@zeithistoriker : ‘Against the neoliberalism taboo’

Just reached your ‘Against the neoliberalism taboo’ and your criticism of Daniel Rogers Dissent essay. I read Prof. Rogers ‘Age of Fracture’, relying on the praise offered in the TLS. I was impressed until I reached the Epilogue, where he frames it in a quotation from the execrable *Drama Queen and ‘Bell Curve’ advocate/apologist/enthusiast Andrew Sullivan!

In this Epilogue, Prof. Rogers proceeds to piss away the very impressive arguments that he built in the preceding chapters. I’m still angry about his betrayal of his own valuable  historical/political insights, that devolved into a verbose exercise in bourgeois political respectability.

*As a Queer I reserve the right for the use of this term!

Best regards



P.S. Thank your for your indispensable voice!

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
