Geuss has a specific target (the academic moral philosophy.) These dudes, and there're scores of them, have a hard time precisely in indicating that the system of incentives is given by -inter alia-  the power-starved nature of humans, and even more of non-powerful policy wonks. It is a point that is trivial is that everyone knows that, politicos included, but the academia does not say it, minus or plus the economists who have a clear idea of what they are talking about (not too many, IMHO.)

Secondly Geuss is part of a trend of epater le bourgeois, hence the fascination with Vladimir Ilich that plagues his recent writings, shared by some-

 должны молчать. = bisogna tacere. :-)

Visto che vado a ruota libera, dico che a me e' piaciuto oltre a "Cuore di Cane" di Bulgakov (Михаил Афанасьевич Бульгаков, dove in realta' il messaggio principale era che il trapiano dell'ipofisi di un uomo "cattivo" in un cane "buono" ha trasformato il cane in "cattivo"... ho anche il film in originale russo), pure il classico "Il Maestro e Margherita".

Fine OT :-)
