    I shouldn't think that he thought the inputs were infinite. One of the spurs for Marx was Malthus, after all. What he could not see was the growth of food supply that would relieve a base pressure that should have stressed unequal economies much more and much more quickly than imperialism could have compensated.

    However, any professional class that is non-productive is inherently unfair. To speak less moralistically, such classes are unequal; they create an impossibility of value. However, all the aggregations moved toward establishing such a class -- whether it was aggregating food sales from the village (most equal, least profitable) to the futures market and mass sales between nations (most profitable, least equal) or the struggle for labor from the artisans against the bourgeoisie (direct and close) to "labor" against "management" (professional positions that have representatives drawing a salary to manage a continual strategic stalemate).

    Everyone is innocent of some crime.
