Artesian raises substantial, clearly correct, theoretical objections  
to some of his (and Heinrich's) misconceptions about Marx's  
theorization of the falling tendency of profitability.  Angelus  
answers(?) polemically with some generalities attributed to Foucault  
(not, alas, the designer of the Pendulum) that he says reflect  
adversely on "Marxist politics in the United States" (as distinct,  
presumably, from the brilliant successes of  Marxist politics in  
Germany).  But the discussion on Marxist economic theory is absolutely  
not a discussion of Marxist politics (which would belong in a  
discussion of Heinrich's pathetic little chapter on The State).

  always was and is and shall be: an everlasting fire,
  kindling in measures and going out in measures.
