Only someone thoroughly opiated by the Progressive religion could fail to distinguish between Western capitalism (the subject of Professor Ferguson's book) and imperialism (the subject of other books by the same author but not the one to which you refer).

I find Ferguson fascinating but scary. He is obviously highly intelligent and I can't resist reading his stuff. But somehow he is just so wrong.
