A reply to Jerry's ope-l 3101.

Who says I was not amused? Maybe it is too dialectical, but I was amused and
appalled at the same time.

For someone who doesn't want to discuss what Marx said about v = 0, Jerry,
you're not doing a very good job of staying away. Or maybe you only want *me*
not to discuss it?

If you want to discuss it with me, I suggest we return to the point where
*you* broke that discussion off. As I have noted in recent days, that point
was where I claimed that if the whole working day is appropriated by capital,
as Marx assumed at one point, then necessary labor equals 0 *and* v = 0. What
is your response?
