Literature is not exhaustible for the simple and sufficient reason that no single book is. A book is not an isolated entity: Borges, "A Note on Toward Bernard Shaw" Over the past two decades, as the high tide of modernism ebbed and its masters died off, the baring of literary artifice has come to be more and more a basic procedure—at times, almost an obsession—of serious fiction in the West.
The Times knew that in recent years Jeong had posted a series of unapologetically racist anti-white tweets. She had offered wisdom such as CancelWhitePeople" and expressed hatred for males.
Over at The Atlantic, there are also no ostensible rules concerning who is and is not fired, and for what reason. Essayist Kevin Williamson was allegedly dropped by Atlantic for his prior incendiary suggestion that abortion might warrant the death penalty. Fine, it is a free country, and private companies can fire whomever they chose.
But the Atlantic had no problem hiring writer Julia Ioffe. Again, the impression conveyed is that the Atlantic is not so concerned with inflammatory speech as with calibrating at whom the venom is directed. If Ioffe had tweeted the same perversities about Barack Postmodern essayist and his daughters, The Atlantic surely would have fired her immediately.
Instead, the pushback is due to the growing sense that rules are made up ad hoc. View Cartoon Mueller is investigating suspects for lying to federal officials, improperly lobbying foreign interests, obstructing justice and violating federal statutes.
Yet his team only seems concerned with those crimes to the degree that Donald Trump might be implicated. Otherwise, Mueller appears to have little interest in violations by FBI or Department of Justice officials who likely violated the law out of their worry over, or hatred for, Trump.
No doubt former Trump associate Paul Manafort deserves the scrutiny of the Mueller investigation.
But he was in the same questionable business as his liberal counterpart, Tony Podesta brother of Hillary Clinton campaign adviser John Podesta. Both wheeler-dealers have been mentioned in media reports of Russian collusion and have a long history of leveraging their political contacts for foreign cash.
But only one so far has been indicted and not for collusion. Mueller has searched in vain for obstruction of justice. Steele claims that he enlisted Russian sources to gather gossip on Trump in an attempt to sway the election. This same sort of asymmetry also applies to social media.
The impression again is that the acceptance of hate speech depends on who is hating whom. The social media exemption given to the racist rants of Sarah Jeong illustrated that well enough.
In these polarized times, Americans are not so much angry that newspapers and magazines fire reporters, or that Robert Mueller indicts those under suspicion.
When there is no blind code of justice, people suspect that our institutions define wrong behavior and bad words as those in service to the wrong political agenda. And they are right.Abstract This article, an introduction to a special issue of the Journal of Military Ethics devoted to emerging military technologies, elaborates the present status of certain predictions about the future of warfare and combat made by postmodern essayist, Umberto Eco, during the First Gulf War in A Manifesto Against the Enemies of Modernity.

One on my poems from LAST SEXT called Forgotten Sound won a Pushcart Prize. I didn’t think a Pushcart was a big thing, because a lot of ppl get nominated for them and you always see the nominations in people’s bios, but apparently it is a thing.
