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).
This cosmos did none of gods or men make, but it
always was and is and shall be: an everlasting fire,
kindling in measures and going out in measures.
