Karl’s works revolves around politics, economics and society. He is constructed as one of the most prolific social thinkers of the 19th century and his work has great influence on social evolution.
He believed that the evolution of the society is driven by class conflicts, which manifests itself in the struggle between the ruling class that control the means of production and the working class that enabled those means by selling their labour for wages.
Marx contemplated that capitalism is fueled by contradiction and combustion, which will inevitably self-destroy and replaced by a socialist system.
In his view, class antagonism under the capitalism will make the galvanization of the working class into an organized militant group for conquest of political power.
By say this, he was ultimately pressing for a revolution of the working class for social economic emancipation.
Today, Marx is both canonized and demonized at the same time because his advocacy is the foundation of trade unionism.
However, in the capitalist world many of his concerns have been addressed through monetary and fiscal policies.
