Right.  Or, for instance, is the Unabomber radical, reactionary, or just 
plain nuts?  Is he nuts because he has incoherent expectations of 
progress through return?  Are the Greens "nuts" in this way too?  What, 
put more philosophically, can be said about using the past as normative 
criteria for the future?  What would Nietzsche say?  And how, more 
interestingly perhaps, would Hegel respond to Nietzsche were he not dead 
(that is were he not dead-er than Nietzsche)?
