Stuart S speaks his mind and immediately gets a going-over from the
Three-Headed Guardian at the gates of Stalin's inner sanctum. The concerted
frenzy of character assassination directed Stuart's way gives yet more
credence to Vladimir's characterization of them as a Rotten Bloc.
Louis P and Doug H are vacuous in content as usual. Not much to say there.
But Adolfo reached for his Kalashnikov:

Looks like Adolfo just shot himself in the foot -- again.
Nice job, Stuart! Welcome to the Marxism bit of marxism-list.

In Adolfo's world, the requirements are:

the suspicion of an intellectual edge
As you've noticed, he's almost as free with his honorary professorships as
