    last week--very astutely, IMO--about Piketty's book and about how he couldn't possibly be a Marxist because he does not reject the market.

    So if that's a good summary, then how can the guy be a "post-Marxist"? I don't think there's any case to make for that, either, other than to try and find another way to equate "Marxism" with "Thomas Piketty" in the minds of readers.

    I'm not saying you, personally, do that here, JPR, I'm just saying "no thanks", period. This book is way too important to get bogged down in such a debate. I see no need to complicate the glass of water Piketty serves up, it's crystal-clear.

    Obviously, that scares a lot of people.

    This all started with "what the Republicans did to language".
