Charles, I really can't understand, _at all_, why you are posing these
questions that come from nowhere and lead nowhere, either
philosophically or politically. All connections between biology and
social relations are tautological and trivially so.

M&E's statement about class struggle was _not_ a theoretical proposition
but an empirical observation, which can only be justified by empirical
study of "hitherto existing society," not by attempting through playing
with the word "Necessity" to make marxism a religion with all its truths
derivable deductively from "first principles" as in Theology.
