Q376. In the context of Engels, what is a class? What are the main classes under feudalism? Capitalism?
H&H pp. 83ff
A class is a group of people sharing a common relation to the means of production (85). Engels believes in unequal classes. Nearly every society has a minority population which holds power over the majority. Under feudalism, it is the serfs being held down by nobility. In Capitalism, it is the proletariat being controlled by the bourgeoisie.
