"Mother", "milk" and "marxism"

Reader comment on item: The Left's New Enemy: "Empire"
in response to reader comment: I will support your delusions to the death

Submitted by Ianus (Poland), Jul 6, 2010 at 18:36

I am afraid I need neither your support nor your obscure lecture from which I didn't understand very much, let alone learned something new or useful. You have a very strange and obscure style of writing. I wonder what sort of literature has formed it ? It was hardly Gorbachov's writings , wasn't it , that influenced you ?

You overload your post with fashionable terms, allegories , comparisons that combined have no or very little meaning to me. What is e.g. "the mother's milk of marxist dialectic and fascist totalitarianism" ? So many big words and images mixed up - "mother", "milk" "marxism" , "dialectic" "fascism" "totalitarianism" . What sense do they make when put together , I pray ? Or what does the bombastic sentence "The progressive movement as it is now self named is the same Comentern of the 1930s or the Fabanists of the early 20th." imply ?

You seem to want to say too much with too few or wrong words in too short a space. I'll answer you if you write more clearly what your point is. As long as I don't see any , I can't say anything on it.
