6. Sir, have you no shame?

If the guy is a marxist , he's a marxist for crying out loud .

"Richard David Wolff is an American Marxian economist, well known for his work on Marxian economics, economic methodology, and class analysis."

7. Nobody's saying he's not....

.... but I don't see what's wrong with that. A Marxist critique of our contemporary gangster capitalism is much-needed.

10. So what are you saying? That someone who . ..

.... points out that a marxist is a marxist is engaged in some sort of smear campaign? Sorry, but pointing out that a self professed marxist is a marxist isn't mcarthyism.

If you want to persuade others to actually take such a critique serriously, you might want to avoid gratuitous name calling, such as "mcarthyism" and "gangster". It gives the impression that you don't have anything genuinely thoughtful to say.

12. People who don't want to take the critique seriously won't ............


..... even if they pretend gratuitous name-calling is the deterrent. But Richard Wolff's radio program is expanding rapidly, his speaking engagements are in high demand, and he's making lots of TV appearances lately, so apparently lots of people are taking the critique seriously.

Deny the failures and take credit for the success of others.

9. I suspect this should read co-ops. Chickens live in coops.

But I could be wrong, maybe they are going to move the workers into coops.
