Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Well Céline too wrote Bagatelles pour un massacre or L'École des cadavres right before WW2 begins, and is considered by some an antisemite author, which doesn't stop him from being one of the biggest modern French writers. Or Sartre, a fan of Mao, which doesn't make him less famous a philosopher. I could go oooon and oooooon...

Oh I am not questioning his fame.  I just find your agreement with him interesting.  Encouraging, but unexpected.

I like Céline's style too, which doesn't mean I agree with his radical antisemitism.

You didn't say you liked Zezek's style, you said you particularly agreed with something he wrote.

Anyway...  Just sharing...  Go back to whatever you were doing.

lol no problem, 'zjust that -- if you look carefully, I also agreed with JakeS about pragmatists' "scientific methods". Does that make me a closet revolutionary? :P

Hey! I resent the implication that I'm a "closet" revolutionary - I like to think that I'm quite open and above-board about the kind of revolution I'd like to see ;-)
