Capitalism
Capitalism
Capitalism
is an economic system based upon private ownership of the means of production and their operation for profit.[1][2][3] Characteristics central to capitalism include private property, capital accumulation, wage labor, voluntary exchange, a price system, and competitive markets.[4][5] In a capitalist market economy, decision-making and investment are determined by every owner of wealth, property or production ability in financial and capital markets, whereas prices and the distribution of goods and services are mainly determined by competition in goods and services markets.[6][7] Economists, political economists, sociologists and historians have adopted different perspectives in their analyses of capitalism and have recognized various forms of it in practice. These include laissez-faire or free market capitalism, welfare capitalism and state capitalism

Exploitation Of Labour
Exploitation of labour
Exploitation of labour
is the act of treating one's workers unfairly for one's own benefit. It is a social relationship based on a fundamental asymmetry in a power relationship between workers and their employers.[1] When speaking about exploitation, there is a direct affiliation with consumption in social theory and traditionally this would label exploitation as unfairly taking advantage of another person because of his or her inferior position, giving the exploiter the power. Karl Marx, who is considered the most classical and influential theorist of exploitation, did not share the same traditional account of exploitation. Marx's theory explicitly rejects the moral framing characteristic of the notion of exploitation and restricts the concept to the field of labour relations

Islamophobia
Islamophobia
Islamophobia
is an intense fear or hatred of, or prejudice against, the Islamic religion or Muslims,[1][2][3] especially when seen as a geopolitical force or the source of terrorism.[4][5][6] The term was first used in the early 20th century and it emerged as a neologism in the 1970s, then it became increasingly salient during the 1980s and 1990s, and it reached public policy prominence with the report by the Runnymede Trust's Commission on British Muslims and Islamophobia
Islamophobia
(CBMI) entitled Islamophobia: A Challenge for Us All (1997). The introduction of the term was justified by the report's assessment that "anti- Muslim
Muslim
prejudice has grown so considerably and so rapidly in recent years that a new item in the vocabulary is needed".[7] The causes and characteristics of Islamophobia
