Trying to read the big Marx book. I didn't get very far before I gave up the liveblog.
There is, it turns out, a lot that Marx and Engels have to say before we actually start with the whole 'reading Capital' thing. In large part, Marx complaining about the state of political economy in 1870s Germany. This turns out to be surprisingly entertaining.
Capital, chapter 1: The Commodity
Marx doesn't waste time: it's time to learn a theory of value.
