BRIEF RESPONSE TO "FORMERLY A WAGE SLAVE"

In a response to my short and somewhat facetious post about the horrendous Greece mess, the frequent commentator with the Internet name "formerlyawageslave" made some remarks about the Czech Republic [where he(?) teaches] that resonated with me.

Some years ago, I had a very nice E-mail message from a student in the Czech Republic who had read my little book, In Defense of Anarchism and had apparently liked it.  He wanted to know what I was currently working on.  I told him that I was studying the thought of Karl Marx, which of course in the United States marked me as a rebellious Lefty.  He was very distressed to learn this, and I heard no more from him.  It was obvious that where he lived, only government tools and other finks studied Marx.  I was clearly not the liberatory author he was hoping for.

There is a lesson here too obvious to require comment.
