Marx' whole edifice is instantly levelled to the ground or deep under where it belongs with a single observation about his understanding of value.
He thinks that the value of an object is defined by the man-hours put into it.
It never occurred to him that the value of an object is actually simply what it worth to someone.

So in Marx' world view, if a person spends ten years blindly hammering away at a piece of iron, the resulting object is worth ten times more than a good house built by a man in a year.

Okay then.

Whats even more baffling is that Im the first one to notice this error.

I also talked about this error once in an academic philosophy server full of people all of whom were attacking me for such a blasphemy to say Marx didn’t know what value means, I explained it very well and defeated all their arguments. I proved my point, the truth, and I was cordial about it too. Won a couple people over. That’s about when after several hours of good discussion I was suddenly banned without warning.
