Normally when I post something I think needs reading I’ll snip a graf or two and offer some comment. Not on this one. Every brutally penetrating passage (and there are a couple dozen at least) serves the rising momentum of the whole in such a way that any excerpt, taken out of context, would lessen the power and relevance of the essay.
Stop what you’re doing. Read this. Read all of it. Read it now.
