7. "Maybe you should learn a little bit about organized crime ..."
Or maybe you should try figuring what Scott means by "organized crime" when he uses the term. In everything of his which I've seen he suggests the classical mob and tries drawing connections to such from the 1960s up to the present day. Of course Guiliani is not part of "organized crime" in that sense. He's worked energetically to put it out of business (even if one wishes to argue that he was only doing so to enable a new gang to take its place). The connection which Scott is attempting to draw breaks down in the face of that. You simply are debating how the term "organized crime" may be used, not the merits of Scott's thesis.
