It is exctly this kind of byzantine discussion what has converted marxism in
a new scholasticism.
Nestor didn't say only what this purist critiquer states here. He has been
writing to the list about every kind of political, economic and
philosophical questions and in none case it has seemed that he has some sort
of moralizing-idealistic desviation. He says here only that capitalism is
also a social system based upon
a negative human drive.
To discuss about this is waste of time and stupid. None of us is proudhonist
or narodniki.
