As a part of this project I will, from time to time, post a word or idea and my judgment (or the judgment of someone else if I find it particularly enlightening.) This will not be open to comment because the point isn't to bicker about it and exchange opinions, but to raise the expectation that when people use words and ideas, that they develop them and take them seriously and respect them because nothing will change for the better in the absence of reason and reason cannot flourish if its very medium is depleted and degraded.
In this, my sentiment is expressed marvelously by the writer and translator Alexis Lykiard:
"Ducasse in one sense leads to the Orwell of Politics and the English Language and beyond, to Vaneigem and the Situationists who by shrewd use of collage and juxtaposition exposed both the poverty and richness of slogans, and the thinly veiled hypocrisy of a society which by not respecting words abuses people, and by insulting the intelligence creates a state of political cretinisation in which the various forms of authoritarian control may dominate." —Introduction to his translation of Ducasse’s Poésies (1978)
