Capitalists and Searchable Pdfs

Writing a massive study must be much more tedious and time consuming without searchable pdfs. Even though I’ve taken notes and highlighted passages its usually quicker to find them by searching pdfs. As a bonus sometimes the searches turn up passages I forgot or missed like this one which I think shows the interesting relationship between necessity, contingency and the necessity of contingency in capitalism as it relates to its endemic crises:

In every stock-jobbing swindle everyone knows that some time or other the crash must come, but everyone hopes that it may fall on the head of his neighbor, after he himself has caught the shower of gold and placed it in secure hands. After me the delugle is the watchword of every capitalist and of every capitalist nation.

And this gem:

And equal exploitation of labour power by all capitalists is the first human right of capital.
