: Wrongo Bucko, if you re-read my post you'll see that laziness is endorsed by P. Lafargue, son-in-law of Karl Marx, in his brochure The Right to be Lazy. Lafargue, quoting Lessing, says "Let us be lazy in everything, except in loving and drinking, except in being lazy". And besides, by agreeing that labor ought to be reduced to it's barest necessity, isn't that the same as saying that it shouldn't be valued?

No Marxist takes Lafargue's utopian utterances seriously.

No Marxist EVER claims that 'labor ought to be reduced to it's barest necessity.'

You're just making stuff up as you go along---like a certain ex-President who eventually lost his marbles.
