Yesterday, while Brexit was winning, a friend posted a link to a screed about how condescending liberals are. Guilty as charged, your honor. One of my favorite things about being a liberal is that I don’t have to consider people my equals to want them treated decently. Everyone should have a living wage and a single-payer health system, even if they’d much rather be protected from queers marrying each other.

In 1970 a scholar named John Allegro wrote a book seriously maintaining that Jesus was a psychedelic mushroom. The same theory has been applied to another historical figure who has been the object of religious reverence.

Overweening Generalist on deliberate obscurity in writing, and a look at one of its leading practitioners, Judith Butler, who now appears to have been saying something useful (about gender as performance) underneath all the bafflegab. (It is now widely believed that two ’50s figures who were famous for talking incomprehensibly—Casey Stengel and President Eisenhower—were using a version of this tactic.)
*Oscar Wilde
