Negating my own negation

In this post I boasted about how historical materialists are less likely than liberals to offer unthinkingly naive "idealist" explanations for historical phenomona.

I also made reference to "the lack of any strong socialist or Marxist tradition in the States, and the consequent colonisation by 'liberals' of the space where there should be a 'left'" [emphasis added].

Contradiction? Hypocrisy? Tautology, even? Nope. Dialectics.
