Fraternal anger ...

... Martin Amis: the sexual revolution killed my sister Sally.


  1. Yes, let's blame ideology, shall we? Marxism is responsible for my bad back. Libertarianism is responsible for my ingrown toenail. Capitalism is responsible for my migraine (well, actually somewhat true). Humanism is responsible for my libido. And Buddhism is responsible for my erect nipples. Who needs psychosomatic follies when you can have the ideosomatic ones?

  2. I agree, Ed. It isn't as if one doesn't have to actually assent to an ideology - though I would, of course, caution against ever doing so. Oh, and that migraine? Probably caused by corporatism more than capitalism per se.
