Arendt-Blogging 2.0

November 13, 2008

As some may know, I’ve been working my way through The Origins of Totalitarianism lately.  And last night, while I was reading the beginning of her section on Totalitarianism, I had an epiphany: accusations of Obama being some sort of crypto-Marxist proto-dictator by otherwise intelligent people all lie in having not paid attention to what they were actually reading when they made their ways through it!  It’s simple, and everyone wins, because the only other explanation is intellectual dishonesty!

(Okay Mr. Soon-to-be-President: don’t go do anything stupid and/or crazy that makes me look like a fool for writing this post, please?  And besides, it’d be unconstitutional for you to be a cryto-Marxist dictator, and we can’t have that, now can we?)
