O has switched political allegiance. Communism has been abandoned in favour of Free Market Anarchy.  Amazon are delivering daily instalments of Nozick and Rawls.

‘Why Rawls?’ I asked as he would have no time for Free Market Anarchy.

‘You’ve got to argue BOTH sides.’ Of course. That’s why I endured hundreds of pages of Nozick.

The domestic habits of the Free Market Anarchist are identical to those of the Communist.
