Two modes of alienation.

Alienation is oppressive if it longs for things lost, stolen, or denied. Alienation is liberation if it renounces things never needed, wanted, or possessed.

The truism of Marx, “Capital.”

Profit comes from exploitation: there is no gain in playing fair.

Sympathy can cover great distances.

The conscientious among a certain class is conscious about exploiting workers overseas. Even this minimal expression of conscience, though, rarely questions the right to exploit workers closer to home.

Surplus alienation to the rescue.

Capitalist exploitation will never put capitalism itself into crisis.
