I’m glad you enjoyed my comments but sad that you didn’t understand them. I am not the “pretentious intellectual” in this conversation: that spot was already taken. You must be aware that your use of the word “Bourgeois” marks you as a Marxist, as it is the Marxist hate-word for the middle classes. If you were not aware of that, now you are: don’t use it unless you do hate the middle class. Try using “Middle class” instead, if that is what you mean. That explains your comment about “the bizarre red herring about Stalinist central planning, my hatred of the middle class” then. You didn’t understand the meaning of the words you were using.

Hopefully now you do, or must I phrase that as “Hopefully I have expanded the lexicon of your comprehension of vocabulary”?
