1) Engels argues which of the following?
 
In a modern capitalist society, laboring is mostly a source of misery and human suffering


  In a modern capitalist society, work is a source of personal fulfillment


  The immorality of the bourgeoisie is the source of society’s problems.


  Work ought to give pleasure to the worker.

2) Basing himself on the views he elaborated in 1844, were Engels to get into a time machine and come to the US today, he would argue:
 
  Because the class divide still exists, America is not a unified country.


  America is a unified country in which most social layers are committed to their nation and share a common set of values and beliefs.


  The exploitation of workers no longer occurs because living standards have increased.


  America is suffering from too much atheism and not enough religious morality.

3)In a modern capitalist society, workers in the US are free because they have democratic rights (e.g. free speech, freedom of assembly, etc.) the right to work or not work, the ability to work for this employer or that employer, and so forth. According to Engels, this statement is:
 
True, because workers have a lot of personal choice as to how they live their lives.


  False, because if you have to have a wage to survive, you are not truly free, but dependent on the whim of the employer.


  False, because like the bourgeoisie, workers are not free


  True, because workers are not slaves.

I believe the third option only because things have changed for the better in the workforce.

Second option makes the most sense.
