Wait, what? Voluntarily agreeing to be compensated for surplus labour is and isn't profit? How can it be both? If you don't open the lid, the cat is both dead and alive at the same time?


you really don't know what you're talking about. a synonym for "surplus labour" is "unemployment".


Leisure time is not 'unemployment'.


we weren't talking about leisure time. surplus labour is unemployment. it is labour that is not being used.

but if you want to talk about leisure time, we would all have a lot more of it if we worked less for someone else's profit and more for our communal and personal interests and survival.

I require my own vehicle, as mass transit is sorely lacking where I live. And, to race cars, you must first have a race car.


Your loss.


can't lose what you never needed and never wanted in the first place. maybe if Tesla can invent an environmentally sustainable electric car, that will change. until then, i'll stick with riding my bike and using public transit.

nope. none of the words you are saying mean what you think they mean.

surplus labour is unemployed.


Nope. Again, helping your neighbor paint a fence isn't 'employment', it's what you do on a Saturday to help your neighbour out. You trade some of your leisure time for money. That's profit.


if you disagree with well established definitions, then i have nothing further to say. you are actually just making things up.
