Hi

Let me offer up...

If any further questions, happy to help, may need to charge if it gets difficult.

Lots of love etc

P.S. I’ve known a few people over the years who like to refer to "Capital" and "The Class Enemy" synonymously. Here, I’ve always imagined, they refer to the bourgeoisie and their ownership of “fixed capital”, ie. The means of production.
