The Commenter as Tour de Force

  • "Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is nothing more or less than criminal rights and access to markets."

  • "Politicians in both camps expect us to believe that a single mom working at a diner is "middle class". Centrists are apparently unaware of or opposed to the emerging class consciousness in the US, and flogging a half-century old racist propaganda story about a classless society. Does centrism have to be that way? Can they treat their radical allies as assets rather than liabilities? "

  • "Back to Adorno, its essential that any person attempting toward transmodernism come to a comprehension of his work. Enlightenment as Mass Deception is a revolutionary concept and like any powerful truth its a double edged sword. Voltaire wrote "Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities." Neiztche comes to mind as being infamously misinterpreted, Adorno too I think. I'm not implying that you are misinterpreting him, rather the opposite. Keep in mind the dialectic method; I see your writing as not so much contrary to, but actually further expanding the School's sociology of modernity."

All the above are lifted from the comments on this blog.
