This may well be so. The interesting question is: Why?
Theory on my part: For the bourgeoisie it's extremely
important *not* to have their arch-reactionary but quite
primitive "green" propaganda *not* attacked and exposed
by Marxists, and you sense that and thus acted on their
behalf. As I wrote elsewhere, the future will show whether
my guess was correct or not.
