Concerning Rakesh's comments:

It might be useful to consider the underlying dialectics of necessity &
freedom and needs & wants. I believe, from memory, that sections of the
_Grundrisse_ speak to these issues.

One has to avoid, IMO, a too literal reading of Marx. One has to consider
such factors as how his thought developed over time, his revolutionary
politics, and the fragmentary nature of some of his writings. Also, we
not only should read Marx, we need to review his writings critically.
