Karl Marx was a German philosopher, economist and historian. He lived for most of his life in England and collaborated with German thinker Friedrich Engels. His most famous works are The Communist Manifesto and Das Kapital. He argues that the process of historical materialism will culminate in socialism as the most efficient way of ordering society for the production of goods necessary for survival. He viewed religion as 'the opium of the people' and 'the sigh of the oppressed creature...heart of a heartless world...soul of soulless conditions.'
