The critique of capital

To shift register slightly, Chris Dillow’s post, Tony Pulis: capitalist lackey, uses a football analogy (Arsene Wenger talking about a tackle) to very neatly explain one of Marx’s key points. Understanding this superficially confusing but actually simple point is central, in my view, to a truly radical Marxian critique of capitalism.
