Mode of Exploitation
The Mode of Exploitation is the manner in which the Ruling Class goes about exploiting subordinate classes and accumulating Surplus Labour. According to (Ruyle, 1975, pp. 11-12)any specific Mode of Exploitation consists of three interrelated factors; these factors include
- Exploitative Techniques (i.e. the mechanisms through which economic surplus is extracted, what we might also call a Regime of Accumulation),
- Mechanisms of Force (like the police and the army who are called in to ensure regimes of extraction continue by physically coercing the population if necessary), and
- Ideological Institutions (what I would call Ideological Apparatus) like the church, Hollywood, and the family tasked with controlling the minds of the exploited populations.
According to Ruyle (1975: pp. 11-12) “These elements of the exploitative system may be institutionalized separately, as in industrial societies such as the United States and the Soviet Union, or they may be integrated into a single unitary institution, as in the early Bronze Age. The precise ensemble of exploitative techniques, together with the manner in which state-church elements are institutionalized, constitutes a historical mode of exploitation.”
