Onne could if they were willing to navigate the
metaphysics of dialectical materialism, looking to
extract value from the less than so.

There is unquestionably a dialectical tension between
labor and capital; how one interprets that
historically is another matter altogether.

The notion of the contradictions within capitalism
becoming so unbearable to where we inevitably shift to
socialism and/or communism is nonsense. Dialectical
materialism as a teleological truth has run its
course; what remains are valuable nuggets for class
analysis.
