Capitalism From A Marxist Perspective

The trouble with explaining capitalism from a Marxist perspective is the way it attributes perverse motives to capitalists – it doesn't happen like that, they don't do it to be perverse, it's a result of the system, which makes perverse actions the norm and so accepted. The capitalist system incentivises perversity, incentivises harm. What I mean is that it is not the fault of the people, it is the fault of the system, we should be careful to make this distinction.
