About Current Affairs
Marx has also tried to establish that the state is wheel of oppression of the poor and that it has
become a rotten institution. Mere a blow from the workers will collapse it. But again it has not
come true. Everywhere need and necessity of the state is being realized. It is now felt that the
state is not a necessary evil, but an absolute necessity. Every society is assigning more and more
functions to the state. It is today performing not compulsory but also optional functions and more
responsibilities About current Affairs.
Marx has said that the workers have no mother land or father land and as such they should rise
above such concepts. Their miseries all over are the same. But again that has not worked. The
workers everywhere are showing loyalties to their own country. They have not given up the idea
of father land or mother land. They have always stood by the side of their government, at the
time of difficulty and are trying to solve their problems at the national level.
Then Marx has tried to establish that the problems of the workers are such that these will not be
solved by peaceful methods and for that forces will be unavoidable. But again that has not come

together. If the former use violence, the latte cannot lag behind. If the workers can develop class
consciousness, the capitalists too can do with still great vigor. The capitalists will use all means
and methods to retain all powers with themselves. Not only this, but they will try to bring
disunity among the workers as well. But in spite of all the drawbacks of his philosophy it cannot
be denied that Marx brought a new life and vigor in the workers' movement. He awakened them
and today his philosophy is the basis of labor movement all over the world.
