"If our words were called human, heavy, anarchic, beatific, right on,
poetic, it would all just feel so right.
Of what use are ideas and actions that avoid market rationality?
Of what use are ideas that disallow their own institutionalization?
Of what use are words that avoid capitalist functionalization?
Of what use are ideas that are dangerous?
The flippant rumor circulated by the Right that the Clinton staff stole,
upon vacating the White House, all the G's and W's from the computers
clearly reveals the link between the written word and power."
