You claim to be a “cynic,” but you are a huge conformist.

The center says the left and the right are the same.

They are right in one respect: the left and right are political, while the center is not.

I have seen the enemy.

I’m pretty sure his name isn’t Derrida or Foucault.

Left polarities.

The first pole is aesthetic: the drive to create. The second pole is political: the drive to emancipate.

Today’s university feels no need to “buy off” radical intellectuals, who in professing the discourse of the university have no purchase whatsoever.
