Hugh publicly informs Richard (as if the rest of us didn't already know):
>[t]he stuff we have been arguing about is elementary.
Of course it is, Hugh, but that is the whole point, is it not, to take
fairly simple--"elementary"--concepts and, through the competent employment
of purple prose and obscure jargon, render them inapprehensible to all but
a handful of fellow pedants?
Richard's self-deprecating remark--if it is indeed genuine--is touching in
its naivete. Even now, I suspect, his "congratulatees" are snickering
over his drooling, ill-advised "apology." He will learn--if he sticks
around long enough--that the real "apology" for the Marxism list is due,
not to those who hold high their intellectual pretensions, but, rather,
>from those whose committment to Marxism and social change goes no further
than technical gibberish and superficial arguments.
