Marx states the main key points that make up the idea of living in a capitalist society. He describes this society in various ways. It is when goods are produced for the market, which can be exchanged for money. Capitalists who own factories made up of machines to produce not only goods but profit as well. Marx describes capitalism as a profit driven system. Workers who work in these factories work for wages and become wage workers.
Marx makes it evident that he is not in favor of a capitalist society. He describes the society as inherently exploitative. The wage workers produce and sell their owners’ products, while the owners take the profit for themselves watching their workers slave at below par levels. The profits become so desirable, that the amount of profit making schemes increase. Marx portrays the idea that capitalism only creates unfair profit for the business owners, and leaves little to no profit for the wage workers.
