The pleasure of irrational ranting

Razib sez:
I suppose you could say that I’m your typical individual with a scientific & operationally materialistic worldview. I’m also mildly right-of-center, and tend to have as many issues with Post Modern “progressives” thought as I do with Religious Right reactionaries. Like the Religious Right I do believe there are truths in this world which are sacred and worth fighting for, that not every human interaction need be broken down into “power relations,” or scaffolded by an armada of faux jargon. Unlike the Religious Right I tend to reject the supernaturalist view of the world which is the human consensus, and, I am generally a dissenter from “conventional” traditional mores and preferences. I have my own peculiar values which are at sharp variance with most of humanity. Nevertheless, sometimes I play the boob, and pretend as if I am a Post Modernist victimologist (to use John McWhorter’s terminology), or a religious traditionalist or an ethnic activist, and it feels very good. In As Good as it Gets Jack Nicholson said “I think of a man, and I take away reason and accountability” when he writes about women. When I play “the game” I simply remove all reason and accountability, and I start doing verbal “mash ups” without any coherency, and I feel like a kid in a candy store!
