Karl Marx wrote many works throughout his time but one of the works of his youth was called On Man and History This work by Marx was written when he was a youth and was influenced by the Industrial Revolution and the works of Hegel philosophy There are two sections in this document one is the Alienated Man and the other is History The first section by Marx talks about how man is alienated by the process of labor and the product that is made out of the labor Marx says that the process of labor is an alienation because man does not do work for their own pleasure and the labor is not part of the nature of man but the labor is forced upon man to gain other satisfaction such as entertainment money and food In addition Marx states that the work done by a person is not for him or herself but for consumers or it belongs to a man other than the worker The other part in this section is the relationship between man and the products they produce Each commodity product produced by the worker devalues themselves even more every time the worker produces it and when the commodity increases in price This happens because the worker uses their own energy to produce the product thus losing the inner self and inner life Marx also says this about religion when man attributes to god the less they have of themselves According to Marx the reason for these alienation of man is because of Capitalism related to private property In the second section Marx states that throughout history the ruling ideas are always the ruling society ruling class and ruling intellectual force The reason that ruling classes rules over intelligence according to Marx is because that class has the material means to be dominant He gives the examples of when the bourgeoisie was the ruling class freedom and equality would dominant
