That was unclear for me.

I think you're right because, imho, there is nothing at stake there --and I
tried to show that in my research. Regarding the "obsession". This is a
psycological feature which can affect some people if they have been under
specific situations. In my case, I have heard so much about that coming
from the anti-Marxist camp. Perhaps you have had the opportunity of working
in a better enviroment than other people.
