Karl Marx theorized about the role of capital and the class relations capitalism produced and the need for their destruction. Even in 1848, it was too late. Finance had found its own mind, and bankers would only have personal control their money for the remainder of the century. Class relations still exist, but it is hard to argue that the upper classes control anything anymore. Like everyone else, they play the games that capital has created, sending money spinning after other money in the hopes of creating more. The military and government play their parts, and the market cycle continues along, crushing anyone who mistakenly gets in the way.
