I heard something by someone I am supposed to disagree with. Therefore I will spend a bunch of time figuring out how to disagree with it, elaborately constructing responses that confirm my own biases. I will use a lot of complicated words and drop a lot of names to sound smart. I’ll use Facebook to quote scholars known for particularly dense prose out of context. That way I can seem well-read and eager to hear new ideas, while working to create the most pretentious and pointless comment thread in existence. At no time will I risk looking stupid, because that would expose what a generous, passionate, thoughtful human being I actually am.
– Blessed be the incoherent, who struggle to be honest and articulate.
