: [H]ow does disproving the labout content in valueable mateials validate the capitalist case anyway?
Once labor is removed from the calculation of (use-) value, pro-capitalists can state that the CAPITALIST creates value, not the PROLETARIAT---thus removing the issue of surplus-value (exploitation of the worker) from the debate.
Thanks for the encouragement.
