“Bruce Cohen has written the best book yet linking mental health to the central characteristics of capitalist society. In this fearless, passionate, and beautifully written book, Cohen illuminates the impact of the “psy-professions” on women, youth, the workplace, the criminal justice system, and militarism associated with endless war.

Mental illness is consistently associated with deprivation, low income, unemployment, poor education, poorer physical health and increased health-risk behaviour.’ Some commentators have even suggested that capitalism itself, as a way of being or way of thinking about the world, might be seen as a rather ‘psychopathic’ or pathological system.

Marx thus says that the capitalist extracts surplus value from the worker. To Marx, Profit is basically the accumulated exploitation of workers in capitalist society.

Control of the Economic Base means control of the superstructure According to Marx those who have economic power control all other institutions. Exploitation of labour is the act of using power to systematically extract more value from workers than is given to them. It is a social relationship based on an asymmetry of power between workers and their employers.

When speaking about exploitation, there is a direct affiliation with consumption in social theory and traditionally this would label exploitation as unfairly taking advantage of.

Every Suicide is Murder: Capitalism and Mental Illness. By Comrade Marté. Capitalism, the final epoch of class society, can be described in the simplest terms, as sickening. That is to be taken in the most literal sense, as in, capitalist society renders the masses of people forced to live in it literally ill.

The disease that capitalism forces onto its victims afflicts the most personal, the most human. This book articulates and critically evaluates the Marxist charges against capitalism of exploitation and alienation, and argues that Marx's radical critique of capitalist society presupposes a set of alternative institutions without the defects attributed to by: 8.

It very well may be that capitalist employment relationships may be both coercive and exploitative, but these areindependent moral wrongs. It is certainly my view that wage-labor relationships under capitalism do constitute a morally bad form of coercion. However,this will need to be the topic of a separate essay.

I’M SURE it’s not often that the ideas of Karl Marx are discussed in the prestigious pages of the British Journal of Dermatology, but an article published there in January attempted to throw light not just on Marx’s state of physical health, but also on its supposed consequences for his entire worldview.

According to the paper’s author, a professor of dermatology at the University. Exploitation is a set of social relations on which capitalism is built.

Marx argues that capitalists exploit workers by paying them less in wages than the value they produce. While a worker may earn eight dollars a day in wages, s/he may produce ten dollars a day worth of value, creating what Marx called surplus value which is key for the accumulation of capital.
