Louis: You just strike me as a windbag, that's all. Someone who is too 
"Marxist" for the anarchism list and too "anarchistic" for the Marxism 
list is somebody who just has no interest in organized politics or 
changing society. You see yourself as the critic of the folly of others. 
Flaubert once said of critics: they are people who suffer from a lack of 
talent. Instead of becoming soldiers, they end up as police spies.
