Privilege Wars | Clarissa’s Blog
In the end I found I could never dumb my own writing down enough. I had to deal with this confusing issue in the nineties when everyone seemed to believe that language conveyed objective truths or if it didn’t you, the writer, were a hysteric.

The cost and benefit of this evolution away from belief in the potency of LOGOS is that people will aim to talk to those who are already similar in terms of intellect, knowledge and possibly background, compared to in the recent past. The high will talk to the high and the low to the low and the spiritual middle class will talk to the spiritual middle class.
