Major Political Theories

Liberalism, Marxism and Gandhism are the major political theories. Liberalism and Marxism were popular among the people in most parts of the twentieth century.

Liberalism is a political philosophy which advocates the autonomy of individual.

Marxism is a political philosophy of the working class, which advocates equality, social justice, absence of all types of exploitation, a planned economy with employment for each and all.

Gandhism while challenging ideals of both liberalism and Marxism, presents not only a critique of both these ideologies, but also provides relevant alternative theories.
