Right, the structure of data would be too low-level to be able to capture behavior. As in mathematics, in OO the internal structure of objects is irrelevant and when considered, then only as an implementation detail to be abstracted away. OO deals with the structures of sets of objects exposing same behavior and relations between such sets.

Huh, both regarded themselves as true Leninists. No, by this analogy c.d.t. wanted to impose Leninism on us, others who consider Leninism just a silly amateur philosophy, though very wicked when tried in practice. You know the examples, the Gulag, SQL... (:-))
