In some ways, who could blame him?

Kronecker had "followers". Weierstrass had
"followers". Hilbert had "followers". The
list goes on to this day. I am almost certain
that Woodin has "followers". Shelah has made
a few remarks about the standpoint of the California
school.

The problem with WM is that he is not an equal
opportunity critic. With him, it is a one pony
show.
