I found Ajit Sinha's [5564] in response to Jerry rather rude.
Of course Ajit may well put forward as his opinion that there are two and
only two readings of "Capital" possible -- thus also preclude that there
might be any more to learn from "Capital" (what I have always liked about
Marx is that he developed ideas anew and further throughout his life -- but
that is just a BTW, no argument).
However, more serious is that scientific argument requires adequate
positioning of arguments, including the labels of identifying them (even if
you dont like the other positions).
Jerry is quite right to point this out -- and I am very glad that he adopts
in this respect the role of list moderator.
If we dont respect such absolute minimum requirements it is better to stop
(I will come back to issues of content in my next mail.)
