Marx thought social class drove revolutions. The bourgeoisie used their power to create new technologies and advancements, forcing rapid and constant change to be a present factor in societies. After debating whether or not Marx’s ideas were relevant today, they proved to be very on target in the modern world. Apple is a leading technological company which creates new products that people do not need, but want. The new additions to each of their already new products forces people to purchase and want the newest edition. For example, the iPhone 4s came out in October of 2011, and the iPhone 5 in September of 2012. Not even a year was passed when a leading company thought it was time to produce a new product. This idea is similar to the one that Marx believed in; the creation of new wants. The people seem to be satisfied with the new invention, (the 4s in this case), but as soon as the 5 is released the satisfaction is gone until the newest edition is purchased. There is a constant change in society’s technological advancements in the modern world, just as Marx thought. Another concept he believed in was globalization. Modern popular culture has similar trends in many different countries in the world. Songs, movies, and books are all influenced off of different countries. For example, the top 10 songs of 2012 in America, have at least three of the same songs in Canada and also the UK. These songs also all became popular in America, showing how globalization spreads through the world in modern times, just as the ideas of literature and trade spread in Marx’s time. Marx’s ideas of capitalism are present even in today’s world.
