Transcript of Karl Marx's views on law and justice

Karl Marx views on justice Karl Marx believed that
every body should contribute as
much as they can in accordance
with thier ability to society and that
because of this everyone would be
entitled to the same for example
pay or benefits Marx also believed that the law was part of something know as the R.S.A (or repressive state apparatus which is used to control the general public and cause them to conform to the needs of the bourgoisie(rich people) Durkhiem would crtitisice this view by saying that the law is not used to
repress society but instead to protect it and also to allow people to function
better at thier roles within society. Aquinus would argue that Marx's view is wrong as well because in his view
individuals who try less than others would still be entitled to the same
rewards as others.which argues with is idea

however using aquinus's logic of natural law it could also be morally just for
everybody to be treated as equel which is the way that Mark's view on society operates. this means that Marx's view sais that the law is not just and can be unreasonable to specific members of society. Meaning that Marx supports the view that the law is directly unjust and so unlinked to justice. Marx's views can be seen mostly in cases where individuals attempt legal action against large companys and will rarely succede. one of Aquinas's most famous quotes is
''do good and avoid evil'' ..... would the idea of
un-fairness and in-equality that Mark's interprets
be seen as doing good and avoiding evil ? Durkhiem would argue that for justice and law to be upheld a social consensus of morals would be crucial whereas Marx says that this doesnt exist as people are exploited indcating a diffrence in morals.
