Probably. In history, we’re always assigned either Discipline and Punish or History of Sexuality because those are the only two that historians ever really cite.

Dude Karl Marx thought he was doing Science, that’s like the best joke
Somebody needs to make a picture of Marx holding up a beaker and yelling science.

Yeah the comments and replies by Said are interesting as well.
I totally missed those. Thanks.

By the way is this what you’re referencing: lrb.co.uk/v22/n11…
Yeah. That has to be the oddest thing I’ve ever read by Said.

Obama used to chill with Said no?
He went to Columbia when Said was there. I don’t know if they ever crossed paths. He was friends with Rashid Khalidi.
Reason fest? Hahaha. I no longer want to live in this world.
Yeah, the irony totally escapes them. I follow a few atheists on twitter (I hate myself) and nearly every weekend they’re going to some atheist festival to give talks about how stupid religion is.
Some people need to read up on the French Revolution. They’re trying to repeat the Enlightenment without having any of the sophistication of the Enlightenment writers.
Umm excuse me, remember when Dawkins was banned from giving a talk at a conservative shithole after his interview with Bill O Papa Bear? Atheists did something, they sued. It’s called SCIENCE.
And they have reason fest. Can’t forget that. It’s where they gather and celebrate reason. I think they should make it weekly. Maybe they can even have a reading from the book of the God Delusion and have a lecture on how to more properly science the world.
