Just a gentle question, the same one I'd ask myself:

Have you actually read the work in question? (_The Fourth Turning_).
If not, how can you be sure you know what their actual thinking is?
Or doesn't that matter--is a kneejerk reaction based on second- or nth-
hand opinion all you're up for?

Methinks I hear a category error in analysis, but not the one you hear...
