crime and punishment

leave a comment »

The sentence that is wrong in this otherwise interesting post is this one:

“Perhaps this is our world-historical punishment for the failure of communism.”

Who is the “our” in that sentence? Who is doing the punishing? Who is it that’s concerned, in that sentence, with the failure of communism?

Got to take care with your metaphors, as they’ll trick your political analysis into theology… And theology leads, as it always has, to the worst sort of quietism.
