Political Philosophies When We Talk Essay

Excerpt from Essay :



Marx further included that finally the biased behavior of the working class will end this dictatorship period, and a class less society will establish. He believed that for the formation of this society people need to launch an organized movement against the dictatorship and only a successful revolution would lead to the formation of society of "Communism" (Skoble, 2007).

When we talk about the political philosophy, we can observe that both John Locke and Karl Marx are in favor of the idea that when there is a need of change then an organized revolution is compulsory. People cannot get their rights until they demand for it because it's natural thing that you need to raise your voice in order to get your right otherwise other will keep it as their own possession.

The point of differ come when we talk about the scenario in which both of them forwarded their theories. Karl Marx of 18th century leaded the Russian revolution and strength in his approach came by the then unjust situation in Russia. On the other hand, Locke of 16th century gave basis for the American revolutionaries and focused on the involvement of church within the governmental issues.

In this whole process, Marx has placed greater importance to the role of people to formulate an organized revolution. He believed that a href='https://www.paperdue.com/topic/social-change-essays' rel="follow">social change could only come when people gather against its supremacy. Therefore, it is the duty of the unprivileged people to raise their voice against the unfair treatment and obtain their rights through a systematic movement (Riemer & Simon, 1997).

As far as Marx philosophy is concerned, in his work he appealed for a society where every man can get the right to lead his life according to his own will. He proposed the theory as the inevitable fate of people. As he believed that people could not tolerate this biasness after a certain limit so the revolution is must. The major focuses to bring a change were revolution and class struggle. Marx belief to build a communist society were people could lead a life of their own will was nothing but a daydream. His imagination for such a utopian society was impossible to be established because it is the rule of the nature that a few will rule and the rest will follow. A kingdom without its king or a society without its leader is an irrational thinking. Although his theory provided great inspiration to the working class but it can only give them an unfulfilled hope for a better future (Riemer & Simon, 1997).
