The beginning:
Philosophy: Personal Response to Karl Marx’ “On The Jewish Question.”
Karl Marx’ “On The Jewish Question” is a piece of writing about Bruno Bower’s ideas of how Jews should be. Jews should be free in Prussia says Bowers, but they have to give up their Jewish identity. “The most stubborn form of opposition between Jew and Christian is the religious opposition…as soon as Jew and Christian come to see that their respective religions are nothing more than stages in the development of the human mind… they will no longer find themselves in religious opposition” (Marx, date). Full political freedom, according to Bower, requires a state that doesn’t make religion so important. Religion isn’t compatible with the rights that the man has. I think...
The end:

Everyone can have as Marx calls “the rights of man,” it just needs to be enforced in any way possible. This article was very interesting because it used the Jews as an example and was very modern for how old the text was. It touches on many issues America and other countries still have today.
