: : RD said repeatedly that---according to Marx---since labor was a human?s 'life activity,' job rotation must be voluntary.

: : However, according to The Communist Manifesto (International 1948, p. 30), when the proletariat comes to power, there will be an '[e]qual obligation of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.'

: : Does THAT sound voluntary?

Piper: MArx wasn't the only socialist who ever breathed, yet you seem to think he's written the holy scriptures, cardinal stoller. Ever had even the slightest doubt that maybe just maybe Marx wasn't perfect HMMMMMM???

Was that the topic?

The topic was: did or did not Marx and Engels infer that in the communist (first phase) future work would be voluntary?

I put out a certain amount of quotes to back up my position, the last one quoted above.

Did YOU have something to say on that topic---or are you just hitting the 'submit follow up' on my posts like a pigeon on a variable-ratio schedule?

And why keep responding to me, sniveling about my 'abusive' tone?

SDF wrote you a perfectly good post (go check it out)...
