Let me take this opportunity to state that I am a classical liberal
with respect to the clash of ideas. I take a Popperian view that it is
advantageous to have a multitude of competing ideas that are freely
and fairly discussed.

I am using "anti-Marxist" and "anti-science" in an attempt at scholary
accuracy; nothing more, nothing less. I will be interested in
arguments against my characterization of the text. I am not interested
in arguments that such labels should not be used in scientific
discourse, for whatever reason. I will say what I think.

It is a matter of fact whether or not the text is "anti-Marxist".
Rational individuals should be able to debate, and iterate towards
agreement on this matter of fact. I am more than prepared to change my
mind, in the light of counter-arguments.

Best wishes,
