On Ticktin again.

Speaking of two fellow Glasgow citizens, if people do want
to pay attention to luminaries from the School of Soviet
studies, can I recomend the late Alec Nove in preference
to Ticktin - whilst he was not a Marxist, his was capable
of constructing well reasoned arguments.

I disagree with, and have polemicised against his conclusions,
but he at least poses serious strategic questions for socialists.
Ticktin has no coherent theory of socialism that I can
discern at all.
