reply to Pound

Okay, so far we have fascism and now populism. You can tell that a thread
has about had its course when the reply to an argument is a label. Rather
than dealing with the substance, you just dismiss the label. Of course, we
could stretch this thread out a bit farther yet--how about sexist? Have we
heard that one yet? Or elitist, which I might uncharitably use to
characterize Pound's argument (but will avoid that temptation--Mr. Pound is
sincere in presenting his own argument). How about obscurantist?
Solipsist? Proctologist?
