there is an oo book, without language. ie, a book that claims to deal
with oo, and not a particular oo language. it is ''object oriented
software construction'', by bertrand meyer. perhaps it would be
possible to aim the anti-oo critique towards the ideas in that book?

failing that, would it not be better to pick a ''good'' oo language? if
nothing else it would avoid the ''that is just a strawman'' type of
argumentation you are refering to.
