A Treatise on the Capitalist Society: Critiquing Marx’s Economic and Political Theory

This book explains the formation and evolution of the capitalist society from the perspective of language and media. It argues that linguistic presentations given by using language serve as a basis for humans to define private property rights, engage in market exchange, establish the wage labor system, exploit science and technology in production, and organize socialized production. It clarifies the reason for the distinction between the rich and the poor in a capitalist society, arguing against Marx’s theory of surplus value, and asserts that the wage labor system is a cooperative system. It also discusses the relations of social classes and the relations between democracy and dictatorship, as well as the origin of the state from the perspective of language and media. The book will help its readership to deepen their understanding of capitalism.
