Piper: I'm going to have to throw in with stoller here. Assuming what frenchy said of himself is true (one can't ever be careful on the net, for all we know he could be a 10 year old kid taking the piss), then he is exactly the sort of person you marxists should be looking to 'convert'. I mean is that how your planning on winning over the working class? Ridicule? That's not going to win over anybody it's just going to alienate and push them towards anything but marxism.

The only person being an idiot in such a situation is the marxist, because they are undermining their own goals for the sake of intellectual flatulence.
