it is interesting to see how dogmatic  people are in demanding that a word
be used in a specific way. i am thinking of the distinction between words
liike spirituality, religion and God. these do not really have percise
meanings. well, they do to some people. somehow, magical power is attached
to the word. the word takes on a sacred meaning. this leads to a kind of
identity politics.

on the other hand, Marxism has its own sacred terms: dialectical materialism
v. scientific socialism. what is the difference?
