The funny thing about all of this is that those supposed public intellectuals who carried the water for this moral panic and the repressive policies that have come out of it will just pretend that they had nothing to do with it, and it was all for the sake of freedom of speech
Critical Race Theory is under your children's bed at night, waiting for the perfect time to jump out and make them question the myth of America
Must be a coincidence that all of those voices have little to nothing to say about the anti-CRT laws and the panic that has ensued, after they had everything to say about protests, statues, and the 1619 project

God forgive me for showcasing LBC but this is such an easy dismantling of the nonsense position of idiots who have been booing the players. All it takes is a slight pushing back on any of the nonsense defense that they have to expose how insulting all of this silly shit is.
The only reason that this has even become an "argument" is because media members invented pseudo-intellectual positions after the fact to justify the booing because they can't handle possibly saying that the fans are being stupid
Do you even know how fucking stupid it is that "they're concerned about marxism" and "it's about economic anxiety" or "BLM is about violence" really is? It's the type of defenses that should get laughed at, but are instead taken seriously, because you can't say the obvious thing

"Sanctimony literature errs, then...because it displays no genuine curiosity about what it really means to be good, and is blind to the distinction between morality and moralism, and exhibits no doubt about its own probity" libertiesjournal.com/now-showing/sa…
I haven't written a book so I'm probably not one to comment but my position on this has always been that these novels/written are naturally more interested in the aesthetics of certain politics than the life itself, and the writers are too afraid to condemn their characters.
I know why people like sanctimonious books but they're barely interesting. Even worse is the opposite, the supposedly provocative books that are just the status quo presented as shocking.

This has been the hidden fact behind the lack of many covid photos here and the defense that it's about consent. It exposes who is accepted as a human being with dignity and who isn't. They were waiting, questioning, and frustrated that Africa didn't have a catastrophe with Covid
And that's not to let the governments off the hook because the virus is killing a lot of people and they're helping it, but Western media REALLY wanted it to be bad in the continent so they can take photos of the dead and point and say "look at those uncivilized savages dying".
I would even say that the Western world needs to continue painting Africa as Joseph Conrad did, the land of savages, in order to maintain the idea of itself as the place of civilization and enlightenment

Mortal Kombat was a lot of blah but I just want to say that Sub-Zero was undefeated one on one
Sub-Zero (Bi-Han, Kuai Liang and Noob) have always been the best MK characters. Full disrespect to everyone else.
"It's mindless fun" also seems to have replaced "let people enjoy thing" as the go to defense for obviously badly done movies and entertainment.
