Performative Victimhood

Yeah, aha. Tell yourself more of those stories, they are so cute. I grew up in a totalitarian USSR and then amidst the bandit wars. And where is my Marxism-Leninism or my belief in whoring myself out for money to rich old bandits?

You either are a figure of intellectual authority to your children or you aren’t. If you’ve fallen down on the job so badly that some creep online has to step in, then that’s on you.

Society, schmociety, the dog stole my homework. Nobody wants to take responsibility for anything. Everybody is such a victim.

Didn’t expect this vapid cluckery from Deneen who is a brilliant thinker.

  2. Is it OK if I opt out of the Virtue Circle Jerk and raise a few future warlords?

    I’m just preparing them for some good jobs that will exist once the remnants of the Westphalian state disappear and all of those predictions of Zygmunt Bauman turn into prescriptions. 🙂
