To write that Uno rejected Marx's theory and to, in
effect, question whether he was a Marxist (by writing
"Marxist" Uno Kozo rather than Marxist Uno Kozo)
is telling -- about West, I think.   Hopefully, this is not
a reflection on the Marxist Hayashi Hiroyoshi (note that
West when referring to Hiroyoshi referred to him as a
Marxist but referred to Uno as a "Marxist").
