Karl Marx was a philosopher who inspired the Russian Revolution with his philosophy of Marxism. Marx disliked that the proletarian class worked hard for little pay while the bourgeoise class such as property owners worked less for a much greater salary. Karl Marx wanted communism where everyone could be an equal economic class. This idea influenced many people especially the proletarians. Even though, Karl Marx had great ideas, he died before they could come to realistic action, resulting in Lenin taking over.
Karl Marx helped develop, and build theories for capitalism, socialism, and historical change. His works inspired many communists in the 20th century, and he also inspired many parts of the Russian Revolution. His goal was to help promote justice and equality for the lower.
