Quoting Mao or any other political figure/philosopher does not automatically indicate an affinity for that view. It merely indicates educational familiarity.
Stating a person is a “favorite” certainly indicates a *favorable* view of said person or philosophy.

Very possibly. I asked back in #370 if favorite philosophers matter. I’ll go with an example. I remember that early in his presidency, GW Bush decalred that Jesus Christ was his favorite philosopher. I also remember that he did a fair amount of pandering to the religious right. Given that, do favorite philosphers matter?
