Domestic system -- system whereby work was done in the home by independent laborers.
Example -- wool bought from sheep farmers and given to women working at home. The women would spin it into yarn. The yarn would be taken by the merchant to a weaver (working at his home) who would then weave cloth.
Why Did Industrialization Begin in England First?
history was the story of a constant struggle between the classes
Marx saw no difference between French workers, German workers and British workers -- runs counter to nationalism
Governmental systems were created to serve whatever class was in power – revolutions brought down the old systems
Absolutism -- Aristocracy -- French Revolution brought it down
Capitalism -- Bourgeoisie
Socialism -- Proletariat
Communism -- everyone equal
Marx saw a series of revolutions as part of the natural order of things. Europe, according to his model, was perched on the edge of another revolution, one that would bring Socialism and the workers to power.
Eventually, socialism would EVOLVE into communism where everyone was equal
Under communism -- no private property -- no government -- no class distinctions (has never been achieved)
