Yeah, OK, Hitler wasn't a vegetarian, it wasn't the best example of my point, which was that Frenchy's quote of Sowell shows up Sowell as reasoning about Marx's "character" while at the same time ignoring Marx's DESCRIPTION OF CAPITALISM with bland words of ignorant praise.

Got a better idea for an analogy that describes the obsession with "character" of Thomas Sowell's prose? No, Marx wasn't the hero of a Horatio Alger story. Was that supposed to be his contribution to history?

Hint for anti-Marxists: dare to debate CAPITAL. I've already given my shot at the Communist Manifesto, so let's skip the mood of 1848 and skip to that search for the part of Marx that applies today.
