Main Article Content

Shakhobjon Kubatov


This article examines the ideas of Karl Marx about the political elite and their influence on the development of political thought and theory. Marx argued that political power is controlled by small groups of people who use their resources and wealth to protect their interests. This theory became the basis for the development of many other theories, such as elitism and pluralism. The article also discusses the influence of Marx's ideas on understanding the problem of democracy and its limitations, as well as on understanding the social and political dynamics in society.
