That is not what is at issue. What is at issue is the specific 
character of the Occupy movement that came into existence as a 
manifestation of anarchist and autonomist conceptions that are 
different from classical Marxism. I simply don't believe that an 
article recommending to this movement that it read Lenin's "State 
and Revolution" is useful. I rather consider this left-scholastic 
bombast.
