What is Marxism? A Bird's-Eye View < DIALECTICAL MARXISM: The Writings of Bertell Ollman. What is Marxism? A Bird's-Eye View By Bertell Ollman A young reporter asked a leading capitalist how he made his fortune. "It was really quite simple", the capitalist answered. Karl Marx sought the answers to these questions by trying to understand how our capitalist society works (for whom it works better, for whom worse), how it arose out of feudalism and where it is likely to lead.

The main theories that make up this analysis—the theory of alienation, the labor theory of value, and the materialist conception of history—must all be understood with this focus in mind. Some socialist ideas can be traced as far back as the Bible, but Marxism has its main intellectual origins in German philosophy, English political economy, and French utopian socialism. *A shortened version of this essay appeared in the Academic American Encyclopedia (Arete" Publishing Company, Princeton, NJ., 1981), and was republished in Monthly Review (New York, April, 1981).

The Russian Revolution is one of the most important events of the twentieth century. In February 1917, Tsar Nicholas II abdicated, and a representative Provisional Government succeeded the autocracy.

In October, the Bolsheviks, led by Vladimir Lenin, overthrew the Provisional Government. They would go on to establish the world's first socialist state and attempt to spread socialist revolution around the world. In so doing, they issued a strong ideological challenge to the capitalist world. During the 1930s, the Soviet Union industrialized and advertised full employment and prosperity, while the capitalist world was mired in the Great Depression. For much of the post-World War II period, the majority of people on the planet lived in a state that identified itself as either capitalist or socialist. Why study propaganda posters?
