Thanks Jerry,

I keep arguing the same essential points re labour and value to
Hegel-inspired systematic dialecticians as I do to Michael Eldred
on OPE-L (hello to all concerned). Thus my remark has absolutely
nothing to do with 'guilt by association', though it can unfortunately
be interpreted as such by those who have a very different view to
my own.
