I would think that self-importance is to inform us of your readings, Matt,
while you withold your position on the issues of the day from those who are
involved in struggle to apply the ideas which were not written for your
bourgeois enjoyment alone. Please do not use lumpen language as you tend to
describe yourself as a Maoist, which evidently is just another of your great
exagerations.  I think there is no need for that, least of all coming from a
liberal painted red.
