Paul Sweezy as bourgeois formal logician? Hmmmm. At least, he has enough of a Marxist understanding to appreciate--unlike you--the fact that capitalism was overthrown in Cuba. And, Rakesh, it doesn't take very much to spout overheated rhetoric like "the violent direction of the system that makes it overthrow a matter of life and death." If you took this rhetoric seriously yourself, you wouldn't be living in patrician Princeton, New Jersey, trying to join the ranks of academia.
