The Symposium

Writing and Rewriting

She is a Socialist only insofar as she is anti-capitalist, a Marxist only insofar as she despises meritocracy, and a Freudian only insofar as she feels constrained by her sexuality.

The modern scientific "objective" perception is entirely concerned with phenomena, like a researcher who experiences life entirely through microscope slides, failing to look at the beautiful world surrounding him, and then stubbornly dictates that his is the only true way of knowing and everything existing outside of those few inches of glass is a…
