What Box?

A useful criticism

explains

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"
