This week we learned about chapter 6 and about the critical approaches such as the pervasiveness of power and the control of modes and means of production. We talked about Karl Marx and about the two working classes. The first working class is Bourgeoisie or in other words elites, upper class and capitalists. The second is proletarian or in other words working class and factory workers. These two working classes help me understand our society and how we view each class or rank in the work force. The key concepts I learned in this chapter are power, power relationships, emancipation and resistance. All of these concepts depicts our society and how power and control play a big role is our capitalists and globalization government. Control plays a big role in our jobs/careers with employees working for a big company with higher ups with power and domination. This also with power relationships between the employer and employee. Many of us have power struggles at work, home, friends, family and even with the world around us. Our society focuses on jobs, money, production, division of labor, and services. It drives our government to have the position of power to control our lives with finances and building a structure that makes us work more and have less free time.
