Not for the first time Angelus shows that his sole answer to  
theoretical criticism is "ridicule."  And goes on to explain his  
refusal to reply to me by scoffing at the Spartacist League, a group  
with which I have had no political or other relationship for some 47  
years now (and which didn't exist while I was writing my successful  
dissertation on Marx's law).  This is about as *ad hominem* an  
argument as can be imagined!
