  1. The only problem there seems to be is tht for some reason since the Cold War capitalism can’t seem to co exist with communism🤣🤣

  2. Seriously? Everything should be owned by the state?
    There will be equality in wealth you say, doesn't matter how hard you work(duh) but what about power disparity?

    At least money is earned throw hardwork(~84%) and power you can get for free. How is that fair?

    1) What about the risk an entrepreneur takes? What about the extra effort he/she takes to plan it, think about it, sacrifice money, time, relationships and all to work hard? Who provides the workers opportunity in the first place to do things?

    2) Modern work is insecure?What?
    You lose your job in one company, you get another(if you worked hard in life). Your company becomes bankrupt. Nobody's gonna offer you a new company. You have to do it all by yourself, all over again.

    3) Obviously. It takes a lot of work, out of the box thinking, pain, fighting with family to take such a risk, leave spending time with family and loved ones. you ignore the hard work(and smart work) one has done to become who he/she is

    If I buy a piece of land, plant the seeds, water it daily, take care of it, nurture it, spend a lot of time commitment to make the tree what it is, and now I employ you, work which is not as hard or significant, and you deserve equal number of it's fruits as I do? How is that fair?

    4) Not everyone deserves it. Those who work hard earn more. Those who work less earn less. You don't want to work and want freedom and you deserve equal money?

    5) Marriage is not important in life.
    Doing good for everyone in a way hard workers get they deserve.

    Everyone deserves equal opportunity. What you do with that opportunity is your decision.

    It will destroy society because hard work is not valued. I guess history is enough.

    Engel himself inherited all that money lol.

  3. Communism brought a lot of evil to the world and no question that capitalism is the method that won and we can see the results all over the world

  4. What the fuck is this? You say Heaven isn't realistic while a utopia under Communism is? At least you explained that Communism/Socialism have created terrible, violent dictatorships, but you forgot to mention that NOT A SINGLE Communist country has invented anything to contribute to society, been anything other than a poor dictatorship under violent leaders, or had worked near as well as capitalism has without any sort of capitalist intervention like we see in China, Norway, etc.,. Capitalism isn't perfect, but Communism and Socialism are a hell of a lot worse

  5. Primitive accumulation of capital refers to a historical shock that renders much of the population impoverished and without property, and therefore lays the foundations for future capitalist development by providing an ample supply of cheap labor for decades to come. Marx himself gives the example of the "enclosures" in England, when former peasants were forced off their land and were rendered a property-less proletariat. Wars (by producing property-less refugees) colonialism (by opening up entire countries & continents to market forces) and economic depressions all serve to create "primitive accumulation" to one degree or the other.

  6. Capitalism works when the employers live in the same community as employers. You have a harder time being greedy and treating people badly when you have to live with them. You need morals. If not for capitalism none of our poor families would not have risen to where they are.

  7. Marx's debts covered by a wealthy man? That is what Marxism is, until the wealthy man is broke. The Marxism fails and turns into a ruthless dictatorship.

  8. Is Marx's labor value theory really wrong?
    In my view, it is not. Only the classical interpretation of this theory is. With a new interpretation of the labor theory of value all value creations can be explained.
    According to the classical interpretation of the labor value theory, the value in production should be created together with the goods. Marx has created a formula for this: W = c + v + m. The parameters mean
    W – labor value
    c – constant capital (buildings, machinery, supplies, raw materials, communication …), costs proportionately allocated to the potential goods
    v – variable capital, the value of the parties involved in the production and supply of goods, also costs proportionately allocated to the potential goods
    m – the surplus value; According to Marx, the workers are paid according to their values. The wage is so low compared to the profit on the sale of goods that it seems that the entrepreneur only pays part of the working time of the workforce. For the remainder of the working time, he does not pay the workers, but puts this money in his own pocket – that's the surplus value.

    But the reality is different from this Marxian representation: The added value m does not exist on the production side of the commodity society. The customer pays the added value in the market, but not by adding some money to the production costs c and v. Added value only comes about when the buyer replaces c and v and additionally pays even more.

    On the production side of the commodity society, there is neither real added value nor real value, but only an expected surplus value and consequently only an expected value, amongst other things because the added value is part of the value:
    W|expects = c|cost factor; Replacement expected + v|cost factor; Replacement expected + m|expected.

    The real value is only formed in the market:
    W|real = c|replacing + v|replacing + m|real. Usually the buyer replaces the costs c and v when buying the goods and pays a little more. Consequently, the labor value, or the value for short, is first formed in the market. The preconditions for value relationships are usually created before the value relationships, e.g. with the production of technical equipment.

    Every entrepreneur can control each individual value formation, which should be realized in relation to his goods, individually according to his wishes. Usually, however, if the production has to be reproduced, he has to consider the context of W | real = c | replacing + replacing + m | real and follow it.
    The prerequisites for value relationships are created by means of human labor, by means of machines and by nature.

    The basis of value relationships are quality improvement processes compared to the initial states of these processes. However, the values can not be derived directly from the quality-enhancement processes, because human consciousness processes also affect value formation. Value is a social relationship. Such people form one another, the labor values will be formed by buyers and sellers together. Goods and value equivalents are reference points of such a relationship.

    Value in the economic sense is assigned: the value of each worker, the value of the goods, the value of the money. This assignment is always based on circumstances, but is also influenced by the consciousness processes of the exchange partners. In some cases the value is developed in the dialogue (e.g. at the bazaar), in other cases by a one-sided adaptation of the buyer to the ideas of the seller (e.g. in the department store).

    If the value is perceived as a real social relationship, then all processes of value formation can be explained.

    I explained these thoughts in more detail, also with pictures. Unfortunately initially only in German:

    (What is wrong with the labor theory of value – How tzhe valuer will be created in reality)
    "Mit Marx zur Marktwirtschaft?", Wissenschaftsverlag Tectum, 2017
    (With Marx to the market economy?)

  9. One of the most beautiful summaries of Marx's political theory made by a PRO-CAPITALIST institution, can you see that it is possible?

  10. although Marx's ideology is very ideal in some sense ,they are best for a society where people not only care for self interest but for social interest. while its good but rather not more than just a dream , his ideas in todays sense is like a cure ,a medicine we can't use.

  11. It sounds great doesn’t. That while some work others live in leisure. But why should I work so that others can play??

  12. So many problems with your understanding of capitalism and Marxist communism. Your biggest problem is you think of capitalist as only the people at the top of the companies or businesses. That is your biggest mistake. Because in a capitalist society every individual is a capitalist including what you call the workers. Because at any given moment any one of the workers can come up with an idea of their own build their own company around that idea and become what you call the capitalists which are no more than the owners of the company or the owners of an idea that generates money for themselves. The difference between that and communism is the people in charge of a communist Marxist society will always be in charge and will always have the power over the rest of the population. Because even if a lowly worker in a communist society comes up with a billion-dollar idea there is no way for him to earn money off of that idea because that idea doesn’t belong to him it belongs to the society therefore only the people in charge in the government of that society will benefit off the billion-dollar idea. And that is truly evil.

  13. 2:20. Hello miss. May we please take a photograph of you with this very expensive camera while you are working and starving due to famine. Oh by the way your entire family was sent to the gulags

  14. He thought we should abolish private property. People should not be allowed to own things. At certain moments one can sympathise. But it’s like wanting to ban gossip or forbid watching television.

  15. The result of Karl's theory was tested in China under Mao of China, under Stalin of Russia, under Castro of Cuba, under Chavez of Venezuela, n most importantly under Kim Il-sung of North Korea, n so many countries. I will describe these countries with one word. HELL!

  16. I think it is disingenuous to leave out the fact that Marx was INSANE … one of the bourgeoisie who never worked a hard day in his life, lived off of his factory owning friends but thought he could dictate how the proletariat should live their lives … his ideology is completely anti-human and clashes with all the innate psychological drives of humanity

  17. He was just a fool who thought himself smart. He didn't relise how evil his ideas could be and so many innocents died because of it.

  18. 1:23 I.Modern work is alienated
    2:27 II. Modern work is insecure
    3:01 III. Workers get paid little while capitalists get rich
    3:52 IV. Capitalism is very unstable
    5:18 V. Capitalism is bad for capitalists

  19. Somewhere around 00:50 you state that Marx joined the Communist Party. This may confuse many people, because everybody thinks Marx founded and coined Communism. So, it won't be a bad idea to have a brief elaboration about Communist League and Karl Schapper.
