Romantic Anti-Capitalism and Trade Unionism Reviewed

Ely Ould Sneiba [2]

Abstract: The Industrial Revolution and the capitalism that came with it benefited the captains of industry and the bourgeoisie. In both urban and rural areas it brought huge inequalities, painful change and above all misery. Romantics and trade unionists, drawing on the pre-capitalist past, sought to offer an alternative to the spirit of profit and dehumanising materialism in response to rampant capitalism. They share a consciousness constructed around radical change even if they differ on the political spectrum.

Keywords: Capitalism, Romantic anti-capitalism, liberalism, socialism, Marxism, trade unionism, and utopism
