      Karl Marx (1818-1883) Click on this image to find a short stand up act from George Carlin that works well to begin a discussion on Marx's concept of ideology, or as he put it, that "the ideas of the ruling class are in every epoch the ruling ideas."

Carlin is expressing this idea when he notes that "it's called the American Dream because you have to be asleep to believe it"
