I really think you should be a little more careful about what you are
saying.To discredit a respectable scientist like Wilson by accusing him of
calling his critics Marxists *whenever* they oppose to his ideas on
sociobiology is at best rather disgusting.
If this is indeed the strategy Wilson uses to deal with his critics then
you should be able to give us lots of references.
