While in the post-capitalist view the relation of owning to the means of production is no longer seen as the bas(e)ic relation that compels exploitation and determines developments in culture, exploitation nevertheless does not disappear: it “expand[s] everywhere, … tending to occupy the entire social terrain” (209).
