Marx believe that the social production relation in capitalist society appears to be based on freedom and equality when viewed as a relation between individuals, but is in fact a relation based on exploitation and domination when viewed as a relation between the members of distinct social classes? In answering this question, be sure to explain the concepts of labor-power and surplus-value.

Explain Marx’s concept of a general law of capitalist accumulation (N.B. this law is not to be confused with the general formula for capital) and his argument about the historical tendency of capitalist accumulation.

Finally, explain how Marx’s demonstration of the social and historical character of the relation between capitalists and workers in capitalist society parallels Mary Wollstonecraft’s argument about the relation between men and women in modern society.
