Marcuse gained much popularity with students during the ’s due the Vietnam War and draft, speaking at protests and writing books that swayed popular opinion. He became “The Father of the New Left” in the United States.

    Marx saw that what is of cardinal importance is not the personal behaviour of the individual but the struggle between social forces, not personal morality but the fight to establish the good society. And in that struggle, the language of moralism was all too often the language used by the ruling class in order to constrain those who opposed it. Lukes’s Marxism and Morality.1 A similarly negative verdict is delivered on the book’s subsidiary concern: the record of Marxism as a practice and the arguments adduced in support of that practice. Here, too, Lukes finds the Marxist position deeply flawed, indeed vitiated by .

    It is obvious that the theory of social justice I am here putting forward is not a specifically Marxist moral theory. This should not be surprising. Not even Marx's implicit moral theory per se is a specifically Marxist theory. There is, in fact, no such thing as a specifically Marxist moral theory. There is, however, such a thing as a specifically.

The main focus of the chapter is Marx‘s The German Ideology, but other quotes bearing on his view of justice are also mobilized.
