The common theory if mark states each and every conition and actions occured in the history have created conflict between classes and the history is improved due to the class conflicts. And through the Mark’s view of point, the classes between employee an employee are only considerable as classes , whereas the classes by religion, nation and race arent counted as he believed that they are un-natural and useless to humans.
The Class System in Titanic
Titanic movie is a suitable movie to consider the view of Marx, As the Titanic passenger was divided according to the class. As its divided into lower-class passaneger under the deck and upper-class passnegers. It more over divides the life style and thinking of the peoples in different classes. The Upper class passengers live in a life full of boring rules, Formalities with cheap back talk of peoples whereas Third-Class passnegers enjoys their life to the fullest while they can with no worries.
Rose’s mother was only concerned with her daughter weiding with a rich guy to maintain their depreciating family to main family wealth. Where as Rose’s fiance gives a huge diamond ring to interest her mind as he loves her ‘outer beauty’ the only reason to marry her. This eventually shows how foolish the high-class people are.
As the ship collides with the Iceberg, the crew threatens low class passengers with guns and the priority to the righful boarding of life boats goes to the upper-class passengers. The captain, the person having the adminsrative duty had no confidence on himself after the breaking of the ship having plenty of commanding earlier dies later without resolves. As he dies in stering room, his role is shown as a metaphor.
