How does Marx summarize the counterparts in the underlined sentence of this paragraph?

The underlined sentence is "Freeman and slave, bourgeois and [working-class], lord and serf, guild-master and journeyman."

Marx summarizes the pairs as opposites. The Freeman is not a slave, the bourgeois do not work, the lord is master over the serf, and the guild-master works for himself, whereas, the journeyman depends upon others.
