Karl Marx on Class Conflict - Dictionary of Arguments
Höffe I 366
Class Conflict/Marx/Höffe: (...) [Marx] asserts an uninterrupted conflict, "which ended each time with a revolutionary transformation of the whole society. For its own time, it is the conflict of two classes, the main economic bourgeois called "bourgeois," the capitalists, and the wage laborers called "proletarians". This contemporary struggle is supposed to be the last one in world history, since the existing opposition is not replaced by a new opposition. The victory of the wage laborers over the capitalists is meant to overcome all (...) class barriers, thus bringing unity, harmony and peace to the world.
