society and a communist activist involved in the Baden revolution.
Marx and his family were reburied on a new site nearby in November The tomb at the new site, unveiled on 14 March ,  bears the carved message: " Workers of All Lands Unite ", the final line of The Communist Manifesto ; and, from the 11th " Thesis on Feuerbach " as edited by Engels , "The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways—the point however is to change it". The Marxist historian Eric Hobsbawm remarked: "One cannot say Marx died a failure" because although he had not achieved a large following of disciples in Britain, his writings had already begun to make an impact on the leftist movements in Germany and Russia.
Within 25 years of his death, the continental European socialist parties that acknowledged Marx's influence on their politics were each gaining between 15 and 47 per cent in those countries with representative democratic elections. Marx's view of history, which came to be called historical materialism controversially adapted as the philosophy of dialectical materialism by Engels and Lenin , certainly shows the influence of Hegel's claim that one should view reality and history dialectically.
All the powers of old Europe have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this spectre", and in The Capital he refers to capital as " necromancy that surrounds the products of labour". Though inspired by French socialist and sociological thought,  Marx criticised utopian socialists , arguing that their favoured small-scale socialistic communities would be bound to marginalisation and poverty and that only a large-scale change in the economic system can bring about real change. The other important contributions to Marx's revision of Hegelianism came from Engels's book, The Condition of the Working Class in England in , which led Marx to conceive of the historical dialectic in terms of class conflict and to see the modern working class as the most progressive force for revolution,  as well as from the social democrat Friedrich Wilhelm Schulz , who in Die Bewegung der Produktion described the movement of society as "flowing from the contradiction between the forces of production and the mode of production.
Marx believed that he could study history and society scientifically and discern tendencies of history and the resulting outcome of social conflicts. Some followers of Marx therefore concluded that a communist revolution would inevitably occur.
However, Marx famously asserted in the eleventh of his " Theses on Feuerbach " that "philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point however is to change it" and he clearly dedicated himself to trying to alter the world. Marx's polemic with other thinkers often occurred through critique and thus he has been called "the first great user of critical method in social sciences". Like Tocqueville, who described a faceless and bureaucratic despotism with no identifiable despot,  Marx also broke with classical thinkers who spoke of a single tyrant and with Montesquieu , who discussed the nature of the single despot.
Instead, Marx set out to analyse "the despotism of capital". Marx had a special concern with how people relate to their own labour power. Commodity fetishism provides an example of what Engels called " false consciousness ",  which relates closely to the understanding of ideology. By "ideology", Marx and Engels meant ideas that reflect the interests of a particular class at a particular time in history, but which contemporaries see as universal and eternal. Put another way, the control that one class exercises over the means of production includes not only the production of food or manufactured goods, but also the production of ideas this provides one possible explanation for why members of a subordinate class may hold ideas contrary to their own interests.
Religious suffering is, at one and the same time, the expression of real suffering and a protest against real suffering. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people. The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is the demand for their real happiness. To call on them to give up their illusions about their condition is to call on them to give up a condition that requires illusions. Marx's thoughts on labour were related to the primacy he gave to the economic relation in determining the society's past, present and future see also economic determinism.
The organisation of society depends on means of production. The means of production are all things required to produce material goods, such as land, natural resources and technology but not human labor. The relations of production are the social relationships people enter into as they acquire and use the means of production. Marx differentiated between base and superstructure , where the base or substructure is the economic system and superstructure is the cultural and political system. Despite Marx's stress on critique of capitalism and discussion of the new communist society that should replace it, his explicit critique is guarded, as he saw it as an improved society compared to the past ones slavery and feudalism.
Marx's view of capitalism was two-sided. On the other hand, he characterized capitalism as "revolutionising, industrialising and universalising qualities of development, growth and progressivity" by which Marx meant industrialisation, urbanisation, technological progress , increased productivity and growth, rationality and scientific revolution that are responsible for progress. According to Marx, capitalists take advantage of the difference between the labour market and the market for whatever commodity the capitalist can produce.
Marx observed that in practically every successful industry, input unit-costs are lower than output unit-prices. Marx called the difference " surplus value " and argued that it was based on surplus labour , the difference between what it costs to keep workers alive and what they can produce. At the same time, Marx stressed that capitalism was unstable and prone to periodic crises. We see then: the means of production and of exchange, on whose foundation the bourgeoisie built itself up, were generated in feudal society.
At a certain stage in the development of these means of production and of exchange, the conditions under which feudal society produced and exchanged They had to be burst asunder; they were burst asunder. Into their place stepped free competition, accompanied by a social and political constitution adapted in it, and the economic and political sway of the bourgeois class. A similar movement is going on before our own eyes The productive forces at the disposal of society no longer tend to further the development of the conditions of bourgeois property; on the contrary, they have become too powerful for these conditions, by which they are fettered, and so soon as they overcome these fetters, they bring order into the whole of bourgeois society, endanger the existence of bourgeois property.
Marx believed that those structural contradictions within capitalism necessitate its end, giving way to socialism, or a post-capitalistic, communist society:.
The development of Modern Industry, therefore, cuts from under its feet the very foundation on which the bourgeoisie produces and appropriates products. What the bourgeoisie, therefore, produces, above all, are its own grave-diggers. Its fall and the victory of the proletariat are equally inevitable. Thanks to various processes overseen by capitalism, such as urbanisation, the working class, the proletariat, should grow in numbers and develop class consciousness , in time realising that they can and must change the system. Communism is for us not a state of affairs which is to be established, an ideal to which reality will have to adjust itself.
We call communism the real movement which abolishes the present state of things. The conditions of this movement result from the premises now in existence. In this new society, the alienation would end and humans would be free to act without being bound by the labour market. Corresponding to this is also a political transition period in which the state can be nothing but the revolutionary dictatorship of the proletariat". Marx viewed Russia as the main counter-revolutionary threat to European revolutions. To the sentimental phrases about brotherhood which we are being offered here on behalf of the most counter-revolutionary nations of Europe, we reply that hatred of Russians was and still is the primary revolutionary passion among Germans; that since the revolution [of ] hatred of Czechs and Croats has been added, and that only by the most determined use of terror against these Slav peoples can we, jointly with the Poles and Magyars, safeguard the revolution.
We know where the enemies of the revolution are concentrated, viz. Marx and Engels sympathised with the Narodnik revolutionaries of the s and s. In the first place the policy of Russia is changeless Its methods, its tactics, its manoeuvres may change, but the polar star of its policy — world domination — is a fixed star. In our times only a civilised government ruling over barbarian masses can hatch out such a plan and execute it.
There is but one alternative for Europe. Either Asiatic barbarism, under Muscovite direction, will burst around its head like an avalanche, or else it must re-establish Poland, thus putting twenty million heroes between itself and Asia and gaining a breathing spell for the accomplishment of its social regeneration. Marx supported the cause of Irish independence. In , he wrote Engels: "I used to think the separation of Ireland from England impossible. I now think it inevitable. The English working class will never accomplish anything until it has got rid of Ireland. English reaction in England had its roots Marx spent some time in French Algeria , which had been invaded and made a French colony in , and had opportunity to observe life in colonial North Africa.
His account of British domination, however, reflects the same ambivalence that he shows towards capitalism in Europe. In both cases, Marx recognizes the immense suffering brought about during the transition from feudal to bourgeois society while insisting that the transition is both necessary and ultimately progressive. He argues that the penetration of foreign commerce will cause a social revolution in India.
There cannot remain any doubt but that the misery inflicted by the British on Hindostan [India] is of an essentially different and infinitely more intensive kind than all Hindostan had to suffer before. England has broken down the entire framework of Indian society, without any symptoms of reconstitution yet appearing Marx's ideas have had a profound impact on world politics and intellectual thought. In the political realm, these tendencies include Leninism , Marxism—Leninism , Trotskyism , Maoism , Luxemburgism and libertarian Marxism.
From an academic perspective, Marx's work contributed to the birth of modern sociology. Working in the Hegelian tradition, Marx rejected Comtean sociological positivism in an attempt to develop a science of society. Isaiah Berlin considers Marx the true founder of modern sociology "in so far as anyone can claim the title".
Social theorists of the 20th and 21st centuries have pursued two main strategies in response to Marx. One move has been to reduce it to its analytical core, known as analytical Marxism. Another, more common, move has been to dilute the explanatory claims of Marx's social theory and emphasise the "relative autonomy" of aspects of social and economic life not directly related to Marx's central narrative of interaction between the development of the "forces of production" and the succession of "modes of production".
Karl Marx (1818 - 1883)
Such has been for example the neo-Marxist theorising adopted by historians inspired by Marx's social theory, such as E. Thompson and Eric Hobsbawm. It has also been a line of thinking pursued by thinkers and activists like Antonio Gramsci who have sought to understand the opportunities and the difficulties of transformative political practice, seen in the light of Marxist social theory.
Politically, Marx's legacy is more complex. Throughout the 20th century, revolutions in dozens of countries labelled themselves "Marxist"—most notably the Russian Revolution , which led to the founding of the Soviet Union.

Beyond where Marxist revolutions took place, Marx's ideas have informed political parties worldwide. Marx remains both relevant and controversial. In May , to mark the bicentenary of his birth, a 4. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker defended Marx's memory, saying that today Marx "stands for things which he is not responsible for and which he didn't cause because many of the things he wrote down were redrafted into the opposite".
