|As always, there's a touch of truth in what Kant says. But no more than that.|
And it's written in his familiar awkward, tortured, garbled, strangled style. This over-intelligent, over-educated, cowardly, effete, sissy-boy intellectual has a semi-illiterate, pot-boiler writing style which is nearly impossible to scan or peruse, and an agony to read.
In the intellectual, philosophical, and literary history of mankind, good writers and good thinkers are virtually one and the same. The reason why all those Keynsian and welfare-state economic writers write so poorly is because they have rocks in their head. Their anfractuous, serpentine, incomprehensible, illiterate style gives them away. (uh-oh...)
Kant once said "Never a straight thing was made from the crooked timber of man." But the fact is "Never a straight thing was written by the crooked pen of Kant."
Michael: Why did you even post this -- just to torture us? ;-)
