    Marx knew he was making his pitch to people like you. So do we.

    I do not care to discuss Marxism with yet another Marxist. It does not really matter. He was a failure in his life. And most Marxists are failures in theirs.

    I am a bit tired of Marxists. You guys are so tedious.
    Cronyism is inevitable in a capitalist system that lacks proper restraint.

Thus the worker's labor becomes an alien object which confronts him and over which he has little or no control. Thus, the worker wanders from place to place, like a pitiful puppy looking for a home, seeking employment. Frequently, he must take whatever is offered to him, regardless of whether it is something he likes or not. If he does not like what he is given, he must endure regardless, as there is no sympathy. If he complains, he is labeled a cry baby. And even if he may take some satisfaction in his work, he is confronted constantly with the fear of unemployment, because the capitalist cares little about him as a person, but rather how much surplus value can be extracted from his labor.

    Labor is a commodity, except to marxists. Pray tell what Nirvana does things as the left wants them done?

    That wasnt a specific answer. It seemed like you just repeated your claim.

    Who are they/them?

    No. Political systems that are corrupt are required. It is government that requires proper restraint.
