This idea is shared by many across the political spectrum. There are two ways the rule of law serves to exploit the people: Being an instrument of the ruling classes and cloaking the real power relations in society. Maintenance of the status quo is also a vital “handmaid of exploitation” because a change in the political environment could mean abolition of ideas like private property. AZDAK’S STORY One of the trials that Azdak was given involved an older women. She claimed to have been blessed with gifts from a St. Banditus, however, it is clear to everyone that it was her brother in law Iraklies who committed the thefts.
The poem ‘The Chimney Sweeper’ William Blake displays the dejected urban life of a young chimney sweeper during the coming of the industrial revolution, in order to emphasize the theme of innocence through Marxism and to inform people of the harsh working conditions during the times of child labour promoting political reform. Blake is seen as a Marxist before Marxism as he criticises the government extensively due to their lack of obligated care over those who they serve. A Marxist view can be applied as it is shown that those who are being oppressed are unaware of the appalling nature of their circumstances. A key concept of Marxism is that the working classes are exploited by the ruling classes, but are often aware of this oppression, but are unwilling to do anything. In the poem the exploitation of the working classes in shown by the dire circumstances which they are left in, as in this particular example "my father sold me while my tongue / could scarcely cry 'weep weep weep weep!'".
David Sedaris's Me Talk Pretty One Day revisits his oh, so comical childhood years in a household of six children, including himself, with the combination of a sometimes loudmouthed mother and a father who loves his jazz and his vodka. Me Talk Pretty One Day opens to a story line as if it came straight of a movie: an “agent” knocking a classroom door to pick up a suspected criminal. But after learning that the agent was actually a speech therapist trying to cure young David's lisp, that fear was gone. Along came a series of hilarious stories about the speech therapy classes, or a series of "de-gaying" classes as Sedaris saw them. If you can not tell already, I am more than fond of this book.
