Marxism and Pluralism Theories

The Marxist theory, laid down by Karl Marx, is an ardent follower of a class structure within the state. Marx said that there remained a vast demarcation between the capitalist and the socialist structures of society and in order for the weaker sections to rise. there normatively should be a revolution on part of the working class. The capitalist society exploited the working classes with respect to power and wealth and used labour in order to gain more and more resources and climb the social ladder. They were not concerned about the plight of the working class at all. Thus, all the political power rested within the hands of the capitalists.
The questions however remained, could the working class not rise and abolish the suffering that it was subjected to by the capitalists, overnight? “Certainly, on paper, the working class could do away with the state However, this would be only a formal, juridical act to the extent that the workers had not seized power in a society already so rich and with such an abundance of material goods and services that social conflicts as such, that is, centring on the distribution of these products, could disappear. and that the necessity for arbiters, watchdogs, police, to control all that chaos disappeared at the same time as did the relative scarcity of goods. This has never happened in the past and it is hardly likely that it ever will.” (Mendel, Ernest)
The main reason for Marx’s theory was to establish how power was divided between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have-nots’ of society. how there was a competition for the scarce resources that existed and how the politically powerful capitalists were the ones that had gained access to everything.
