My answer, then, to this question is that I *don't* discuss brands and
the historical grounds for adverising success on the marxism list (where
I assume certain premises are shared). What is at issue on PEN-L
is the validity of the third thesis on Feurbach versus bourgeois
psychology as a strategic principle in political organizing. But that
debate is for PEN-L, not marxism.
