From The Baffler, David Graeber on a Practical Utopian’s Guide to the Coming Collapse. From n+1, too much sociology: Think back to the first time you heard someone casually talk of “cultural capital” at a party, usually someone else’s inglorious pursuit or accrual of it. From New York, an interview with Robert Silvers on the poetry of Twitter, hiding the Pentagon Papers, and how his journal of ideas emerged from the flood of “little magazines” as possibly the unlikeliest success story in publishing. Resisting resilience: Mark Neocleous on an epidemic of “resilience-speak”. From Curator, Alex Miller Jr. writes in defense of pompous asses (and a response). Jonathan Haidt on freedom and fairness: The new culture war is about economic issues, and the side that better sells its idea of fairness will have the upper hand. And now, by popular demand, Robert Paul Wolff on God (and part 2 and part 3).
