I didn't call him a

I didn't call him a propagandist, and I don't think I'd ever call him that... It's the way people perceived the books at the time... and obviously he wasn't the only influence. I'm not in any way angry at Dickens... There were other comments about my comment saying tat Dickens supported a free market and was an entrepreneur, which I think was true, but being "radical left wing" 200 years ago was wanting free public education for everyone.... FDR would be a considered a radical right wing conservative if he was alive today.... Obama would have been viewed as a communist... So ya, Dickens wasn't for what the government is doing NOW...
