Saturday, 9 July 2022 — theplanningmotivedotcom

“In the social production of their existence, men inevitably enter into definite relations, which are independent of their will, namely, relations of production appropriate to a given stage in the development of material forces of production. The totality of these relations of production constitutes the economic structure of society, the real foundation, on which arises a legal and political superstructure and to which correspond definite forms of social consciousness.” – (Marx)

Academics may reject this base/superstructure model, but politicians do so at their peril, as Johnson and Biden have found out.
