Use this as an opportunity to show what you know about Marx and Engels (you might mention the dominant ideology thesis and what Marx called religion), but mostly Engels. What did he write in the excerpt on the origins of the state that suggest this sort of duping. Remember his comments about universal suffrage and corporate power and democratic institutions.
The classes in power are able to manipulate and subdue those who are uneducated or too poor to change their circumstances. They do this by using education, media and religion (among other institutions) to maintain their control.
Broadcast media has depicted victims of police brutality as deserving of their treatment by dehumanizing and criminalizing their character.
In education, children of immigrant families are usually sent to schools that are underfunded and segregated. This keeps them from advancing in society, therefore staying in a disadvantaged state. Those who hold power want to keep them in these lower classes so they maintain their power.
Do you manage to say something about Marx and Engels? When?
Drop a line on dominant ideology or religion? False consciousness?
What do we mean here by being "duped"?
What was it that Engels said about universal suffrage? Why did he suggest that there was some false consciousness involved?
What's the connection between what Engels said and contemporary US election finance law?
