Self-described leftists mocking the unenlightened and unwashed for science denial, mocking economic pseudoscience, and mocking technocratic scientist/political managers for massaging science in the service of messaging, all in turn, without batting an eye.

"Leftist" academic "intellectuals",  expressing adoration for the political and the intellectual life of prewar and interwar Europe, celebrating Vienna and Weimar without admitting to themselves what it means to love those things.

When I was a 9 year old—I'd said 12—copying George Grosz and listening or Brecht and Weil, I wanted a homburg with the brim turned down on one side. I didn't want to be a socialist or a fascist. I wanted to be immune. I understood what these idiots don't understand at 25 or 40. We're all part of the fucking disease.
