Hi Paul. 
I have not forgotten about that exchange. I just re-read 5274 and am
satisfied with that as an outcome  I note especially the following
descriptions: "due to transient and exceptional circumstances", an
"anomaly", where the state takes in effect "temporary custody" and
"foster care" of a capitalist  enterprise.  However, it would be impossible
for me not to note that the subject of our prior discussion -- unlike the
present one --  did not primarily concern what Marx did or did not write
and how best to interpret it.  I.e. our prior discussion centered around
the issue itself rather than hermeneutics. So I don't see how a current
thread on apples can  "resolve" our prior discussion of oranges.

May it be a year without another imperialist war!
