The educated class
"I started reading superhero comics over the last couple of years."
I don't even bother criticizing Republicans.

update: John Holbo quotes J.S. Mill in a discussion of X Men
“Speculative philosophy, which to the superficial appears a thing so remote from the business of life and the outward interests of men, is in reality the thing on earth which most influences them, and in the long run overbears every other influence save those which it must itself obey.”
Modernism, from tragedy to farce. Philosophy reduced to a 12 year old boy's fantasy of power. Mill was simply wrong. I don't know what to say about Holbo.
