‘‘The role of critic has become just one more sinecure passed around among our self-appointed mandarinate, who understand neither popular art nor the people who enjoy it, and whose critical efforts are devoted largely to reinforcing their mandarin status.

The role of ‘internet administrator’ is rapidly becoming another, with the added mandarin cachet of almost total anonymity outside the field and almost total power within it.’’

‘‘The Progressive Left, cannot allow anything to exist which does not parrot the party line.  Anything with even a whiff of free expression must be suppressed.  Visual arts, music, books, magazines, film, whatever.  All must be controlled; practitioners must be monitored; miscreants driven out or underground.  That’s why e-publishing is so frightening.  We’ve left the world the Samizdat and it scares the Left immensely.’’
- ‘‘RC’’ commenting at The Other McCain
