Patrick, doesn't demonising Mugabe, when the only alternative to his 
government is that of a US protégé, count as "talking left, walking 
right"?
About neoliberalism's rehabilitation of the Hegelian concept of "civil 
society", I prefer Marx's original critique of it, crucial to 
socialism, in "On the Jewish Question", as the alienated right of 
property; he called it the war of all against all.
George W. Bush has forever defined democracy, as he claimed at a press 
conference he had made it clear to Vladimir: "Democracy means, when 
you make an investment, you know that the laws won't be changed --  
:-)" (His smiley face, not mine).  Soros made the meaning of all this 
clear in Georgia.
Comradely,
James
