I leave others to decide whether there has been "false attribution". I
will only refer the reader to my [2576] and Andrew's [2563] and note
the following quotes from [2563]:

"...for Marx, criticism is the *method* of comprehending capitalism ...."

"Rather the commodity itself is a fetish in the strict and original sense
of the term, a thing that has un-thingly power."

"... the commodity-fetish has more developed subsidiary forms,
money-fetish, capital-fetish, etc. ...."

In solidarity, Jerry
