The Mode of Reproduction

"Only by socializing the means of production can we achieve a truly rational mode of production. Women, in their very persons, are both the means of production and the owners of the means of production. Their organs are constant capital, and the lovemaking labor of men is variable capital. Just as workers must wrest control of the means of production away from their owners, the capitalists, and convert them from private property into social property, so men must expropriate women's bodies and put them in the service of society as a whole."
- from Ain't I a Hick?: The Autobiography of Richard Mourdock, ghostwritten by Lynn Vincent
