@BretStephensNYT @soledadobrien has your number!

Mr. Stephens @soledadobrien has your number! But the paraphrase of Sen. Dirksen… , some of us watched ‘The Ev & Charley Show’ on network news, back in the day!

‘Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt, authors of ‘The Coddling of the American Mind,” that Party Line was  enunciated, in the last Century, by the old political hysteric Alan Bloom, in his ‘Closing of the American Mind’ , featured rhetorical player,  Rock and Roll is addling the minds of our youth.

Now deservedly forgotten, this classic of political paranoia was steeped in  Starussian mendacity, if that isn’t a tautology! Like Imhotep in the old Horror film ‘The Mummy’  reanimated not by the “Scroll of Thoth”, but a new team of political hysterics Lukianoff and Haidt! Who have reanimated the Bloom cadaver for the New American Century.

Sincerely yours,

Myra Breckenridge

About stephenkmacksd

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
