Revealing Marx In Karl Marxs early writing on estranged labour there is a clear and prevailing focus on the plight of the labourer Marxs writing on estranged labour is and attempt to draw a stark distinction between property owners and workers In the writing Marx argues that the worker becomes estranged from his labour because he is not the recipient of the product he creates As a result labour is objectified that is labour becomes the object of mans existence As labour is objectified man becomes disillusioned and enslaved Marx argues that man becomes to be viewed as a commodity worth only the labour he creates and man is further reduced to a subsisting animal void of any capacity of freedom except the will to labour For Marx this all leads to the emergence of private property the enemy of the proletariat In fact Marxs writing on estranged labour is a repudiation of private property- a warning of how private property enslaves the worker This writing on estranged labour is an obvious point of basis for Marxs Communist Manifesto The purpose of this paper is to view Marxs concept of alienation estranged labour and how it limits freedom For Marx mans freedom is relinquished or in fact wrested from his true nature once he becomes a labourer This process is thoroughly explained throughout Estranged Labour This study will reveal this process and argue its validity Appendant to this study on alienation there will be a micro-study which will attempt to ascertain Marxs view of freedom ie positive or negative The study on alienation in conjunction with the micro-study on Marxs view of freedom will help not only reveal why Marx feels labour limits mans freedom but it will also identify exactly what kind of freedom is being limited Estranged Labour Karl Marx identifies estranged labour as labour alien to man Marx explains the condition of estranged labour as the result of man
