IN 1845 Marx wrote:

The class which has the means of material production has control at the same time over the means of mental production so that… generally speaking, the ideas of those who lack the means of mental production are subject to it… as they rule as a class and determine the extent and compass of an epoch, it is self-evident that they…regulate the production and distribution of the ideas of their age; Thus their ideas are the ruling ideas of the epoch.
