Karl Marx

Capital is money, capital is commodities. By virtue of it being value, it has acquired the occult ability to add value to itself. It brings forth living offspring, or, at the least, lays golden eggs.

Karl Marx

Christ represents originally: 1) men before God; 2) God for men; 3) men to man. Similarly, money represents originally, in accordance with the idea of money: 1) private property for private property; 2) society for private property; 3) private property for society. But Christ is alienated God and alienated man. God has value only insofar as he represents Christ, and man has value only insofar as he represents Christ. It is the same with money.

Karl Marx

Let us consider the actual, worldly Jew - not the Sabbath Jew, as Bauer does, but the everyday Jew. ... What is the worldly religion of the Jew? Huckstering. What is his worldly God? Money. Money is the jealous god of Israel, in face of which no other god may exist. Money degrades all the gods of man - and turns them into commodities. The bill of exchange is the real god of the Jew. His god is only an illusory bill of exchange. The chimerical nationality of the Jew is the nationality of the merchant, of the man of money in general.

Karl Marx

We have thus seen that even the most favorable situation for the working class, namely, the most rapid growth of capital, however much it may improve the material life of the worker, does not abolish the antagonism between his interests and the interests of the capitalist. Profit and wages remain as before, in inverse proportion.

Colonial system, public debts, heavy taxes, protection, commercial wars, etc., these offshoots of the period of manufacture swell to gigantic proportions during the period of infancy of large-scale industry. The birth of the latter is celebrated by a vast, Hero-like slaughter of the innocents.

The redeeming feature of war is that it puts a nation to the test. As exposure to the atmosphere reduces all mummies to instant dissolution, so war passes supreme judgment upon social systems that have outlived their vitality.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Karl Marx

Criticism has plucked the imaginary flowers on the chain not in order that man shall continue to bear that chain without fantasy or consolation, but so that he shall throw off the chain and pluck the living flower. The criticism of religion disillusions man, so that he will think, act, and fashion his reality like a man who has discarded his illusions and regained his senses, so that he will move around himself as his own true Sun. Religion is only the illusory Sun which revolves around man as long as he does not revolve around himself.

Karl Marx

Dolaşım aracı miktarının dolaşımdaki metaların fiyatlarının toplamı ve paranın ortalama el değiştirme hızı ile belirlenmesi yasası şöyle de ifade edilebilir: metaların değerlerinin toplamı ve başkalaşımlarının ortalama hızı veri ise, el değiştiren paranın ya da para maddesinin miktarı kendi değerine bağlı olur. Bunun tersinin geçerli olduğu, yani meta fiyatlarının dolaşım araçları miktarı ile ve bunun da bir ülkedeki para maddesinin miktarı ile belirlendiği yanılsaması, bunu ilk benimseyip savunanlar tarafından şu saçma hiptoteze dayandırılmıştı: dolaşım sürecine metalar fiyattan, para ise değerden yoksun olarak girer; fakat sonra, meta yığınının bir kısmı, metal yığınıın bir kısmıyla değiştirilmeye başlar.
