I would think that the more appropriate thing  would be to forward 
your personal thoughts of Tony directly to him.

  Both compliment each other, otherwise how do we develop our  
ideas? Certaintly, reading and discussing Marx et al. is important --

on these events seems equally important.  

This is what made Marx, Lenin et al. marxist.
