Well Stan, I really would love to grant rightwingers some intelligence, but
since they believe in the benevolent and flawless mechanism of free market
and are deaf to environmental issues, I do not see any alternative. Looking
at the facts an intelligent person should know better. Of course there are
leftwingers who still believe in Marx and Marcuse, but those are just part
of the left wing. In the U.S. not believing anything makes you a communist
already and a very unusual Buddhist as well.


Yes, neo-Marxists abound, unknown to me how many of them are into Buddhism
as well. I've been reading a good deal on that topic lately, so far no signs
of much interest in Marcuse. Maybe I've missed it.
