Class enemy

Have you noticed the exact parallel between the phrases "white privilege" and "class enemy?" They're used for the same ends, by the same kinds of people--just in different eras.

BTW, Grim recommended a New Criterion essay about Solzhenitsyn; I second the suggestion.

Same. I liked the line "Great novels test ideas not by their logical coherence, as in academic philosophy, but by the consequences of believing them."

Experimentalists, not theorists.
