Disrobing the Politics of Cultural Difference

Interesting roundup at Metafilter: Disrobing the Politics of Cultural Difference. I especially like Dr. Christopher Powell's contribution, though his conclusion about Marx and Engels may be a bit shallow. The reason they're hard to understand is they don't accept easy answers. In their youth, they could be described as eurocentric, but their thinking is not ultimately eurocentric unless capitalism is eurocentric.
