132. You have this so backwards its unbelievable
but by calling it the "appopriation of the value of another's labor" you are immediately placing it into a capitalistic frame of reference.

The capitalist frame of reference exists independent of whether we acknowledge it or be so or not. Point out the relations of labor and capital under capitalism is not falling into the trap of capitalism. Capitalism commodifies everything, neither you, I or anybody else has a choice in that. You are objecting to a spade being called a spade here.

People are commodified under capitalism as mere sources of labor.

Your freedom of choice arguments will go over a lot better with Ron Paul. God forbid your freedom to exploit others we taken away..a travesty to be sure.
