A useful criticism
What is the relationship of not only silence, "sins of omission" to existing
and possible, potential writing and criticism, essays, but also what is
their relationship with what a Russian artist has said re language--that it
is a fascism in that it is not silence which stifles, which censors, but a
"being forced to speak," which is the objective of torture--not to elicit
"the truth" so much as to force a speaking from the subject, regardless of
its content--to force a formal construction--a "confession,"
"intelligence"--which as "language material" exists as "proof" that
something has been articulated which recognizes and affirms, "proves," the
"rightness" of the State, its wars, its language, its Institutions--
What is bad?
scholar vs. academic vs. "biz"
