Is there a real difference between exploitation and alienation? It seems
alienation is the direct consequence of exploitation: "Through
estranged, alienated labor, then the worker produces the relationship to
his labor of a man alien to labour and standing outside it. The
relationship of worker to labor engenders the relation to it of the
capitalist;or whatever one chooses to call the master of labor" (Marx,
Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts, Tucker ed., p.79).
