Today in the class of Social Sciences, Paqui has started the class writing the scheme about Marxism on the blackboard to explain it afterwards.
I have suggested Paqui a delay about the day of the deadline of the work which we have to give on Monday, she definitely has said no because we have had a lot of time to prepare it, and I understand her.. So, Paqui has started to explain the main ideas about Marxism:
- Class struggle --> between bourgeois and workers in the 19th.
- Proletariat revolution as a consequence of the working conditions in capitalism. The revolution would have two stages: Dictatorship of the proletariat and communist society.
- Need for workers' organization --> many workers' parties and unions were created. The impoverisment of workers would make the revolution inevitable.
- Surplus value --> profit the workers produce, but don't enjoy.
- Workers' alienation
After this we have talked about anarchism and freedom and we have given our opinion of freedom and if we think that we are free. I think that we are free between quotation marks because you can choose some things but after you will do what someone says. I don't know how to explain this. But to sum it up, we aren't free (in my opinion). So, anarchism wants to make people recover freedom. Anarchism is a political ideology which means "without government" (not chaos).
Today's class has been so interesting for me, these are important themes. And as Paqui has said, we have to think about it.
See you on Monday classmates, don't forget your works!!
