In response to a comment here.

It's amazing the number of things from history that we take seriously today that weren't taken seriously when they were made, not taken seriously even by their makers. The last one hundred years exhibited an excess of moral seriousness.
I'm a little tired of it.

Wolcott is the liberal's P.J. O'Rourke. I'll defend him only to the extent that I prefer writers, as craftspeople, to men and women 'of ideas.' But there are far better writers. He's a punk.

And speaking of moral seriousness:
What ithe fuck is "cultural content"? The productivist logic/optimism is grotesque. There are so many ways in which this isn't even worthy of mockery. More from CT.
Eszter Hargittai's question to me is just bizarre.
