@yogthos But if an employer pays the employee the full value of said employee, who is going to cover business costs?

@asko and that's why we guillotine the bosses and take over all the means of production

@yogthos

@asko The point, I think, is that capitalism creates its "value" from exploiting (aka taking more than what you give back) resources. All value would be lost if the profit would be paid to workers (including managers, rent...) and natural resources (if that'd possible). That's not the same as "free" as in 100% gratis, but you get the idea:
capital = exploitation. @yogthos
