It strikes me as dangerous to get bogged down in issue sof whether RBs heart
is in the right place and that we should be supportive of 'emancipatory'
commitment - RB is a philosopher - the point of realist philosophy is that
it explroes the ontology of how the world is and what is possible from how
the world is and how we might work towards positive aspects of the same -
what should be intersting about MR is whther it is plausible, persuasive
worth pursuing as the best account we currently hold of some phenomena. If
we are going to be disturbed by new ideas and language this is why we should
be disturbed (because we think they are wrong). Does anyone have an opinion
on the substrance of his position?

If this job opportunity is for real, I have to add my voice to those who are
disturbed by it.....

"Also, if anyone may want to bring Ram Roy to their campus, place of worship
or other spiritual organization, self-improvement or business forum,
scientific or technical organization or some other kind of institution or
arena for him to speak and receive a fee or an honorarium, please also get
in touch with us. We will try to schedule him to accommodate those who
would like to hear him speak at their localities, but Ram Roy must be paid
for these appearances and his expenses must be covered in order for his
work to continue."

There is no reference in the list of organizations above to the following:

labor unions
environmental groups
feminist organizations
people of color
radical political organizations
oppressed people

Well, you get my drift...I thought Bhaskar was still claiming to be working
toward an emancipatory society. But for whom?
