If indeed it was true that "the contradiction between use-value and
exchange-value" is the "fundamental contradiction" to which all other
contradictions can be "reduced", why then does Marx hardly discuss
use-value at all?



That is a fair point, and how indeed is one supposed to deduce all the
other contradictions of capitalism from this, unless by sleight of hand
one sneaks in other initial conditions.
