JUST BECAUSE I WANT TO

Trump's hideousness continues to metastasize, and he is not even inaugurated yet.  I see some signs of life from OURREVOLUTION, and the Democrats in Congress are cranking up to try to protect Medicaid, which is the first social safety net program targeted by the Republicans.  I am still scheduled to fly up to DC for the Women's March [no longer the Million Woman March, inasmuch as there is no hope of their getting a million of us.]  So as a sort of self-protective act, to preserve my sanity, I will respond to Jerry Fresia by writing, today or tomorrow, an explanation of the connection between capitalist expropriation and capitalist exploitation.  I have no idea whether anyone other than Jerry is interested, but it will make me feel better to spend a little time writing about something I care about and am interested in.  What the hell, this is my blog, right?

The debate regarding the normativity of the use of 'exploitation' in capital is certainly staggering (Cohen, Wood, Geras, etc). Your take is of course of serious interest!
