I fail to see how my comments could be considered a "personal attack" on
Dr. Frieders, that was certainly not my intent. I though the direction
of my comments would be clear by my citing of de Queiroz & Gauthier.

My "attack" is on the misrepresentation of supposed new, revolutionary,
evolutionary ideas contrasted against clinging, ancient, traditional,
stodgy, topological habits. I think this is just a wrong interpretation
of history and/or propaganda and is not leading us anywhere. Certainly
not toward a better system. How unfortunate that a some people may not
see historical facts as important guides for future endeavours.

The grand fact of the natural subordination of organic beings in groups
under groups, which, from its familiarity, does not always sufficiently
strike us, is in my judgement thus explained.  -Darwin
