I don't think it makes sense to speak of them as comrades. If you look at
their new website, you can't even find archives for back issues of LM
magazine that have references to Marx or socialism, after a fashion. I
believe that their transmogrification is complete, from Marxists
fetishizing certain formulations in the CM to libertarians on a crusade for
higher level educational standards, the right to hunt foxes and all the
rest of what my grandma called mishegoyim. Talk about a butterfly turning
into a catepillar.
