Sayan: "But this is precisely what Marx did -- he spent long hours 
studying, and analyzing, and understanding, capitalism, which was both 
powerful and influential."

But that was with the goal in mind of overthrowing the system. Marx studied 
capitalism in the way that scientists study cancer cells. They want to 
understand how they mutate and metastasize with an eye to eliminating it.
Yoshie studies the Islamic Republic or Iran because it is an attractive 
model. She fervently hopes that the model might spread to the rest of the 
Middle East.

In other words, apples and oranges. Or maybe more like apples and prunes.
