            wage labour for sustenance on commodities sold at market as the primary system of reproduction of capacity to exert?
            generalisation of the commodity form seeking profit through the circuit of expanded reproduction?

            No point in arguing with someone stupid enough to think that anything other than a completely unregulated, unfettered market is "not true capitalism." Please, O intelligent and awesome one, tell me how the private ownership of property for the purpose of profit is not capitalism.

    Read The Wealth of Nations first. Marx basically builds off of Smith's observations on the concentration of capital and it's relationship to labor in the form of markets. Ultimately, capital will always view labor as a mere input cost, a cost which can be kept as low as possible by forcing workers to labor for bare subsistence. Since all capital has this interest in common, the operation of the market is to push wages down to bare subsistence. In fact, the abolition of slavery was only allowed because it's cheaper to pay bare subsistence to a free man while his labor is needed and then turn him off your land when he isn't needed, thus saving you capital investment and maintenance of an idle worker. Essentially, capital MUST operate along psychopathic lines since this is what the laws of the market favor, thus any capital which operates with charity or compassion will be less efficient, and enjoy a lower return on investment, and consequently grow at a slower pace which results in the landscape of capital consisting of large holdings of psychopathic, amoral cut throats and ever shrinking smaller holdings of charitable but non-competitive holdings. The only answer to this is organized force against concentrations of capital, either by unions, government, or revolution. The works of Marx and others merely flesh out what I have said here. Keynes makes similar striking observations on the fact that labor does not follow the laws of supply and demand as exemplified by the following: when the offered price for a commodity is dropped, it should follow that less of the commodity will be forthcoming. Yet, if a given amount of men are unemployed and searching for employment (offering their labor for sale), a general drop in offered wages would have to be met with some such unemployed men withdrawing their offered labor from the market, a patent absurdity. Thus, at the core of the problem is the fact that men are held over a barrel and are blackmailed by need of sustenance to sell their labor at whatever price can be found. This wild disparity of power, together with the process of profit taking, means that employers invariably exploit their workers, and that the greater the exploitation, the greater the market will reward the exploiter, the greater will the holding of capital grow, and the greater will the ability of that capital holder to exploit to a greater degree. The end result must be violent revolution, since any system to redress this problem is vulnerable to the power that grows out of the exercise of capital. It's all rather bleak, really.

    How? He literally gives basic examples and graphs of algorithms/divet ends. His more philosophical writings in it I can undersyand, which he stupidly puts a lot of in square in the beginning and end, but the middle parts when doesn’t go into transcendental ramble about the dehumanization of Capitalism and other metaphysic shit; it’s pretty straight forward despite the math errors.

    You should be pretty familiar with the Hegelian dialectic beforehand. I can only assume it’s the dense theoretics that’s doing it as the rest of the book is really quite obvious to anyone that has ever worked a job before. Read some secondary material on Hegel: Pippin, Pinkard, Houlgate, etc. Avoid Robert Brandom

    Nah, you are a sane person with average or above average IQ and mental capacity enough to think, so your brain filtered his jargon that usually gets low IQ, non-educated laborers, or nowadays blue-haired and pierced libtard wagies.
    Be a moron and go take a huge loan to study some useless degree, or destroy your brain with porn, become a homosexual or a furry, and work for Starbucks. Maybe then you'll be able to grasp the holy Marxist man-child entitlement doctrine.

    Wage Labour and Capital; Marx wrote it to be as accessible as possible. If you're still filtered after reading it then there's no hope.
