capitalism needs wage-labor, right?

started reading jacques camatte, because of his amadeo bordiga influence (which gilles dauve, whom i really enjoy, shares) but he seems to over-stress the idea of capital running away from humanity--does anyone agree with this? isn't capital still based on wage-labor? do we not produce and reproduce the conditions of our existence? camatte seems to give too much credit to autonomous capital and seems to make the same error boureois economists make in anthropomorphizing it. he seems to have overreacted to the end of the gold standard for the currency and seems to have taken this to mean that capital has become compltely immaterial. has anyone else read jacques camatte? what are your thoughts?
