I think I have that one as well. My poli sci teacher was a refugee from
Russia. You are correct about the "trick" of politics, but like religion
most take it very personally even if they have no understanding of it's
fundamentals. I just find politics to depressing, the failure of ideals when
applied in real life does that to me.

-Has found a copy of Anti Durhing on the web, and is reading it as well.
