A Marxist Chinese academic, who translated and published one of my books 
and who was on PEN-L for a while, had been exiled to a job in the remote 
hinterland because of his concern with the confiscation of peasant 
lands.  He became so discouraged by this lawlessness that he thought 
that he only hope that peasants had would be for a (de Soto) free market 
in the countryside.  He wanted a Marxist solution but despaired of 
anything like that with the greedy bastards who are presently running 
the country.
