Well, I do not understand in what we disagree. Plunder in colonial times was
legal, just as slavery. Originary accumulation may be legal or illegal. And

and thieves just consumed the produce of their thefts, they did not apply it
as capital.
I am not familiar enough with American slang to know what is a "neck man".
Thank you for your attention.

form of capital circulation based on itself. Capital is the highest form of
organized crime. I think we need to call this "thing" illegal capital
accumulation but whoever can buy the person in power makes the illegal
legal. I felt you
