I would take exception to part of the above. South Africa, IMHO,
cannot be placed in the same category as Australia and New
Zealand. But J. is right in his remark that too many Marxists have
schematised the world scenario to an unbearable level, and thus have
sterilized themselves politically while giving Marxism a bad name
among the masses...
