In the early 1970s world systems research was criticized for being largely
political and the group doing the research often was called a SECT. It
was a serious challenge to the status quo, as is PART of po mo in recent
years. PART of the work in po mo is as relevant and important today as WS
(aka pews) was then, and PART of WS continues to be relevant and
important. The recent witch-hunt with po mo as the witch brings back
memories of ws as witch. In essence, neither is close to being the
monolithic problem or solution portrayed in recent citings (sic).

P.S. For anyone who is going to claim that ws did the tough empirical work
to move into the status quo, they are ignoring that PART of po mo which
also has done the same.
