C.Bloggerfeller is on about Marx, in response to God of the Machine. It really is a queer business when you deny that justice is anything more than a ruse fostered by the economic system that happens to reign at the moment, and then you realize that you've been advocating that one system is the really just one, and then you catch yourself in the contradiction and ultimately just bury yourself in your maniacal economic studies as a way of coping with the intellectual dissonance. It's rough when you realize you advocate a telos, having devoted your career to it and to proving that it doesn't matter. It's awful being Marx. So, of course you'll lash out, ad hominem.
