You are correct about the incomprehensible&haute bourgeois language common
among the academic left . Have you ever watched the movie _Ridicule_?  It tells
the story of a French aristocracy organizing an intellectual name dropping
contest to impress the king.  A very instructive movie indeed. It reminds me
some list forums outside marxism list, not to mention the non-marxist left.
