"Stephen, to avoid getting into a futile argument in defence of his politics, asked, 'What about the conventional Capitalist views you have reverted to as you have grown older. Are you happy with them now?'
'No, not happy. But what else is there?'
'There is Marxism, which you have rejected in spite of the fact that present day Capitalism is in just the kind of crisis that Marx so well understood and explained.'
Peter said nothing. He gave the impression that he would be bored by any further discussion on this subject."
{Edward Upward, An Unmentionable Man, 1994}
