Ideology is a set of ideas to keep workers in place.
Impose a false picture from the rulling class for the working class to behave.
Class conflict is the most important force in society.
Rulling Class Ideas:
Workers prosuce profit - some into wages - 'surplous value'
If workers notices this they'd revolt
Therefore Ideology promotes false class conciousness and illusion of fairness.
Religion is the opiat of the masses
Ultimate reward/punishment gives the promise of an afterlife - hope
Religion distorts reality to help cope…
