    Basic Marx: The Working Class and the Capitalist Class


    The following is no more than a basic introduction to how a personís class is determined and the wider implications of this economic and social arrangement. Marx analysed capitalism in great depth, so the 10 points below are intended as merely generalised starting points. If you find yourself in agreement with these 10 points then you are a Marxist even if you didnít realise this previously.

    Where is the ďMiddle ClassĒ?

    For Marxists, class is defined by a personís relationship to the means of wealth creation, whether through production, the only real source of new value, or, through the dominance of finance capitalism, the money markets.

    The Middle Class today is a phantasm: when it had real meaning it referred to the emerging capitalist class as it was situated in the middle between the Upper Class, the landowning aristocracy, and the Lower Class, the rural and urban workers. Eventually, of course, the Middle Class, the capitalists, became the dominant class in society, the present Ruling Class.

    The concept of a Middle Class survives because it is useful to the Ruling Class, dividing the Working Class against itself. Political pronouncements about the Middle Class dominating education, for example, has been used to break up the education system into academies competing along market lines. Thus capitalism is blatantly entrenched in the schools.

    If a personís principle means of livelihood depends on selling labour power then he or she is a worker. It matters not whether that remuneration is called a wage or a salary or comes in the form of benefits, or is paid weekly or monthly.

    This does not mean every member of the working class lives virtually an identical life to all other workers. The working class is stratified according to economic, cultural and social factors, just as the capitalist class has its millionaires, billionaires and trillionaires.

    It isnít the size of the personal wealth that defines them as capitalists, it is their relation to capital; they own it.

    The Great Breakthrough - Soviet Planning versus Capitalism

    CPBML Public Meeting, Wednesday 25 November, 7.30pm

    Brockway Room, Conway Hall, Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL

    Capitalism is wedded to the anarchy of the market. Socialism is about planning to meet the needs of people and nations Ė and in the past it has been spectacularly successful. Come and discuss how a planned approach can help rebuild Britain. All welcome.

    As for Jeremy Corbyn, he will either compromise to the point where he is totally compromised or the political assassins, probably from his own side of the House, will dispatch him. Either way, the British working class will not have advanced one iota by his election.

    EU referendum: first moves

    13 SEPTEMBER 2015

    A referendum on Britainís membership of the EU will happen within the next couple of years. It was promised in the Conservative election manifesto and Prime Minster Cameron has said it will take place by the end of 2017. The Labour Party initially said it would oppose a referendum unless there were plans for the EU to return powers to Britain. Now it has dropped that stance.

    EU migration shambles and the drive to war

    9 SEPTEMBER 2015

    What’s behind the misnamed “migrant crisis” and what does it say about the European Union? This is not something new. We have to look at how it started to understand what’s going on and what British workers should do.

    Capitalism is waging war against workers worldwide to wreck countries and uproot their peoples. The NATO powers, especially Britain and the USA, instigated the “Arab spring” risings across the Middle East and North Africa. The NATO powers attacked Iraq and Libya as well as fuelling the war in Syria. The EU has backed all NATO’s wars of aggression. That’s the main reason for the huge number of migrants on the move.
