Pseudo Review – 2: How Deep Do The Unpeeled Layers Of Your Rotten Onion Go?

Subtitle: "Democracy In Chains" By Nancy MacLean Goes Seriously Deep Into What Makes #Americant Stupider Not Greater. She took me deeper, dear worst-reader. This historian, this professor-type person that writes books--and she can take you deep, too. That is, if you're at all inclined to go deep. Especially the kind of deep that involves figuring …

Pseudo Review – 1: “Democracy in Chains” – A Book To Steal The Heart Of Any Rational Useless-Eater That Figured Out How To Dropout In Style And Doesn’t Look Back With Too Much Anger

Update: Pseudo Review - 2 is here. Afeared yet, dear worst-reader? Well, if you ain't afeared yet, it might be time to get your bloomers in an uproar. Or is it get your bloomers in a gander? Wait. How 'bout gettin' things up in a pickle? Nomatter. I've been reading the book Democracy in Chains …

Suburban Hell Tribe Wars Or How The Feminine Stole The Show

There are two things I always think about when I think about the tale of Beowulf. The first is the connection the story has to religion, specifically monotheistic religion. At the time the story was written polytheism was still relatively common in Northern Europe. Even though it is a very minor part of the original …

Doing What’s Do-Able In Times Of #Trump And Too Much Freedom To Be Stupid

Believing in the power of knowledge has been a worst-mantra of mine for years. That's probably why it's so difficult for me to deal with the anti-intellectualism that has overcome my beloved & missed #Americant. I mean, what else could get a man like #Trump so far in this life? Or do you actually believe …

Julius Caesar Killed With (Bad) Ideas Not Daggers–Just Like My Beloved #Americant

Coincidence? I finally (it's been on my to-do list for a while) started re-reading Thornton Wilder's Ides of March... in March? Actually I started re-reading it the last few days of March and casually finished it at the end of April. Reason? I had put it off long enough--and it was time. For I knew, …

How I Subverted The Sedition Act (Of 1918) Or Re-Read Chris Hedges’ “American Fascists”

Thoughts after first read of this book here. Obviously I've subverted nothing. I mean, come on. How can worst-writer, leader of the uselesseater union of the world and advocate for forced early retirement (as long as the women-folk and their feminism pay for it), subvert anything? Unless, of course, subversion is defined by how one …

What Happens When You Cross Dorian Gray With The Devil Wears Prada? Worst-Writer’s Thoughts On Emma Tennant’s Faustine.

The only problem worst-writer has with this wonderfully imaginative novel about The Feminine is how, if it were a quilt, it would be sewn together with a single thread. That thread, unfortunately, is the opposite of The Feminine. I suppose, if pushed to answer what that opposite (thread) is, I'd have to say this book …
