What's the difference?

The social sciences abound in problems that are unintelligible by their very nature to both the American professor and the Marxist intellectual. -- Don Colacho’s Aphorisms: #2,908

Your Say

to both the American professor and the Marxist intellectual? Yep. I believe that's what is called a "pleonasm". :)

Marxist intellectual-those are two words that do not belong together in a sentence. Oxymoron cannot describe them.

In the mid-sixties, when I was teaching Poly Sci at the University of South Vietnam, I learned the value of forceful and direct negotiations.

Back in school, I had a "Marxist intellectual" Prof, a Ph.D in Poly Clownology, in whose class I used to argue, then burst out laughing at many of his positions.

Informed that I was in serious danger of failing the course for my opposing views in the 01, I simply asked him if he thought he could teach the 02 from the ICU. Negotiations were short.
He taught from the front of the class and I received a right proper grade.

Moral: Never back down from a Marxist Putz. They're not intellectuals but they are not stupid either.
