[Hickel:] Karl Marx's key error is the idea that capitalism develops according to laws, that these laws are described by the tendency of the profit rate to drop, and that in the long run the system must collapse. This hypothesis has proven to be wrong, because capitalism has repeatedly found new ways of dealing with its crises.

When the highwayman holds his gun to your head, you turn your valuables over to him. You 'consent' alright, but you do so because you cannot help yourself, because you are compelled by his gun. Are you not compelled to work for an employer? Your need compels you, just as the highwaymans gun.

Abraham Lincoln
