Riccardo: "P.S. Andrew, do you have some short and clear answer why what

misrepresantions of his value and accmumulation and crisis theory?"

To the extent that what you're saying is true, my answer is:

(a) The misrepresentations help reinforce capitalist class rule. (I

short, as you requested.)

(b) Misrepresentations aren't recognized, acknowledged, and repudiated,
because interpretations aren't tested empirically against the whole of
Marx's work.
