Serving as the foundation for Marx's indictment of capitalism is his extraordinary work titled Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts, written in 1844 but published nearly a century later. Here Marx offers his theory of human nature and an analysis of emerging capitalism's degenerative impact on man's sense of self and his creative potential. What is man's true nature? How did capitalism gain such a foothold on Western society? What is alienation and how does it threaten to undermine the proletariat?
These and other vital questions are addressed as the youthful Marx sets forth his first detailed assessment of the human condition.
At a time when much turmoil exists over politics, ethics, equality, and economics, where many accuse existing administrations of socialism, not based on knowledge of the subject but rather fear of it, it is time that everyone take time to understand the true message of Marx. Marx's philosophy and theory is not about government control or communist tyranny, but rather about politics, ethics, equality, and economics by the people and for the people, a society truly democratic politically, morally, economically, and culturally.
