I think the best way to free oneself from this type of reasoning is to 
study successful sciences: In what sense are they successful and how 
could they achieve it? Armed with this understanding prophets and their 
sacred scripts --- be it Hegel, Marx or von Hayek --- will vanish and be 
replaced by thinkers and their texts.
