On Lethem v. Wood: Whose Fault Is It, Anyway?

I would like to know more about this "hissing like cats" business. Nothing is quite as tasty as well aged literary quarrel.

On How Much Can You Demand?

Next time, if you want to do something useful, occupy the republican party. It could use the return of it's middle and left. All you'd have to do is get control of the primary process and force out the tea party candidates.

Simple, and far more effective.

On How Much Can You Demand?

@Krugmanic Depressive

I'm sorry if you demand nothing, you'll get nothing. The conceit that by simply existing the system will change around you has been shown a failure throughout history. Did the boomers get anything by sitting around the pentagon and karmicly wishing the bad spirits out? No. We find ourself in an even worse situation, with a giant bloated security apparatus that ritually humiliates breast cancer survivors, and tortures our enemies.

Real progress in the last 40 years, in civil rights, n reproductive rights, women's rights, and queer rights have been the results of specific demands for specific things;we'd like marriage thank you, or we'd like the right o access birth control in it's many forms. Or how about the right to sit at the front of the bus. Moreover it takes decades of grinding work to even begin to turn the ship from its course.

To simply change the conversation allows the establishment to run out the clock, and change it back again. It will take one event to shift attention elsewhere and the moment will be lost.

Where I am the OWS has degenerated into farce with heroin overdoses, rats and fire hazards, the rise of the professional protester, and destruction of the original message of "inequality" and it's replacement by "I want".

On Three Rotten Classic Books I Never Want to See Again

@stuffisthings See I always wondered what Tolstoy *really* read like.

I was going to toss "War and Peace" on the pile of overrated crap, but I'll remove it pending a semi decent translation.

On Three Rotten Classic Books I Never Want to See Again

@Niko Bellic Agreed. And I'm deeply jealous that you got to read it the perfect altered state.
