A reply to part of David Laibman's ope-l 4768.

David wrote: "Why those who reject the Marxist problematic, and those who
turn that problematic into a rigid dogma, both insist on studying a model more
appropriate for the 18th century than for the 20th (or 21st) is something of a
mystery remaining to be solved."

The even bigger mystery is: just who are these evil creatures who turn "the
Marxist" problematic into a rigid dogma? Care to name names, David?

And why do you take for granted that there is some unitary problematic -- "the
Marxist" problematic -- out there? Wouldn't a non-dogmatic approach need to
justify this presuppostion in light of the evidence? It seems to me that one
Marxist said a lot of things that "the Marxists" don't agree with.

More to come, I hope.
