The following essay discusses Karl Marx's "Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy" in which he argued that people will come to the point of seeking revolutionary overthrow of their government when they recognize the ways in which they have been alienated from their own labor. In the second part of the essay the writer contends that this does not seem to have been the predominant philosophical force in the Nicaraguan Revolution.
From the Paper:"If we are to translate this into common English, we see that what Marx is arguing is that the real basis for society is not its culture but its economic structure, or what is more commonly today called the infrastructure. This economic structure includes a number of interdependent but clearly distinguishable parts: the material forces of production which is simply human labor and means of production, and (b) the overall relations of production which are the social and political arrangements that regulate production and distribution (such as copyright and patent law, labor law, labor unions)."
