Abstract

According to Marx, capitalism leads to the alienation of people from their work, from the product of their work, and from other people Oilman, 19761334. These characteristics of capitalism were obvious for all to see in the late nineteenth century, as capital and labor were increasingly polarized. But in the late twentieth century, class relations have become considerably more complicated. The emergence and growth of various forms of middle class Walker, 1979 Wright, 1985 make the issue of who is exploiting whom, of who benefits from the alienation of workers, unclear. In turn, the confusion in class relations has an effect on the ability to wage class struggle, as the enemy of the working class is difficult to define, let alone target.
