For those with an interest in this sort of thing, Michael Albert of Z Magazine is engaged in an ongoing debate with Alan Maas of the International Socialist Organization (ISO) over Marxism.

Albert trots out all of his favorite strawmen, including this howler:

"My critique here and in my opening essay is of the Marxist base/superstructure idea that defining influences flow only from economy to polity, culture, and kinship but not vice versa."

Ouch!  Somebody hasn't read their Althusser!
