A Salon with Karl Marx By: Sharaya McCollum-Brown
Do you think that this sudden explosion in the industrial industry will make the wealthier even wealthier and exploit the lower classes?
I think that this will bring out the worst in humanity! I cannot believe the insanity that this has already brought out in people! This will sure be the end of us! We are already tearing down trees and destroying nature in order to make room for these factories that create these horrendous machines! I fear the direction that the world is coming to!
I believe that a societies worth is determined by how they treat others especially weaker ones within the society. If what Lord Bryon says come true than I fear for the lower classes. I also think that we should stop focusing on the wealth of a country on the amount of silver or gold a country has. Instead, I think we should focus more on their ability to produce - imports and exports. I strongly believe in division of labor. I think that if we focus more on the quality of work rather than quanity than the lower class will not be exploited.
