What is Marxism?
Marxism is a socio-economic philosophy or method of analysis. It seeks to explain social movements or transformations in society that are driven by economic conditions affecting social classes. The theory explains that forces of production (such as technology improvements) will obviate (do away with the need for) individuals who do that work. This will cause conflict between the class of individuals who own or control production (bourgeoise) and those who work to actual produce (proletariat) classes.
