Capital as undead not only implies, but _requires_ (if we
are to seriously use the vampire metaphor) a particular 
relation to labour.  I.e. IF capital  is vampiric and undead 
THEN the labor employed by capital MUST be undead.

There is nothing wrong with it in vampire stories.

ONLY those who have not been bitten by vampires can resist.
