Concepts never mentioned by Marx, incidentally. I
guess that makes Marx a social democrat as well.

What a joke. You have obviously never read Heinrich
on the state. If you can't even give an effort to
represent someone's arguments accurately, a discussion
is a waste of time.

Who is talking about "contradiction"? The
_problematic_ of late Marx is completely different
than the early Marx. Notions in the Parisian
Manuscripts about a "human essence" do not emerge in
the later works at all, and the "alienation"
problematic is discarded completely.
It's not a question of "contradicting each other",
it's about abandoning one line of inquiry to pursue
another. If I stop studying comparative literature
and pursue the study of physics, that doesn't mean
that physics contradicts literature, it means that the
questions I am posing are entirely different.
This will be my last post on this subject unless you
give a minimal effort to actually read Heinrich and
represent his arguments accurately. Trying to
disabuse you of your religious beliefs is not my idea
of a fruitful discussion.
