RE: [OPE] Merry secular christmas for everyone.

Hi Bapuji and Alejandro:


Well, in one sense, Christmas can't be separated from its religious

meaning. That's impossible. Yet, in another sense, capitalism itself

has accomplished the impossible: it caused a re-birth of Christmas

as a commercial holiday - an opportunity to produce and exchange

commodities. This is more apparent in some capitalist

social formations (especially the US) than others.


In solidarity, Jerry
