    I read, "Doonesbury", everyday because it is not so much a comic as a guide to life.

    Probably Kierkegaard.

    But that's just because I like how he doesn't try to build any first philosophies or whatever and just plays around with values.

    Nietzsche is great too but preachy. Not as much fun to read.

    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    When I quoted the post I saw that in white you had provided a tagline saying that you were actually kidding about one to six of the above, I was surprised that you liked Andrea Dworkin's philosophy, what I remember of it is simply that all heterosexual sex is rape. Alienated a lot of heterosexual women from feminism with that one.

    I've read some great biographical stuff about Dworkin, a lot of it by her gay husband and close friends, she seems to have been a seriously troubled individual with a very saddening life story or personal history. When the rash of women being doped and raped took place she wrote a story about how she had been a victim of this very thing and I believe that some of her closest confidants and supporters actually had come to doubt that story before she died but didnt say so until after she had died.

    It makes me think of Valarie Solanes (spelling), the woman who shot Warhol and wrote the SCUM (society for cutting up men) manifesto. She had an insanely bad life at the hands of just about every man she'd ever known.

    Although in both cases I think there's a bit of a problem with them generalising their personal experience to all women, and then everyone, then it getting taken up by people who've never had anything like that kind of experience who give unwary people hell who then go on to give others hell who produce books like those that helped in triggering the whole damn thing. Its something like the "troubles" publishing that used to be popular here in Northern Ireland and which probably did contribute to the trauma which was a strong feature in the troubles reproducing itself, spreading and becoming some how normative.

    Anyway, I've read a lot of those books, didnt like them much at the time, dont like them much now, tend to be surprised when people do like them.
