Marx’s theory of Alienation is surprisingly common when looking into our social structure in the U.S. Being a capitalist country, we developed a mode of production that deprives humans of being “human”. Workers are basically drones, gears in a grand industrial clock, where they are emotionless and have only one output which is labor. What is the point of constantly grinding out work, the same thing day in and day out, if you can’t enjoy life. It’s unfortunate that this net, that is alienation, has caught so many people and exploited them. However, as seen in history many times over, revolution seems to cure, even if only for a short time, the proletariat’s epidemic. I would assume that in order to achieve a “fresh start” that overcoming bureaucracy would be necessary and as time passes it seems more and more difficult. Alienation of the worker is spreading and it looks as if we are drifting further away from humanism.
