Marx was only incidentally talking of politics
his main contribution was the oldest and biggest question in economics.... the transformation of "value" into "price"
the main result being "profit" as a motor of the economic activity
he wrote in German , a particularly involved language with many nuances this include five different concept of "price"
for profit to rise above the average can only be done by decreasing the "labor reward" in the value
because the price is out of the control of the producer , it is determined by the market
That's simply not true. A majority of Marx's earlier works were discussions of humanities & politics. It is only the later stages of Marx that are fully economical and it's really the economics that most people read when talking about Marx. His earlier humanities work wasn't really read/published compared to things like Das Kapital.
