Just because they are intelligent, doesn't mean they aren't stupid.  Just 
because they are consistent in their loyalty to capitalism, doesn't mean 
they aren't unprincipled. [etc]

Nonsense. You are trying to merge politics, moralism, & logic. They don't
mix ths way.

"Principled" and "Unprinipled" are not moral judgments (and in any case Marx
himself never mad moral judgments. In his view, capitalism was not evil, it
was history.

It is impossible, exept on religious grounds, to ground moral judgments.
